Quotables: Dr. Dre on Nicki Minaj, Peter Rosenberg, and Summer Jam

Just in case you don’t know the story, here is a quick run down:

Basically DJ Peter Roseberg of Hot 97 criticized Nicki Minaj and her track “Starship” saying it isn’t real hip hop. Lil Wayne, quickly gave the command that YMCMB would be pulling out of Summer Jam and Nicki Minaj (the obvious headliner) would not be performing. Thus, a firestorm has started…YMCMB vs. Peter Rosenberg. Dr. Dre comments…

“First of all, Nicki Minaj was the only one who ruined 55,000 fans’ expectations of the night,” said Dr Dre in a recent interview. “It has nothing to do with Rosenberg. You go out there and you perform for your fans.”

The rapper had equally harsh words for the Hot 97 DJ as well, adding: “We have too many what I call ‘semi-super experts’ who always try to redefine hip-hop from its infancy. She’s an artist whether I like her or I don’t like her. My daughter loves her and thinks that she’s the world, and that’s the case.”
