Nicki Minaj Hints At Remy Ma Collaboration/ Refers To New Album As ‘Epic’
Nicki Minaj's Barbz will have to regain trust in the rapper after tweeting a faux album announcement.
Last Monday, Minaj spoke to the New York-oriented radio stations, Hot 97 and Power 105.1. While the station rivalries focused on similar topics, Minaj spilled more details to Hot 97 on her forthcoming project (Not “Pick My Fruit Out” by the way).
She reveals that she wanted to bring more female unity to her latest effort, “Pinkprint” with a collaboration featuring Foxy Brown and Remy Ma. However, Minaj still has hope in the collab saying, “I love them both so I think that’s only a matter of time before she and I do something.”
As for the highly anticipated follow-up to Pinkprint: “The album is so freaking epic,” she explained, “but it’s a journey. Before my first album came out, I was on everybody’s song. I had my own campaign without realizing it. Right now, I have to complete a few things for other people…What that does, throughout my career, it makes me get back to my fun side and it makes me push my pen.”

Flavor's Two Cents: However, there’s a difference between now and then. When Minaj debuted, there was mystery behind her. She had just stepped out and was already collaborating with acts such as Mariah Carey, Trey Songz, and Usher. While Minaj’s image was obviously influenced by Lil’ Kim, to the new generation it was perceived as ‘outlandish’ and ‘different,’ which garnered more interest behind her. Now that she’s become a household name, the frequent collaborations could instead overexpose her.
