Nicki Minaj fans are apparently in for a serious treat when her new album finally drops.
Trying to find any concrete details about the rapper’s forthcoming record is definitely a tricky feat. Minaj and company are keeping specifics under wraps for the moment. However, Cash Money’s Birdman recently revealed a few positive things about the new songs. In his opinion, this is possibly the biggest album of Nicki’s career.
“For the new album, she’s doing what she feels like doing and we’re supporting her. You hear a lot of growth in her music. She’s coming confident and hard. We expect for this to be one of the biggest [albums] from her. It’s more rap. This album is going to have a little bit of everything but more rap. I am sure some of the team will be on it,” Birdman explained to Billboard.
He continued, “She’s still doing her thing, then getting features on it. She’s definitely coming this year. She hasn’t picked a date yet. What she did for Young Money is totally different then what she’s doing for her album. She’s more girly-er. Tha Carter V will definitely come before Nicki’s [album].”
Minaj fans who need some new material right now should seriously investigate the Young Money compilation Rise of an Empire, a collection that features the rapper’s controversial tune “Lookin A** N****.” The disc is currently available at a number of online retailers, so don’t hesitate to snag a copy while you still have the cash to spare.
Nicki Minaj also makes her live-action big screen debut in the upcoming comedy The Other Woman. The film also stars Cameron Diaz, Kate Upton, and Leslie Mann. According to Perez Hilton, the rapper had a very hard time remembering Mann’s name on the set of the picture.
“Nicki Minaj never remembered my name. She just referred to me as ‘lady.’ She would just say, ‘Come, lady.’ And I was like, ‘Okay!'” the actress revealed during a recent interview.
If that’s still not enough Minaj-oriented material to keep you happy, then you can always pick up some of Nicki’s products while you’re waiting for the new album to drop. In addition to a Kmart clothing line, the rapper also has Beats by Dre headphones and a perfume on the market. Minaj definitely has a plethora of items available to purchase for those who are willing to spend the money.
