Nicki Minaj Wants Newer Women in the Industry To "Stop Talking About Hate"

“People have been gentle with y’all.”

Nicki Minaj is calling for up-and-coming talent in the music industry to “stop talking about hate.”

During a recent Instagram Live with Coi Leray, the “Anaconda” rapper responded to Leray’s comments about receiving and overcoming hate in the industry. Minaj said: “Can you girls stop talking about hate? Y’all have never experienced hate the way I have experienced [it]. Y’all have just experienced some of the growing pains of artistry and of social media. [...] Trust me, ya ain’t experienced it yet. A lot of y’all have gotten, not coddled, people have been nice. People have been gentle with y’all.”

The two artists subsequently took the discussion to Twitter, where Leray was quick to tell her fans that they were getting “too emotional” over Minaj’s comments. The musician mentioned that the rapper’s comments didn’t offend her, and that one should always listen to someone who has more experience. She wrote: “[Minaj has] been through a lot! She still standing strong, still dropping hits; she basically told me don’t let y’all wack a-s comments and negative energy stop me now because MORE MONEY AND SUCCESS more problems so THUG THAT SH-T OUT!”

The PinkPrint rapper replied to Leray’s tweet, stating that her reasoning was why she left the livestream up on her Instagram page: “I spent time just focused on HOW you’re such a talented, versatile, unique artist in my eyes. I talked [about] how your verse kept switching up and getting better and how dope those last 4 bars are to me… how I know for a fact you actually WRITE. BUT NO!!!”

The 24-year-old proceeded to thank Minaj for teaching her a valuable lesson: “A strong Black woman is all I heard. Thank you for dropping gems on me sister — you a real one! Our Live was dope af and when I got off, I thanked God again for this blessing. That man makes no mistakes, and that’s on omm!”
