Nicki Minaj co-signed Will Smith's daughter, and new Roc Nation artist, Willow by remixing her single "Whip My Hair." Rapping about her school days, playing Double Dutch in the yard Nicki brings her usual A-List rhymes and unbeatable character to a song already burting with swagger and attitude.
Previously, Jay-Z talked about signing the young girl to his Roc Nation label. "First off, I heard the record first, before I knew that it was recorded by a nine year-old," Jay said in an interview with radio host Ryan Seacrest.
"I was like, 'Man, that record is a smash.' — I went to Japan to do
some stuff and they were out there and I met Willow and she walked in
and the first thing she said was, 'I'm really nervous,' and I thought
that maturity, explaining exactly how she was feeling as she was walking
in the room, I knew right there she was a star. I believe in super
stars and I believe in big records on super stars…Yes, [I signed her
and we plan on helping her] facilitate all her ideas. As you're going to
learn today, if you sit with her for a half hour, you'll see, she's
just a wealth of information and ideas…She's a child, she has child
innocence but she has a refreshing clear vision of what she wants to
be…And I imagine that's how Mike [Jackson] was as a kid."
