Nicki Minaj Takes to Twitter to Address Gender Inequality in Hip Hop Kiara Dunston October 26, 2017 Digital Entertainment, Her Source, Her Source | Beauty and Fashion Trends, Her Source | Hip Hop Beauty Trends, Her Source | Women's Hip Hop Fashion, Hip Hop Music | Listen To and Download Hip Hop Tracks Many would deem Nicki Minaj Hip-Hop’s dopest female MC, while others unfortunately attribute her success and accolades to things other than pure talent and hard work. On Wednesday night (October 25), the Queens bred artist took to Twitter to vent about sexism in the industry and shared her feelings on the respect she thinks she’s lacking. In any field, women must work TWICE as hard to even get HALF the respect her male counterparts get. When does this stop? — NICKI MINAJ (@NICKIMINAJ) October 25, 2017 The chart topping, record breaking artist went on to reference some of Hip Hop’s greatest male MCs and the respect those who’ve collaborated with them have earned, in comparison to the talks surrounding her own collaboration with “the greats”. The greats collaborated w/Drake, Kendrick & Jcole b/c they’re dope MC’s. They collab’d w/nicki cuz someone pulled a gun to their heads… ?? — NICKI MINAJ (@NICKIMINAJ) October 25, 2017 Putting ppl in the same sentence as me after my 10 years of consistent winning. What are you teaching THEM? They’d never do this to a man. — NICKI MINAJ (@NICKIMINAJ) October 25, 2017 She even retweeted a 7 year old tweet of Kendrick Lamar‘s to support her case. Kendrick’s tweet from 7 years ago. This is so telling. And scary. I’d have to wear some baggy pants n timbs for men to openly give props. https://t.co/r6fEjSJZPl — NICKI MINAJ (@NICKIMINAJ) October 25, 2017 Though most wouldn’t believe that someone who has obtained so much success and receives world-wide recognition would feel she doesn’t get the respect she deserves, it’s refreshing to see her take a page from Kanye West‘s book by speaking up and demanding more.
