July 3rd 2022
Fugees fans worldwide rejoiced in September 2021 when Wyclef Jean, Lauryn Hill and Pras announced they were hitting the road for a reunion tour to commemorate the 25th anniversary of their Grammy Award-winning sophomore album The Score. But after just one performance in New York City, the celebrated Hip Hop trio was forced to pull the plug and unable to move forward with the remaining international dates, citing issues stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Nicki Minaj headlined day one of the 2022 Essence Festival on Friday (July 1) and while thousands of her Barbz were upset her performance wasn’t available for live stream on Hulu, the New York rapper still found a way to create a moment for fans to talk about.
After her set was delayed for 45 minutes, Minaj hit the stage, performing her Lil Baby-assisted single “Do We Have A Problem” before launching into fan favorites such as “We Go Up,” “Did It On ’em,” and “Beez in the Trap.” However, after her DJ cued up “Monster,” the 2010 Kanye West single where many fans believe she delivered her best guest feature, Minaj stopped the show.
“A monster though!” Minaj began. “A monster though! But we don’t fuck with clowns.”
