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.
