Irv Gotti recently spoke about his thoughts on Nicki Minaj's talent, comparing the new Young Money artist to Grammy-winning singer Lauryn Hill. Irv, known for helping rappers like Ja Rule and singers like Ashanti, thinks Nicki is the full package.
"The world has yet to see the best of Nicki Minaj. What she's delivering to the world now is basically what they want. But I know that she's a super talented superstar who can do anything at a high level–rap, sing, act, whatever she wants to do. This is just the beginning of Nicki Minaj. Her best is yet to come. In my opinion she is as talented as my other girl Lauryn Hill. They have completely different styles. But as far as the talent is concerned they both can do it all. Nicki just isn't showing it yet 'cause she doesn't want to. But world be prepared 'cause she's the truth."
