Hot 97 DJ Peter Rosenberg stirred up the biggest hip hop controversy of the last few months when he put Nicki Minaj on blast during the pre-game tailgate before the powerhouse radio station’s annual Summer Jam concert two Sundays ago. “I know there are some chicks here waiting to sing ‘Starships’ later,” he said to the crowd. “I’m not talking to y’all right now. F*** that bullsh*t. I’m here to talk about real hip-hop sh*t.” Word of this hardcore dis quickly made its way to Young Money head honcho Lil Wayne, who reacted by pulling Minaj from her headlining spot on the show just hours before she was supposed to hit the stage.
Minaj later called into Funkmaster Flex’s program on Hot 97 to defend herself, but she has yet to bury the hatchet with Rosenberg. However, Rosenberg himself seems ready to put the whole situation behind him, as he and his fellow Hot 97 compadre Angie Martinez showed up at Caroline’s Comedy Club in Midtown Manhattan the other night and showed this “surveillance camera footage” of what “really” happens when Rosenberg and his crew go off the air (please note the use of scare quotes). You guessed it, Rosenberg puts on a pink wig and dances around the studio lip syncing “Starships”!
Now, we’re the first to admit that the execution here is a bit corny, but it’s pretty apparent to us that Rosenberg wants to amicably resolve the issue that’s arisen between himself, Nicki, and the Barbz. By acting like an idiot on camera, he’s basically offered up the proverbial peace pipe to Minaj. Will she take it and puff, puff, pass, or will she come off looking like an uptight square by refusing to squash the beef? Either way, we’ll be sure to keep you posted!
