Nicki Minaj discussed her reasons why she pulled herself from the lineup of the Hot 97’s Summer Jam concert, which was Sunday, with DJ Funkmaster Flex during an interview on Monday night. The interview got pretty heated between the two. Minaj was insulted by the radio station’s morning show co-host Peter Rosenberg when he ripped apart her song ‘Starships.’ The radio station is from New York. The announcement about Minaj removing herself from the concert was made via Twitter by Lil Wayne. Minaj spoke with Flex about his comments on her album sales.

“And I want you to pull up your roster from everyone who was performing on your show,” she told Flex. “My first album sold 375,000 copies in its first week. My first album has gone on to sell 3.5 million records. My second album is at 900,000 worldwide, plus a three million selling single. If you don’t know, call Matt Voss at Universal, Flex, do the math, m-a-t-h, that’s one-point-two-million on my second album. Even without the single, I’ve sold. Three. Point. Five. Million. Albums.”


“In Two Years. I want you before you ever open your mouth — it’s so misleading, when I saw Foxy Brown, she said, Nic, why are they saying things about your sales when you’ve gone number one in four countries? You know who the last one to do that was, Flex? The person previous to me was Eminem in 2010.”

It has since been rumored that Minaj will play a free concert for Hot 97 to make up for removing herself from the Summer Jam lineup.
