Nicki Minaj Talks Arena Tour, Hints at ‘Big Surprise’

Nicki Minaj is currently touring across the globe, but it’s only a teaser of what’s to come. The Young Money rapper will launch the “Pink Friday Reloaded” arena tour in the fall, which will feature some supporting acts.

“I can’t wait to blow the stage out bigger and better and crazier,” she told KISS FM after her show at Hammersmith Apollo in London. “I promise you this is gonna be one for the books.”

Growing up, Nicki was a big fan of Foxy Brown. “I really loved her as a female rapper. I was really interested in her mind and her aura,” she said, while also sharing her love for another New York rapper. “I was really, really into Jay-Z. Me and my friends in high school, we were reciting all of the Jay lyrics. His words were our words in our conversations all the time.”

She also teased her Barbz with exciting news. “I have a big, big surprise for them in November and of course I’m not gonna tell them,” she said. “They’re gonna love it. It’s gonna be nice.”
