Don't let all her near-nude twerking booty pics on Instagram and Twitter fool you, Nicki Minaj isn't always about form over substance. Though she might have apologized to Malcolm X's estate, Minaj chose to stick to her guns and called all out his daughter Ilyasah Shabazz, for acting so offended by some fan art.
Nicki Minaj is going through a physical transformation on social media sites lately, shedding her over the top looks and her clothes.

But just because Nicki's look is a big part of her persona doesn't mean it's all that Nicki cares about.
One of the hip-hop stars core principles seems to be: never back down from a fight; so when Malcolm X family lashed out a Nicki, she decided to lash back.
Minaj drew the ire of Malcolm X's family be including a fan generated likeness of the civil rights leader on one of her singles.
The family made it out like Minaj practically danced on their father's grave by accompanying one of her songs with his image (via Inquirer):
"Ms. Minaj's artwork for her single does not depict the truth of Malcolm X's legacy. Situations like the recent portrayal of our father on the [single] cover for Ms. Minaj's new single only highlight the fact that we as a society need to take more responsibility for what we're teaching our children."
The very next day Nicki issused an official "I'm sorry" for offending the X clan with her art (via Inquirer):
"I apologize to the Malcolm X estate if the meaning of the photo was misconstrued ... I have nothing but respect (and) adoration for us."
But in her latest jam "Chi-raq," Minaj has switched up her tune a little bit, suggesting that perhaps Ilyasah Shabazz was acting like an A-hole by making a mountain out of a mole hill, in the first place (via Inquirer):
"Malcolm X's daughter came at me. These n----s I roll with don't let a single thing get by...broke b----es that talk sh-t."
Not exactly poetry, but it's really hard to rhyme things with "X."
