YMCM Starship Flees Hot 97 SummerJam [VIDEO]

Nicki Minaj was all set to headline 2012’s Hot 97 SummerJam Concert, but just a few hours before the stars were scheduled to hit the stage, Hot 97’s own DJ Rosenberg decided to diss Nicki Minaj’s “Starships,” calling it “bullsh*t!”

Rosenberg was on a small stage inside the parking lot of MetLife Stadium where he released the statement:

“I see the real hip-hop heads sprinkled in here, I see them. I know there are some chicks here waiting to sing “Starships” later — I’m not talking to y’all right now….I’m here to talk about real hip-hop.”

Shortly after Rosenberg’s remarks, Lil Wayne, the CEO of Nicki’s label, took to Twitter, saying, “Young Money ain’t doing summer jam.” This tweet left fans confused as to whether or not Nicki would come out, but once the boss had spoken, Ms. Minaj was pulled from the concert and did not hit the stage.

Nicki herself tweeted “Wow. U n*ggaz just f*cked up history. But the President has spoken. #YMCMB.” Nicki also released comments expressing she should be treated with respect and about how she goes above and beyond for fans but won’t ever go against Wayne’s word. What he says goes. #LikeABoss

Many feel that Nicki should have put the fans first and performed, but at the same time, dissing the headliner of your own SummerJam show is not the smartest decision to make, Mr. Rosenberg. I am in no way saying “Starships” is true hip-hop, but if that was such a big issue, why would you book her on the show anyways?

What do you think: Is Nicki Minaj in the wrong or a victim in this situation?
