NickiBillboardCover1 Nick Minaj On Cover Of Billboard Magazine

In advance of her “Pink Friday” album release next week, Nicki Minaj lands the cover of Billboard magazine. She’s been interviewed a ton recently so a lot in the article is just not new, but we do get  fresh details on Minaj being kicked out of Lil Wayne’s crew after she dropped out of the second half of his “I Am Music” tour in 2009. She says, ”I started to record by myself and I lost track of what I was doing and who I wanted to be. It wasn’t until I linked back up with Wayne that he gave me this speech. He said, ‘What happened? You were hot,’ and it just hurt me so much. I wanted to prove to him that I was still hot. It hurt my ego so bad that I went back with a vengeance.” Another image from the article and a Billboard video interview on the next page, in which she talks about early morning being her most productive time.

  2. Kisses and love and blessings to Miss Nicki! I’m excited about her album and I must say that I have not been too excited about any lady artist in quite a long time. I LOVE her she’s a flippin Beast!!!!

  3. agree 100%

    I heard the composition of snippets from Pink Friday, and I was so dissapointed! I miss the mixtape Nicki, “Sucka Free” and “Beam Me Up Scotty” Nicki…Her music is too Pop and commercial now :(

  5. I hear you, but truthfully mainstream rap is pop….and if her goal is to sell records, she’s has to have catchy tunes, and she does toss the heads a bone with “Roman’s Revenge.”

  6. TanaBoo:

    @ Isakany

    So you feel as though actually rapping and being a true hip hop artist cannot be catchy? Because if so, i disagree. We’ve seen throughout the history of female rap that you can rap and still not compromise whether your music is catchy or not; Eve, Kim, ect.

    Her music now abandons her original essence, which obviously was working because it gained her the notoriety that she has now. Her features are fire! But mainly because she gives you that old mixtape Nicki…see where im going? haha, i know its not just me…

  7. Well, I don’t know her as well as you….I haven’t heard a lot of the mix tapes. I know her best in her current incarnation. My perspective is that she is a talented women and I’m always so inspired to see people (and especially women) who come from such challenging backgrounds overcome it all and become such a big success because it is a very rare and special accomplishment. Her persona combined with her music is compelling to me. That being said, I could see being let down if I knew her as entering the game one way and she seemed to take a complete 180-degree turn. That would bother me also. So I have to go do my homework on her mix tapes and see if I agree with you.

    Also, I don’t think you can compare her to her predecessors….I know it’s easy to do because there are so few women in rap, but she’s of a different generation and is informed by a culture that has changed quite a bit since the days the great ladies you mentioned were at their height.

    But still, the music was in general harder back then….yes it still moved and was catchy but the streets that produced that music have changed to something not worse or better but still very different.

  8. TanaBoo:

    i love rationalizing ideas with people like you. Isakany, you make a lot of true points. When it comes down to it, no one should ever try or will they ever be able to please everyone, and it is amazing that with her new endeavors she has such a following.

    I was not comparing her to her predecessors, because i to believe that music trends evolve over time. I was using them as an example to demonstrate the idea that you do not have to abandoned the entire genre of your music in order to produce Pop(ular), catchy music.

    Im just sad that there is no one left for the people like me :(
    Yes its rare we get talented, strong women in the hip hop industry, With Minaj, there WAS hope.

    Like Jay-Z says, “we lost one”.
