As you may have heard, Nicki Minaj was a no show at Hot 97′s 2012 Summer Jam due to being felt disrespected by Hot 97 radio host Peter Rosenberg, causing Lil Wayne to pull the plug on her performance. With Nicki out, her surprise guests Nas and Lauryn Hill filled her spot, as Nas performed some hits and also brought our Lauryn Hill for “Ready or Not”, “Lost Ones” and “If I Ruled the World”.

Lauryn Hill addresses Nicki not taking the Summer Jam Stage:

No disrespect to Nicki, but I need to clear up an inaccuracy. I was not scheduled to be a special guest on her set at Summer Jam, I was invited by Nas to perform with him. I don’t have details on exactly what transpired between the station and the artists, but I do support artists standing by their beliefs, and walking with integrity. We have to find a better way to commercially exploit music, while giving artists their proper respect. This cannot be done while taking their contributions for granted, or trying to control the scope of their growth and power through threats and fear tactics. We can do better than this, there is a better way, or else ‘we’ (the proverbial we) find ourselves in danger of being hypocrites!!! – Ms. Lauryn Hill
