Nicki Minaj continues to show her support for George Floyd.
On Saturday (June 6), the New York rapper shared a handful of links with fans, encouraging them to donate to George Floyd’s justice fund, as well as Black Lives Matter. She also linked to the National Bail Collective, which is an effort aimed at providing relief to protesters incarcerated. Last week, Drake and The Weeknd made six-figure donations to the aforementioned organization.
Minaj’s post came after she spoke out against the death of Floyd, an unarmed black man that died at the hands of police brutality last month. In a post to Instagram, the “Megatron” spitter expressed her frustration.
“When 4 black THUGS commit a crime, if 1 person commits murder, they ALL get charged & CONVICTED,” she wrote prior to the charges that were filed against the three other officers involved. “When white THUGS/COPS KILL innocent black people, ALL 4 of them are responsible‼️‼️‼️ They all watched an unarmed man die and did nothing‼️ Why do they have different rules?”
She continued, “Let your voice be heard. Be angry. White people have been using violence against us since the beginning of time. We didn’t invent violence & looting. Will these officers actually get convicted? Probably not. Let your voice be heard. Call & TEXT to be a part of these petitions. May Mr. Floyd Rest In Peace.”
In addition to using her platform to speak out against injustices in America, Minaj is also focused on music. Over the weekend, she revealed her plans to contact Kanye West about their unreleased track “New Body.” During DJ Boof’s Instagram Live session, Minaj hopped in the comments section and wrote, “Ok let me hit ‘Ye about ‘New Body’ I see y’all asking. The [fact] that we shot a whole music video to this song.”
