(AllHipHop News) Nicki Minaj has faced her fair share of controversy throughout her career. The latest criticism being thrown at the Young Money rapper is not over the usual complaints about hyper sexuality. Some observers are upset about Nicki’s new lyric video for her single “Only.”
The visual for the track displays a cartoon Nicki leading an army of soldiers that are wearing red arm bands similar to ones worn by Nazi Party members. The video also includes insignia featuring “YM”(Young Money) logos and scenes of warfare. Animated versions of guest vocalists Chris Brown, Drake, and Lil Wayne also appear in the clip surrounded by red regalia with the YM letters.
Most of the top comments on the video’s YouTube page are complaints that the clip is irresponsible, insensitive, and anti-Semitic. Twitter users also expressed their outrage over the video.
Sure, Nicki wasn't trying for Nazi imagery. Mm-hmm. pic.twitter.com/k1K6zNkYWJ
