Nicki went to Instagram Tuesday (October 24) to reflect on the role she played in getting JAY-Z on Kanye West‘s classic record.
7 year anniversary of #Monster Kanye called me to tell me Jay put a verse on this song & that he was still deciding if he would put it on his album. Haha. It was like an hour long call where I tried to convince him to let the song stay on his album. He felt this verse would end up being the talk of the album. I said: YOU’RE KANYE WEST!!!! I became the first female rapper to perform @ Yankee Stadium on the JAY/Eminem stadium tour. When I saw him, Jay said: “when u got so nice”? I said: “I been nice”! Ha! Kanye, thank you for being the genius you are. You always put others first. I fought u every step of the way but it worked out. (He wanted me to add more of that growling monster voice and I felt it was over kill.) He wouldn’t give in. In the end, maybe he was right. Ha! – this song featured Barbie and Roman. Chyna was my stunt double in the video. (Due to her ASSets). Amber had spoken highly of me to Ye n pushed for him to meet with me. The rest is history. Ye, Jay, Em…All 3 of them helped me in some way. Love
Recently, Minaj reflected on her and Big Sean‘s “Dance” music video.
A moment. Flow. Flows. Delivery. 6 years ago. One day I got off the plane in Hawaii n a cpl dudes were walking behind me yelling "yo nicki, yo nicki!!! wakikiiiiiiiiiiiii". Lol. I was like huh??? Then I realized. I was in the island of wakikiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii
Last month, Nicki hinted at having an album release date.
In mid-August, Nicki promised the untitled LP would dethrone her previous work.
