Nicki Minaj is fully on the Tekashi 6ix9ine train.
Not only did she co-sign him with a feature on his track 'FEFE', but then she claimed 'FEFE' as her own and added it to her album Queen in an (unsuccessful) attempt to propel the album to number one in its debut week.
Some believe Nicki's association with 69 is unsavory, considering he's currently on a suspended sentence for use of a minor in a sexual performance.
An article in Pitchfork summed up this argument.
The choice to use her platform to further legitimize a sexual predator is in direct contrast with the nation-wide, black women-led movement to silence music’s most infamous abuser (R. Kelly).
[…] If this pattern of normalization continues to seep into our culture, by the time the magnitude of the damage is determined it will have caused irreparable harm to society. […] I do hope she realizes that the message she sends by supporting an abuser threatens to eclipse the vibrant verses she has spent years perfecting.
Nicki fired back on that today, claiming there was a shady campaign to pay people to write articles like that and do her in.
