Lauryn Hill Speaks Out On Nicki Minaj vs. Hot 97 Summer Jam Mess

It’s not often that we get to hear from our girl L. Boogie, however, the events that transpired yesterday between Hot 97 and Nicki Minaj at Summer Jam definitely didn’t sit too well with her.  Ms. Hill hopped on twitter today, to clear up rumors that she was initially suppose to come out on stage as part of Nicki Minaj’s set, as well as to state her two cents on everything that transpired. She wrote:

No disrespect to Nicki, but I need to clear up an inaccuracy. I was not scheduled to be a special guest on her set at Summer Jam, I was invited by Nas to perform with him. I don’t have details on exactly what transpired between the station and the artists, but I do support artists standing by their beliefs, and walking with integrity. We have to find a better way to commercially exploit music, while giving artists their proper respect. This cannot be done while taking their contributions for granted, or trying to control the scope of their growth and power through threats and fear tactics. We can do better than this, there is a better way, or else ‘we’ (the proverbial we) find ourselves in danger of being hypocrites!!!

Ms. Lauryn Hill

So eloquently said.  These artists aren’t playing these days.
