Is a new Young Money on the way? It may be with Nicki Minaj’s next venture.
She’s dominated the rap industry for over a decade, so it’s only right that the rapper embarks on her next journey. After being in the business of influencing female rappers that have followed her pinkprint, Nicki is creating her own artist roster.
In an interview with Joe Budden, she revealed that she’s building her own record label and management company, according to Variety.
Just as the legendary 2000s to 2010s Hip-Hop era that came out out of Lil Wayne signing her and Drake to Young Money Entertainment, Nicki is carving a new executive path that will bring new buzzing talent for today’s industry.
“I am creating my own management company,” she shared with Budden, according to Variety. “I’m also doing my record company. I have a couple of artists that I will start the record company with. I’ll speak on that closer to album time.”
There’s no set in stone date yet for Nicki’s upcoming fifth studio album, so one will have to stay tuned.
Queen Radio Is Back
On March 8, the Barbs learned of the news that Queen Radio was making its comeback on Amazon’s new app, Amp.
AfroTech previously reported that the Clubhouse competitor is a platform for users to create live radio shows, where users can play music and take live callers. Along with Nicki, Amazon is partnering with Tinashe, Lil Yachty, Pusha T, Big Boi, and more.
“I am very excited to be partners with Amazon on bringing back Queen Radio,” Nicki said during an Instagram Live, according to Complex. “Queen Radio is something that is so dear to my heart. Of course, there have been times where I’ve thought about not wanting to do Queen Radio, or any radio for that matter, but why not?”
Nicki further announced that her fans could possibly expect her first official show to drop on April 8.
