Every now and then we can find our favorite celebrities being very vocal on social media about the way they feel about certain things, especially when it comes to industry business. Nicki Minaj is no different. After being in the game for a decade now, Nicki still feels that she is not getting the recognition she deserves because she is a female artist in a male dominant industry.
She tweeted, “In any field, women must work TWICE as hard to even get HALF the respect her male counterparts get. When does this stop?” Nicki then questioned why it seems that so many musicians are quick to work with males in the field, but not women, “The greats collaborated w/Drake, Kendrick & Jcole b/c they’re dope MC’s. They only collab w/Nicki cuz someone pulled a gun to their heads…” She then continued, “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.”
She also referenced a tweet from Kendrick Lamar dating back to 7 years ago discussing why men seemed to hate Nicki Minaj more than women do. You know what, Nicki I agree, as I am sure everyone women would be in agreeance. When will the sexism stop?
