Dr. Dre had no sympathy for either side in the Hot 97 Summer Jam dispute
Dr. Dre, noted headphone magnate and occasional rapper, was paying attention to the biggest public brawl in recent hip hop history this weekend when Nicki Minaj and Peter Rosenberg went head to head, with Rosenberg calling her single "Starships" "bulls**t" and Minaj pulling out of the radio station's annual festival. And you know who Dr. Dre thought was right? Neither of them!
According to Gigwise, in a recent interview, Dre said, "First of all, Nicki Minaj was the only one who ruined 55,000 fans' expectations of the night. It has nothing to do with Rosenberg. You go out there and you perform for your fans."
He wasn't finished. About Rosenberg, he said, "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."
So it looks like the doctor is giving a strict prescription of "relax and be professional" to both sides. So what do you think? Should Rosenberg have kept his opinion to himself? Should Nicki Minaj have bucked up and performed? Let us know in the comments!
