Nicki Minaj Vibe June/July Split Issue Cover Photo – Nicki Minaj dressed like a a cartoon character graces the cover of Vibe’s June/July Split Issue that she shares with Erykah Badu.
In the mag,the rapper talks about being inspired by Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s rhyming style and female rappers using sexually charged lyrics.
Here is what she said:
“When I grew up I saw females doing certain things, and I thought I had to do that exactly.The female rappers of my day spoke about sex a lot . . . and I thought that to have the success they got, I would have to represent the same thing. When in fact I didn’t have to represent the same thing.”
On her tribute to ODB:
“I’m not abandoning the funny voices. I just did a crazy tribute to ODB’s ‘Shimmy Shimmy Ya.But it’s coming up more with the album. I had a teacher in elementary who would stand on her table and whisper. We’d all turn around like, ‘What is this lunatic doing?’ But she would achieve what she wanted. She wanted us to stop talking and listen. I feel like I need to mellow it down so people can hear what I have to say.”
What are your thoughts on the crazy cover?
