Nicki Minaj Talks ‘Forbes’ Claiming Iggy Azalea Runs Hip-Hop: “No Thank You”

c3922b0acd7d17f1b2fed6b416853d87 Nicki Minaj Talks ‘Forbes’ Claiming Iggy Azalea Runs Hip Hop: “No Thank You”

Nicki Minaj has responded to a Forbes article published on May 19, initially titled “Hip Hop Is Run By a White, Blonde, Australian Woman.”

While Forbes even changed the headline due to social media backlash (“The author offers sincere apologies to anyone who was offended by it”), the article’s claims remained the same: Iggy Azalea‘s rise in the charts has been swift, while Minaj has been “oddly quiet for months.” In response, the “Pills N Potions” star actually cackled. “Okay. I’m reloaded,” she said on Power 105′s The Breakfast Club.

“Listen. All Forbes needs to worry about is my finances and when I’m going to be selling Myx Fusions for $250 million,” Minaj added. “That’s all they need to worry about. We rely on hip-hop connoisseurs and blogs for that kind of information. So we appreciate it, but no thank you.”

Naturally, The Breakfast Club kicked off its brief chat with by talking about the Pink Print star’s latest output, also including hype tracks “Chiraq” and “Yasss Bish!” (Her recent Powerhouse set could have easily been mentioned, too.) But to recap: Minaj was criticizing Forbes for claiming she’s been “oddly quiet,” not for praising Azalea.

Earlier on, she also reminded Power 105 that she needed time to gain recognition and respect, like any other female rapper entering the scene. “Even when I was grinding and putting out tapes and stuff like that, it was hard for me,” she said. “It was a lot of work. It didn’t just happen overnight. It’s not a female-friendly business. Hip-hop is not female-friendly at all.” See Power 105′s chat with Nicki Minaj below.
