Rickey Smiley Morning Show Featured Video

It was all good a few months ago. Remember when Nicki Minaj pulled out of HOT97′s Summer Jam concert in June? Where did she go to vent? Who was playing her new single “Starships” when the other station was saying she sold out to crossover radio? That would be NYC’s Power 105.1 Breakfast Club morning show. Well, Nicki was not trying to hear the pleas being copped by the hosts of the popular morning show earlier this week, when she gave them a stern tongue lashing for not being prepared for their interview with her. Nicki went in on DJ Envy, Angela Yee, and Charlamagne, questioning how they are even on the radio with such poor interviewing skills. Check out some excerpts from the fiery exchange below:

Nicki Gets Turnt Up & Goes Off on DJ Envy

“Why don’t you have the songs cued up though? I wanna hear ‘High School’, I wanna hear ‘Hell Yeah’, I wanna hear ‘I’m Legit’, I wanna hear ‘Up in Flames’. Y’all don’t even know these songs. You guys clearly don’t support me, neither does Clue, but that’s neither here nor there. Those are the songs that I would like y’all to play. I don’t understand why I’m coming to radio and y’all don’t even have my songs ready.[…]That’s the main focus of the kid coming to the radio. (*banging her fists on the table*) When the kid comes to the radio, the kid comes to hear her songs on the radio!”

Nicki’s Reaction When Angela Yee Said She Hadn’t Seen The Music Video for “Freedom”

“How are y’all on radio, especially if you know an artist is about to come up to your show and you know, she just put out a video…what would make you not watch it? When I go to the UK my fans are like, ‘Oh you always have the best interviews out there,’ because it’s a knowledgeable interview. They know what they’re talking about. They’ve done the research. Even when I do magazine interviews it’s such a turnoff when people don’t know anything that they’re talking to me about. Like, how are you gonna ask me about a video and you haven’t even seen it. The video is four minutes”.
