Nikki D Slams US Rapper Ice Spice

Nikki D Slams US Rapper Ice Spice. The pioneering femcee spoke on people not taking criticism these days, female expression in hip-hop, and a whole lot more.

Nikki D is a pioneer for femcees: she was Def Jam’s first female signee and was among the first rap stars of her class during the late 1980s and early 1990s. As such, it’s no surprise that she has a couple of words of advice and potential hot takes on the new generation. Moreover, fans recently engaged in a lot of heated discussion over the 55-year-old’s comments on Ice Spice.

Specifically, they relate to her recent Betty Boop performance, which she posited as an example of a “prostitution era” in hip-hop. Nikki believes we’re currently in that phase, and in an exclusive interview with AllHipHop– of which they have an excerpt available on this topic- she explained why her comments aren’t as combative as they seem.

“When I call it the prostitution era, it’s simply what I saw with the [Ice Spice] performance, right?’ Nikki D began. “I was home chilling sipping on some wine, I saw the the video online and I said “What is this?” Shorty’s dress was literally above her butt. And I was like nothing was out but skin-a**, like this is not the girl that I remember. I felt like she had kind of pushed herself into a place of no return. Now when you out there it’s like walking outside, butt-necked, what else do we have?”

“Well, first thing they say is- and I always like to preference my own self with this when y’all come for me- I know I’m old,” Nikki D continued. “I know I had one big record, I know they don’t do it the way I used to do it anymore. Go ahead. I know all that so again, I just go back to y’all getting butt hurt. Y’all don’t know how to really take a punch or criticism. I tell you what, you would be so lucky to get the age that I am and you would be so lucky to get royalty checks that I got just two weeks ago in the mail 30 years later from that one song. You would be so lucky to see all those things years later, you feel me? Because what I did was timeless. I didn’t do trendy, I did classic.”

“There was a balance,” she concluded. “That’s the problem. so you take this generation now, what’s the balance of of this? Where’s the Lauryn Hills, where’s the MC Lytes? It was inappropriate [then], even though it was happening. Hence the reason why it never hit the forefront. They weren’t major acts. It wasn’t anything we as a people or we as a culture was celebrating… For me, it’s the manufactured Black woman. So when we have this idea of what the Black woman is today, we just look at the images we see. Now, do we need to see Michelle Obama [exclusively]? No! But we need balance and we don’t have it.” Check out more of the interview snippet, the full version of which is coming soon, in the “Via” link down below.
