Ja Rule Gives Nicki Minaj Her Flowers

Tiffany Brockworth |

Rapper Ja Rule spoke about Nicki Minaj’s influence on hip-hop but his views are getting backlash from rap fans.

“I think Nicki gets proper praise. Her place in the game is solidified. It’s solid. There were no female MCs out and about until Nicki came back out. Before her, the last one was like Lauryn Hill,” he began.

“And before her was like Queen Latifah, Salt-N-Pepa, MC Lyte and before her it’s even further back,” he continued. “The female MC…they’re having a run like they’ve never had before. To me, in my opinion, Nicki reopened that door.”

Nicki is one of the top female rappers, but some were upset at all of the other rappers he left out.

“Can’t forget missy but I mean what can I say his favs is his favs f-ck it,” one commenter wrote.

“Eve deserves her roses if anything because in her prime Eve done so much from music to her own Tv show etc,” another wrote.

Another chimed in, “So we just gonna skip over what Lil’ Kim & Foxy did for the culture. These ladies changed the game and it hasn’t been the same since. In terms of impact, Lil’ Kim & Foxy is it. The rest have been duplications. 🤷🏽‍♀️”

Is Ja Rule right?
