Nicki Minaj Looks to Kanye West, Swizz Beatz for Debut Album

Nicki Minaj and Kanye West

Her first single “Massive Attack” is not the only bomb Nicki Minaj is about to drop. The lyrical assassin is loading up on some of hip-hop’s biggest names for her dangerous debut.

Young Money’s First Lady exclusively tells Rap-Up.com that one of her weapons of mass destruction is Kanye West. “I’m probably definitely going to work with Kanye,” she reveals.

She also spilled the names of other beatmakers who may grace the as-yet-untitled album. “On my debut, I worked with Sean Garrett. And probably Swizz Beatz, he’s gonna send me something.”

But it won’t only be familiar names. “I like to work with unknown producers as well, so I accept beats from everybody.”

Garrett, who is featured on and produced Minaj’s “explosive” lead single, recently told Rap-Up.com that he has contributed additional tracks. “She just wants to make it as huge as possible,” he said of the project.

The head Barbie’s first order of business is shooting a video for “Massive Attack” as well as Garrett’s first single “Get It All,” the latter of which will be directed by Gil Green.

    I guess if you don’t want to gold and aim for platinum you have to enlist the heavy hitters. I hope she don’t flop like Keri Hilson, who had everybody on d!€K only to give em gonerhia aka crap. I just hope she drops that dumb accent she does, I can’t take her serious cause it seems like she’s just playing around, but she was good on My Chick Bad.

    In Reallity she sucks. was good before all the “Barbie”

    Not lyrical at all, like 90% of young money.
