Nicki Minaj plans to give a free concert in New York after backing out of Hot 97’s Summer Jam over the weekend.

Minaj was scheduled to headline the station’s Summer Jam on Sunday, but canceled after DJ Peter Rosenberg dissed her “Starships” single during the pre show of the concert. Later, Funkmaster Flex made the harsh statement: “We ain’t f–-kin with commercial rappers no more! If you lost the f–kin streets, its your fault!”

Minaj, who still working on details of her free concert, called Funkmaster Flex on Monday to explain why she decided not to do the concert and why she felt disrespected by Hot 97. Minaj didn’t bit her tongue and gave her thoughts on Rosenberg and Flex’s comments.

“The reference was more than just about ‘Starships,’ it also referenced bulls**t, it referenced ‘real’ Hip-Hop,” Minaj said. “So you can continue because that needs to be said, go ahead.

After got the audience up to speed about what Rosenberg said, Minaj added, “What happened was this, my fans didn’t appreciate his comment, my fans at Summer Jam didn’t appreciate his comments, nor did my fans who were watching the live stream. This was not about 2,000 people that he was talking to, this was streaming to the world.”

Flex apologized for Rosenberg’s timing. But he didn’t like that Minaj suggested the diss was a form of sexual discrimination.

Minaj said that she had no intentions of not performing, but was following Lil Wayne’s order.

“No one would’ve even known that I had a problem with any of this because, let me tell you something, I am not a quitter,” she said. “I don’t back down from anything, but Wayne gave me a very valuable lesson last night on knowing my worth. Wayne got me in this game. Wayne is the one who co-signed me to the rap world. I can’t believe after all these years, he’s still teaching me, after a man goes on stage and disrespects me, and trying to rile people up against me, and I still was going on that stage, and you know what? Shame on me! ”
