A new Netflix docuseries celebrating female emcees is set to be released later this year, but some have noticed that one of the most prominent female artists of today’s generation has not been featured.

Ladies First: A Story of Women in Hip-Hop features some of the world’s greatest female rappers, including Queen Latifah, Cardi B and Da Brat, but does not include Nicki Minaj, which has left some fans wondering why.

While it remains unclear whether Nicki will appear in the documentary, according to the trailer, it doesn’t seem so, some suggest.

Some speculate it could be that the 40-year-old Queens native is on the docuseries but wasn’t featured in the trailer, while others think she may not be on it because of scheduling issues or her declining to be featured.

Either way, fans took to Twitter to share their sentiments about Nicki not appearing in the trailer.

“Imagine doing the ‘Story of Women in Hip-Hop’ and not including Lil Kim, Foxy Brown and Nicki Minaj. Does that even make sense?” one user questioned.

Another wrote: “You have to acknowledge Nicki Minaj when it comes to Women in hip-hop. This disrespect to her legacy is exactly why Barbz go so hard. Nicki Minaj has had a longer and more successful career than any of these women ya’ll shown and has done more for MUSIC in general as well.”

Other hip-hop icons were missing from the trailer as well, including Lauryn Hill and Missy Elliott, but features Ice Spice, thus raising eyebrows.

“She most likely declined but yeah they could’ve included her someway,” one user shared.

In June, Shine My Crown reported that the Red Ruby Da Sleeze star’s neighbors filed a petition to have her removed from her Hidden Hills home…thanks to her husband Kenneth Petty.

Word on the street is her neighbors got wind of Petty being registered as a sex offender in the state of New York. When the convicted felon changed his address to his new Los Angeles home, a neighbor thought it was necessary to file a petition entitled “Say No to Sex Offenders in Hidden Hills.” The document cites concerns over property value and safety, and at the time of this writing, more than 1,500 people have signed the petition, which has set a goal to receive 2,500 signatures.

When the mother of one and her husband first moved to California, Petty was punished for failing to register as a sex offender in California and was subsequently ordered to serve one year in home detention.

Neither Nicki nor Petty has responded to the petition.
