Kanye West: Nicki Minaj Has Potential to Be #2 Rapper of All Time

Kanye West and Nicki Minaj

Kanye West is giving Nicki Minaj a major co-sign. The rapper says Young Money’s First Lady has the potential to be one of the greatest rappers of all time.

“The scariest artist in the game right now… The scariest artist is definitely Nicki Minaj,” Kanye told Angie Martinez on Hot 97. “And I think she has the most potential out of everyone to be the #2 rapper of all time ’cause nobody’s gonna be bigger than Eminem. Eminem’s the #1 rapper of all time.”

Kanye confirmed that Minaj is featured on his fifth album, as Rap-Up.com first reported. The disc is due November 16.

Who are the other potential threats? “I love Wayne, I love Cudi, I love Jay… They scare me too,” he revealed. “And yo Drake, you gotta give Drake credit too. Drake is scary also.”

    Woah, that’s a big thing to say about someone. This chick hasn’t even put out her album and she’s getting mad props from some of the top people in the game.

    I wouldn’t say she will be the #2 rapper of all time but she definitely has the potential to be the best female rapper because of her versatility.

    LMAO, yeah, okay, because that’ll happen…

    ANYONE who thinks this overrated plastic piece of crap will be more highly regarded than rakim, biggie, nas, krs-one, lauryn hill, bun b, big daddy kane, chuck d, ice cube, redman, common, andre 3000, mos def, pharoahe monch, mc lyte, queen latifah, etc. seriously does not know hip hop.

    stop listening to the radio and realize there’s more to the art form than baby voices, cartoon imagery, and “i’ll make my pvssy sit on your sideburns” or whatever the heck she said.

    i hope he’s not serious and he only wanted attention, because if he is…smh

    I think Nicki is capable of building an empire. She might play “stupid” but she plays it all the way to the bank. She’s been known to be involved in all of her business deals; she also has vesatility.

  14. Kyle

    I think all these big rappers should reserve these thoughts until she even drops her debut album. I mean, they could be right but what if she drops her album and it sucks? Nicki sure does have a lot of pressure riding on her shoulders.

    Please she could never get there, just like Drake way to much hype and not enough evidence.

    i think people who have actually worked with nicki or no nicki really understand her true potianal and hw talented she is and i think kanye is not playin when her said this listen to the audio but i bet all these ppl giving nicki these big time cosigns puts a lot more persurre on her than other artist ..thats a huge complientment coming from kanye any way cant wait for her abulm

    [Reply]

  23. poppa

    Im sorry but kanyes comment is just not true, Missy elliot tears up the game even now and west thinks ahe got potential to surpass her? Are u crazy? , and please eminems good but not the best he hasnt changed the way people have rapped, People like Snoop, or Dr Dre… Ice Cube deserve such praise and their music can easily back this up… I mean these guys created a whole genre and kanye thinks nicki and eminem can surpass these… Please stop

    Wow I’m a kanye fan & he is fuckin up!
    not trying to bring down any nicki or drake fan but nicki’s rhymes are elementary & she dot have the potential to be the #2 best rapper. Come on there are better female rappers than (Mc Lyte, Lauryn Hill, Da Brat, Lil Kim, Focy Brown, Eve, Trina, Remy Ma, BWA, Queen Latifa, Keys ect.) & drake’s album was pure R&B Bullshit!

    You didn’t even include Lupe in the conversation

    No Pac or Nas??????? WTF is wrong with you…i just lost a lot of respect, but Ill still probably cop the album

    Nicki Minaj wont even be the best Female rapper of all time…nowhere near it

    I cannot believe he said this…honestly, this is just a disgrace to hip hop

    @ Cherryfalls: you said that Em doesn’t appeal to enough people??? I guess that explains why he sold 700k first week in this economy…I guess that explains why he is the 2nd best selling rapper of all time…He appeals to everyone…fuckin retard…come on, get your head out of Drakes ass

    To all the people disrespecting the Queens that paved the way for a Nicki Minaj, you should be ashamed of yourself…’Til this day I don’t think anyone has surpassed Latifah, Lauryn or Jean Grae. I can respect Kanye’s opinion (whether I agree or not…I like Nicki’s old flow before she went all Barbie and plastic) but how can you be a hiphop head and sh*t on the founders smh…that’s some ignorant sh*t!!! Respect the Queens that paved the way for a Nicki & know she has potential but its because she can do more than that ABC crap she is putting out now! Smh

  56. Steve

    I don’t agree wit ppl dissing the other Ladies that have paved the way but I do like Kanye Co-signing her. She’s gotten co-signs from (Of course) Lil Wayne, Jay-Z, Kanye, Jadakiss, Faboulous, Missy Elliot, Eve, Remy Ma, Queen Latifah and Trina (just to say the least) And all of them really ARE Lyricist so I think at this point she doesn’t have to really care about or respond to what haters say if all of those rappers really are into her. Kudos to Nicki and her “ABC” “Bubblegum” raps, lol.

    Kanye at least got one thing right: Eminem is the best rapper of all time.

    [Reply]

  60. menace

    Yo g eminem (80 million and some change) is the #1* best selling rapper of all time. Yes he’s above tupac in sales. Also, lets get one thing straight, kanye said nicki has the potential to be the #2 best rapper of all time PERIOD. This includes males and females. Y ya think he said eminem #1??? Cuz he’s talking about males and females. So y is everyone comparing nicki to female mc’s? His comment concerns male and female rappers so I think we can all agree that biggie is better than nicki and forever will be. so this means nicki will never ever ever ever ever b #2. Eveeeer not even in another fu*king universe. Also andre, ice cube, tupac, t.I, jay-z, nas, krs1, lil kim, and many many many many moooore are all better than nicki will ever b. Kanye get the f*ck off that crack or watever ur on. Stop saying ur stupid retarted random comments. I just lost a bunch of fu*king respect for u. Wen I read this comment I felt like deleting all his damn songs from my ipod. Time to put this pus*y on ur sideburns. (Wtf does that mean???!!) one of u nicki fans explain that 2 me. I haven’t heard a more retarted artist since wayne.

    nov 23 _ pink friday… is hayday dats wen all dese cosigns will matter or not.
    im gonna support because i really believe shes causing a huge movement in the game.
    every few years the industry changes it happened in the 1990 with pac and big and kim.
    and its happening again with nicki b.o.b and drake. etc.

    i think nicki is good but not great and she got a long ways to go just like kanye said and em i believe to be the biggest rapper of all time and one of greatest but not of all time cause you got to think about his chorus and hooks are what ppl think about not verse lyrics(except for 8 mile cause they were sweet)

    She has to stay relevant first and that barbie movement will get tired soon especially since she’s not that young in the first place. As far as the topic, she might do have the potential.

    [Reply]

  93. Taybee(Ranoey)

    Guys, i listened to this interview and apparently rap up left out one important key point. Kanye said shes going to be big not just because of her lyrics, but because of her whole entire package, just like eminem. Her appeal, her lyrics, sales and etc. And i can see where’s hes coming from. What other rapper is being talked about so much in the media besides her? Which one’s album is as highly anticipated as nicki’s? I agree with kanye, she has the potential, can she do it? We will see. I must say though, if I were kanye I would be scared too, because not only do we have a female rap artist who delivers, but one who hasn’t even proved to the world that she can deliver. People base her talent off of her verses, saying she has no meaning… first off how much meaning can you put into a song that isn’t yours? And I think her verses do have meaning, not deep hardcore stuff but simple funny meanings.. I think she does have the potential, and I am quite proud of her.

    [Reply]

  94. NYdiamond

    Again as I read…can someone tell me when the art of being a true lyricist became about money & potential sales? Is that what makes you the best with hiphop fans now? Maybe its my fault for growing up during the time of emcees and not rappers that this saddens me…you can be the best at what you do for the year or sales but the title of ‘greatest of all time’ should be harder to obtain from an art form by the people who didn’t have media on their side when it first was created! Maybe we believe this commercial stuff too much…no one defended Nicki’s artistry (which I do believe she has with her ability to switch up flows) Whether I like all her lyrics or not, I can respect her for going in a male dominated industry holding her own. Everyone will always be entitled to their opinion but at least back it up with some proof …maybe some die hard Nicki fans can explain what they see in her past the image (being pretty, animated, using sexy lyrics,sales and fashion) that gives her the chance to the crown?! I would say her verse in Khaled’s remix made me take notice…

    People have to accept that hip-hop is changing. Back in the 90s it was not as popular as it is now, so rappers are getting more publicity. I like the direction hip-hop is going, and I believe that nicki is doing a great job. I mean i really hate it when people say hip-hop is dead when theres drake, eminem, jay-z, kanye, kid cudi and more great rappers making dope music. And there’s even new rappers being recognized like J-cole, and nicki.. wiz khalifa, people just need to open their minds and put the 90s behind them because its not going to come back.

    Here do some research on her and tell me that there is only ‘one’ female emcee who needs to be in the game (sorry but I think she is better than most male emcees too)-http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jFz6ECvaiqQ

    Kanye, Kanye…. I am shaking at you right now.
    Your respect just lowered because of your statement.

    How in the world is Nicki going to be #2? Don’t fool yourself, boy, you know you are lying through your teeth. Nicki has nothing to make her the best anything. She has yet to release an album and she’s being coined the best female rapper alive? People make me laugh. How is she going to beat Lauryn Hill? It was already insulting that Nicki compared herself to her, but to say she’s going to be better than Lauryn? Kanye, I don’t know what you’re smoking, but you need to quit. I don’t know what potential people see in her. She’s a carbon copy of Kim. Jacking her style and everything. How are you expected to make it in the game when you jacking someone else’s shit? She is just a marketable female rapper that will be gone in no time. There are much better female rappers than her.

    Even Eve recognizes she’s copying Kim. youtube.com/watch?v=ZeaKZZ1uNj8.

    Let’s not say she’s the best anything when she has yet to prove it.

    Kanye, you better stick to defending Beyonce and making Taylor Swift cry instead of exaggerating about some no talent, plastic, needs a psych ward girl.
