, basically what happened was Hot 97 morning show host Peter Rosenberg took the mic during a pre-Summer Jam festival and sh*t on Nicki Minaj’s single “Starship”, saying:
“I know there’s some chicks here waiting to sing ‘Starships’ later, I’m not talking to y’all right now. F*ck that bullsh*t. I’m here to talk about real hip-hop sh*t.”
Nicki Minaj, and her boss Lil Wayne took offense to Rosenberg’s comment. (The truth hurts?)
Wayne, who was already feeling some kind of way after being dissed by the Oklahoma City Thunder NBA team, took to his Twitter page to complain bitterly about Rosenberg’s insult.
This is what happens when celebrities bite the hands that feed them. Once rappers reach a certain plateau in their careers, they get amnesia and they forget that the big market radio stations (and their fans) are responsible for their careers.
When no apologies were forthcoming from Rosenberg or Hot 97 — Nicki Minaj pulled out of the HOT 97 Summer Jam.
Wayne (who was set to make a surprise appearance that night) and other YMCMB artists, DJ Khaled, Busta Rhymes, and Ace Hood, also pulled out of the concert.
