However, only some people are thrilled about the upcoming series. Some fans have voiced their concerns over the notable absence of iconic rapper Nicki Minaj from the lineup stating, “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.” 

Another user defended Minaj, stating, “You cannot have a show, conversation, or story about female hip hop without Nicki Minaj.. not under any circumstance. Anytime after 2010, she has to be apart of the discussion or you’re wasting everybody’s time. Seriously.” 

Fans won’t have to wait much longer to dive into the series, as it is scheduled to premiere on Netflix for streaming on August 9.
