Nicki Minaj and Funkmaster Flex Air Out Summer Jam Controversy on Hot 97

Yesterday, rapper Nicki Minaj called into New York’s Hot 97 on air and went one on one with station DJ Funkmaster Flex, who said the Young Money songstress can’t sell records following her decision not to perform at Sunday’s Summer Jam 2012.

As previously reported, Minaj and her Young Money crew pulled out of the concert after radio personality Peter Rosenburg dissed her single “Starships,” calling it “wack.” In addition he said she wasn’t “real hip hop.”

Minaj was stern with Flex during the interview, at times making him eat his own words. Flex admitted that Rosenberg could’ve picked a better time for his opinions, while Minaj was adamant about her decision to pull insisting, “I don’t go against the president of my label.”

According to Minaj, There will be a free concert for fans this summer to make up for the withdrawal.
