Her New Album Is In Stores Now: Nick Minaj’s Exclusive Interview With DJ Clue

International rap superstar Nicki Minaj is back in the states. Last night Monday (April 2), Minaj returned back home. While in NYC, she stopped by DJ Clue’s show on Power 105.1. During her on-air interview, the Queens native spoke about the Superbowl, sophomore jinx, mixing pop with hip-hop on her sophomore album, collaborating with Nas, her Pepsi deal, upcoming features for Cam’ron and Waka Flocka Flame, and more. Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded is now available in stores and on iTunes. The disc has collaborations with Lil Wayne, Drake, Chris Brown, 2 Chainz, Rick Ross and others. Below are some excerpts:

On M.I.A. and the Super Bowl incident: “I love M.I.A. She’s cuckoo sometimes, but I love her.”

On whether she believes in the sophomore jinx: “Hell no! This album is gonna sell so much more than Pink Friday. Ask me this question two years from today, Clue. With me, I’m never about first week and all that. I like to look at it for the long haul. I’ma travel, I’ma meet my beautiful babies, my Barbz everywhere, and this is my first time I’m gonna get to do a world tour, so the album is gonna do its thang.”

On mixing pop, R&B, and hip-hop on Roman Reloaded: “When I first got in the studio, it was just gonna be all rap, that’s why I named it Roman Reloaded. Things just don’t keep my attention long enough to only do one thing. By the time the album was done, it was just a versatile album. But I have to say, I feel like people love saying the pop word first. The album is more hip-hop than pop.”

On working with Nas on “Champion”: “I didn’t think I could get Nas, just to be honest. He’s always been so exclusive. He doesn’t work with everybody and I respect people that are like that. They take pride in their craft.”

On her Pepsi deal: “I can’t comment on any Pepsi-related stuff. I do have a new relationship with Pepsi and they will tell everyone more at the right time.”

On her upcoming collaborations: “I may have a little something something coming out with [Cam’ron]. I may have a little something something coming with Waka Flocka, my little brother. I do have a few more verses to hand in and then we got to hit the world a couple times.”

On her favorite songs to record: “I had a blast recording a lot of my dance songs, ‘Pound the Alarm’ and ‘Starships.’ Those were a lot of fun. I had fun recording ‘Come on a Cone.’ I was busting out laughing in the booth. When I said, ‘Dick in your face,’ that was in one take. And I also had fun doing ‘Beez in the Trap’ ’cause I made that hook up trying to be funny.”
