Malcolm X Family Is Not Happy With Nicki Minaj

nicki7everyone is coming for nicki minaj and her sassy kanekalon jumbo ponytail.
the family of malcom x is not feeling that single cover for “lookin ass n*gga”.
they recently spoke out about it…

In an exclusive statement to The Associated Press on Friday, Malcolm X’s daughter, Ilyasah Shabazz, said Minaj’s use of the picture “in no way is endorsed by our family.

“Ms. Minaj’s artwork for her single does not depict the truth of Malcolm X’s legacy,” Shabazz’s statement said.

Minaj apologized Thursday. She pulled the artwork after she was criticized on social media platforms for using the photo for the cover of her new male-bashing song, “Lookin (Expletive) (Expletive).” The title uses the N-word.

Minaj said the single cover was “never the official artwork.”

Mark Roesler, CEO of CMG Worldwide — which handles the licensing and merchandizing issues for the Malcolm X estate — called Minaj’s use of the photo “dehumanizing.”

“This is a family photo that was taken out of context in a totally inaccurate and tasteless way,” said his statement on behalf of the family.

L. Londell McMillan, the attorney for the Malcolm X estate and the black leader’s daughters — and estate administrators — Ilyasah and Malaak Shabazz, said in a statement Friday that those using the famous photo of Malcolm X need to remove it immediately.

“Failure to do so within the next 24 hours shall result in legal action,” said McMillian, who is also the lawyer for Malcolm X’s daughters, Attallah, Qubilah and Gamilah Shabazz. “The initial act and subsequent acts of distribution were improper and ill-advised. Any disparagement, infringement or disrespect of Malcolm X, and his name, image, likeness and proprietary rights will not be tolerated.”

nicki6ruh roh.
well on lighter news.
and there is lighter news,
everyone is still talking about it and her.
bad press can be good press.
she even got the boys in their feelings.
sadly i think people are tired of nicki’s antics.
she has to come SUPER HARD with “the pink print”.
she got the inspiration for the title after jay’s “the blueprint” album.
i’m sure people might forget about her stupidity if she releases a good album.
lets hope she cuts that teeny bopper pop shit and goes back to basics.

  1. Lol at people trying to turn Malcolm X into some saint because they don’t like Nicki.
    “Ms. Minaj’s artwork for her single does not depict the truth of Malcolm X’s legacy,” <– who said it was that deep though?
    Smh.

    1. Come on now, It’s Malcom X! I’m not saying the man is God or anything, but I think a man that spent a great deal of his life fighting for the rights of the black community, and fought against the use of oppressive words like nigger/nigga, shouldn’t be associated with a song that bashes black men. That would be like me using a picture of Mother Teresa praying for a single called, “Stay on den knees bitch”. It’s just disrespectful. Nicki and her team should have seen this coming.

If you wouldn't say it on live TV with all your family and friends watching, without getting canceled or locked up, don't say it on here. Stay on topic, no SPAM, and keep it respectful. Thanks!
