Nicki Minaj is not happy with the Recording Academy.
After getting news that her latest hit “Super Freaky Girl” has been been moved from the rap to the pop category, the rapper took to social media to share her thoughts.
“I have no prob being moved out the RAP category as long as we r ALL being treated FAIRLY,” Nicki tweeted, before making a comparison to Latto‘s song “Big Energy.”
“If SFG has 2B moved out RAP then so does Big Energy! ANY1 who says diff is simply a Nicki hater or a troll,” she continued. “I’d actually LUV 2 c a more street record win- male OR female! [I’m just saying] rightIsRight.”
The Grammy-nominated artist then took to Instagram and posted a 17-minute video to further express her frustration.
“If you can’t tell by now that there is a concerted effort to give newer artists things that they really don’t deserve over people who have been deserving for many years, then you’re not paying attention,” she said.
“And by the way, this is not to say any song is bad or any female rapper is bad. I always say this: Any rapper, female or male, that wins a Grammy, you should be f****** proud of yourself. But why is the goalpost only ever moved when it’s Nicki?” she asked rhetorically. “Well, I’ll tell you why. They don’t want the people that they have in the industry to go up against me.”
She continued, “They move the goalposts when it comes to me because in order for them to uplift the people who they want to shine, the people who these corporate giants can make the money off of, the people who control a lot of things behind the scenes, they have to elevate someone that they profit off.”
