Nicki Minaj Says We Have Lil Wayne To Thank For Making Her A Winner

- By Bossip Staff

If you’re pissed your kids have signed up for hooker training courtesy of one Onika Maraj aka Nicki Minaj, blame that shizz on Mariah Carey and Weezy F. Baby! XXL Magazine just leaked an excerpt from their May cover story on Nicki Minaj, and just like Suspect Drake, Nicki Lewinsky is all about showing love to President Carter! Pop the hood for words and photos from this half naked broad.

Asked to pinpoint the moment when she realized things were “coming together” for her, Nicki said she knew she was headed for the mainstream once Mariah Carey came calling:

I definitely think that, when I shot the [“Up Out My Face”] video with Mariah Carey, I started feeling like, Wait a minute, this is not something I really ever envisioned for my life just nine months before that.

We’ll admit, that was a very scary moment for us as well watching those two dizzy b*tches attention whore together…

But what’s even scarier is that, while even a blind man can see Nicki’s been following the Lil’ Kim formula from Day 1, this broad actually thinks she’s doing something out the box!!! Nicki claims it took watching Wayne “dare to be different” that allowed her to just be herself:

“I just kinda do what I feel. I never knew what lane I would fill, [or that] I would fill a lane at all. I didn’t even really contemplate that far down the road. I just started having fun, and a lot of that came from me seeing Wayne dare to be different, and I started feeling like I can be a multifaceted rapper. I don’t have to be a one-dimensional female rapper. Once I put that in perspective, it was like everything just got easier for me, because I no longer wanted to fit in anybody’s box—I just wanted to be Nicki…

Clearly there’s an opening, because females in hip-hop come so far and few between, but the winners make an open lane out of a closed lane. The winners just say, “I am,” and it happens, and they don’t do a lot of thinking and guessing and planning about what they can do—they just do it. And that’s kinda like how I am.”

Hmmm that’s funny that says she just wanted to be Nicki, cuz we’ve seen the real Nicki BEFORE the crazy wigs and weaves, before the “physical enhancements” and the spasms and facial tics and we have to say, we don’t even recognize her. But whatever it takes to be a winner… we guess.

    she makes a better model than rapper. maybe she should reconsider her career path.

  • Getem

    Mark my words people,this chick is on drugs. I think she snorts, or injects. But I really believe she’s on something and I’m not saying that to be funny.

  • WhatAworld


    Standing Ovation in here for that comment!

    It isn’t hate because she left her talent when she signed that “YM” contract.I used to be a big fan of Nicki’s music when she was unsigned,Because she did her own thing,but now she’s a negative gimmick and utter TRASH and I can not get with whatever she’s releasing!

  • Nisey

    You guys are really haters, extremely. The writers have no right to say the things that they say. I am really sick and tired of all of this hate directed towards Nicki. LEAVE NICKI ALONE!
