Nicki Minaj Talks ‘Mixtape Nicki,’ Babies, & Biggest Fear in Complex

Nicki Minaj

As she gears up for The Pinkprint, Nicki Minaj has been gracing the pages of various magazines. Following Billboard, GQ, and V Magazine, the rap queen covers Complex.

She towers above a building in red heels and a black bob on the cover and shows off her impressive body of work while posing against various architectural backdrops.

In the interview, Nicki opens up about returning to her roots, her friendship with Drake, and her plans to start a family after her fifth album.

“I have to put out all six of my albums, contractually,” she said. “After the fifth, I’ll probably have my baby. I wonder if I’m going to be one of those women who balances my child with a career. I always said, ‘When I have my baby, it’s going to be all about my baby.’ I don’t want the child feeling like they don’t have all of my attention, so I always said, ‘I’m going to take a little break.’ But we’ll see.”

But before she puts down the mic, she will release her most personal album yet, The Pinkprint, on December 15. “The album is a dope balance of vulnerability and strength, of inspiration and of not being politically correct,” she said. “It’s the best of both worlds. It’s tapping into both sides.”
