Nicki Minaj Throws Down the Gauntlet Against BET, Won’t Perform at Awards

BET apologized to Minaj for the tweet

The rapper was up for five awards at this year's Grammys, and walked away with Best Rap Album for "Invasion of Privacy.' Following the show however, the 'Money" rapper posted a video to social media saying that the backlash she is receiving is unwarranted.

As of Monday afternoon, her name still appears on BET Experience's official site, as does that of another co-headliner, one who-perhaps tellingly-is slated to perform on a different night: Cardi B.

She said in the now-deleted clip: I've been taking a lot of s##t today. Number 1 album as well.

The previous night, Cardi impressed as she won in the male-dominated category Best Rap Album beating out Pusha-T, Travis Scott, Nipsey Hussle, and the late Mac Miller. And I'm sick of this s-. (She wasn't nominated for any awards this year, nor did she attend Sunday's ceremony).

Earlier today, Nicki Minaj revealed that she was no longer performing at the BET Experience concert in June after the BET network made a decision to blast her during the Grammy's last night. "I locked myself in the studio for 3 months, my n*gga". My album went #1 and spend [sic] 21 weeks straight on billboard top ten! Some songs couldn't even get on the f-ing album because my nose was so f-ing stuffy from my pregnancy. I listen to my album and I cry because I know the hell I went thruu doing the album is always a bittersweet memory.

'I read an article that Mac Miller's family said that if he don't win, they want me to win, so I'm sharing this Grammy with you, mother***er!
