Nicki Minaj has been a record-breaking artist since her debut album Pink Friday, but she feels that she doesn’t get the respect that she deserves or the same respect that her male counterparts received.

It all started when rapper Russ posted a clip from his recent Rap Radar interview where he told Elliott Wilson and B. Dot, “You know who else people really need to start putting respect on is Nicki Minaj — period.” He also stated that Minaj “birthed so many females” and with that, she has influenced several artists who came after her. She retweeted the clip thanking Russ and then indulged about her time in the music industry.

“In any field, women must work TWICE as hard to even get HALF the respect her male counterparts get. When does this stop?” she tweeted. “The greats collaborated w/Drake, Kendrick & Jcole b/c they’re dope MC’s. They collab’d w/nicki cuz someone pulled a gun to their heads…” She then continued, “Putting ppl in the same sentence as me after my 10 years of consistent winning. What are you teaching THEM? They’d never do this to a man.”

To support her argument, Minaj retweeted a 2010 tweet from Kendrick Lamar where he said, “Just realized. Moe n—az hate nicki minaj than woman do. #yallniggazisreallypausewhenithinkaboutit.” She stated that the tweet is still relevant and in order for her to get the proper respect in Hip-Hop, she’d had to dress as a man.

Earlier this year, Minaj became of the most commercially successful rappers in Hip-Hop after she surpassed Aretha Franklin’s record for the most Billboard hits after “No Frauds,” “Regret in Your Tears,” and “Changed It” simultaneously hit Billboard’s Hot 100. Despite her successes, Minaj has been harshly criticized over the years for her music.
