Nicki Minaj On BET Website

In the wonderful world of TwitterNicki Minaj opens up to fellow tweeters about sexism in the hip-hop industry. Her tweet from Wednesday evening, October 25th, read: “In any field, women must work TWICE as hard to even get HALF the respect her male counterparts get. When does this stop?”

With fame and fortune one can assume that issues like sexism at work would be irrelevant, however, Minaj shows the Twitter world that sexist double-standards are still present in the music industry. Nicki has won numerous awards as well as hitting the charts, yet somehow men seem to belittle her and her talent.

According to  Harpers’s Bazaar,  Minaj has shown us that she is worthy by racking up the most Hot 100 entries to ever be held since Aretha Franklin. Now that is impressive! So why are men still questioning Nicki’s talent? She clearly has what it takes to be the Queen of Rap!

Nicki also proves her point by reposting a tweet from Kendrick Lamar from seven years ago and captions it: “This is so telling. And scary. I’d have to wear some baggy pants n timbs for men to openly give props.”

Nicki Minaj Tweet From Her Twitter Page
 Unfortunately, women around the globe deal with being disrepected by men in the workplace and are constantly underestimated in spite of holding management positions. Women that have degrees or years of work experience are not being taken seriously, and are harassed for being a female and left discouraged and hopeless. The fact that Minaj shared her disgust of sexist, double-standards in hip-hop, allows women from unique backgrounds but similar situations know that they are not alone and to keep their heads held high for their dreams, even if they have to work ten times harder than a man would.
