I recently reviewed Nicki Minaj’s video for ‘Lookin A** Ni**a’ and she’s released a statement regarding the unofficial artwork that was released.
What seems to be the issue now? Do you have a problem with me referring to the people Malcolm X was ready to pull his gun out on as Lookin Ass Niggaz? Well, I apologize. That was never the official artwork nor is this an official single. This is a conversation. Not a single. I am in the video shooting at Lookin Ass Niggaz and there happened to be an iconic photo of Malcolm X ready to do the same thing for what he believed in!!!! It is in no way to undermine his efforts and legacy. I apologize to the Malcolm X estate if the meaning of the photo was misconstrued. The word ‘nigga’ causes so much debate in our community while the ‘nigga’ behavior gets praised and worship. Let’s not. Apologies again to his family. I have nothing but respect an adoration for u. The photo was removed hours ago. Thank you.
Well according to Nicki this wasn’t a single and it’s probably true that it wasn’t. Her creativity was leader her another way, but her actions were taken personally and offensively.She could’ve just let this be swept under the rug, but I commend her for releasing the statement out of respect. Check out my official video review here.
