Nicki Minaj only recently patched things up with Hot 97 Radio after that infamous Summer Jam incident. But now the Young Money rapper and the urban radio station are back in hot water.
During a recent interview with Rosenberg and Cipha Sounds, Hot 97’s program director Ebro says Nicki Minaj asked him to stop playing her music on the station.
Ebro made references to Nicki Minaj recent rap heavy album The Re-Up that only sold 36,000 copies in its first week sales. The veteran radio personality says Minaj called him directly from overseas and hurl insults at him before demanding him to stop playing her music on air.
“I said, ‘Rosenberg ruined Nicki Minaj’s career’ – evidence suggests based on this Re-Up release, the things [Rosenberg] said about her being pop and selling out and making that pop music came back to haunt her,” Ebro said.
“Now, she puts six rap records on this album and it didn’t sell. I get the phone call, the international number pops up, I answer the call, it’s my friend Nicki Minaj, who then starts to proclaim how I’m fake,” Ebro added.
Ebro says Hot 97 still love Nicki Minaj and will continue to play her music.
