Nicki Minaj will be featured on the next cover of Marie Claire. The November issue will carry the story on how the award winning female rapper feels about working with Beyoncé and how anything Jay-Z can do she can do…She also breaks it down on competing with male rappers in the industry.
Nicki Talks On working with Beyoncé:
“Every time Bey and I do something together, I see how women are inspired, and it has nothing to do with how we look. It has to do with how we are owning who we are and telling other women you should be the boss of your own career and the brains behind your life or your decisions or your art. I just love that feeling.”
Nicki Talks On competing with male rappers in a male-dominated world:
“I don’t need to read a book about [business]. I can look at someone’s career and just pinpoint the dos and the don’ts, and the one person I’ve done that with for my entire career was Jay Z. He did such a great job being an authentic street guy and a businessman, and I was like, Why aren’t there women doing that, taking the success from rap and channeling it into their empire? I felt like anything he could do, I could do.”
