In an interview with MTV News, Lil Wayne spoke about the on-going feud between Nicki Minaj and the Hot 97 Summer Jam. In the conversation, Weezy expressed his indignation about DJ Peter Rosenberg dissing his artist in front of the audience that she was about to address.
Wayne felt that a “woman should be respected,” stating further that:
“That’s a female; first and foremost Nicki Minaj is a female. I don’t know what anyone else believes, but I believe females deserve the ultimate respect at all times no matter, when or where or how,” Lil Wayne said to MTV.
“I know there are some chicks in here waiting to sing along with ‘Starships’ later…I’m not talking to y’all now. F–k that bulls—t,” said Rosenberg.
Two days later, Minaj called into Hot 97 Funkmaster Flex’s program and said that the comments by Rosenberg show a lack of respect for women.
“As soon as she called me and told me she felt disrespected, I just declined everything,” Lil Wayne said. “I pulled her from the show because…no person that works with me will be disrespected in my presence as long as I’m on this planet.”
“I expect the red carpet, in her manner; the pink carpet should be laid out for her,” he remarked. “It’s just an executive move—no salt, no bad feelings, no hard feelings.”
