Nicki Minaj Vents On Instagram

The rapper shared a snapshot of the most recent top 10 Hip-Hop/Rap songs on iTunes in the United States. She pointed out that a majority of the rappers on the list are Caucasian.

“It’s a great time to be a white rapper in America huh?” the "Anaconda" rapper added the caption.

Top 10 on the list is Eminem's River (feat. Ed Sheeran), Post Malone’s rockstar (feat. 21 Savage), NF’s Let You Down, G-Eazy and Halsey’s Him & I, Lil Pump’s Gucci Gang, Migos, Nicki Minaj and Cardi B’s MotorSport, Good Old Days by Macklemore (feat. Kesha), N.E.R.D. and Rihanna’s Lemon, Post Malone’s I Fall Apart, and The Break Up by Machine Gun Kelly.

Minaj then changed the caption to point out that the songs were the top 10 rap songs at the time when it came to U.S. hits on iTunes. She updated the caption once more and gave a special shout out to Eminem and Post Malone as she marked them, “two of my faves.” She also saluted Eminem for his latest studio album release and recognized the success of Motorsport as it landed at number 6 on the list.

Check out what fans had to say about it on Twitter.

Fans Clap Back

After receiving lots of backlash from fans, she updated the caption once again. She wrote that she was “blocking” all of the “sensitive” fans and reiterated her original point.

“It IS a great time to be a white rapper in America. I wanna sign one for my new label. U know anyone?” Minaj tweeted.

She added that critics who had anything negative to say can see themselves off of her page. However, she didn’t stop there.

She added a video of rapper J. Cole sharing similar thoughts during a recent radio interview. She added that she was only speaking on the trend of music right now and said that anyone in a different industry would most likely do the same. She said that because she is a woman of color, she was “labeled as mad, angry, bitter.”

She went on to point out that she is featured on four songs that have made it on Billboard’s coveted Hot 100 list. She said while she’s fortunate enough to have a strong following, she will always say what she wants on her own page.
