Lil Wayne sparked a firestorm after he made the decision to pull his protégée Nicki Minaj from Hot 97 Summer Jam. Now the Young Money chief is speaking out on his controversial move.
“That’s a female; first and foremost Nicki Minaj is a female,” the “Lollipop” rapper told MTV News backstage at Birthday Bash 17 in Atlanta. “I don’t know what anyone else believes, but I believe females deserve the ultimate respect at all times, no matter when or where or how.”
