Nicki Minaj Teases New Music On ‘UStream’ / Takes Aim At Ghost Writer Using Rappers?

Published: Thursday 12th Jun 2014 by David

Nicki-Minaj-That-Grape-Juice-501

While her music videos and live performances haven’t always been up to par, Nicki Minaj has never had any problems scoring acclaim for her lyrical prowess, celebrated for penning the music that took her from Hip Hop upstart to world renown megastar.

Unfortunately, not all of her contemporaries can boast of such a feat, oft ridiculed behind industry doors for enlisting ghost writers to create material they go on to pass off as their own work, dipping into their budgets to pay said writers for their ideas…and silence.

This, as fans of Minaj learned, hasn’t gone unnoticed by the rapper, who took subtle aim at her lyric-deficient rivals during a ‘Ustream‘ session launched to promote her latest single ‘Pills N Potions.

What she had to say on the matter?

Her remarks below…

After promising to wow fans with cuts pulled from her forthcoming album ‘The Pink Print’, Nicki shared:

I really really have to finish writing this verse cos unlike…I write.

Hit the 19 minute mark to catch the quote…

With her comment in mind, we ask…

Should performers (specifically rappers) be obliged to write their own material?

Weigh in below!

      Herself

  3. Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez June 12, 2014

    Everyone uses Ghostwriters and I believe this b**** uses some too. She knows how to deliver her lines but I don’t believe she wrote all of her hits and verses.

    • VisionofMimi June 12, 2014

      Why don’t you believe that’s possible? Because she’s a woman?

      • truth (the PIinkShit will surely FLOP!! Just like PissAndFLOPtion honey) June 12, 2014

        No ho, bcus she DONT!! This bitxh still gunnin for kim and kim payn her DUSTY ass dust!! This girl is a bonified FLOP!! and so is yo mammy…the wain pusssy sl-LUT!!!

      • Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez June 12, 2014

        I believe she writes her own material but I do believe she does have writers for her. Male rappers also have ghost writers, I fail to see your point

      • truth (the PIinkShit will surely FLOP!! Just like PissAndFLOPtion honey) June 12, 2014

        Oh no shade i know she writes alot of her in stuff and i have no problem admit she can spit. The girl DOES have skills but she a fu ck up person tho and THATS y i drags her. Her attitude stank!

    • Brandy stan June 12, 2014

      Said the TROLL..B.I.C.R B**** stfu.

  4. SlayaraHarris June 12, 2014

    It’s so easy to see that TGJ knows so much tea but holds back 2bh. I just clocked that they were talking about a Drake and Wayne tour weeks ago and now are spilling some tea about these ghostwriters. I’m scrying at Nicki’s accurate Iggy shade though.

    • truth (the PIinkShit will surely FLOP!! Just like PissAndFLOPtion honey) June 12, 2014

      She jealous hahahahahahahahaha!!!

  5. BarbzRUS June 12, 2014

    • truth (the PIinkShit will surely FLOP!! Just like PissAndFLOPtion honey) June 12, 2014

      That b**** hatin on iggy and iggy payn her DUST LOLOL KII!!!

  6. DanitySlain June 12, 2014

    Lauryn, Missy and Nicki are the only ones who write their lyrics and have them come out sounding good. Some of the other girls write too but it’s wack. Kreayshawn had a good ghostwriter so maybe Iggy should get his or her number from her.

    • truth (the PIinkShit will surely FLOP!! Just like PissAndFLOPtion honey) June 12, 2014

      Icki writes her shyt??? Bitxh sew yo pusssy hole up and put a b*** plug in yo ass. S*** u crazy ass TALKN shyt how bout u be full of shyt too u ho. Let the shyt pile up in u. (Flips wig)

  7. Nextome June 12, 2014

    Why she look like a white woman???

    • OVOBarbie June 12, 2014

      Why DOES she look like a white woman?

      • truth (the PIinkShit will surely FLOP!! Just like PissAndFLOPtion honey) June 12, 2014

        HO CAN U SEE!!!!!?

  8. BeySting June 12, 2014

    Beyonce writes all of her songs but Rihanna hasn’t written ANY of her number ones, which is fine if you’re into being a lazy puppet I guess.

    • realMusic June 15, 2014

      Beyonce does not write all her songs

  9. Yea ok June 12, 2014

    I wish y’all would stop letting blogs like TGJ manipulate you and cause u not to use common sense. I’m not saying nicki doesn’t write but you all are foolish if you think she has never had a ghostwriter. I mean come ON. The fact that she is even trying to call out anyone else is Laughable. Waits for her to be exposed. It always happens. Eventually.

  10. JER June 12, 2014

    The only ghost here is the ghost of her career past BYE

  11. Molly June 12, 2014

    Why is this flop even talking after her cheap n potions video came out haven’t seen a video that low budget in awhile

    • BarbieWorld June 12, 2014

      Lool. You worry about The New Classic and I’ll worry about Pills N Potions which sold 200k in three weeks. B****.

      • Molly June 12, 2014

        200k in 3 weeks? no wonder that s***** song hasn’t made top 20 yet she should’ve thrown drake on the track then maybe the clown could’ve got a hit.

    • nicko June 12, 2014

      Pills N potions is doing pretty well. The New Flop cant even sell 200k after MONTHS. Pls shut the f*** up n go buy iggys album. Ure as cocky and stupid as ur fav

      • Molly June 12, 2014

        And your as simple and basic as your fav if you think selling 200k in 3 weeks is something to be hype about.

    • Brandy stan June 12, 2014

      So said lonely Molly.

    • Warriornika June 12, 2014

      But you Stan for FLOPara and Iggy!!
      Nick> Ciara
      Azealia banks> Iggy tbh

      • Molly June 12, 2014

        Still waiting on roman reloaded to sell a million in America like Ciaras album did… Also waiting on Ms.Azealia to finally release something that charts on the hot 100.

        Iggy got 3 songs in the hot 100 you mad huh?

      • Barb B**** June 12, 2014

        That pitiful attempt to read makes NO sense at all. Last time I checked, Ciaras last album didn’t sell 200k. RR has. So why tf are you pulling up old receips when Nicki has Pink Friday which has sold over a million.

  12. BeyBeyKing June 12, 2014

    Talking about Casting Couch Iggy and Tax Dodging Kim.

  13. MarlonMaraj June 12, 2014

    At this point we need to accept that TGJ don’t miss a f****** thing. Like how in the actual f*** did you find out about this ustream when only her fans knew about it? I want to know.

  14. Rosie June 12, 2014

    So she threw shade towards Iggy? Someone’s threatened.

    • HighwayUnicorn June 12, 2014

      Threatened by what?

    • nicko June 12, 2014

      She could also be talking about kim.

    • Molly June 12, 2014

      Death at these girls says flops n potions is doing well cause it sold 200k in 3 weeks when Gagas applause sold 250k in 1 week.

      • nicko June 12, 2014

        Dont compare a POP star to a RAPPER. Pills N Potions debuted on the BB HOT 100 @ #47 with only two days of sales. It is now #43 n expected to peak thx to the music video. Lets not forget how fancy struggled. Stop hyping iggy n her only hit cause Nicki got TONS of those, and PNP is about to be another one.

      • Molly June 12, 2014

        But wasn’t icki going the popstar route last era? lol please save the excuses b**** and lets stop acting like pills n potions is some kind of hardcore rap song when its just as generic as her other singles what serious rapper works with Dr.Luke though?

      • Barb B**** June 12, 2014

        Molly stfu. Do you have a thing for stanning for flop artists?

      • Me. I Am MoJo JoJo Blige June 12, 2014

        @nicko Sorry To Burst Ur Bubble, But Nicki Minarg Is Pop! WhipIt, Va Va Voom, Starships, Etc. Are Pop Songs! If Anythin’, She’s Hip-Pop

    • Barb B**** June 12, 2014

      Please explain why Nicki would be threatened by someone struggling to sell 200k (especially after a #1)

  15. ONIKAFashuns June 12, 2014

    Grape Juice be on some next s*** 2bh and I can’t even be mad at em for it. On the real though, where do yall get your info from and how do you get that s*** so fast because ain’t nobody know about this stream besides TM.

  16. NastyNicki June 12, 2014

    Oh my gosh! What kind of espionage s*** is this?! WHO TOLD YOU ABOUT THE USTREAM? UGH, why you gotta be so good at yall jawbs.

  17. Skyfall June 12, 2014

    As far as singers go… It doesn’t matter. Whitney and Celine didn’t write but they Slayed with the vocals. However if your a rapper I feel like you should most definitely write your own material. Rap is just another form of poetry and in my option of you ain’t write the poem then b**** you ain’t a poet. So if they don’t write they own raps then they a fraud.

    • ,. June 12, 2014

      so true when ity comes to rapping you got to wright your own bars, singing is different though. you don’t have to wright that.

      • truth (the PIinkShit will surely FLOP!! Just like PissAndFLOPtion honey) June 12, 2014

        Learn to spell ho

  18. Pretty Nicki June 12, 2014

    Lol a hit dog will holler (Iggy stans)

  19. Skyfall June 12, 2014

    Iggy Stan’s are sooooo delusional it’s funny. Yes Fancy is a hit but after Fancy then what? She’s horrible Local seeing 90% of her sales come from the US. Her album is struggling… And if I really wanted to be petty the only reason her song Fancy is doing well is because of…the Chorus and it’s payola on radio, as seeing Problem has been outselling it for months.

    • truth (the PIinkShit will surely FLOP!! Just like PissAndFLOPtion honey) June 12, 2014

      Fat ho

  21. Barb B**** June 12, 2014

    She more likely threw shade at Lil Kim. Floppy Azelia aint on anyones mind. Her bandwagon stans need to calm it.

  22. Navy Nick June 12, 2014

    I do not KNOCK “ghostwrtiers”, although I feel some artists should write, it is NOT always a necessity. back in the day plenty of artists sang songs from others; it’s a lot of good writers out here, who cannot sing, and it takes a great artists to perform a song, to bring life to it. I LOVE NICKI THO! ha

    • Name (required) June 12, 2014

      RAPPERS should write.

  23. OMG Logic! June 12, 2014

    Shading other artists on UStream? That self shade though lmao! Icki is quickly becoming irrelevant and she knows it. Iggy is replacing her bleached ass.

    • Name (required) June 12, 2014

    • K June 13, 2014
