Birdman spoke Billboard.com on Nicki Minaj's sophomore album. Nicki's debut album, "Pink Friday" was released last November, and her next album, as of yet untitled, is in the works. According to Birdman we can expect the album in early 2012. "Nicki's back in the studio, so we're looking to drop Nicki in the first quarter," he says.
Her next single will potentially be available for the masses in the near future, "Maybe this year? I don't know," says Birdman. "We're really thinking it out. But she's in the studio, and we're looking real soon, because she's ready to go and we're ready to go with her."
