Whether she's speaking out about fashion designers appropriating black style, sexism in the hip hop industry, or, most recently, white rappers, Nicki Minaj is not afraid to speak her mind.

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.
