PETER ROSENBERG

Peter Rosenberg Responds to Nicki Minaj Controversy, 'Not Sorry'


(AllHipHop News) After a media firestorm, his name becoming a trending topic, and after Young Money artist Nicki Minaj cancelled her performance at Hot 97’s Summer Jam, Peter Rosenberg has taken the time to speak out about his recent comments on the Summer Jam stage.

In an interview with TMZ, Peter Rosenberg elaborated on his comments made about Nicki’s song “Starships”, while introducing Kendrick Lamar on the Summer Jam stage.

“Basically it was the festival stage, which is traditionally the more underground stage, up and comer stage, and I went out there to introduce Kendrick Lamar from Compton, and you know, I just said if you are not about that ‘Starships” crap and you are about the real stuff – and I’m editing a bit, I’m about the real Hip-Hop. Let’s bring Kendrick Lamar,” Rosenberg explained to TMZ.

Rosenberg appeared to be surprised by the social media backlash after having made similar, if not worse, comments about the song in the past.

“Why would she listen to me? I’m a Jewish kid from the suburbs of Maryland who grew up on hip-hop and loves hip-hop. And I take it seriously. But it’s just an opinion, man. I don’t hate Nicki Minaj. I don’t have any beef with her at all,” Rosenberg told TMZ.

Since Rosenberg’s comments, Nicki Minaj has scheduled a free concert for her fans in the New York and New Jersey area.

    Let me get this straight: you book an artist to perform at your venue, say disparaging remarks about their craft and music at that venue but get upset because they wouldn’t perform? UH OK O.o Nicki Minaj should’ve jumped on stage, said “Fawk Rosenberg, now pay me for performing my music you insulted.”

  • Jewish kid from the suburbs is who runs hip hop now

    • Funny huh? He needs to get his jaw wored for talking sh*t!

    • Super_Hero

       Jewish kids from the suburbs been running hip hop. They are the reason you like Hip-Pop over Hip-Hop. They are the reason 2 Chainz is being forced fed to everyone in Hip Hop even thought he can’t rhyme. Jewish Kids from the suburbs are the reason the wack rappers sell. They are the reason why rappers rap about money instead of their people. They are the reason why the rap game is monopolies with only the same 5/6 artist going plat in the last 10yrs. They are the reason for Nicki commercial ads. If Nicki relied on her own people, she would still be broke rapping about sex and the hood instead of Barbie and starships.

    What’s the problem new jacks?

    He said this here…”Basically it was the festival stage, which is traditionally the more
    underground stage, up and comer stage”

    Is niki an underground artisit?

    Cats like whining about any and everything….If you like to whine go to the hair shop and whine there…fruitcakes

    aha

  • Fawk him.

  • Lion King

    He ain’t gotta apologize: he’s Jewish.  Guess thats why Drake hasn’t spoken on this yet….and he’s always quick to defend Nicki.

  • finally… a man that stands behind what he says… saigon needs to take notes!

    • trflow72

      I respect what you just said homie/but what nicki and young money is doing for hiphop isnt perfect but theyre opening the market for us as a culture to make money on a wider range/and id everybody has something to say about starship but thats only one item in a store that we dont have too support/if you follow me/we’re not gonna like everything that these artist do or anyone does/just like that outcast song “hey ya”i hated that song/but they still one of my favorite groups of all time and knowing nicki is nice she just doing her to get her money/just like if a job call you and they got yoy working on wallstreet and you start to pick up a new set of friends/nobody can get mad at you/youre just getting your money in a different way/thats called a hustler/so like my man ceaza luciano says/lets not gate lets congradulate WORD!!!!

  • I can care less but this dude doesnt make sense to me! I understand what he said about it being the “underground” stage but why disrespect an artist that is performing at your show? Even if she is not “underground” she was performing there so why not disrespect an artist that isnt performing at your event?

    In any case…I’m not a Nicki Minaj fan anyway but dude seems to be a bit of an a$$hole and since he isnt even a part of the community that produces hip hop, he should get his jaw wired on GP lol.

    Who cares, it was like a festival. That’s why no one makes any money but the radio stations. If contracts was involved, her weak rappin azz would be on stage and the radio station would have made a public apology. No contracts, and you get mf talking this and that, blah blah blah and cry babies leaving cuz they azz aint kissed right. My opinion, GMB is wack as fcuk and bad for hip hop period. Minaj is nothing more than a dumb down version of Lady GA GA, Wayne is a Homo Thug Puppet getting pimped by Baby, Drake can sing (wore a few chicks out to his slow sh!t) but stop trying to be hard dude, everyone knows your nerdy azz was getting you lunch money took like the rest of the geeks. Tyga don’t know what the fcuk he wanna be period. Rest of the label is HAS BEENS OR NEVER WAS. Hot 97, don’t invite people on you sh!t so you can get a younger or bigger crowd. That was weak in itself, like I said, I don’t like GMB; so i don’t buy they crap, don’t support it period. Im not gonna invite somebody I don’t like somewhere just to diss them. Fear and embarrassment will get somebody put in the dirt fast as fcuk.
     

    • “Drake… everyone knows your nerdy azz was getting you lunch money took like the rest of the geeks.”

      LOL That almost made me spit my drink out!

  • Jas1ne

    He aint gotta apologize for nothing! He said what everyone else is afraid to say.

  • Fake a$$ MC Serch lol

  • jsj23

    Here we go again. Outsiders(Rosenberg) telling the makers of their own culture what is “real” and what isn’t.

    • Nah slim….P was right on the money with that 1….Starships ain’t Hip Hop B, that’s some other ish

      • jsj23

        He was out of line.  Nicky’s fans were there to see her.  He is not the talent.  Let the audience decide what they want to hear (via record and ticket sales).  His job is to introduce artists, not define musical genres.  

  • Brick Soulja

    This guy is a total idiot and has absolutely no talent.

    •  Neither does nicki for that matter.

      • jsj23

        If Nicky has no talent then don’t invite her! Don’t make her the headline!  Fake clowns like Rosenberg always overcompensate by saying stupid shit like “I’m all about “REAL” hip hop, I’m all about this and that “keeping it real”.  He needs to stay corporate and just introduce.  Keep his opinion to himself!

  • hjones219

    She Could have honestly just got on the stage a said F%$# that nigga and this would have been resolved but they pull her on that BS but he they did the peple in the crowd a favor Nicki Minaj aint nothing but a fake @$$ Lady Gaga who bars suck and dropped a Trash @$$ album but F@#$ YMCMB except Drake and Tyga….. Drake a H0E though but that dude can rap

  • Seriously?  White Jewish Kid from suburbs of Maryland?  Who gives a pair of wet dingo balls what he thinks of Nicki Minaj? She is getting paid whether or not he likes her music.

    • she gets paid from fuckn cash moneys whole crew just like drake. she can get her money however she wants but she wont get any respect

  • John Jones

    Nikki is trash. She should have bowed out of summer jam because of that not because of what Rosenberg said.

  • Max

    why are you clowns singling out nikki the whole young money family which includes dj kaleed crew as well did not perform in case u forgot

  • JimJames29

    What he said is kinda racist in a weird way, even if its self-deprecating or how you wanna call it. Hes still saying he can say whatever the fck he wants cause he’s not black… Thats at least backwards logic… its just a weird thing to say ya know?

    • James W

      seriously??? are you for real??

  • yuly135

    who gves a f if nicki makes a pop song in her album? Chris brown is R&B n made hip hop song but nobody says shit but now nicki makes her move n them nggas go at her wtf? she even said tha she wasn’t gonna sing tha song he just messed up everything. swears don’t hate nicki but talk trash about her song before her performance smh unprofessional 

  • tab58064

    At least Chris Browns hip-hop songs were pretty damn good unlike the pop shit that Nicki Minaj makes.  She just went too pop and far too often when a rapper makes that leap rap heads don’t want you back.

  • Dee

    if Nicki was proud of her song, she would of got on stage and said phuck u, rock the show just to prove him wrong…but obviously she knows her shit be wack, so she backed down..

  • rep87

    What a bullshit article and a waste of space used on AHH site the dj just got his 15min of fame and Nicki Nasty is a passing fad
