Find Out Why Lil Wayne Wasnt Featured On Nicki Minaj Debut Album Pink Friday

Have you ever wondered why Lil Wayne was never featured on his Young Money artist Nicki Minaj‘s debut album, Pink Friday, back in 2010?

As it was the seventh anniversary of the project yesterday, the Barbie revealed the exact reason as to why her boss and mentor wasn’t on Pink Friday via social media:

“After all his love & support, my mentor Lil Wayne couldn’t be on my debut album due to a gun charge in NY. That had me fucked up @ the time.”

If you recall, Weezy was locked up behind bars at Rikers Island for gun possession during the time Nicki was recording her album. This is why when he was released from jail, Minaj put Tunechi straight onto her “Roman’s Revenge” remix!

7 years ago this debut was released on the same day as Kanye’s #MBDTF [which I also appear on]. He sold half a million first week. I sold 375K first week. PF went #1 a few weeks later on the Billboard 200, breaking a record for the 1st female to do it since Ms.Lauryn Hill. – After all his love & support, my mentor Lil Wayne couldn’t be on my debut album due to a gun charge in NY. That had me fucked up @ the time. It’s now triple platinum and my final single off that album is almost DIAMOND. My fans have been the most loving, supportive, relentless people all over the world since b4 this album even dropped. Thank you. We’re about to do it all over again. Can’t wait to see you guys. Miss you so much. What was your fave off this album? 🦄 #RomansRevenge #RightThruMe #DidItOnEm #Moment4Life #Blazin #SuperBass #SaveMe #HereIAm #ImTheBest 🦄 ‼️‼️‼️ everyone gets hooks n songs already done now, all these songs I just named, (with exception of hook on super bass which I co wrote with ester) ‼️‼️‼️I not only wrote my rap, but I also wrote my own hooks.‼️‼️‼️I believe that’s why this album sounds so personal & honest.

        TPAB, Darksky paradise, IYRTITL, FWA, Mac Miller – Good AM, The Doc2, Asap – ALLA, Lupe T&Y, B4DA$$, Trapsoul, rodeo, free TC, just to name a few.

        boi, I’m asking you from the bottom of my heart, in your entire existence don’t ever reply to anything I post EVER again. especially with that dumb shit. you make wayne fans look bad.

        • dharma

          TPAB, Rodeo, D2, Barter 6, Tetsto & Youth were probably the best projects that year. And also Slime Season was probably 2015’s best mixtape.

      • dharma

        No, FWA was his best project in 2015. But NC2 wasn’t as bad as people say it was.

        • Skrrrt Cobain

          it was trashcans dawg. don’t even do that to yourself.

    • Scream☁️9FDAWORLD

      😂😂

  • Udoni$ Rick¥

    I hate saying this because i personally think Wayne’s, story telling and his overall flow has actually gotten better but since he went to jail he was never the same and maybe that’s a good thing becaue the trajectory he was on after no ceilings was crazy. I always like to think how much better his music would of been if he never got locked up, because he was totally different after coming out plus he was on probation so no weed, lean for like 5 years. All he did was pills cuz they only in ya system for a couple days. But y’all heard the cuts off what was C4? Go getta, told y’all, my darling baby, we back soon(shanell), I’m going in (solo version), yes, never get it, blow my mind i could keep going rs

    • Muhammed Riyaz Zx

      Wayne is always wayne
      Just stop bitching atleast till he drops something

      • Udoni$ Rick¥

        I ain’t bitching bout it cuz it’s life it happens I’m saying it would be crazy to see where he’d be if never went to jail, musically. Cuz the music before he went to jail was the best he ever made

        • Muhammed Riyaz Zx

          You know honestly
          I love the current wayne than wayne on 2000-2015 or what

          • Udoni$ Rick¥

            Current wayne is deff still the best rn. He don’t even drop his good music lol he ain’t droppin no real songs if he ain’t gettin paid

  • ⚜️†🎧†unedabigbro🎧†⚜️
