Nicki Minaj never shies away from tackling big issues and is unapologetically vocal when it comes to calling out inequality, whether it has to do with gender or race.
Kanye West is the latest to feel Nicki’s wrath. And it’s all to do with lyrics from his 2005 hit, 'Gold Digger'.
Nicki told Marie Claire it was ironic he rapped about black men being more likely to marry white women after they become successful because he’s now married to Kim Kardashian.
*“I'm so tired of black women feeling that when our men get rich, they're going to leave them for a woman of a different race,” she said.
“It wasn't funny when Kanye said [in 'Gold Digger'], ‘And when you get on, he'll leave your as for a white girl' - and Kanye happens to be with a white girl now. It wasn't funny when he said it; it was the [beep] truth.”*
Wonder if we’ll get a response from Kanye? We guess even Kanye would be unlikely to take on Nicki Minaj, particularly when it’s such a contentious subject.
