Gucci Mane recently did an interview with Atlanta’s Hot 107.9, where he talked about ‘Young Money’ princess Nicki Minaj being a hard worker who doesn’t keep it real.
“When she came to Atlanta she gave me a shout out, said I helped her in her career, but at the end of the day I just think a lot of times you keep it real with somebody, you can’t expect them to keep it real with you. I told you man [in] this industry, [people] that want to be famous, people forget how to keep it real and forget the people that helped them get to where they at. I tip my hat to Nicki for being hard worker, but at the same time, she know she didn’t keep it real.”
Lately, the Atlanta rapper has been targeting other rap artists such as Yung Joc, Young Jeezy, Keyshia Cole, with Nicki being his latest victim.
Now, Nicki was also spotted leaving her London hotel with her alleged boyfriend/hype-man scaff beezy while signing autographs for fans. Plus, the ‘Starships’ singer dished about her upcoming E! network series “Nicki Minaj: My Truth”.
On her upcoming new show, ‘Nicki Minaj: My Truth’:
You’re going to see the no makeup, the crazy sweaty face in the studio, you know, the regular stuff. You’re going to see rehearsals for the tour, behind-the-scenes stuff, me speaking to people who interview me and really saying how I really feel about the people who interview me.
A great part of what I love about the special is showing the people around me, the people I love, the people I have to be with everyday, and it’s like showing us kind of take on all these new things that have been thrown my way recently. It has been really, really busy! I’ve been finishing up the album, doing the American Idol stuff, rehearsing for the tour and everything literally had to be done in a span of three weeks. The album comes out on November 19th and I wanted to document that so that the fans could see a part of this body of work. I think this is the first time people are going to understand me, the person as opposed to the persona. I mean, I don’t know who people think I am, but I’m pretty sure they have me not figured out.
She also talked about what type of Judge she’ll be on American Idol:
I remember that some of the toughest criticism I’ve ever gotten is what stood out in my brain and what made me better. I didn’t want to go on the show and be phony to the contestants. I want them to have a real idea of the business, because this is real life and if you really want it, you’ve got to be able to [handle] tough criticism. I get the worst criticism ever, I think in the freaking industry, but hey it is what it is. I just continue to push myself. I wanted to be as articulate as possible in explaining how I really feel about them. I really want them to leave with actual advice, not just, “Oh I just don’t like you.”
