Lil Wayne Stands By Nicki Minaj’s Decision To Back Out Of BET Concert
Earlier today, Nicki Minaj revealed that she was no longer performing at the BET Experience concert in June after the BET network decided to blast her during the Grammy’s last night. If you missed it, BET sent out a tweet about Cardi’s historic grammy win for Best Rap album, while pointing out that Nicki “is being dragged for her lacefront” in the process. Of course the distasteful tweet didn’t sit well with Nicki, and she quickly decided to cancel her show with them. “Young Money will no longer be apart of the BET Experience or award show,” she revealed today.
While Nicki was hearing it from fans for her decision, she received some reassurance this afternoon when her boss, Lil Wayne, said he’s standing by her. Nicki shared a screenshot on IG of a text Lil Wayne sent her, saying “I’m with u!” after she told him about canceling the BET show.
It’s unclear if Lil Wayne’s “I’m with u” is him saying he’s canceling his performance as well or just okay with her decision to do so, but we’ll probably get a proper statement from Young Money about it in the coming days or weeks.
“Loyalty love him. Forever. The GOAT. My brother. My boss. My inspiration. #YoungMoney” Nicki left as her caption clearly grateful for her boss’ stance in the decision. Check out the text (below).
