On a recent appearance on the Tim Westwood Show, Nicki Minaj once again said that she misses all her Barbz on Twitter.
But when the interview continued, the YMCMB princess told Westwood that she’s thinking about leaving the rap game, period, just like she left her 11 million-plus Twitter followers behind by leaving the mainstream social networking site. The reason for such a thought? Being unappreciated, Nicki says.
“People aren’t even giving the kid props for taking it back to the essence… this is my fourth mixtape really,” said Minaj, referring to her latest LP, Pink Friday … Roman Reloaded. “You know what I’m saying. The kid did like that so she could feed her fans. But really, now the kid is thinking maybe she should leave the game.”
“They ungrateful,” Nicki’s right-hand man Safaree chimed in. “They ungrateful in these streets.”
Added Nicki: “Not my Barbz, but all these other folks finna make her leave the game.”
One thing’s for certain, Nicki’s Barbz did represent for her by purchasing Pink Friday … Roman Reloaded, making it the No. 1 album in the country in its debut week and No. 3 this past week. Her sophomore set has Nicki rhyming alongside the star-studded likes of Nas, Young Jeezy, 2 Chainz and her YMCMB family, Lil Wayne and Drake.
Nicki has also been nominated for Top Rap Artist and Top Female Artist, in which she’ll be up against the heavyweight likes of Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Adele and friend Rihanna, as part of the 2012 Billboard Music Awards. –Jakinder Singh
