Hip-hop legend Dr Dre has fiercely criticised Nicki Minaj for pulling out of a US gig hosted by broadaster Hot 97 after one of the station's DJ's criticised her single, 'Starships'.
Dre slammed Minaj for her reaction to the on-air comments made by DJ Peter Rosenberg, saying she owed it to her fans to perform the US show.
"First of all, Nicki Minaj was the only one who ruined 55,000 fans' expectations of the night," said Dr Dre in a recent interview. "It has nothing to do with Rosenberg. You go out there and you perform for your fans."
The rapper had equally harsh words for the Hot 97 DJ as well, adding: "We have too many what I call 'semi-super experts' who always try to redefine hip-hop from its infancy. She's an artist whether I like her or I don't like her. My daughter loves her and thinks that she's the world, and that's the case."
