(AllHipHop Rumors) Nicki Minaj made it clear that she's tired of sexism and gender inequality in Hip Hop.
The head Barb is tired of not receiving the same treatment as her male counterparts.
Apparently Nicki feels that collaborations between male Hip Hop artists come naturally, but when it comes to male artists collaborating with female Hip Hop artists, they either had to be pushed to do it, or there is a perception that they were pushed to do it. Nicki feels that it should be as easy and organic for her as it is for her male counterparts.
She also wants to know why don't people just collaborate with her off the strength of her being a dope emcee alone.
"In any field, women must work TWICE as hard to even get HALF the respect her male counterparts get. When does this stop? Putting ppl in the same sentence as me after my 10 years of consistent winning. What are you teaching THEM? They’d never do this to a man. The greats collaborated w/Drake, Kendrick & Jcole b/c they’re dope MC’s. They collab’d w/nicki cuz someone pulled a gun to their heads...
Nicki also said that certain people's names shouldn't be in the same sentence as hers because they haven't done the work or the 10 years of winning that she's put in. This lead folks to believe that this was a shot at Cardi B since it's been "Cardi this and Cardi that" lately.
What do you think of Nicki's statements? Do you agree? Does she have a point?
