Nicki Minaj Apologizes For Using Malcolm X On ‘Lookin A** Ni**a’ Cover

Published

Nicki Minaj came under fire this week for displaying an image of Malcolm X holding a gun on the cover of her new track, “Lookin A** Ni**a.” Now, the rapper is apologizing for the cover art that many are calling offensive and inappropriate.

“What seems to be the issue now? Do you have a problem with me referring to the people Malcolm X was ready to pull his gun out on as Lookin A** N*ggaz? Well, I apologize,” Minaj wrote on Instagram. “That was never the official artwork nor is this an official single,” she explained. “This is a conversation. Not a single. I am in the video shooting at “Lookin A** Niggaz” and there happened to be an iconic photo of Malcolm X ready to do the same thing for what he believed in!!!! It is in no way to undermine his efforts and legacy. I apologize to the Malcolm X estate if the meaning of the photo was misconstrued. The word “n*gga” causes so much debate in our community while the “n*gga” behavior gets praised and worship. Let’s not. Apologies again to his family. I have nothing but respect an adoration for u. The photo was removed hours ago. Thank you.”
The track, which Nicki clarifies is not a single, features the rapper firing shots at the men that go to extremes to pick up women. In the video, the singer can be seen showing off her body in a sexy black ensemble, while she plays with her long pony tail. And in case you were wondering, Minaj says “ni**a” nearly a dozen times in the first 30-seconds … It’s a 2:51 minute track.

It’s no secret that Drake’s been on a giving spree while in Miami. From college kids to hotel workers and everyone in between, the rapper has been changing lives one dollar at a time — and now we can see it all in action.

Clearly, it was “God’s Plan” for Drizzy to take his entire budget for his music video and spend it on various residents and workers in Florida’s hot spot city. That’s right almost a million bucks — $996,631.90 to be exact — was slotted for Drake to shoot the visuals for his latest hit but instead he used all the money to make a difference. And in doing so, he made us cry … multiple times. Just watch the video below.

In a statement the self-professed “6god” said this video was “the most important thing” he’s ever done. We’d agree.
