Nicki Minaj has called out The Recording Academy for switching her hit “Super Freaky Girl”

Despite "Super Freaky Girl" spending its ninth week at the top of the Billboard Hot Rap Songs chart, The Hollywood Reporter announced the Grammys change-up.
The Trinidadian celebrity commented on the circumstance in a number of tweets before delving even farther in a 17-minute rage shared on social media.
We learned today that Super Freaky Girl's Grammy entry was taken out of the rap category.
