Earlier today, Nicki Minaji posted on Twitter that she will no longer be posting on Instagram after this week. She does not agree with Instagram removing likes from posts. Nicki says that the removal of likes will hurt independent artists in the long run.

They will replace that too. You’ll see. This isn’t about how smaller companies will cope. It’s about WHY the bigger company is doing it. This is why musicians make no money. The labels & streaming services knew what to say to pacify us. They continue to make the REAL MONEY.

We are so easily pacified. Harriet would never. Y’all smoking dick if y’all think labels ain’t pissed about the level of power independent artists now have by way of IG. They all work TOGETHER. Unlike us... settling for crumbs. But memba when I spoke on other shit b4 it happened?
