According to HipHop DX, the queen of rap, Nicki Minaj, took to twitter to express her sadness and frustration. In the tweets she grieves, “After Pop Smoke there’s no way we as rappers or our loved ones are still posting locations to our whereabouts. To show waffles & some fried chicken????! He was such a pleasure to work with. Condolences to his mom & family. This makes me feel so sick. Jesus. #SIP #PnbRock.”

Nicki Minaj cautions the family and friends of today’s rappers

Minaj continued to clap back at all who feel she is overreacting about Stephanie posting their location. Nicki says, “The ppl around these rappers gain so much. It’s time to start really reminding them over & over!!! At least TRY to put your foot down if you CARE! Tell them!!! You’re not loved like you think you are!!! You’re prey!!!! In a world full of predators!!!! What’s not clicking???!!!” Minaj continues her reply to a fan, thanking her and saying, “Yup. Ima say what I want. As a RAPPER & as a MOTHER. I know 1st hand how these guys feel coming from the streets then being able to provide for their moms. My heart is hurting for the MOTHERS OF THESE KIDS that tried to make something better of their lives!!! LETS EDUCATE ASAP!!!”

As Nicki continues to speak out in an attempt to help save lives, other rappers like Quavo, BIA, Asian Doll and more send there love. Cardi B however made it known that she had a different outlook than the “Super Freaky Girl” artist. She tweeted, “I highly doubt nikkas was looking at PNB’s babymom IG. He was in a bad location and people stay outside plotting. It’s very irresponsible and inconsiderate to blame her for something so tragic. We should be sending nothing but love to her and his family at this time.”

Dj Akademiks even chimed in to say everyone is out to blame everyone but the person who actually killed him. He said, “Everything else is extra.”

FM Hip-Hop sends our love and condolences to the rappers family and friends during this time.
