Nicki Minaj took to Instagram to comment on the top 10 rap songs on the U.S. iTunes chart. She pointed out the fact that it’s “a great time to be a white rapper, huh?” And well, she’s right. At the time of her post, Post Malone, G-Eazy, Machine Gun Kelly, Eminem and Macklemore had the majority of the top 10 covered.

Despite the inevitable backlash Nicki received, she isn’t being petty. She’s commenting on a very real truth about the politics of the music industry, and how race relates to the branding and marketing of music.
