Nicki Minaj Talks Drake, Valentine’s Day, & ‘The Pink Print’

Nicki Minaj

In the wake of her cover art controversy, Nicki Minaj called in to Hot 97′s Angie Martinez to address the Malcolm X artwork for “Lookin’ Ass Ni**a.” She also revealed that she and Drake are in a “great space” as is the entire Young Money, whose compilation Rise of an Empire drops March 11.

“I think the whole team collectively just feels so together right now. We all kinda just wanna win,” said Nicki.

She also confirmed reports that Drake and Lil Wayne are working on Tha Carter V. “We just workin’, no bad blood, no bad vibes at all,” she said.

Nicki herself has been in the studio recording her third album The Pink Print, but she does not have a release date and won’t be setting one. “You’ll never know when it’s coming until it just comes,” she revealed.

And fellas, be on the look out for a sexy Valentine’s Day surprise from the head Barb.

On Drake and Young Money: “Drake and I are great. That’s my baby. Drake is the one that told me to get on ‘Danny Glover.’ He told me to get on that and Safaree SB told me to get on ‘Boss Ass Bitch.’ ‘Cause I was in album mode, so they both were just comin’ at me like, ‘You’re gonna have to get on that,’ and I just happened to do it. But Drake and I are great. We are in a great space. I think the whole team collectively just feels so together right now. We all kinda just wanna win. Wayne’s about to put out his album and I know Drake’s been in the studio with him. We just workin’, no bad blood, no bad vibes at all.”

On her Valentine’s Day plans: “I was thinking about buying some real sexy stuff and taking some pictures. I was gonna do like the picture I did for Halloween. I was gonna do a new picture like in the red version, but I don’t know. It would be nice if I got some candy, but I don’t know.”

On her new album:The Pink Print is not gonna have a release date. You’ll never know when it’s coming until it just comes.”

On whether she’s going to pull a Beyoncé and release it without notice: “No, no. I’m not. Not all the way. Just meaning in terms of a release date, I won’t set a release date until the album is really done and I’ve lived with it for a long time. I’m not gonna pull a Bey, but I’m just gonna chill for a second and see how it goes.”

    Bye, Nicki. Her time is up. She has always had a stank ass attitude and is just a complete rip off of actual rap royalty. Hopefully the next wave of rappers will be original and not have this bitch’s snake in the grass ways.

    She not pulling a Bey, we all know she’s working on the album. With Bey no one new shit. All she saying is she not doing all the promo leading up to it. She will say the date when the album is ready.

    I remember that when the Queen wasn’t doing anything, y’all hoes were speechless. Soon as Nicki released something, every hater scum on Earth suddenly appears. Haha I bet y’all felt lonely this past months.

    I would love to see Nicki Lewinski pull a bey
    and see how devoted her ‘Barbs’ are?
    and see how well her standing ground is in the music industry as a leading female rapper in a male dominated game.

    I’ll be Lookin’ (Ass N**a) for The Pink Print.
