Nicki Minaj Apologizes For "Lookin Ass Nigga Cover Artwork (PHOTO)
Today Nicki Minaj dropped what was said to be the official cover art work for her song "Lookin As N*gga" that dropped yesterday. The buzz from the controversial and lyrically women's anthem hit social media like wall fire. After the cover art dropped many people were outraged from the Malcom X cover. Nicki took to her Instagram to apologize for the image and it was removed.
Well, we all know that once the image is on social media their is no really taking it back so check out Nicki Minaj apology note to her fans below and tell us what you think.
"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 Ass Niggaz? Well, I apologize. That was never the official artwork nor is this an official single. This is a conversation. Not a single. I am in the video shooting at Lookin Ass 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 "nigga" causes so much debate in our community while the "nigga" 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"
I think that people looked at Nicki Minaj calling Malcom X the "Lookin ass N*gga" vs him looking for the "lookin' ass N*gga" you know this is a mess and I'm glad it's down now.
