Nevermind Friday the 13th, are you guys prepared for Nicki Minaj debut album Pink Friday? After years old being featured on other artists songs, being the only female rapper that’s relevant and releasing a successful mixtape, Nicki is stepping out on her own, and showing the world that’s she’s more than a Young Money Barbie.
On November 23rd, Nicki will be dropping her debut album Pink Friday. Nicki recently spoke withV103’s in Atlanta DJ Greg Street about how important it is for her album to succeed, and hopes that it will encourage more ladies to pick up the mic.
“They won’t look to sign other female rappers because they’ll say, ‘Her buzz was so crazy and if she couldn’t do it, then no one can do it.’ And I don’t want that to happen, so I’m doing this as well for all the girls. I hope that with the success of the album—because I know it will be successful, I believe it will be successful—I hope that this opens doors for all of the girls everywhere.”-Nicki Minaj

Nicki was scared to be a solo artist after people warned her that female rap is over and labels wouldn’t invest in them.
“Even as far as I’ve come right now, it’s a testament in my mind,” she said. “So I hope the female rappers will understand how big it is, just for our culture, that the album does well.”-Nicki Minaj
Nicki felt that Lil Wayne didn’t deserve to go to jail and speak on her Young Money family.
“He didn’t deserve to go in the first place, and it’s kind of crazy how much of a void it’s been without him.We really didn’t realize that Wayne is the glue that holds Young Money and Cash Money together, I feel, so I’m just very thankful that he’s finally coming home.”-Nick Minaj
Nicki Minaj debut album is scheduled to hit stores and iTunes on November 23rd.
