Backstage at Hot 107.9′s Birthday Bash this past weekend in Atlanta, Weezy gives MTV an explanation for pulling Nicki Minaj from New York’s Hot 97 Summer Jam a few weeks ago. A lil’ R-E-S-P-E-C-T goes a long way.
“As soon as she called me and told me she felt disrespected, I just declined everything,” Weezy told us. “I pulled her from the show because … no person that works with me will be disrespected in my presence as long as I’m on this planet.”
Nicki has another stat to brag about. Two months after its release, her sophomore effort Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded has churned a gold plaque with 508,000 copies sold. Take that Flex. Ha!
After calling Funkmaster Flex last night, Nicki gave Power 105.1′s morning show a buzz. She discussed the events at Summer Jam and moving forward. Earlier in the show, Charlamagne Tha God called Funkmaster Flex a bitch in his Donkey Of The Day segment.
Sidebar: Hot 97′s program director Ebro speaks:
Waka’s new album, Triple F Life is one week away from its release and he decides to release his next single with Nicki, Tyga & Flo Rida. Waka might have a hit with this one. Purchase the new single on iTunes.
The calm after the storm? Not really. After pulling out of Summer Jam, Nicki phoned into Flex this evening to recap yesterday’s events.

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.
