Things got ugly for a minute over at Hot 97’s Summer Jam Sunday, fortunately Nas and Lauryn Hill were in the building to save the day.
Nicki Minaj was billed as headliner for the show. She tweeted her excitement over Hot 97’s Summer Jam early in the day:
Alas, it wasn’t meant to be. Hot 97 Morning show co-host Peter Rosenberg was hosting the event, and once he went on the mic and said this:
“I see the real hip-hop heads sprinkled in here. I see them. I know there are some chicks here waiting to sing ‘Starships’ later—I’m not talking to y’all right now. Fawk that bullisht. Bullisht. I’m here to talk about real hip-hop isht.”
Weezy put his foot down and declared that Young Money would not be performing at Summer Jam.
However, not everyone got the memo as Tyga was seen on stage after it all went down. This raised a few eyebrows, but he had a good explanation:
“We would have been in full support of Nicki/Wayne and YMCMB if we got the word prior.” According to Tyga, they hit the stage before hearing about the cease and desist.
On to the rest of the drama: What follows is an orgy of tweets from Nicki, Rosenberg himself and all of Nicki’s Barbies. Pack a lunch, this is a wild ride. Safaree even gets in on the mix and threatens some beat downs!
But first, pics of Nas and Lauryn Hill showing up to sub in and saving the day!
