Netflix’s ‘Ladies First: Women in Hip-Hop’ Documentary Trailer Hit With Massive Backlash From Nicki Minaj’s Fans #Barbz As They Express Outrage Over Her Exclusion.

Nicki Minaj’s unparalleled achievements in the world of Hip-Hop have solidified her status as an industry trailblazer. With numerous record-breaking feats and a legacy that surpasses her peers, the rap sensation holds a special place in the history of the genre.

Amid the celebration of Hip-Hop’s 50th anniversary, Netflix is set to release ‘Ladies First: A Story of Women in Hip-Hop’ on August 9, honoring the contributions of female artists who have shaped the genre’s evolution. The star-studded four-part feature includes appearances from esteemed pioneers like MC Lyte, Da Brat, and Queen Latifah, as well as contemporary artists such as Cardi B, Latto, Tierra Whack, Coi Leray, and Saweetie.

However, when the official trailer for the documentary dropped, fans of Nicki Minaj, affectionately known as #Barbz, were disappointed to find her absence from the list of contributors. Given Nicki’s historic impact on the industry, her omission sparked outrage and raised questions about the selection process.

While rumors circulate that some artists declined permission for their music to be played during the broadcast, #Barbz remain unconvinced and continue to express their dissatisfaction with the exclusion of iconic figures like Missy Elliott, Lil Kim, Lauryn Hill, Foxy Brown, and Nicki Minaj.

As the premiere date draws near, the anticipation for ‘Ladies First’ is heightened, but the absence of these influential female artists leaves a notable void in the tribute to the women who have shaped and continue to shape the rap movement.
