Nicki minaj opens up to mtv news about lil wayne’s new mixtape, her rap heroes

Nicki Minaj is riding high on the success of her latest album, ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded‘, her endless endorsement deals, a newly-announced fragrance, and even a possible multi-million dollar American Idol-judging offer. MTV News recently got the chance to sit down with the busty blonde (and busty red-head, and busty pink-head) about working with her label-boss, Lil’ Wayne on his newest mixtape, Dedication IIII and her ultimate female-rap hero: Foxy Brown!

I just did something with [Lil Wayne] for Dedication IIII, that should be out [soon], and it will be real funny.” she says. “He was working on a mixtape and I was like ‘Excuse me, I wanna be on your mixtape, hello!’ and he was like ‘Whatever, whatever you wanna do!‘”

What can she tell us about what she and Wayne did end up doing?

“.. I went in the other room and I recorded on this particular beat, that I’m sure my fans are going to be very happy that I touched… so I’m really excited for the kids to hear that.”

Nicki also told us about her recent opportunity to perform with her childhood rap-idol at her star-studded New York City stop on her Pink Friday Tour.

I just feel like the luckiest girl in the world for Foxy Brown to be on my stage.” she says humbly. (Check out photos of them performing, here!) “I never really told Foxy how much she influenced me and how she changed my life, I’m glad I finally got to come out and say ‘Yo, you were the most influential female rapper to me’. It was emotional, she was emotional.”
