Nicki Minaj speaking the truth on twitter about racism (7/23/14)
Gimmie a break. Everyone can succeed if they work hard.
u would say that because your white
How did I know you would say that. Nikki is black and she makes more than me. #icomeinpeace
I see that went right over your head…Nicki’s post had nothing to do with money but it had all to do with the music industry today
what I’m saying, If I must address the rap world and the so call “beef” between iggy and nicki. Nicki Minaj has worked her ass off to make a name for herself in the industry, not only as a rapper but as a pop star too. She had songs like super bass and starships but also gave iconic verses like the monster feature, just to show people that she can survive in both lanes.
Not to mention that she also had 3 memorable mixtapes to back up her hip-hop credentials and now has to sit and watch as a mediocre rapper like iggy get praised as the new rap queen off of a few catchy choruses and plus the fact that she is white. I don’t know about you but I would be pissed if I didn’t get the credit I deserved too.
Iggy was born in Australia and grew up on a farm, dropped out of high school, moved to the U.S. when she was 16 and met a guy that was in his 20s that eventually hooked her up with modeling agencies. Dude was basically her sugar daddy because he paid for her first apartment and all her expenses. She comes out with a couple of mixtapes and an EP that non of which are critically acclaimed. Drops some singles from her album like Work, Change Your Life, and Bounce (non of which cracked the top 50 on billboard).
So then she releases Fancy, now Clear Channel (which owns 840 radio stations in the US) has a voting system that saves artist if their songs aren’t doing so well on the charts, it’s called the “on the verge” program. They voted to add Iggy’s song Fancy to every station and that song must get 150 spins from each one. (that’s how u hear the same song 4-5 times in one hour)
That made Iggy’s song get stuck in people’s heads so they eventually bought it and that’s how iggy became a huge star. Not by hard work, not by rap skills, not by good songs but by people feeling pity on her flopping singles so they had to save her career. Iggy is not seen as a rapper, she is in the same category as Pitbull, flo-rida and Macklemore, they all will have top tens and possibly #1s but are never looked at as great rappers.
Iggy has been putting out mediocre music that is catchy to garner the attention of the pop/mainstream world but has yet to release anything that makes her a great lyricist/rapper. Iggy’s complexion and body has gotten her more attention than her music. Now u can say that nicki uses her body to for attention too but she captures ur attention with her body and u stay captivated by her metaphors, flow, versatility, and the lyrics of her songs.
( notice how I didn’t mention Iggy’s fake accent when she raps or her horrendous album sales compared to Nicki’s first album… but that’s none of my business🐸☕️)
PS: If u don’t mind, when u address the queen her name is spelled N I C K I not Nikki. thanks
I forgot I responded like this lol… I was definitely in my feelings
Damn. I learned something new.
Tell these privileged basics, Queen Nick !!!
Best retaliation, tbh. There’s no way to refute anything you said.
FUCK. You went in. True though..
Where is the lie???

I really hate seeing people using others culture as trends. You devalue the purpose of it by doing so. And quite frankly, it’s disgusting.
Aka white folk with dreads tbhAka white folk in general tbh
"It’s just silly"…… I think you’re confusing an actual time consuming, care required, traditional hair style with unwashed heathen heads. Bye.
So, what? You’re a hair elitist? Seriously? They’re both dread no matter how you make them.
This man said “they’re both dread” , you’re literally insane .
How… What…? Letting your hair grow into dreads naturally and styling them to be dreads… they are both dreadlocks… I don’t get how I’m insane. Or how it’s culture appropriation. Give me one good source that definitively says that dreadlocks were invented by native Africans or whatever culture you’re trying to defend at this point.
I’m really mad this man said “native Africans” , like that shit just made me itch . This man don’t even know the origin of locs talking bout some damn “native africans” , if you leave a black persons hair unkempt for some time it gradually locks on its own sort of like what bob marleys looked like , the same can not be said for white people . When you leave white peoples hair unkempt it simply becomes greasy and matted , it’d be a major insult to call that dreads . You also see a lot of white people saying “just combed out my dreads” if you can fucking comb out your “dreads” THEY ARE NOT DREADS, THATS WHY ITS CALLED DREADLOCKS!!!
White people literally have to DAMAGE THEIR HAIR , in order to attempt the slightest resemblance of dreadlocks . You also often see white folk putting a bunch of rubberbands and beads on their “dreads” , if you have to do this , they are not dreads
Right but I’m stuck on the “native Africans” part. Dude white supremacy gives you privilege to literally not know anything. Lol
Oh my god. I semi get y’all’s points but you still don’t know what you’re even talking about. BLACK PEOPLE CAN COMB OUT THEIR DREADS. It is possible actually. I know a couple people who have. If y’all are gonna try to tear this kid down for a fucking hairstyle please have some kinda hutzpah and back up evidence.
At a certain point yes you can comb the out but I have dreads also my mom’s a stylist and at a certain point they become unable to be combed out… Now you CAN go back in and cut the knots out and comb them but you’d lose a lot of hair which basically would be the same as cutting the Damn things off. So really yes it’s “possible” but at the same time not really. If that makes sense
If they aren’t all the way locked then yes you can comb time out but once they grow to a certain point you can’t. Trust me I know this for a fact. My mom’s boss is a loc professional and studies them.
Yes it is possible to comb out black peoples dreads , but it can literally take days up to weeks . The longest I’ve heard was 3 weeks
Not to mention the possibility of a lot of damage and shedding
