Nicki Minaj is seemingly reacting after the BET Hip Hop Awards failed to nominate “Seeing Green,” her collaboration with Drake and Lil Wayne.
“If you mention ‘HipHop’ in 2021 & don’t mention #SeeingGreen that tells me everything I need to know,” the rap queen tweeted on Thursday (Sept. 9).

While Nicki did not specifically call out the BET Hip-Hop Awards, her cryptic tweet comes just hours after the network announced the nominees for the 2021 awards. “Whole Lotta Money (Remix),” her collaboration with BIA, received two nods for Song of the Year and Best Collaboration. However, “Seeing Green” was shut out of the nominations.
You better let BET know cause ever since you stopped showing up the show ain’t been the same.

Nicki has had a contentious relationship with BET. She blasted the network following the 2019 BET Awards and pulled out of the BET Experience following a social post that celebrated Cardi’s Best Rap Album Grammy win at her expense.
“When u go out of ur way to b spiteful & hurt artists who have always supported ur show,” she tweeted in June 2019. “when you fire great ppl who have put their heart & soul into the show… when you’d rather be a messy reality show than a prestigious award show… when ur still being dragged by that lace.”

On Thursday, Nicki also answered questions from fans including one about her new music. When asked how she would describe the first single off her upcoming fifth album, she replied, “Game changer.”
Nicki was also asked what Drake told her to help her overcome her writer’s block. “Reminded me that I’m the greatest,” she responded.
Plus, she revealed that she was supposed to perform at Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards, but she had to cancel at the last minute.
“I just pulled out. I’ll explain why another day,” she tweeted. “But I love those guys at MTV. thank you Bruce. I love you so much. Next year we there baby.”
