Hot 97’s Peter Rosenberg is far from ready to apologize to Young Money’s Nicki Minaj over calling out her music at Sunday’s pre-Summer Jam concert and has gone on to address a threat from her alleged boyfriend.
Addressing Minaj sidekick Safaree’s weekend Twitter threat, Rosenberg said he would gladly meet him face-to-face.
“Nicki’s boyfriend went on Twitter and said he was gonna punch me in the face because I don’t like a pop dance song that his girlfriend made. Word homie? That’s your favorite song? Is that your favorite song? A girly a** dance pop song?,” Rosenberg said. “I’ll tell you what Nicki’s boyfriend, you want to punch me in the face because I don’t like pop dance songs? Please go right ahead. Yeah, and make that check payable to Peter E. Rosenberg. I got you! I got you! [You gonna sue?] Absolutely!” (Hot 97)
On Sunday (June 3), Safaree publicly threatened to attack Rosenberg at Summer Jam.
“YOOO PETER ROSENBURG WHEN I COME TO SUMMA JAM YOU GETTING PUNCHED IN YA F*CKING FACE U F*CKING P*SSY!!!!!!! I PROMISE U N*GGA!!!!!,” he tweeted Sunday. (Safaree’s Twitter)
Earlier today, Minaj spoke to rival station Power 105.1 about what popped off at the Hot 97 concert.
“I wasn’t going to do ‘Starships’ and I think everybody knows that,'” Minaj told hosts DJ Envy, Charlamagne Tha God and Angela Yee. “I’m way smarter than that. I know what people wanted to see. I think it was just someone trying to be sarcastic — it was improper timing, it was in bad taste. Everybody makes mistakes but you’ve got to own your mistake. That’s the problem. When you don’t own it, then people feel like, ‘Oh, okay, you feel like you can do this in the future and get away with it,’ and that’s the problem. … I don’t want an apology. I don’t care about an apology. … ” (“The Breakfast Club”)
Despite the rapper’s stance, Rosenberg said he never planned on intentionally calling her out at the pre-Summer Jam festivities.
“In addition to the morning show, I do an underground show on Sunday nights, I host all of our showcases, I interview underground artists at my house, that’s kind of who I am,” Rosenberg said. “So when I went out there, I wasn’t really thinking about it, I was just trying to hype up all of the fans who were there to see Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, more of the underground acts. It just sort of came out. I did not anticipate the backlash.” (TMZ)
