On Being a Role Model to Young Black Women
…Every time I do a business venture or something that isn’t the norm for a female rapper, I pat myself on the back. It’s important that corporate America can see a young black woman being able to sell things outside of music…A female rapper! With HSN!

On Referencing Her Health Scare in her BET Acceptance Speech
“I was making a point to say that the business kills so many people and we don’t even realize it. I can only imagine how many people in this business have died because they may not have wanted to… to be embarrassed publicly. We care so much about what the world thinks that we don’t live, really.”

On Leaving Her Family:
Her younger brother was just a child when she signed with Young Money and left her mom’s home. ‘One day he asked my mother, Do you ever think there’ll come a time we all live in the same house again, and Onika will be back and she’ll have her room, and I’ll have my room? Nicki says. And it just broke my heart.Before a tear can muck up any of her makeup, Samuels wordlessly pops up from the couch to nab her a tissue. As soon as the curtain of Nicki’s private life slides open, revealing the sacrifices she’s made for her career, it’s pulled back again. ‘I don’t want to get emotional,’ she says, ‘I just miss them. Every time I talk about them, I get emotional.’

Lil Wayne Speaks On The Lack Of Authenticity In Hip Hop

Written by Nigel D. / 07.31.14



“I know I’m authentic because I’m 35 million years in the game. I don’t know where the authenticity is in the game anymore. Today everyone sounds alike, they looking alike, they acting alike, they dressing alike. I came out when everybody was super different. You had an ODB. You had a Busta Rhymes and then you had a 2Pac. You had a Biggie. And everybody was different. Biggie was talking about Mob and Mafia shit. 2Pac was wylin’, talking about West Coast this and that. You had niggas like Meth and Red talking about how high they got and making people laugh. And then now, you got them, them. You got the categories and then everyone falls under it.”

Do you think Hip Hip has got less authentic over the years?
