When Nicki Minaj arrived for our video interview, there were no less than 8 people in tow, an entourage of management, publicity, World Star Hip Hop and one dude who looked like he lives to snap bones into unsound positions Steven Segal style. Minaj herself is pretty short, pretty sweet and really just downright pretty. She can also rap her ass off, which coupled with the aforementioned most certainly makes her an investment worth protecting. Having just released her Beam Me Up Scotty mixtape (that we’ve been hearing about since December), Minaj stopped through to talk about coming up in Queens, her background in drama and the difference between Beam Me Up Scotty and the infamous Sucka Free tape. And to hit on Felipe.
