Nas feels like it’s time for Nicki Minaj to lay aside her brewing beef with Hot 97.
Nicki pulled out of performing at the Hot 97 Summer Jam concert at the last minute over the weekend because of negative comments made about her music by DJ Peter Rosenberg.
While the people over at Hot 97 could care less about the female rapper dropping out, fellow Queens MC Nas was scheduled to perform alongside Nicki and do their song “Champion.”
Nas was once in Nicki’s shoes in his own Summer Jam beef with Jay-Z years ago, and he expressed his views to Rap-Up.com about her no-show, stating, “I think it was just really messy."
“When you’re in the heat of that moment, no one has time to inform anybody, but [Nicki and I] spoke after briefly and it seemed like it was a crazy situation for her to handle,” he said.
He went on to say that artists and radio station personalities alike need to come together as "one hip-hop family" and unify. “I’ve been there before, so at the end of the day, it could be fixed.”
