101.1 The Wiz Featured Video


Nicki Minaj is virtually everywhere these days. She’s hopping on remixes, just released her new single entitled “Anaconda” and is preparing to drop her new album, The Pink Print.

Here she graces the cover of FADER’s August/September 2014 issue.

In the cover story she discusses the album’s current features and producers. Ester Dean, Detail, Dr. Luke, Boi-1da are all in the mix. Nicki hopes to lock down Rihanna and Drake features, but says her Young Money label mate is “unpredictable.”


She also discusses becoming more mature, her love for Lauryn Hill and the need for female rappers to be confidant enough to express their true feelings through their lyrics.

“I think early on in my career, I was… I was… just a little bit crazy,” she says, lightly smacking her chewing gum. “I took everything personally. That’s just not good, and it’s not healthy.” These days, she works hard to keep herself in check. “I think one of my best attributes now, as a businesswoman and an artist and a professional person, is being able to think before I speak,” she adds. “I’ve learned that everything I think doesn’t necessarily need to be stated.”
