Nicki Minaj is ready to do the damn thing! Now that she is on tour with Lil Wayne she is ready to take the stage and get buck wild!
While you can expect some whacked out ensembles, one of her main goals as an opening act is to get peeps excited. She explains, “You always want to start the show and get everybody riled up. At the end of the day, it’s hip-hop. Let’s not get that misconstrued or anything. People see the way I’m dressed and forget what I’m really doing. Why I’m really here is ’cause I write my raps. Why I’m really here is because I’m an MC. Why I’m really here is because I can go toe-to-toe with dudes. So we want to start the show off saying, ‘Yep, this is Nicki Minaj and this is what I do.'”
So what does Weezy have to say about his opening act? Honestly, he had doubts on what Minaj could bring. “I can’t front, I just thought she was going to be the new female MC that none of these other female MCs can touch. But now, she’s blossomed into a megastar with this new attitude and this style. Now when I talk to her, I just tell her, ‘Do what you do, baby.’ I used to be able to go into the studio and say, ‘Nah, don’t say that, don’t say that.’ You know, ‘That was better.’ Now, do what you do, baby. I don’t have a clue about what you’re doing right now, but it’s working, do it.”
In other words, do the damn thing!
