Female rapper Nicki Minaj recently spoke about how she wants to be able to have longevity in hip-hop, and to stay relevant in years to come.
She told DJ Envy: “I am still hungry though, I guess I’m not hungry in a monetary way. But I’m hungry like, I want to know what it feels like to be able to have 10 albums under my belt, and I think when you’re a perfectionist, when you’re an artist, you want to be great at your craft and right now, that’s where I am. I feel like, you know what, yes, I am a new artist, I still have to put out an album, I still have to prove myself. I still have to prove myself to me.
In the interview Minaj was also asked about the rumour going around that she was dating P Diddy, something that she denied:
“That is, wait, can I just say, I hold everybody’s hands! I hold my bodyguard’s hands! Noooo I’m not dating Diddy! Listen, sometimes I think they know these things are false. But when people ask me, I think, ‘I didn’t even know I was gonna have to even address that.’ When I’m ready to announce new management, you’ll know.”
