Lil Wayne says he pulled Nicki Minaj from Summer Jam because he feels women deserve the ultimate respect.
As reported by MSDTV, Peter Rosenburg dissed Nicki Minaj’ pop single ‘Starships’ while introducing Kendrick Lamar for Hot 97 Summer Jam. When head honcho, Young Money CEO Lil Wayne caught wind of it, he made the controversial decision to pull Nicki, who was headlining, and the rest of Young Money from the show.
Weezy explains to MTV News why he did it,
“That’s a female. First and foremost, Nicki Minaj is a female. I don’t know what anyone else believes, but I believe females deserve the ultimate respect at all times, no matter when or where or how.”
“As soon as she called me and told me she felt disrespected, I just declined everything. I pulled her from the show because . . . no person that works with me will be disrespected in my presence as long as I’m on this planet.”
