Since crash-landing onto the music scene, rapper Nicki Minaj has amassed many a fan, yet also many a critic. Seemingly fed-up with the back-chat, the Young Money star, took to Youtube recently to formally address ‘the haters’. Peep an extract as well as the entire video below…(Spotted over at our girl Necole Bitchie)
“I don’t respond to stupidity because I don’t have to. I don’t need it for publicity and people that do that…need it. ”
“I spend so much time counting that green paper that for me to take my time out for stupid foolish, strawberry shortcake bum b*tches that live on planet bum would almost make me… as low on the totem pole as they are.”
And there it is.
While I’m not yet sold on Nicki’s style of rapping (that faux-English accent is a no-no), it’s hard to deny how successful she’s been in getting folks to sit up and pay attention. She’s also one of, if not ‘the’, most charismatic female MC’s to emerge in a long while – which has to count for something.
In any case, it appears the joke is on her detractors; while her name and career are on the up, the same can not be said for many of those popping off.
