Nicki Minaj Comments As Boycotts Arise Over Malcolm X Imagery


(AllHipHop News) Nicki Minaj has expressed her views on the brewing controversy of the album art on “Lookin’ A** N***a,” which presents Malcolm X as the featured picture.

On Instagram, Nicki said the following:

What seems to be the issue now? Do you have a problem with me referring to the people Malcolm X was ready to pull his gun out on as Lookin Ass Niggaz? Well, I apologize. That was never the official artwork nor is this an official single. This is a conversation. Not a single. I am in the video shooting at Lookin Ass Niggaz and there happened to be an iconic photo of Malcolm X ready to do the same thing for what he believed in!!!! It is in no way to undermine his efforts and legacy. I apologize to the Malcolm X estate if the meaning of the photo was misconstrued. The word “nigga” causes so much debate in our community while the “nigga” behavior gets praised and worship. Let’s not. Apologies again to his family. I have nothing but respect an adoration for u. The photo was removed hours ago. Thank you.”

It might be a case of too little too late, as a new boycott has arisen over Nicki Minaj’s use of Malcolm X’s image.

The image, which has offended thousands, was on Nicki Minaj’s Instagram account, but the situation continues to draw ire.

Eventually, the image was taken down, but not before thousands of disparaging comments were posted on a number of social media outlets.

Now, Kevin Powell’s BK Nation and former U.S. vice presidential candidate Rosa Clemente have jump started separate boycotts that takes the Young Money rapper to task.

Clemente said in a statement, “Let’s stop Nicki Minaj, Young Money and their record labels from dishonoring the life and contributions of one of the greatest leaders of the 20th century.  I am asking anyone who is a lover of HIP HOP culture and who respects Black history to please sign this petition and force Nicki, Young Money and their record levels to take this down immediately. We cannot allow this to happen. As well please pledge not to buy ANY of their products and or work with them.”

Her letter was posted at the following link with a petition for fans to sign.

Kevin Powell’s BK Nation protest spoke similar sentiments, but also spoke to the content of the song as well.

“The song is bad enough: a berating assault—laced with the n-word, in hideous quantities—on men who don’t spend money on her; complaints about men staring at her assets even as her whole video is a pathetic display of such assets; a reduction of all male-female relationships to dollar signs.”

In the statement, he also took time to educate fans on the real reason Malcolm X was looking out of the window in the iconic image.

“Malcolm X carried a gun as he feared for the safety of his family and himself, and was aware he would some day be killed by political opponents. The image of Malcolm X looking out the window highlighted that fear. Nicki Minaj’s use of guns in her new music video speaks to the gun culture in our society today where gun violence is an acceptable norm.”

A number of op ed pieces have been written, most of which raise questions on whether or not the rapper is disrespecting the famous activist leader.

      Comment of the week….

  • Black Jay

    It’s kinda weird. But wasn’t Malcolm X looking out of his window for “N*ggas” when this picture was taken? Wasn’t The Nation physically threatening his family with death? If some Black or White dudes are trying to kill you and your family for your beliefs, isn’t it safe to call them “N*ggas”? Who do they think Nicki is talking about? Hardworking, upstanding, African Americans? Isn’t she holding some guns in her video?

    Correct me if I’m wrong but in the movie MALCOLM X wasn’t he laying in bed next to his rifle and wife when he said,

    “We’re running the greatest organization the world has ever seen. N*ggas ruin it.”

    I’m torn on this one. I ain’t no Nicki fan but Malcolm used that word quite frequently. This is a case of my people being too simple.

    • ReturnoftheBrotha .

      People love to rationalize things. It is the ongoing illuminati publicity/putting down blacks and religion, while raising up satan and gays thing – nothing more.

      • Black Jay

        No offense bro but you don’t know me well enough to say what I’m raising up. I simply posed questions. I said I was torn on it. There are some things I agree with and some that I don’t.

      • ReturnoftheBrotha .

        You did not simply pose questions, you made assertions and your ‘questions’ were not questions, but supposition. You make assumptions in the form of questions.

      • Black Jay

        First of all if I believe cars fly in the sky, that’s my opinion. I own that. And no dude named Returnofthebrotha (I never knew we left) is going to make me change that position. Don’t tell me what I meant because you didn’t write it. Y’all seriously on some sh*t nowadays. Kill that.

        But I find it kinda funny that she can show her ass and tits and say “n*gga this” and “n*gga that” and nobody boycotts. Nobody said sh*t about the lives she was ruining. but as soon as she puts up a photo of Malcolm X, people attack. Some of my people are so phony sometimes.
        Y’all people trip me out. Boycott from the beginning, not the end. If she’s bad, she’s bad. Don’t do it cause it’s a trend.

        Ask yourself this…. Do you care more about Young Black Children or Malcolm X’s legacy. Cause that’s the real question…

      • ReturnoftheBrotha .

        Cut and paste.

      • Black Jay

        Meant to. Y’all people are saying the same sh*t. You for the kids? Boycott from the beginning. You for Malcolm’s legacy? Boycott now on some bandwagon sh*t.

      • ReturnoftheBrotha .

        Are you Nicki or her publicist? If you are her, then I have some advice for you. Remove the butt and titty implants then I can thrown down in an don you. I can’t stay too long or marry you because I don’t want to be sacrificed!

      • Black Jay

        I ain’t no Nicki fan. I can’t stand that chick. But fair is fair. Don’t come on this joint acting like you some Pro Black militant dude that fights for every injustice. If you didn’t say sh*t about all of the little girls that were being harmed with this sh*t, don’t say nothing now. I have always been against Nicki from day one. I just didn’t need a picture of Malcolm X to tell me she was f*cked up. Did you? Bandwagon ass….

        YOU must be her publicist or something. You are cutting and pasting all over this board, just like @ReturnoftheBrotha was noting.

      hahaha..No this is a case of you being too simple..and we’re not any of your “People” if you cannot stand behind “a people” who see the blatant disrespect. Educate yourself, for when you know better than you will do better and hopefully THINK better. Your definition of what Nigger/Nigga means was not and will never be the same as what El Hajj Malik Shabazz understood it to mean..that is the issue alone, you need to study.

      • Black Jay

        Brother…. Please…. Don’t do that. You don’t know sh*t about what I know. I clearly stated that I was torn. I clearly put a lot of question marks behind my words. Don’t act all sensitive because I have my questions. And furthermore, your attacks contradict your position. You ask questions to seek answers. You don’t ask questions to get attacked. I think you need some knowledge yourself Black Man.

        What lives do you keep complaining about her ruining? Why aren’t you complaining about all these movies and video games that actually give an actual visual of how to really ruin lives? Funny how people get so sensitive over little shit. Maybe if people put these same type of efforts into the black community, maybe we can eliminate some of these black on black murders in some of these American cities like Chicago.

        You don’t know me, but trust me: Her eyes, cheeks, nose, chin, hips, buttocks, breasts and skin have been affected by plastic surgery. I know numerous people who either know her or people in her camp. She has been bleached and has had serious amounts of cosmetic surgery. She epitomizes self-hate, self-mutilation, self-sacrifice for fame and corporations, and hatred of Black people.

  • Black Jay

    Ohhhhhh…. So I get it….. People are getting mad because they’re thinking she’s calling Malcolm X a “Looking ass nigga”. Is that it?

    If she meant it like that then people should be mad. But judging from her explanation it wasn’t meant like that.

    I personally took it another way. Not that way. I took it as her putting herself in Malcolm’s position in the photo. Not to say that she’s a leader but on some “Hater” type sh*t.

    But I find it kinda funny that she can show her ass and tits and say “n*gga this” and “n*gga that” and nobody boycotts. Nobody said sh*t about the lives she was ruining. but as soon as she puts up a photo of Malcolm X, people attack. Some of my people are so phony sometimes. Y’all people trip me out. Boycott from the beginning, not the end. If she’s bad, she’s bad. Don’t do it cause it’s a trend.

    Who do you love more, Children or Malcolm X’s legacy? That’s the real question. Because none of y’all stood up for the kids and boycotted her ass from day one.

    • Colombian King

      I hear your point bruh, but why exploit Malcolm X like that? A lot of people will view that image a thousand different ways and may not get the real meaning of it. I Just feel that she should keep that mans legacy out of her shock trash music just to create some buzz. JMO

      • Black Jay

        I just get sick and tired of people’s sh*t sometimes. Some of this is legit but some of this sh*t is manipulated by factions of the old civil rights movement that want some shine.

        NOW THEY’RE ONLY DISCOVERING THAT NICKI MINAJ IS BAD?! How come nobody spoke up? All cause she did something offensive towards Malcolm X, now you want to open your mouth? What about all of the little girls that got their lives ruined by this chick? Nobody said a damn thing then. Some of my people are so f*cking fake! There’s no way a photo outweighs a little girl. Boycott from the beginning. Don’t get on no bandwagon sh*t cause you think it’s cool.

      • King Alvarez

        real shit fam! peoples double standards are ridiculous

      • Calico Joe

        There’s no double standards in this situation. How can you blame an entertainer for your childs behavior? That’s the dumbest sh*t ever.

      • Anonymous Hater

        “Entertainer”…. What’s entertaining about self-hatred, self-destruction and ignorance on a massive scale, pushed by billion dollar, foreign corporations?

      • Celz

        Influence is real. People are subconsciously attracted to the negative. Young adults and teens even more so. Many entertainers purposely attempt to emulate negativity that appeals to minors for financial gain. If you have a child in high school the only way to prevent them from hearing Nicki Minaj is by homeschooling them. Parenting matters but what about kids who’s parents are drug addicts? Gang Memembers? Cancer victims? Is that the child’s fault? Young Money counts on exploiting young minds that lack parental guidance. That’s a fact. What 30 year old man who has never skateboarded in his life launches a skate clothing line?

      • Calico Joe

        The little girl argument starts at home. If the parents heard her music I’m sure they wouldn’t let their daughters listen. Like you stated in another comment, you wouldn’t allow your daughter to listen to her, so those examples should be set by the guardian. I had a summer job at 14, went and got a gold grill, my momma seen it and literally slapped that sh*t out of my mouth. I’m just saying when it comes to the children, it starts at home.

      • Anonymous Hater

        That’s a completely different point.

      • Lance

        Idk about you but she takes education very seriously. Like Jay had said in Holy Grail “we’re just entertainers.” But she do know she have a fan base that consist of younger people and we know that she wants us to put books first, music and boys comes after. She’s always telling us to not give away our cookies to every tom, dick and harry. So her fans get it. For those who don’t it’s their lost. So you can’t criticize and judge her but yet you don’t know anything about her. If you don’t follow her of course you’re just going to see and criticize the image. I’ve been a fan since way before her debut came out and I’ve grown to love HER. That’s the difference between us and you common folks.

    • Celz

      I boycotted her ass from day one. But free speech does exist and unfortunately that is the perfect match for bad parenting.

      • Black Jay

        Cosign. But this sh*t absolutely infuriates me! I ain’t no Nicki fan but she’s been consistently bad. From the beginning. Now because of a photo all of the people want to boycott? What about all of the little girls she f*cked over? So you mean to tell me a photo is more important to us than the lives of little girls? I just hate some bandwagon ass people. Boycott from day one. Don’t hop on a bandwagon.

      • Spirit Equality

        Who gives a s–t which day people choose to boycott? We didn’t boycott the Montgomery buses from “day one”. SO? Does that invalidate the entire modern civil rights movement? You have no point. Find something better to get “infuriated” about.

      • Black Jay

        Oh….. So now Nicki is on your radar now? Let’s pray you didn’t have children dude. Bandwagons for all!

      • Celz

        Are you just talking or do you have an opinion on what the person above you said? No one said shyt about the civil rights movements. We said this bytch has been air pollution long before the Malcolm X pic. You are ignorant as hell if your comparing risking your families life and well being by raising up against the establishment to listening to degrading music on your own free will.

    What she meant by it is irrelevant. He was against the n-word, therefore she shouldn’t have associated his image with the word. Actually she shouldn’t associate his image with HERSELF due to the fact that she represents almost everything he was against. This broad had the audacity to compare herself to Malcolm X. Nicki, you weren’t doing anything but promoting gun violence; he was protecting himself and his family. And fyi, if nobody praised and worshiped “nigga” behavior as you put it, you wouldn’t have a career.

    KP: “complaints about men staring at her assets even as her whole video is a pathetic display of such assets; a reduction of all male-female relationships to dollar signs.” —- Equally true. At no point in history have we been so shitty as a people. We have little girls aspiring to be gold-digging hoes and strippers, little boys aspiring to “ballin baby daddies”… Our culture is centered almost entirely on negativity and being as ignorant as possible in a misguided effort to be a “real nigga”.

    It’s funny to me how some of my people take a word that’s mean to be an insult, and try to twist and turn it into something positive. The problem is the history of the word.

      1. That picture is fake. 2. She wasn’t calling Malcolm the Lookin Ass Nigga. If you listened to the song and knew the background of the picture you’ll see that she is Malcolm and she have a rifle ready to go at a Lookin Ass Nigga. I actually saw the video before I saw the picture so I’m not in an uproar like everyone else is.

        Malcolm would not approve of her using his image for the type of song it is. Actually, Malcolm would totally be against her image and her music for it’s lyrical content.

      • No.that was the cop out aplogogy her label wrote. What is x doing on the picture? Oh ok.genius.

    Man ful our black leaders. These motherfuckers dot stand for nothing and always out to down our ppl while actually supporting white folks. I remember Jesse Jackson bitch ass standing side by side with Kramer From Seinfeield after he called those 2 black couples niggers and shit. Talking bout forgive him and burying the N word. Where was all out black leaders last week when Zimmerman was considered a celebrity and trying to take part in a celebrity boxing match. We don’t have any black leaders because how can we have an actual leader of black ppl when our race is divided?

    @BigHomie337 Al Sharpton said alot about the Zimmerman fight where you been. Second I don’t agree with everything Jesse Jackson does but he has put his life on the line for black people so I would not call him a bitch you are free to criticize which is what this AHH comments section is for but other than comment online what have you done for black people in the physical form. Nikki Minaj was wrong glad she took that pic down her music is trash to me people have the right to listen to it and people have the right to boycott it does not matter when they decide to do it.

    Stupid trick needs to go back and read Malcom’s Autobiography. She’s done nothing to uplift Black girls or women. Zero! And her rebuttal will be to call the critics lookin ass ni99az. Cop out!

    She sounds like she has some level of intellect. But this ratchet nigga behavior she was talking about is all in her music. She’s a complete hypocrite and is trying to spin the argument by saying what her idea of the song was. Fact is this was a test to see if the masses would condone her dumb ass rhetoric and when it backfired she already had an apology ready. Ppl will do anything to remain famous. The allure of fame is the most deadliest drug known to man. It’s crazy ppl will do anything to keep that money train rolling in. Her last too singles content wise have been copies of other ppl. She has no originality. This is where hiphop is? In early 90’s you couldn’t dare get on by copying someone else’s style much less their music.. IE Aaron Hall?? Or was it R. Kelly? Lol either or originality use to get u respect in the music game not anymore..

    One of the greatest figures of all-time, has found his way back onto the international scene, even if through the last way anyone would have deemed possible.(smile) Make no mistake, Nicki knows what she is doing, and is far from ignorant when it comes to her heritage, but maybe this will get Young Money fans turned onto something else, pertaining to their history? If this is the only way Nicki’s “handlers” would have let her use something like this, around this time of year, I’m not that mad at her. I celebrate his birthday every year, even leaving the little ones home from school, and it’s about time EL got some mainstream shine, even if it is in this way. Now the so-called, “new generation”, can have some identification with those who gave their lives for them to be able to do what they do. Maybe some may even do some much needed research. Glass half empty mentalities, need not apply.

    • M Reed

      I FULLY AGREE. regardless of the song. it’s art. get over it. SO THE ONE TIME A WOMAN DECIDES TO TAKE HER ASS AND TITTIES OFF THE COVER – IT HAS TO GET TAKEN DOWN. oh okay, I get it.

      • DreadMighty

        She could have been in the photo herself. The use of Malcolm was wack in this song (which the song itself was actually sick) she could have gotten less beef replacing Malcolm wth herself in the same pose and still been working the angle.

      • Anonymous Hater

        I think the song really sucks, even for her. The production was just atrocious.

      • Anonymous Hater

        No, ignorance is ignorance, which I recognize is her MO 24/7.

    • Anonymous Hater

      You can’t be serious. Her music is ignorance defined, period. Attaching the ‘N’-word, along with her other ignorance to the memory of someone who fought from the polar opposite extreme can’t be reasoned.

      • Elayorx El

        When you have a “glass half full mentality”, anything can be reasoned. Respect.

      • Anonymous Hater

        Morality and reality aren’t malleable. In other words, face things as they are and call them as they are. There’s no spit-shining her ignorance. It has nothing to do with my attitude.

        From what I remember, NVP, reportedly a high-ranking Mason, was published by Lucis Trust (formerly Lucifer Publishing).

        Please quote someone else, even though he surely didn’t originate that quote. According to WikiPedia (bad source), it can be attributed to Elbert Hubbard. 🙂

      • Anonymous Hater

        No, that quote is from King Solomon, in Ecclesiastes.

      • Elayorx El

        Exactly. NVP for me. WickiPedia/Elbert Hubbard for you. Unknown for me. “King Solomon” for you. Again, and this has what to do exactly with the original issue?

        See, now if we was fencing, I could jump all over that first sentence. That’s peoples’ problem. They eyes are open, but the minds are wide shut. Fam, I’m bout liftin my folks up, and while I do agree Nicki is not the greatest example to follow, we can also recognize silver linings when granted the opportunity. No shade.

      • Anonymous Hater

        all trolling aside, what silver lining? I’m seriously trying here.

      • Elayorx El

        The one explained in my original comment.

      • Anonymous Hater

        You’re either blinded by heightened optimism, you’re trolling, or you have a vested interest in the “artist.” (artist? Ugh)

      • Elayorx El

        Well, never one to be quixotic, it’s not like I’m trying to get a law passed to have Nicki be part of public school curriculum for young girls or something. She is very talented, and maybe a little misguided.

      • Anonymous Hater

        I really shouldn’t take someone seriously who puts King Solomon in parenthesis, as The Holy Bible is the number one selling book of all time. Solomon, son of David, is believed to have written at least three of the books of The Bible.

      • Elayorx El

        Fam, again. Exactly. Number one selling book. I’m quite sure if all of the other sacred texts, ironically where the Bible has received much of it’s information, were, “up for sale”, the “number one selling book of all-time”, would indeed have some stiff competition. IJS

    What the f*** is her problem?! After all of the contributions Malcolm X has made to African-Americans, this is the respect and homage Nikki pays? Such a waste of publicity, especially during Black History Month. Could this girl be any more clueless? I know I may get some hate from my rant but she’s completely wrong for this, perhaps Nikki should take some of that Bugatti money and enroll in a HBCU so she can stop embarrassing herself. I was a “Barb” before this now I decline on her entire movement.

    How could you Nikki? We all make mistakes but never to insult the people who paved the way.. Now she’s completely out of pocket. Lil Kim was just a start..
