Nicki Minaj Reflects on ‘Playtime Is Over’ 12-Year Anniversary, Calls Out Fellow Hip Hop Artists

Nicki Minaj‘s debut mixtape, Playtime Is Over, came out 12 years ago today!

The 36-year-old “Swalla” rapper took to Instagram on Friday (July 5) to reflect.

“12 years ago I dropped my 1st mixtape,” she wrote along with the artwork. “Wrote every single word on every single song. I was so proud of that. Eventually the barbz were all wearing pink hair, Chinese bangs, & Barbie chains. Colorful wigs came all the way back in style. Everyone became Barbies & Dolls.”

“I always shouted out my influences in my interviews,” she continued. “Now a days, it’s become cool to pretend u weren’t influenced by other artists. S/O to the ones big enough to do it: Kash, Asian, Cuban, Saweetie, Meg, Malibu, YOUNG MA etc. No female rapper (other than Trina) did a song w/me or congratulated me on my billboard accomplishments. I didn’t mind. I never felt they were obligated to do so. Just like Beyonce isn’t obligated to congratulate or collaborate with Normani, etc. — I never had a crusade by radio stations, influencers & blogs to make my song number 1 when Anaconda was #2 on the Hot 100. I never had a group of men in the studio writing my songs for me so it took a while between albums.”

“Please stop these write ups about what I didn’t do,” she added. “Y’all are rlly sick & ima call y’all out one by one on Queen Radio. Most of yall doing these write ups have never fought for anything in life. You just sit on the sidelines & watch the doers do!!!!

She finished, “To my fans; I love, cherish you, adore you, and thank you. God bless you.”
