Just as she did last night (June 4) on Hot 97, Nicki Minaj promised a free concert in New York. This morning (June 5) on Hot 97’s New York City competitor, Power 105, Nicki says she plans on making up her no-show at Summer Jam with a free concert in NYC.
“It’s still in the works, but it’s definitely gonna happen,” Minaj said about the free concert. “We gonna make it work.”
“This was actually Wayne’s suggestion,” the Young Money princess added. “Wayne was like, ‘Yo Nick, we can do our own show for the people. You don’t have to feel bad.’ Obviously, I felt bad. I don’t want to let my fans down, period. We’re going to have fun.”
She first talked about plans for the free concert with Funkmaster Flex on Hot 97 on Monday night.
Meanwhile Hot 97 personality, Peter Rosenberg, who called Minaj’s “Starships” single “bullshit” hours before her schedule Summer Jam performance is sticking to his opinion about the record and choice comments.
“Hey, I went out there, I was hosting, I was in the zone of doing real hip-hop,” Rosenberg said on the air this morning. “I just said what came to mind and everyone made a big deal about it…Now the Barbz are all hitting me and asking me to apologize. There’s a get-me-to-apoligize movement, to which I can say…I’m absolutely not apologizing because I didn’t do anything wrong.”
As of press time, there aren’t any concrete details about Nicki’s proposed free NYC concert.—Jakinder Singh
