Lil Wayne Talks About Young Money’s Absence At Summer Jam 2012 x Birdman Talks About OKC Disrespecting Weezy

In the video above, Lil Wayne chats to MTV about why he pulled Nicki Minaj from performing at Hot 97’s Summer Jam 2012 in New Jersey on June 3rd.

“That’s a female; first and foremost Nicki Minaj is a female. I don’t know what anyone else believes, but I believe females deserve the ultimate respect at all times no matter, when or where or how.”

“As soon as she called me and told me she felt disrespected, I just declined everything. I pulled her from the show because… no person that works with me will be disrespected in my presence as long as I’m on this planet.”

“I feel like a woman should be respected at all times, therefore I made the right decision.”

Hit the jump to watch a clip of Birdman talking about how he has no respect for Oklahoma City Thunder’s Chesapeake Energy Arena and the staff who work there, because of the way they treated Weezy F Baby not once but twice.

Why Did Lil Wayne Cancel Young Money’s Set At Summer Jam 2012?

Why Did Lil Wayne Cancel Young Moneys Set At Summer Jam 2012

Yesterday, Lil Wayne sent out a tweet half an hour after Hot 97‘s Summer Jam 2012 had begun at the Met Life Stadium in New Jersey saying that his Young Money crew will not be performing at the show.

“Young Money ain’t doing summer jam.”

The reason behind Weezy cancelling Young Mula‘s set at the concert was because one of Hot 97‘s radio personalities, Peter Rosenberg, called Nicki Minaj‘s “Starships” song wack and not real hip-hop at the start of the show.

“Now hold on, before I get to the real hip-hop shit of the day, cause I see the real hip-hop heads sprinkled in here, I see ’em. I know there are some chicks waiting to see ‘Starships’ later, I’m not talking to y’all right now. Fuck that bullshit, I’m here to talk about real hip-hop shit.”

My personal opinion is that Tune was right to pull his YM artists from performing at the show. If Nicki was the headliner (meaning most people bought tickets to see her) and the Hot 97 DJ’s are calling her tracks wack, then she and Tunechi have every right to feel disrespected and not perform.
