Hot 97.5 will not back down from their insults of Nicki Minaj and her “Starships” song at Sunday’s Summer Jam Concert Festival. Hot 97.5 program director Ebro Darden defended the actions of his staff. Hot 97.5 pretty much feels that they are bigger than Nicki Minaj who is now a world renowned pop star…
The program director stated:
“Nicki was not the headliner — Hot 97 was.“
Last night in an attempt to squash the beef Nicki Minaj called into Funkmaster Flex’s radio show and the two went back and forth with pretty much nothing being accomplished, although Nicki seemingly came out on the winning end. But Flex pretty much stood by his comments although he apologized to Nicki several times stating that both he and Rosenberg liked her music aside from her pop hits.
Hot 97.5′s competiter Power 105.1 backed up Nicki Minaj and thought that 97.5′s actions at the concert were pretty stupid considering the station hired Nicki to help sell tickets to the concert and ended up dissing her hours before she was to perform.
“Common sense would say ‘ok this is our star for the evening, we actually hired her because she can sell the tickets, so let me not get on stage and diss her.’”
Yee’s co-host, DJ Envy, added:
“Lil Wayne made the perfect decision; I would’ve pulled her a long time ago. They belittle women, and lets be serious they’re the number 8th morning show in the market. The Donkey of The Day this morning goes to Hot 97 as a crew, as a staff, and as a motherf*cking label.”
