Nicki Minaj always thought that Kanye West would "hate" her but turns out not does he like her, earlier this year he said she has the potential to be the worlds second best rapper behind only Eminem. "I had this conversation, 'Kanye West is gonna hate me,' " Minaj told MTV News. "[But] I met him and it was, 'Oh, come here, I want you to look at these naked girls.' Kanye West is everything that I didn't think he was, and a genius."
Nicki Minaj will be featured on two tracks on Kanye West's upcoming new "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" album while she also the voice behind West's short film, "Runaway." "He doesn't limit himself," she explained. "I heard him say the other day, not in these words, 'I'm not doing this for the masses, I'm not doing this for mainstream, you have to come to me, come get this art if you want it.' I think that's important for all artists to feel that way — we make so many changes because we want to please everybody. But at the end of the day, you can't please everybody."
