What’s up with Nicki Minaj?
Just days ago, Hip-Hop’s self-appointed “Barbie” hit headlines when she dropped out of a summer tour with Rihanna and Ke$ha, now Minaj is leaving fans scratching their heads again after she fired her manager of three years, Debbie Antney. “I received a letter, which was (a) suspension,” says Antney, who happens to be the mother of rising rap star Wacka Flocka Flame. “The next letter that came in was a cease and desist in doing all business with Nicki Minaj from Nicki’s attorney. I love Nicki. I wish her the most success. It’s not about the music, she’s like one of my children… I wish her no harm, only much success.”
Nicki is currently working on her debut album.
