“Young Money” rapstress Nicki Minaj has allegedly asked Hot 97 to stop playing her music, according to the station program director Ebro Darden.
According to Popcrush, “Darden and Rosenberg discussing the poor sales of her re-released album ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded — The Re-Up.’ In the clip, Ebro suggested that Rosenberg ended Minaj’s career after he criticized her six months ago at Summer Jam 2012 for making pop songs.”
“Now that’s all you,” Darden said to Rosenberg. “You put work on her son, you gotta own this one. You may have ended Nicki Minaj’s career.”
The ‘Freedom’ rapper called the station and demanded she be removed from the radio station’s playlists immediately.
“She used every woman stab she could: ‘I thought you were a man, you’re a cornball, I thought we were friends, you’re fake,’” recalls Darden of their heated phone conversation.
He then added:
“Don’t worry Barbz, your queen hasn’t left radio. Darden assured everyone that they will continued to play Nicki’s songs despite her vitriol of the station. “Of course we are. I love Nicki Minaj.”
