Nicki Minaj Creates a ‘Masterpiece’ with Swizz Beatz for Debut Album

Nicki Minaj and Swizz Beatz

While Nicki Minaj’s debut album is still a work in progress, the rap diva is spilling details on one track she did with Swizz Beatz that will definitely make the cut.

The Young Money femcee and super-producer have been in the lab cooking up hits for her project, which is due later this year. Swizz put in the call to make it happen. “He definitely expressed interest in an interview one time,” Nicki told Hot 93.7′s Jenny Boom Boom. “I was excited because I was like, ‘Swizz Beatz, I love his style.’ And as a matter of fact, we got some shit.”

She spoke about one record that she’s particularly excited about. “It’s one song called ‘Catch Me’ that will definitely make the album and it’s a masterpiece from me and Swizz. It’s a little singing, a little rapping, but it’s like a different vibe. It’s a moody vibe. It’s just dope. And the beat sounds really futuristic, but it’s mellow futuristic. It puts you in this weird…like you’re high type shit, even though I don’t get high and I never have.”

As for her current single “Your Love,” Nicki was apprehensive about releasing it until she saw the reaction after it leaked. “That was a leak and I was so upset they put it out ’cause I recorded that song like two years ago,” she said. “Next thing you know, people started falling in love with it.”

    I love Nicki Minaj. I can’t wait till the album comes out. She got me all anxious waiting to hear this “Catch Me” song as well as what else she’s got. & “Your Love” is whats poppin right now too. Nicki is such a talent. There’s her singing, rapping, writing, & acting. Folks need to stop drinking that hater juice and let Nicki rock. Your negativety isn’t gonna stop her.

    “If you could you would get rid of me. Fuck you gone do when a bitch try to go hard? But I won’t let you get to me. You should already figure I’ma go hard. If you was as real as me you would never let another girl sit in your throne. I done put the choke hold on now they screamin, “Nicki leave me alone”" – Nicki Minaj

    Ahhhhhhhhhh so damn excited for this album!

    And the only reason Lil Kim is calling out Nicki right now is because she’s trying to get her name in headlines before her new music drops. Now everyone is anticipating what Lil Kim is gonna drop and if it’s gonna be hotter than what Nicki drops. Common marketing strategy and you’re a fool if you cant see it.

    Lil Kims Career is done. What Label is Lil Kim even signed to? The only reason Lil kim is mad is cause Nicki Minaj is takin over the female rap game and its gonna be hard for Lil Kim to come back and be relevant again. Lil Kim is weak for takin shots at someone who payed homage to her. Nicki just got more motivation to put out a better album. Nicki is most likely gonna be the first female to debut with the highest record sales in history. Laugh now, cry later.

    Come on Nicki, you see what “futuristic” did with Massive Attack.

    Stick to the Barbie persona with “Your Love”, and it’ll translate into sales and chart numbers.

    @ thatisall
    u hit the nail where it’s at at. little kim made her comback when she was released from prison. for the past 3 years nobody knew what the fuck she was doing instead of the fact she was still making money off her butchered up plastic face. Nicki is chaning things right now and it’s only gonna be a matter of time before she starts to be IRRELEVANT.

    I think Nick’s learned from Massiva Attack. This album is bound to be good.

    Do you thing Nicki and keep your head up. Dont worry about a “real” 40 year old woman dissing you.

    @ Adam THANK YOU!!! Nicki Minaj was the first to make a million off a mixtape do u really think she cares what Lil Kim Says? In the words of Nicki Minaj “WHEN YOUR GETTING MONEY YOU DONT HAVE A CARE”. Lil Kim can keep talking ish all she wants but Nicki too focused on her money, she dont got time for that stupid BS. Funny how Lil Kim just jumped on the Twitter bandwagon and is tweeting Nicki trash but Nicki dont respond, CAUSE SHE DONT HAVE TIME, SHE GETTING PAID. Oh and if u go to Lil Kims twitter she been talking ish to Diddy all day. Kim is obviously mad now cause Puffy working and managing Nicki.

    all this nicki and kimmy thing has to stop …obviously lil kim is the best why i say that because everytime a female rapper comes out lil kim name pops up……so if she is so wack why do y’all keep talking about the queeen bee….ps nicki only made money off her mix tapes because she copied kim lyrics and rewrote them into her own…this is how good kims album is….u could make remixes from it…ps a kim fan would know that.nicki is a copy cat

    [Reply]

  42. Lil CiCi

    @ ponyo
    if lil kim is the best then how come she hasn’t released an album in the last three years. now another female rapper like nicki is shutting things down and little kim is mad because Nicki doing it BIG. Nicki ain’t worried about her she’s focused and she’s grinding to reach it to the top. I’. slowly becoming a fan because she’s not like all the other female rappers. No disresepect to the ones that paved the wave for her (including little kim) but as u DELUSIONAL and IGNORANT like the rest of her fans you are threatned by Nicki just as much kim is. If kim was the best she wouldn’t be putting herself in a situation by dissing Nicki just to keep her name out there. kim fell off she better get her shit together and stop spending money sabotaging her face.

    Queen B has had her time, music has changed, Nicki Minaj is now regarded as the best female rapper in the game. I mean, do we know that Kim still has it? No. But Nicki seems to be killing any song she’s on, so we have to give it to Nicki.

    But regarding this article, my expectations have been raised again…

    Amazed how everyone is taking up for Nicki. You are a blogger. As Cease said ” They See Things Different”..

    Where were all the bloggers when Nicki was coming at Lil Mama.. Amazing how she killed Lil Mama in 2.3 Seconds Yet She hasn’t responded to Keys, Lil Kim, Foxy Etc.

    Nicki should keep the “Barbie” gimmick because She doesn’t want to play with the ” Big Girls”
