Queens native Nicki Minaj is finally giving fans what they want–a free concert. The August 14, New York City show is a make-up for bailing on Hot 97’s Summer Jam in June.
“We are excited to offer the first 1,500 fans the opportunity to attend the show,” a link from Minaj’s Twitter account stated on her Website. “You must line up at the venue no earlier than 12 noon at the secret location. The first 1,500 fans in line will receive wrist bands, that will guarantee access to the event.”
Fans are encouraged to fill out a modest form with their name, email address, age and state.
But Minaj isn’t just “talking” to fans. On her Website post, the rapper writes Hot 97, Power 105, Z100, 92.3 Now, and WBLI should “listen and win.”
During Summer Jam, Hot 97/WQHT morning personality Peter Rosenberg ripped Minaj’s new single Starships as too “pop” and not enough hip hop.
It didn’t take long for Minaj mentor, and head of her record label, L’il Wayne to pull her from the show.
At the time she tweeted, “I go above and beyond for my fans. But won’t ever go against wayne’s word. What he says, goes.”
