Nicki pulled out as Hot 97’s Summer Jam act, following Peter Rosenberg’s “Starships” comment on the festival stage. Soon after, Lil Wayne gave Nicki the word to chuck the deuce. Nicki tweeted below:
Wow. U niggaz just fucked up history. But the President has spoken.
#YMCMB. I go above and beyond for my fans. But won’t ever go against wayne’s word. What he says, goes.
Later on, Flex hit the 1s and 2s during her time slot and reacted to Nicki’s decision.
Nas, who was one of Minaj’s surprise guests stepped up to the plate and performed a longer set and brought out Lauryn Hill. Nicki also tweeted who she was going to bring out. Oh well.
