In one interview with former rapper turned podcaster Joe Budden, Nicki Minaj has revealed her intention to focus on her entrepreneurial endeavors.
His career aspirations are to follow in the footsteps of lil wayne, who signed her to his label, Young Money. Not only does she intend to start her own record label, but she also plans to manage other artists.
“I’m starting my own management company,” Minaj told Budden. “I also do my record label. I have a few artists with whom I will start the record company. I’ll talk about it closer to the album. She also reveals that her show Queen Radio returns to another platform.
Minaj aspires to be as successful in business as Jay-Z.
“The female rappers before me, I would always say they should have retired as moguls. And I was like, ‘Why isn’t there a female version of Jay-Z, who at the time? , even when I walked in, you could tell he had tycoon status,” she said. “So I was like, ‘I’m going to be that person, I’m going to do this.’ Even what I’ve done, I haven’t yet done what I want to do, what I have to do, what I’m going to do.
The Queens rapper also talked about respecting the female rappers who came before her and explained why she chose to have cosmetic surgery early in her career. The conversation also incorporated her sense of fashion, being a trailblazer, and her questioning why she or any other rapper, in particular Lil Kimweren’t lucky enough to be on the cover of vogue.
Budden also asked if she was doing the Swizz Beats/Timbaland competition from Verzuz and who she would be up against. She also talked about upcoming projects, which include a documentary and a potential film role.
