Nicki Minaj recently sat down with XXL to discuss her role in hip-hop and made a comment that led to a ton of headlines. Now, The Pinkprint rapper wants blogs and TV shows to get their facts straight when quoting her.

On Tuesday (Oct. 17), Nicki reposted the video of her XXL interview on Instagram and included a lengthy caption. “I see ppl remixing my words so let me post ‘exactly’ what I said for the intelligent ones in the back,” she wrote. “Now, if you can find the part where I said ‘I made female rappers mainstream’, I’ll give you $100,000.00. 😅 blogs & tv shows don’t care to do actual research these days, they only care about what grabs your attention… at anyone’s expense.”

During our original interview, Nicki said she broke into the hip-hop scene when there “wasn’t a big female rap presence,” so her role was “reintroducing the female rapper to pop culture.” Nicki went on to say she aligned herself with “a lot of brands,” which proved that female rappers could sell products.

Elsewhere in her IG post, Minaj continued to clarify her statement, writing, “When I came out, there had been a drought of a few years where NO female rap album had gone platinum, females weren’t getting budgets, the industry did NOT believe in the female rapper anymore. They had stopped generating MONEY for labels.”

She added, “So I ‘REINTRODUCED’ the ‘successful’ female rapper back to POP CULTURE. Showed big business we were major players in the game just like the boys were.”

Up next for Nicki, the New York rapper is working on her new album. During a recent interview with The New York Times’ T Magazine, the “No Frauds” artist discussed the upcoming project, saying the album “feels almost like a celebration.”

Check out Nicki’s full Instagram post below.

I see ppl remixing my words so let me post "exactly" what I said for the intelligent ones in the back. Now, if you can find the part where I said "I made female rappers mainstream", I'll give you $100,000.00. blogs & tv shows don't care to do actual research these days, they only care about what grabs your attention… at anyone's expense. Imagine me saying I made female rappers mainstream when there were so many women who already had platinum albums under their belts. Lauryn sold 10 million off one album, Eve had platinum singles w/Alicia, Gwen Stefani, her own tv show & clothing line. It doesn't get more mainstream/pop than Missy's biggest singles. Foxy&Kim had platinum albums & shaped the sound of NY female rappers, Latifah had her own sitcom, Trina was on billboard with hits, etc- I appreciate the love but I never said that. now what I DID say is right here for anyone w/their own brain to decipher words on their own. I know it's hard in the social media band wagon era, but try. It's fun. . When I came out, there had been a drought of a few years where NO female rap album had gone platinum, females weren't getting budgets, the industry did NOT believe in the female rapper anymore. They had stopped generating MONEY for labels. Ask any rap historian or just anyone with a brain. These are facts and nothing but the facts. So I "REINTRODUCED" the "successful" female rapper back to POP CULTURE. Showed big business we were major players in the game just like the boys were. ♥️ love you guys for holding me down but what's true is true & whats not is just simply not. update your blogs & tv shows with what I actually said please . I can't believe this lil interview made it to tv. Haha. See u guys on tour next year. I got a cpl BIG surprises. AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!
