(VIDEO) Hot 97′s Rosenberg Sorry if Nicki Minaj ‘Felt Bad’ About His Summer Jam Comments

Many people got acquainted with Peter Rosenberg, one part of the Cipha Sounds and Rosenberg Hot 97/WQHT morning show, after a controversial turn last summer with Nicki Minaj.

But there’s much more to the man.

Rosenberg, originally from the Washington, D.C. suburbs, isn’t just a hip hop guru, he’s a fan of broadcasting. Right from his Twitter bio, he pays homage to one of his idols, calling himself the ”Jewish Johnny Carson.” He says the title was self-imposed after the PBS documentary on Carson aired last year.

“I’ve always pursued things that I dreamed of doing,” Rosenberg tells FishbowlNY. “I dreamed of being like Funkmaster Flex and all the great jocks who were on Hot 97, and the other thing I’ve dreamed about doing is being a late night host.”

Rosenberg has branched into television with numerous projects for MTV. But as he told FishbowlNY in the video clip, Rosenberg has always been fascinated by hip hop.

Nicki Minaj Announces Free New York City Make-Up Concert

Queens native Nicki Minaj is finally giving fans what they want–a free concert. The August 14, New York City show is a make-up for bailing on Hot 97′s Summer Jam in June.

“We are excited to offer the first 1,500 fans the opportunity to attend the show,” a link from Minaj’s Twitter account stated on her Website. “You must line up at the venue no earlier than 12 noon at the secret location. The first 1,500 fans in line will receive wrist bands, that will guarantee access to the event.”

Fans are encouraged to fill out a modest form with their name, email address, age and state.

But Minaj isn’t just “talking” to fans. On her Website post, the rapper writes Hot 97, Power 105, Z100, 92.3 Now, and WBLI should “listen and win.”

During Summer Jam, Hot 97/WQHT morning personality Peter Rosenberg ripped Minaj’s new single Starships as too “pop” and not enough hip hop.

It didn’t take long for Minaj mentor, and head of her record label, L’il Wayne to pull her from the show.

At the time she tweeted, “I go above and beyond for my fans. But won’t ever go against wayne’s word. What  he says, goes.”

Headliner Nicki Minaj Bails on Hot 97 Summer Jam After Criticism From Morning Host Rosenberg

Nicki Minaj is one of the top rappers out there today. The Jamaica, Queens native was set to headline yesterday’s Hot 97 Summer Jam day-long concert at MetLife Stadium. But that never happened because just hours before Minaj was due to hit the stage, she was ordered by her mentor and record label head Li’l Wayne not to appear.

At issue, Hot 97/WQHT morning host Peter Rosenberg (simply Rosenberg on the air), according to the Daily News, made critical statements about Minaj latest song, Starships.

“Young Money ain’t doing summer jam,” Rosenberg tweeted, which is a reference to Wayne’s rap crew that includes Minaj.

And she didn’t.

“I go above and beyond for my fans. But won’t ever go against Wayne’s word. What he says, goes,” she tweeted last night.

In another tweet, she took a swipe at Hot 97, “I’d like to thank the staff @ Philly & Boston summer jams for treating their guests w/respect! Had a blast.”

A statement by Hot 97:

“Hot 97 Summer Jam is the biggest hip hop Festival in the world. It’s about more than one act, it always has been, it always will be. It is about a culture and we continue to deliver the greatest live hip hop experience on the planet.”
