1501 Rapper Erica Banks Claims Nicki Minaj Blocked Her For Saying She Only Works With Less Talented Female Artists

Erica Banks is setting the record straight on being unfollowed by Nicki Minaj on social media.

The rapper, who is currently signed to 1501 Certified Entertainment (founded by Carl Crawford), was previously unfollowed by the “Do We Have A Problem?” rapper after she allegedly liked a tweet that said Nicki Minaj doesn’t collaborate with rappers who are on her level musically. Erica Banks said via Instagram Live that,

“I love Nicki. But I just felt like, I been trying to reach out to her for a long time but I felt like she kinda ignores me and she entertains girls who really can’t rap.”

During a recent appearance on the “Big Facts” podcast, Erica Banks said,

“I commented, and I said I agree that Nicki kind of fuck with the girls who can’t really rap — when you got the girls … that really do. Now, some people might get mad at me for saying that, but it’s the truth. Everybody can’t rap.”

Her response earned her a block on social media from the New York icon.

While she still has a deep love for Nicki Minaj and remains a fan, Erica Banks shared that being unfollowed by one of her biggest inspirations on social media did hurt her feelings. She said,

“And I had to explain to everybody — we not saying that we are ungrateful of Nicki Minaj’s support, we just saying our feelings are hurt as a real fan that we haven’t worked together.”

Prior to being unfollowed, Minaj showed support for Banks across social media on more than one occasion.

Ironically enough, 1501 CEO Carl Crawford has been accused of trying to mold Banks into Megan Thee Stallion. Banks, a sassy raptress with a sultry southern drawl from Dallas, Texas, has been dubbed Megan Thee Stallion‘s “son” and accused of stealing her flow.
