The long awaited Nicki Minaj interview with Joe Budden is out today following a couple of teasers in the last week.
Nicki Minaj sits down with the podcast star to talk about her mental state, how motherhood has changed her, taking a hiatus from the industry because of her son, going through a writer’s block, her upcoming projects that include a management company and record label, why she feels her last album Queen wasn’t presented properly, and much more.
Nicki also talked about GRAMMYs not recognizing hip hop enough, the recent Billboard rules change which says only 1 digital sale will be counted per customer per week for songs and albums, and that “bulk purchases” of two or more will not be counted, the politics in the music industry, how certain artists get big radio play, mainstream media not showing enough love to black artists and trendsetters, and much more.
Watch the long conversation below. Yesterday, Nicki announced the return of Queen radio on Amazon’s new app.
