Nicki Minaj’s ‘Re-Up’ off to a Slow Start

November 26, 2012  |  

From Eur Web

Nicki Minaj’s “Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded” album may have gone platinum, but its follow up – an expanded version titled “Pink Friday Roman Reloaded: The Re-Up,” released Nov. 19 – hasn’t gotten off to as good of a start, and she’s putting the blame on three of the nation’s biggest retailer for making the CD difficult to purchase.

“It is hard to get the album because the stores basically said that the last few re-releases they had put out did not do well and they didn’t want to take a chance,” she said in an appearance on New York radio station Power 105.1′s The Breakfast Club

    Well, i bought the album. If i like the music, I will buy it. Nicki owes me nothing and I’m not here for her to be representing me, I’m just here for the entertainment. I like the songs added. i’m just confused at why it was a re-release when there were enough new songs to release a new album. Say what you want, but Young Money stay stretching pennies to dollars (feature yourselves, re-release everything, and act out just enough to appeal to “others” and “offend/alienate” black ppl enough so they will listen/watch just to hate on it or disregard it all together and trash it, sight unseen and song unheard, but keep your name in their mouths and added as a word in their iphone spellcheck)

    Blame yourself Nicki, we dont like you anymore. You went from one of the baddest female rappers in the game to a gimick in record time, its finally time for you to sit that big fake a$$ down and stop embarrassing our people.

    “the last few re-releases”–I don’t follow Nicki, but dang, how many times can you release the same thing? Perhaps she should focus on making new music.

  • Meyaka

    Roman and Martha why are y’all letting Nikki re-release the same album yet again? It’s three of y’all can’t you come up with a brand new album? I don’t understand…

      CTFU, I never get re-releasing albums anyway. I’m sorry the “extras” are not worth another ten bucks.

  • Shes really surprised that she re-released the same album three times and no one wants to carry it. DUH! Floor space is precious and valuable, if you already got versions one and two of the SAME album on your shelves why in the heck would you make room for a third. Its logistics honey, any one that wants to peep just the NEW tracks on your album will do so online.

    How she gonna get mad that a her remake of her bubblegum rap/pop Barbie trash music ain’t selling?! It ain’t the store’s fault her crap ain’t selling, they can’t put guns to customer’s head and force them to buy it! Even if is a brand new album, still can’t blame stores, plus CDs are obsolete now, people download music these days!

    • Chassie

      I think she’s saying stores aren’t putting out her re-release because previous re-releases (not by her) did not do well, but I might be reading it incorrectly.

        Nope, YOU read right! Some ppl are just a little too enthusiastic to jump on Nicki to interpret the article correctly.

        • honest

          shes still trash..i wont support a black woman dressed as a white woman who plays the race card when its convenient for her…and her lyrics are disgusting black women have enough on there plates i refuse to be associated with her trash music

          • lalatarea

            You’re right! I’m just saying some ppl wore blinded by disdain as soon as they read her name lol

            THANK YOU! I can’t stand that bish’s music, she’s a joke to the rap world next to Future and 2 Chains!
