Nikki Minaj’s Controversial Album Cover Uses Malcolm X Image

First of all, my Uncle Hollis and I are already pissed at Nicki Minaj.  Uncle Hollis said the DVD The Nicki Minaj Story sucks big time.

“All they did was talk,” he said.

Well, the cover did say documentary, which would contain a lot of talking.  Yet, as you order online, “documentary” contains small letters, so small you might miss the word.

I’m pissed because a meme shows Nicki Minaj has a fake booty.

Now, Miss Minaj has managed to piss even more people off. Album cover art for Lookin Ass Nigga contains a historic photo of Malcolm X, a cover inspiring folks to boycott Minaj.

I ain’t going to discuss whether I think this foolish or not.  Yet, I just wonder if Nicki Minaj had permission to use the Malcolm X photo.  A photo copyright lasts until the authors death plus at least seventy more years.

Because she removed the image, I really shouldn’t worry about it.
