Sidenote: Forbes CAN’T be serious…SMH
Nicki Minaj Responds To Forbes Saying Iggy Azalea Runs Hip Hop
YMCMB first lady Nicki Minaj is gearing up for the release of her latest album “The Pink Print” and she’s been hitting the promo trail heavy for the last few weeks.
In addition to dropping the albums’ first single “Pills N Potions” earlier this week, Nicki also addressed Forbes Magazine recently saying Iggy Azalea “runs hip hop,” being obsessed with Jay Z, leading the way for female rappers and more while out on her press tour visiting everyone from The Breakfast Club, to Power 106, to Ryan Seacrest on KIIS FM.
Check out some of what she’s had to say so far below.

On females in hip hop:
I feel like I have opened the door for that in the industry. I think that there are women who do their thing and for whatever reason, they don’t get the recognition…It takes a lot of work.
It doesn’t just happen overnight. It’s not a female-friendly business. Hip-hop is not female-friendly at all.
On her new album “The Pink Print” and whether it will be “hardcore hip hop:”
I’m very proud of it. This is a meaningful body of work, and I’m tired of labeling it. I’m not gonna ever label my music again.
Nicki also responded to Forbes labeling fellow white rapstress Iggy Azalea as the top female in hip hop and went into to detail about her obsession with Jay Z. See what else she had to say on the flip.
