Nicki Minaj Speaks On “The Pinkprint” vs “The Blueprint” With Complex Magazine

Written by Nigel D. / 11.18.14


Complex: Jay Z’s The Blueprint inspired the title The Pinkprint and the idea of laying the blueprint for female rappers to come. What similarities do you see between you right now and Jay circa The Blueprint?

Nicki Minaj: I can’t. I have no idea what he was doing before The Blueprint dropped. It’s not that literal. People keep asking me about Jay’s The Blueprint and they think I’m doing something like that. I made reference to The Blueprint because Jay is the biggest rapper of our time. The name of the album was inspired by Jay but not the body of work. I do think that it’s going to create new rules, though, in [the way] that [The Blueprint did].

Complex: What are your new rules?

Nicki Minaj One rule is “no more self-judgment.” I’m not judging myself; I’m not dissing what I do. I’m proud of what I’ve done and I’m proud of what I’m working on. I’ve accomplished something and I’m not going to be ashamed to be happy about what I’ve done. I’m talking about things that I didn’t speak about on other albums. It’s a truthful body of work. The album is me doing a press conference, addressing things and not putting too much [emphasis] on “This has to be lyrical,” to the point where I lose focus of a message. It’s important as a woman to be vulnerable and be strong at the same time. The album is a dope balance of vulnerability and strength, of inspiration and of not being politically correct. It’s the best of both worlds. It’s tapping into both sides. There are times when all I want to do is be lyrical and create metaphors and experiment with my flow. Then there are times when I just want to tell a truthful story about love and have people identify with me.

Nicki Minaj Responds To Criticism Over The Alleged Use Of Nazi Imagery In Her “Only” Lyric Video

Written by Nigel D. / 11.11.14


We reached out to “Only” director and visual artist Jeff Osborne, who had previously worked with Minaj on her “Anaconda” lyric video, for an exclusive statement:

“Before I start, be clear that these are my personal views and not the views of Nicki Minaj, Drake, Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, or Young Money. First, I’m not apologizing for my work, nor will I dodge the immediate question. The flags, armbands, and gas mask (and perhaps my use of symmetry?) are all representative of Nazism. But a majority of the recognizable models/symbols are American: MQ9 Reaper Drone, F22 Raptor, Sidewinder missile, security cameras, M60, SWAT uniform, General’s uniform, the Supreme court, and the Lincoln Memorial. What’s also American is the 1st Amendment, which I’ve unexpectedly succeeded in showing how we willfully squeeze ourselves out of that right every day.

Nicki Minaj Says Her Album “The Pinkprint” Will Be Important To Hip Hop

Written by Nigel D. / 11.07.14

She’s a leading voice in male-dominated hip-hop. And The Pinkprint — the title of which nods to Jay Z’s The Blueprint– will likely have an outsized impact as hip-hop fans search for releases to rally around in a fallow year for the genre. “I’m not mad at where hip-hop’s at,” she says. “It’s in a more playful place.” Still, she continues, “it’s corny when rappers feel like they’ve made it and they don’t have to prove themselves anymore. 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.”
