Nicki Minaj Speaks On Selling Out & “Starships”
Published on February 24th, 2012 | by Oliver Rivers0
After recently performing and premiering her new single, “Romand Reloaded“, Nicki Minaj called in to Funkmaster Flex to discuss it. Nicki touched base on various topics such as selling out, expanding her brand and more.
Nicki mentions that she has always planned to put out something more “urban” because “Starships was a monster”.
With the release of “Starships,” the love was not mutual by the hiphop scene but nonetheless, she still feels really good:
“to be honest, I feel really, really good. I feel that Hip Hop cares enough that they have something to say. I remember when I was hoping that someone had something to say about me on the radio, or cared enough.”
“So I’m good. I think people sometimes get blown away by the magnitude of the pop stuff, because the pop stuff, it reaches everywhere and then I feel like my Hip Hop fans or Hip Hop culture starts getting a little bit afraid that I’m going to leave. But this is who I am. I’m not going to change – I’m just adding on to my brand. And if you don’t understand that, then it’s probably why you don’t travel and you don’t see the world and I probably can’t even have a conversation with you anymore.”
