Nicki Minaj Reveals She Keeps Lil Wayne In Her Mind When Writing New Music

Nicki Minaj appears on the front cover of T Magazine‘s “The Greats” issue, which will be available on newsstands October 22nd.

In an excerpt from her cover story, Nicki mentioned that she keeps Lil Wayne, Jay Z and Foxy Brown in her head while she is writing new music.

The Young Money Barbie revealed that she does this because all 3 of them artists have influenced her so much. You can read exactly what Minaj said after the jump below!

“Do you sound intelligent? Does your flow switch up? Are you in command of the beat? I listen for things like that. Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, Foxy Brown – Those are the three I keep in my head when I’m writing because they’ve influenced me so much, I feel like I’m a part of all of them. This is definitely the most inspired and free and excited I’ve been since I started releasing albums through a label. I’m not going to blame a label. You just overthink. When you’re doing your own little thing, you feel like, I can be myself, I can be crazy. When you start working with a record company, you start thinking you need a bigger sound. I wanted to get back to the place where I wasn’t second-guessing things so much.”

      Run This Town, only because of the nostalgia behind it lol

  • Wayne is really the greatest rapper ever wow

  • Did y’all know that Marques Houston helped produce Hustler Muzik. Marques fucking Houston

  • Muhammed Riyaz Zx
    • DC

      Everyone keeps doubting him. I keep saying if he’s a troll then he’s the most realistic troll ever. Its getting annoying that the one time we as Wayne fans get a reliable source everyone trashes him/it.

      • Muhammed Riyaz Zx

        The main reason we think him trolling us is that he replies to everyones message that usually waynes management never does

        • Don Plantmen

          #TRUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUE

          • A.

            2 years after no ceilings 2, D6 drops.

        • YMYSL 🐍🐍

          He doesn’t work for them.

        • YMYSL 🐍🐍

          He works with them. He has his own thing going on

          • Muhammed Riyaz Zx

            He said the cover art is done and its dope

            • YMYSL 🐍🐍

              Ask him if he can send you the upper right corner of the cover lol

              • Muhammed Riyaz Zx

                I thought of asking it
                but iam damn sure, he wont even reply me for that

                • YMYSL 🐍🐍

                  Make a fake account lolol

        • DC

          Lol I understand but he’s sincere and realistic. Some of these fans act like Im and others are idiots for believing him

          • Muhammed Riyaz Zx

            he said it will drop before nov ends

          • Muhammed Riyaz Zx

            and everyone said i was trolling whenvi said marleg said d6 dropping on nov 7th or 13th

        • PJ

          Yeah Fam YM ainΒ΄t saying shit but this fuck nigga from igotinstru the plug haha yΓ‘ll so damn stupid

    • YungJackBauer

      If its troll gotinstrumental goes to jail, just because i can put gotinstrumentals to jail.
      #Federalagent

      • Muhammed Riyaz Zx

        Before that we gonna put you in jail
        lol

        • YungJackBauer

          Jackbauer vs muhammed.
          Think again boi

          • Muhammed Riyaz Zx

            hehe lol bruh

    • wayne should do a old school beat like he did w my name is. like a lean version of gin and juice. i think its dope when wayne hops on a old beat cause it shows that he can do pretty much any style of rap

  • DC

    We should make a list of beats to send to gotinstrumentals for D6

    • Muhammed Riyaz Zx

      But the thing is marleyg said wayne did maskkoff
      but gotinstrmntl denied it

      • DC

        That’s notable, but I don’t think it’s enough to call him a troll

        • Muhammed Riyaz Zx

          but he said he may send that beat to wayne

      • He probably got the beat from a diff source

      • PJ

        Anybody really think this no one sending wayne beats? Wayne will get that shit straight from metro nd southside, This troll ainΒ΄t even connected to the REAL Instrumental like how LMAO Same Shit With Magnolia

        • PJ

          Why Would Wayne Rap Over A Remake LMAO the fuck
          Please stop giving this igotinstru shit no attention

    • YMYSL 🐍🐍

      I think it’s too late for a full on list lol. I’m sure he sent most of the beats we’d list, anyway

      • DC

        Lol good point. Its just exciting to think we could be involved in the process

  • YungJackBauer
