Forbes Says Iggy Azalea “Runs Hip-Hop” And Nicki Minaj Isn’t Having It

Forbes recently boldly stated, “Hip Hop Is Run By A White, Blonde, Australian Woman” and this caused an up roar across social media. Lets not forget that Forbes Magazine is a financial magazine that focuses on finances of the rich and famous. Since when did they start sharing their views on who’s running hip hop?


Sadly, this is far too common in mainstream entertainment. We’ve seen this happen to other genres of music such as Rock, Blues, & Jazz. At one point each of these genres were spear headed by predominantly black culture and now the race is near non-existent. Having Forbes even utter those words isn’t only bold, but highly offensive to all that Nicki Minaj has done for women in a short amount of time.

As a New Jersey native it came to no surprise when Sebastien birthed a knack for writing. During his college days the young blogger gained experience through international talkers such as The Maury Show and The Mo’nique Show. After years of interning and assisting the aspiring journalist threw caution to the wind and launched The Gay Bestie, LLC. Ladies brace yourselves because Sebastien is taking you places where you’ll be sure to blush and share a laugh! He’s giving exactly what’s been missing. Grab you’re favorite beverage (i.e. red wine), sit back, and prepare to gab about this with your girlfriends the minute you see them.

Thanks !

Thanks for sharing this, you are awesome !
