Nicki Minaj recently scored her 56th Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart with “Only,” featuring Drake, Lil Wayne and Chris Brown. The Barbz now has the most Billboard Hot 100 hits of any female MC. Not too shabby for a Trinidadian from Southside Jamaica, Queens.
In her latest cover story for Billboard, Minaj addresses the haters who accuse her of being fake or a sellout, maintaining she’s yet to arrive and still has lots to accomplish.
She Will Never Rest on Her Laurels
Minaj assures fans (and detractors) that her new record will be more than a victory lap. “It’s corny when rappers feel like they’ve made it and they don’t have to prove themselves anymore,” says Minaj. “You should always be competing. You should always be trying to show that you’re the best. My album is going to be important to hip-hop.”
The YMCMB lady goes on to talk about being thought of as unintelligent and being at the helm of her own businesses, as opposed to having it run for her.
