Last night Nicki Minaj was set to perform at Hot 97′s Summer Jam, but after Hot 97 DJ Peter Rosenberg publicly expressed his dislike for her single ‘Starship’ at the event, Weezy decide to pull the plug on her role in it. As patently ridiculous as the Peter Rosenberg/Funk Flex vs. Nicki Minaj/Lil Wayne ‘beef’ may be, you’d have a hard time seriously arguing the public wasn’t the one who came out on top when Nas and Lauryn Hill stepped in to fill the unexpected void in the night’s proceedings. Or as Jeff Rosenthal eloquently puts it:

I really hope you’re there to witness it.” That was before Lil Wayne pulled his Young Money star off the bill, before the night was thrown into a shredder, lit on fire, and then reconstructed with spit and tape into something so much better than initially conceived. It was before Nas and Lauryn Hill stepped onstage, unrehearsed, in a twist that was both unimaginable and perfect. History was indeed made last night – and somehow, amazingly, ironically, Minaj was the one who missed it.
