Nicki Minaj: Blasts Universal Record Label for Taking Down Freestyle
The internet has been buzzing about the Rap Queen’s recent freestyle to PTAF‘s “Boss A** B****”.
The track was actually the first song the rapper released the entire year, outside of guest appearances.
The rapper posted the freestyle to her website, with the option to stream the song from souncloud or download it for free at hulkshare. And just when the song earned one-million streams on soundcloud, her label ‘Universal Music Group” yanked it down.
Minaj gained stardom through her mixtapes, which are essentially the same as a freestyle. Minaj jumped on beats already released by other artist and added her own style to it.
The Queens bred rapper gained the most attention via her “Beam Me Up Scotty” mixtape, which notably included freestyles of DJ Khaled‘s “Go Hard” and Soulja Boy‘s “Donk” (which Minaj later titled “Itty Bitty Piggy“.)
The videos for both songs gained over 5+Million views, despite the rapper not being known among the masses.
The unexpected move from her label prompted these responses from her and the Barbz:
