Nicki Minaj Gets Kanye’s Help For Debut

Posted By on March 3, 2010

     Nicki Minaj recently said she would like to work with Kanye West on her upcoming debut album. The first lady of Young Money said she has already locked up spots for Swizz Beatz and Sean Garrett. "I'm probably definitely going to work with Kanye," she revealed in an interview. "On my debut, I worked with Sean Garrett. And probably Swizz Beatz, he's gonna send me something. I like to work with unknown producers as well, so I accept beats from everybody."

     In related news, Minaj recently talked about getting the co-sign from Jay-Z. "I was like, 'What?' " Minaj said about Jigga claiming she has "charm." "Obviously, Jay-Z Jay-Z is a person in hip-hop that you almost don't think he exist until you meet him. It's almost like he's bigger than a person. He's a mythical figure. That's a great way to describe it. I was like, 'Jay-Z knows me?' I didn't think he knew who I was, let alone recommend me for something. If he did know who I was, I didn't know if he liked my style or approved. It was weird. It was like getting that stamp of approval from the most popular jock in high school and being a freshman in high school and thinking no one knows you exist."
