Nicki Minaj's candid interview with Joe Budden, discussing the creative process behind 'Pink Friday 2' and her views on the current state of rap, is now available on YouTube.


ARBZ are in for a treat this Christmas! Not only did Nicki reveal her interview with Funny Marco earlier today, but the highly anticipated interview between Nicki Minaj and media personality Joe Budden is now available on YouTube.

The interview was originally released on December 22 on Joe Budden's members-only Patreon, and the announcement of it set the Internet on fire. The conversation delved into the process of 'Pink Friday 2'. Nicki talked about the significance of "Are You Gone Already" and the events of the night that took her father away. Nicki then expressed her admiration for Biggie and Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, revealing that many of the melodies from their groundbreaking track "Notorious Thugs" were carried beyond her rendition in "Barbie Dangerous" and throughout the entire album: 'I knew that everybody, no matter what age, was going to have an emotional connection to that second song. Because it feels timeless.'

Of course, the conversation would not be complete if Joe and Nicki did not touch on the current state of rap. "The rap scene is now at 40%," she said. She also expressed her frustration with the lack of "Gatekeepers," claiming the rap scene is watered down because new players don't take it seriously. Though she admitted she likes some new rappers.
