Young Money’s Nicki Minaj has shared her sentiments on her rap game achievements and acknowledged her place as one of the most successful female hip-hop artists.
Although she admits that she is rapidly achieving her planned goals, Minaj said helping making Young Money a top brand was unexpected.
“A part of me expected it, because I wanted it so bad, but I never saw all of this,” Minaj said in an interview. “You know, I never would’ve imagined that I would’ve signed to [Lil] Wayne, number one…[I] never imagined that Young Money/Cash Money would be the hip-hop crew…To be signed to them is one thing, but to be signed to them when they’re at their height, when this has become like an insane movement? No, I never imagined that, because when Wayne first called and reached out, I thought it was a joke. I’ve wanted this for a very long time, but I couldn’t — not even with a crystal ball — I could not have predicted these things would really happen this way.”
Since its release last month, Nicki Minaj Pink Friday album debut has already gone Gold with 658,400 copies sold.
