The “Starships” rapper shares her passion for discovering new talent and explains her rise from the underground mixtape scene to becoming a worldwide superstar.

“I’ve been told no a billion times and I think it’s very important you have someone that knows what it’s like to be disappointed and have to try again, and that’s a big part of the audition process,” said Nicki.
