(AllHipHop News) This morning (June 5), Nicki Minaj revealed that she would play a free show in New York to make up with her fans that were disappointed that she didn’t play Hot 97’s Summer Jam after a conflict with the radio station.
Nicki Minaj told the Power 105 FM’s Breakfast Club (Angela Yee, Charlamagne and DJ Envy) that she was going to move forward with the efforts to make her fans happy, confirming what was previously rumored.
“Its still in the works, but its definitely gonna happen,” Nicki said of the free concert. “We gonna make it work.”
“This was actually Wayne’s suggestion. Wayne was like ‘Yo Nick, we can do our own show for the people. You don’t have to feel bad.’ Obviously, I felt bad. I don’t want to let my fans down period,” she continued. “We’re going to have fun.”
“In the beginning I felt it was horrible and then afterwards, I felt this happens for a reason. And like I said last night [to Funk Master Flex], [Summer Jam] needs to value [me]. No one has the right to treat you like this. I don’t care who you are.”

Nicki continued to implore that she was singled out because she was a female and that her stance was one that all females should assume in order to demand their respect from men.
“You could be at a freakin’ hot company and it doesn’t have anything to do with music. If you walking in that room and you are the only woman, especially, and you have men making fun of you and insulting you, you’re not going to walk in that room. You’re going to say, ‘Check yourself, get your s**t together. I put in my work like every man here. And until you can respect me, I’m not even walking or sitting in that room.”
“People saying, ‘You should have still walked on that stage and showed them.’ I don’t gotta show anybody s**t. I’m going to show you by what I don’t do. And what I don’t do is perform at a place where people don’t respect me.”
Nicki ended the interview where she called to thank The Breakfast Club for supporting her through the years.
