Tell us something we don't know.
Here's Nikki D, the first female rapper signed to Def Jam, still salty about not being invited to this year's VH1 Hip Hop Honors.
XXLMag.com: So what do you think about some of the new female MCs that are out now?
Nikki D: There aren’t any out! Who’s out? You mean, Nicki Minaj? That’s not a rapper. That’s a girl with her ass on the screen. Nice hairdo and she’s saying some things but she’s not a rapper. She’s not an MC. She’s an artist. She’s an entertainer. There’s a difference. She can go out there and open her mouth and say whatever but people ain’t listening to her. They looking at her. And rapping is about the skill. It ain’t about your fat ass. It ain’t about your set of titties. It ain’t about that long-ass weave.
XXLMag.com: Damn, Nikki, want to let off any more steam?
Nikki D: I would like to say to everybody involved at the VH1, whoever was involved in Hip Hop Honors, all of the executives, everybody who had anything to do with that shit, you’re wrong for sitting there and watching that shit happen like that. It ain’t just about me but it’s about me and all the other people who were not included in that bill. There are a lot of other people besides Nikki D that wasn’t there but to just leave out the first female rapper signed? Yeah, that was some shitty shit.
I heard T La Rock, the guy who started Def Jam with Rick Rubin, before there was a such thing as a Russell Simmons, wasn't invited. They probably didn't want to invite anyone who might show up asking for money.
