The "No Frauds" rapper ruffled a few feathers on Sunday when she posted a screenshot of the iTunes Hip/Hop Rap Songs chart on Instagram, XXL reports, and commented on the fact that over half of the top ten songs were by white artists.
"It's a great time to be a white rapper in America huh?" she wrote in the caption.
She later edited the post to show love for Eminem and Post Malone, writing, "S/O to Em & Post. Two of my faves. Congrats to Em on his new album."
Nicki's commentary must have been met with a bet of backlash, because the rapper added another update calling out the "ig thugs" crying in her comments section.
"Blocking all u sensitive d*ck riders," she wrote. "It IS a great time to be a white rapper in America. I wanna sign one for my new label. U know anyone? I spk my mthafkn mind n if u don't like it gtfo my page d*ck rida! Y'all can never wait to ride the Queen dick! Sensitive a*s ig thugs. Gtfoh."
In another post, Nicki shared a video of rapper J. Cole speaking out about cultural appropriation in jazz and hip hop, pointing out how both genres started out as a means for black folks to rebel but have since been co-opted by white artists.
"Be mad at this too," she wrote in the clip's caption, adding later, "Whenever a black woman speaks on ANYTHING she's labeled as 'mad,' 'angry,' 'bitter.' I'm on 4 songs on the Billboard Hot 100. I'm blessed & highly favored thx to my amazing fans. But I'll spk on whatever the f*ck I want to whenever the f*ck I want to."
"I love being a smart successful woman," she continued. "It's never been cool or funny to be illiterate or uninterested in your own industry & how it works."
Nicki continued standing by her point in the comments section, too. Check out a few screenshots, captured by The Shade Room, below.
Nicki has since deleted all of the posts in question. Still, do you agree with her take on the state of rap/hip hop? Wale does.
