“While you were preparing for the Game of Thrones finale, a sneak peek at The Dark Knight Rises at the MTV Movie Awards or the another showdown between the Celtics and Heat, New York radio station’s Hot 97 was hosting live Twitter feuds and scrambling through lineup changes at its annual Summer Jam concert. Nicki Minaj was all set to headline, promoted as such in the weeks leading up to the event, before DJ Peter Rosenberg ragged on “Starships” to a crowd of 50,000 at Met Life Stadium. In the process of praising new talents like A$AP Rocky and Schoolboy Q, Rosenberg called the Roman Reloaded single “whack,” and totally not “real hip-hop shit.” This is not entirely untrue, but probably not the smartest or most polite thing to do when you’ve invited Nicki to your event, and sold plenty of tickets on the hope that she’d undergo another live exorcism on stage. Lil Wayne asserted his power and potentially soured his relationship with the influential radio station by pulling the plug on Minaj’s performance a few hours before her scheduled set time.” [via popdust]

After the jump listen to Nicki Minaj as she calls in to Hot 97 and voice her opinion on why she didn’t show up at Summer Jam to Funkmaster Flex.
