Nicki Minaj Didn’t Charge Big Sean for ‘Dance (A$$)’ Remix Verse

Big Sean and Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj may command a hefty price tag for her coveted features, but she still comes through for her friends. The Young Money diva didn’t charge Big Sean a dime to appear on his remix to “Dance (A$$).”

The G.O.O.D. Music MC wasn’t deterred from reaching out to the in-demand raptress despite hesitation from his crew. “I was like, ‘What about Nicki Minaj?’ and they was like, ‘Man, Nicki gon’ charge too much.’ I was like, ‘Did anybody even ask her?’ So I text her and was like, ‘Yo, you want to do this?’ She text me back like, ‘Hell yeah, send it over,’” he told Baltimore’s 92Q Jams. “She didn’t charge nothing. She completely did it for free and all for the love.”

The gesture is a testament to her kindness. “I don’t know if people know Nicki, but she’s one of the nicest people in this rap game,” he said. “She is definitely just a hard worker, so it was great working with her.”

A video for the remix is also on the way. “We just shot the video for it, me and Nicki. We about to wrap that up.”

    @WonderLand19, This Nicki Minaj chick needs to understand she’s not all that. We expect the same shit from her all-day everyday – she gets no respect from me because she acts like she’s a m’fucking goddess! No Bitch – You ain’t shit!

    >>>>This is understandable.. cause she knows how she was being a new artist…It’s not the fact BIG JEAN didnt have the money to pay her…Nicki charges normally 100k …Big Jean last single went GOLD and over. so that alone he made 3 times round 300 to 400k for that track. plus Kanye paid bout a mill for signing him… and all his apprences adds up.. So Ill say ruffly bout 2.3 mill….he has.. now NICKI might didnt charge him.. but she’s on a song. thats already an HIT RECORD.. meaning she and him.. plus the label will split the Royaltys… So if the single goes GOLD.. she’ll get 100k or 200k from it… plus all the added ft apprences with him on a show. She’ll get another 15k to 20k for that…
