Nick Minaj crosses out the names like Cardi B, Megan Thee Stallion, and others from OP-ED

We all know Nicki Minaj is without a doubt one of the best female hip-hop artists in the industry even to this day, but after a strange tweet in which she scribbled out the names of other major female artists mentioned in an article praising her, fans are now looking at Nicki wondering if she might also be one of the most selfish.

The tweet stemmed from a long well article feature op-ed written by writer Joshua Robinson at HotNewHipHop in which he described Minaj’s rise to success as well as detailed what about her sound sets her apart from others and how she is a step above most other female artists. However, Robinson also complimented other current female hip-hop artists, writing: “Nicki Minaj’s presence — be it aural, digital, or visual — is absolutely enthralling, and when she’s on hiatus, you can tell. Despite the welcomed contributions of women like Cardi B, Megan Thee Stallion, City Girls, and Doja Cat over the past few years, female rap still feels incomplete without Nicki Minaj’s presence and output, and that alone illustrates how important she is to Hip-Hop, as a genre, and as a culture.”

Minaj appeared pleased with the piece, but not with sharing her spotlight. She shared a screenshot of the article with the other artists’ names scribbled out.

While we know her issues with Cardi B have been public for many years, we didn’t think she had issues with the other rappers. Naturally, social media said a lot about the commentary with some stating that Minaj was right in keeping the spotlight on herself while others felt like she could have simply cut the screenshot off above the names of the other female artists.

No one as of yet made any public comment.
