birdman speaks on nicki minaj, “roman’s revenge” + “beefs”

The buzz surrounding Nicki Minaj seems to be at its highest point. But the song that everyone’s talking about is “Roman’s Revenge,” with Eminem. Were you shocked to hear Nicki go toe-to-toe with Em?

Well, Nicki doesn’t surprise me anymore. I be around her a lot and I think she’s very talented. I think she has surprised other people, but not me. Going back to when we first signed her I felt that she had this special talent. Nicki can rap…she has style; she is classy with it. She has all the elements. And she is around the best that’s doing it today. She has a team, but Nicki is handling her own.

Given Cash Money’s past policy of staying out of beefs, did you know Nicki was going to go at Lil’ Kim?

Real talk, but maybe Kim asked for it. Usually we don’t try to make money like that…that’s not our theory. We make great music. We have never been the type to make songs about motherfuckas. I think Nicki is speaking in general, not just Kim personally. A lot of motherfuckers have been hating on her success. To me, they are all asking for it. I don’t think any of them has as a talented clique as Nicki. We a movement.

What comes to mind when you hear Eminem call your girl Nicki Smalls?

That means a lot. It’s great that Nicki is being recognized. Everybody is paying attention. For her to be working with Em and these different acts outside of Cash Money shows that she’s handling her own business. Nicki sings, she raps…we try to have well-rounded artists. Wayne is the same way. He raps, sings and plays guitar. Same with Drake with his singing, acting and rapping. We are molding them to not just be rappers. Just don’t limit yourself.

nicki minaj collaborates with mtv for documentary

As Drake traveled the road to music stardom earlier this year, MTV was with him every step of the way, getting behind-the-scenes footage. The result was an enjoyable documentary entitled ‘Better Than Good Enough’ that showed the tremendous work that goes into launching a star. Young Money’s next big one is Nicki Minaj and it looks like she’ll be getting the same treatment from the television network as cameras have been following her every move during the recording process.

“Here’s a first look at a BIG project I’m doing with MTV,” Minaj teased on Twitter Monday evening, posting a screenshot. “Sneak peak later this week!!!”

Both her and Drake have had the pressure of dealing with major debut releases in similar environments. Both have increasingly vast fanbases clamoring for perfection and guessing sales figures. With younger fans more eager to purchase pop-oriented music finding a balance between pop and traditional hip-hop versus becomes the challenge.

‘Pink Friday’ is available from stores and digital retailers on Nov. 22. Minaj, like Drake in June, will also appear for a surefire chaotic signing at Best Buy in Manhattan on Nov. 23.

KC: I love this record. I just like the song. It was an idea that I came up with a long time ago and me and Nicki decided to do a feature together and I just played it for her to see what she would think about it. It just came and it was hot to me.

Speaking of Nicki, we’ve been hearing some rumors about a rift between you two in the studio. So, do you and Nicki go way back?

KC: No, no, no, that’s the second time somebody asked me that. We actually just met, but she’s a dope MC. I think that she brings a lot of excitement to the game. She’s not afraid to be different and I think that that’s dope.

KC: Yeah, yeah. It was all good, it was dope.
