Nicki Minaj Sparked a Huge Internet Debate With Her "White Rappers" Post

Nicki Minaj Sparked a Huge Internet Debate With Her

Commenting on Nicki's post via The Shade Room, Wale reminded everyone that white rappers are afforded a certain reputation down to the verbiage used to identify those artist.

"It IS a great time to be a white rapper in America", she wrote. U know anyone? I spk my mthafkn mind n if u don't like it gtfo my page dick rida! Y'all can never wait to ride the Queen d*ck!

Either way, Nicki ended up deleting the initial post and followed up with (another now-deleted) Instagram that has led some to believe she removed the first in response to some sexist, double standard-filled backlash.

Nicki soon fired back posting a 2014 J.Cole interview with Angie Martinez in which the Dreamville CEO spoke about how jazz, which was once a predominately black musical art form, has now been commercialized by white musicians. Sensitive a*s ig thugs. The list in question included the likes of Eminem and Post Malone, pointing to an obvious lack of color. White people want white people who do black things- greeneyedrish (@rish2028) December 17, 2017@NICKIMINAJ was right. There's plenty of historical context and data to disprove the theory of white artists gaining increased popularity in predominately black spaces isn't a new development, but that's somewhat of a moot point now because Nicki's posts have been deleted.

Post also recently found himself in hot water with hip-hop fans for his controversial comments about the genre. "It was that much of a rebellious music".

"Whenever a black woman speaks on ANYTHING she's labelled "mad", "angry" and "bitter", she wrote adding, "I'm blessed and highly favoured, thanks to my fantastic fans".

She then added, "I'm blessed and highly favoured, thanks to my incredible fans". But I'll speak on whatever the f**k I want to, whenever the f**k I want to. I love being a smart, successful woman.

She has reportedly deleted all of her IG posts criticizing the whitewashing of hip-hop. "It's never been cool or amusing to be illiterate or uninterested in your own industry & how it works".
