"The Pinkprint" hits stores tomorrow.
Nicki Minaj's Pinkprint press run continues with a brand new interview with DJ Whoo Kid. In addition to addressing rumors of a rift within YMCMB sparked by Wayne's vocal proclamation that Birdman and CM are holding him hostage, Nicki also detailed her process in the creation of her new album, and much more.
"When you're at the top, there's only one place to aim at," Nicki said in reference to the media's portrayal of the perceived cracking in YMCMB's foundation. "Love conquers all. I do know that, no matter what, we're a family. We're not always the bestest friends, but we love each other underneath it all. I know Wayne and Baby love each other. And I know they're going to resolve anything that needs to be resolved."
Meanwhile, speaking on Jay Z's The Blueprint influence on the project, Nicki expressed that Jay is one of her biggest influences, citing a recent encounter with Hova as one of her proudest moments. "When I saw him this last time in Paris, he told me how much he loved 'Chi-Raq' and 'Lookin Ass Nigga' [...] That's why it's so upsetting to me when people don't give me my credit, when I got the biggest nigga in rap saying 'Chi-Raq,' 'Lookin Ass Nigga.'"
