Nicki Minaj Loves Jay-Z
Nicki Minaj graces the cover of 5 Magazine this month and in the cover story she reveals that Jay-Z has always been her favorite rapper. The Young Money starlet said that the Brooklyn legend always kept her attention because he was a rapper with brains.
"It was like whatever Jay-Z says is the gospel because he was smart," Minaj says. "I was raised attracted to intelligent rappers. Like if you can make me think…that’s why I’m so into metaphors. I love double meanings of things. Just having people look at things in a different way because all my favorite rappers [Lil’ Wayne] that’s what they do, that’s what intrigued me."
