Rap artist Nicki Minaj has spoken out against sexism in hip-hop.

Writing on Twitter Yesterday, the musician responded to a comment by the rapper Russ that, “People needa put more respect on @NICKIMINAJ name”.

“This was so nice of you my love, thank you,” wrote Minaj, before commenting that, “In any field, women must work TWICE as hard to even get HALF the respect her male counterparts get. When does this stop?”

She continued by suggesting that when she’d collaborated with artists, this hadn’t always been their choice, but instead the recommendation of their record label.

“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 said.

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.

Minaj then dug up a seven year old Tweet by Kendrick Lamar stating that, “Moe niggaz hate nicki minaj than woman do.”

Quoting the Tweet, the rapper called the comments, “so telling. And scary.”

Yesterday, Minaj wrote on Instagram that Kanye West’s track ‘Monster’, on which she guest raps, was almost cut from ‘My Dark Twisted Fantasy’. Jay-Z, Rick Ross and Bon Iver also worked on the single.

“Kanye called me to tell me Jay put a verse on this song & that he was still deciding if he would put it on his album,” Minaj wrote. “It was like an hour-long call where I tried to convince him to let the song stay on his album.

“He felt this verse would end up being the talk of the album. I said: ‘YOU’RE KANYE WEST!!!!’,” she revealed, before later adding: “Kanye, thank you for being the genius you are. You always put others first.”
