Elliott Wilson Apologizes To Kai Cenat After Nicki Minaj Dispute

Elliott Wilson has issued a public apology to Twitch streamer Kai Cenat after feeling some type of way about his interview with Nicki Minaj earlier this week.

The hip hop journalist had previously interviewed the rapper when she dropped her 2014 album, ‘The Pinkprint,’ and again in 2018, following the release of ‘Queen.’ But amid her promotional campaign to support her latest record, ‘Pink Friday 2,’ Wilson wasn’t in the books for a sit-down chat.

On Thursday (December 14), the XXL editor took to his X account and shared a short clip of Minaj twerking during Cenat’s live stream. He captioned the photo, “Hip hop journalism,” a comment some fans perceived as an insult to the Twitch star.

Elliott Wilson Takes Accountability After Nicki Minaj Clapped Back

Wison has previously taken issue with artists often neglecting traditional hip hop for creators with mass audiences. Amid Nicki’s interview with Kai and Funny Marco, Wilson decided to voice his opinion. Social media, Nicki Minaj, and her fan base, the Barbz, didn’t think it needed to be at Cenat’s expense.

After coming across his initial tweet, Minaj didn’t hesitate to respond as she lashed out at Wilson for his remark before calling out his journalistic practices. She accused him of manipulating narratives to make her appear in a negative light.

“Elliot, if you’d spit JayZ d*** out for one second, you’d be able to be happy for the new comers,” the ‘Barbie Dangerous’ artist posted on Friday (December 15) in response to Wilson’s remark about the live stream.

She added:

“Isn’t that how y’all tried to tarnish my image? By saying I’m not welcoming new btchs in? Did songs with all of them tho. Why you not happy for a young black man like Kai. Tmrw btch.”

Nicki Minaj later elaborated on the situation, telling fans that Wilson had allegedly disrespected her in several tweets in the past as she referred to him as “Idiot Wilson.” She added, Nobody owes you s**t, h** n***a. F**k you!”

The podcast host attempted to clear the air by responding to Minaj as he clarified he was not disrespecting her with the tweet.

“Never dissed Nicki. Always said she’s the female rap [GOAT]. Over Lauryn, Missy, Kim and Foxy and all. I think Cardi B is dope too. Happy Holidays.”

On Saturday (December 16), however, Wilson hopped back on the social media platform to apologize for his comment, saying that he was out of line and should’ve never discredited the platform Cenat has been able to build from the ground up.

“I apologize to @KaiCenat + his fam,” Wilson wrote. “I was out of line and let my competitive nature get the best of me. Kai carved his own lane in the game, built a great platform and deserves respect. Salute the streamers and young creatives getting to the paper and pushing our culture forward.”
