Nicki Minaj Outrage!
This man is a brilliant and creative artist (BUT) he nor anyone else is beyond criticism especially if that criticism helps to instruct or suggest a better way or better path from the perspective of the criticizer. Obviously he's his own man and does not speak for the interest of his race nor does he respect the opinions of anyone that values the black race from an empowerment perspective. He dismissed Sway's suggestion to build his own industry from the bottom up. He rejected Sway's suggestion saying he would loose to much money if he were to do it that way. Sure, you would loose money at first but the point is to make up that loss and continue to make money over the long run. Just as he informed us how his Slave owner that cuts his checks did and does. But of coarse he would say this is my money; make your own and do what the f**k you want to do with yours.
As far as him wearing that confederate flag on his jacket, this indicates to me that he would through his race under the bus just to achieve the shock value that he needs to promote his own brand. I absolutely expect nothing from this guy and reflecting back on his comments during the aftermath of hurricane Katrina, tells me that was only a stunt to capitalize on a disaster in order to bring attention to himself and to promote his market brand.
