Following a performance, in Boston as part of her Pink Friday 2 World Tour Nicki Minaj took to media to address critics who suggest that she only works with “nobodies.”

The backlash began when the renowned singer invited JT, Bia, Akbar V, Maliibu Miitch and Katie Got Bandz to join her on stage for their collaboration “Super Freaky Girl (Queens Mix).” Despite each rapper delivering performances in “Gag City” and impressing Minaj herself critics still found reasons to criticize.

“99% of em is NOBODIES,” one X account quoted a line from Minaj’s “Freedom” song, as another wrote “Girl you literally have a bunch of nobodies on the stage who can’t even compete in top 200 who tf bumping Katie bandz, akbar and malibu or even a bia.”

In response to the criticism the influential artist, from Queens, New York shared on a social media platform; “Well I guess your faves are ALL nobodies who can’t compete b/c they’ve all gotten the collaboration they requested. Silly wabbits #GagCity tour has already made history for being the most successful tour by a female rapper in history after only 17 shows. Let’s see where it ranks out of all HIP HOP tours (male or female) when we wrap.”

She went on to thank The Barbz for their support while also listing her major milestones since dropping Pink Friday 2 back in December.

“I guess they wuz rlly believing the tour wasn’t selling that’s why yall rlly mad huh? Love. Light. Live. Life,” she added. “I’ll cherish these moments forever. The energy & beauty the Barbz bring with them. You’d have to rlly be there to understand the level up. We’re just getting started”

“Sneaker line out TMRW #PinkFridayFragrance selling out non stop #PinkFridayNails loved #PinkFriday2GAGCITY Record breaking tour #PinkFriday2 Platinum album #HeavyOnIt RECORD LABEL,” she asserted.
