LeBron James says Future belongs on rap’s Mount Rushmore, Nicki Minaj reacts
Fans are discussing who should take the fourth spot on a hip hop Mount Rushmore.
An image of a hip hop Mount Rushmore featuring Drake, Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole has been causing quite a stir on social media. A fourth spot was left unoccupied and many fans are discussing which rapper who owned the last decade belongs in the photo.
On Wednesday (May 28), LeBron James took to Twitter to weigh in on the debate with his choice. He tweeted, “Future Hendrix.” His opinion garnered mixed reactions from several people on social media, including Nicki Minaj, who let the Los Angeles Lakers star know that she should’ve been his fourth pick.
“Never thought I’d get the opportunity to give you the alley oop,” she tweeted LeBron. “But you almost had it. It’s N I C K I…EMMMM I N A J!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Nicki’s name has been one of the few mentioned as a contender for the fourth spot. During the 2010s, she released several hit albums including Pink Friday, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, The Pinkprint and Queen — which have all been certified platinum at least once. Her first two LPs peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. She also had multiple top 10 singles, including “Super Bass,” “Starships” and “Anaconda.”
Several fans believe Nicki should be on the hip hop Mount Rushmore. Twitter user @HipHopNumbersPlus tweeted, “Honestly, the Nicki Minaj disrespect is wild. I pledge not to let people just write her out of the conversation. She is on the 2010s Mount Rushmore there’s no logical debate against that.”
“Nicki Minaj deserves to be on any rap Mount Rushmore or ‘Top List’ of the 2010s,” tweeted @goldenminpjm. “And her or her fans saying that doesn’t make it not true. People really have an issue with people just claiming what they deserve based on impact. Everyone needs to be ‘humble.’”
Twitter user @_bobbyfoster wrote, “The hip hop Mount Rushmore thing is so simple to say. If we’re ONLY including the generation of the decade it’s obviously Nicki Minaj. If we’re including who owned the decade in general, then it’s Kanye or Nicki. I don’t see any other options.”
