Although he is currently locked up, as we previously reported, that didn't stop new Gucci Mane artist Waka Flocka Flame from co-signing the new first-lady of Young Money, Nicki Minaj. Waka Flocka says not only did Nicki Minaj earn her cred, but she deserves her rising popularity. "Yeah, not no more, she's stupid booked up," Flocka said about how much time he gets to hang out with Minaj, "that's my partner though. She's cool as h*ll, and she's fire with the rapping. Don't get on no…..with her because she's going to smoke your a**."
In related news, Nicki Minaj recently talked about how Jay-Z recommended

Letterman. "[I] cannot put into words how I felt when he told me
that," Nicki said about the Jay co-sign. "[Robin] was like, 'By the way,
