Nicki Minaj's husband, Kenneth Petty, has pleaded guilty to failing to register as a sex offender in California.

According to court documents obtained by XXL on Friday (Sept. 10), Petty entered his guilty plea on Thursday (Sept. 9) in the United States District Court Central District of California via a video hearing. The Queens, N.Y. rapper's spouse faces up to 10 years in prison, a lifetime of supervised release, a fine of $250,000 or twice the amount gained or loss from the incident—whichever amount is higher—and a mandatory special assessment of $100, if convicted.

Kenneth Petty's sentencing has been scheduled for Jan. 24, 2022.

Last month, Petty struck a deal with the United States Attorney's Officer for the Central District of California where he would plead guilty to one count of failing to register as a sex offender in his case. In exchange, the USAO agreed to give Petty a lower sentence, which will be based on the United States Sentencing Commissions guidelines.

Petty's case stems from his February of 2020 indictment, which was a result of his move to California with Nicki in 2019, but failing to register as a sex offender. He turned himself in days later on March 4, 2020. Petty was arrested in November of 2019 after a traffic stop, which is when police realized he was registered in his home state of New York, but not in California. He was later released on $20,000 bail and went on to register in the West Coast state.

Back in 1995, Kenneth Petty was convicted of raping a 16-year-old girl one year prior. Petty was 16 years old himself at the time. Nonetheless, he served nearly four years in prison on the rape charge, resulting in his order to register as a sex offender in the states he resides in. On Dec. 11, 1997, the New York State Board of Examiners of Sex Offenders designated Petty as a Level 2 offender based on his 1995 conviction.

The news of Petty's guilty plea comes nearly one month after himself and Nicki were sued by Petty's rape victim and accused of harassing and intimidating the woman.

Kenneth Petty and Nicki Minaj wed in October of 2019 and welcomed a son together last year.

Nicki Minaj and her husband, Kenneth Petty, are facing a lawsuit in connection to Petty's attempted rape conviction in 1995.

According to a report from TMZ on Friday (Aug. 13), Nicki and her husband are being sued by a woman named Jennifer Hough, 43, for allegedly harassing and threatening Hough directly and indirectly in an effort to prevent her from speaking on the rape case. The woman has also accused the couple of causing her emotional distress in the lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York today.

Hough is suing the New York City-bred couple for intentional infliction of emotional distress, harassment and witness intimidation. She has filed a legal complaint in connection to Kenneth Petty's 1995 attempted rape conviction as well, suing him for the sexual assault.

Back in 1994, Petty was charged with first-degree rape, after Hough reported to police that Petty, a 16-year-old she knew from Jamaica, Queens, had raped her after leading her into a home at knifepoint. A year later, Petty was convicted of first-degree attempted rape, resulting in him having to register as a sex offender. He also recently struck a plea deal in the case after failing to register as a sex offender in the state of California, where he lives with his rapper wife.

Based on the court documents, when Nicki Minaj began dating Kenneth Petty in 2018, she allegedly spoke openly about Petty being "wrongly accused" and claimed that Hough had retracted her story about the attempted sexual assault, which Hough denies.

When Petty was arrested in March of 2020 for failing to register as a sex offender in California, Hough alleges that Nicki called and offered to fly the woman and her family to Los Angeles in exchange for recanting the rape claims made against the Queens, N.Y. native's husband, which would presumably benefit his case.

Hough reportedly declined the offer and days later, her family "suffered an onslaught of harassing calls and unsolicited visits." Then, the woman claims Nicki Minaj had unnamed people contact Hough's brother, offering $500,000 for her to disavow the rape allegations made against Petty.

Nicki Minaj allegedly went a step further, according to Hough, and sent lawyers to her home to strong-arm her into renouncing her claims against Kenneth Petty. As a result, Hough began to worry and felt her safety was in jeopardy due to the harassment she was experiencing at her home.

Nicki Minaj and Kenneth Petty reportedly bribed Hough once more with $20,000 in cash. Another additional threat was made to her safety as well.

Since the news emerged of the lawsuit, people have been weighing in on social media.

One person tweeted, "Let’s never forget Nicki tried to paint the victim as white to make it a case of a downtrodden innocent black man, and lied and said it was about statutory rape when it was rape with a weapon…. the red flags have BEEN THERE."

Another wrote on Twitter, "The issue with Nicki is that she chose full and unconditional loyalty to her husband and it came at the cost of morality. Instead of accepting her husband’s wrongdoings and holding him accountable, she chose to be complicit in covering it up to clear his already damaged image."

A third person typed, "Imagine your title as queen of rap being tainted because you wanna defend a predator and harass a victim. nicki will be her own downfall."

XXL has reached out to a rep for Nicki Minaj and Kenneth Petty's attorney for a comment.

After being indicted last February for failing to register as a sex offender, Nicki Minaj's husband, Kenneth Petty, has struck a plea deal.

On Friday (Aug. 6), Petty agreed to a deal with the United States Attorney's Office for the Central District of California, according to federal court documents obtained by XXL. As part of the agreement, Petty pleaded guilty to one count of failing to register as a sex offender in the case. In return for his plea, the USAO has agreed to sentence Petty on the low end of the sentencing guideline spectrum. Ultimately, the decision is up to a judge. The mandatory minimum Petty could receive is five years of supervised release, according to the documents.

As previously reported, Petty was indicted on Feb. 25, 2020 and turned himself in to authorities on March 4, 2020. Petty moved to California in 2019 with Nicki but failed to register as a sex offender. He got on police radar after being arrested in November 2019 following a traffic stop, where it was determined he was a registered sex offender in New York but failed to do the same in his new residence of California. He was released on a $20,000 bail and shortly afterward properly registered with the state of California.

In 1995, Petty was convicted for first-degree attempted rape for a 1994 incident with a 16-year-old girl. He was also 16 at the time and he served almost four years in prison in the case. In 2006, he was sentenced to prison for a manslaughter conviction. Nicki has defended Petty, even saying his rape accuser has recanted her statement.

Nicki and Petty got married in October 2019. Nicki gave birth to their first child in September 2020.

There's no season quite like the summer, especially this year. Following a year of staying inside due to the pandemic, hip-hop fans are back outside to enjoy hot, sunny weather. With festivals resuming, outdoor events left and right and vacation season upon us, the music being released up until this point is in the running to be the song of the summer. Everyone has some sort of music-based memory tied to this time of year, and the summer of 2021 is no exception. Factor in the loosening COVID-19 restrictions and the feeling of "losing" this season last year, and it's only right that fans are already selecting their favorite tracks for the coveted "Song of the Summer" title. If Twitter is any indication, there are a plenty of songs that are already being given the designation. No worries, XXL will walk you through some of the top picks.

It's been crystal clear that women have been having a huge renaissance within rap music over the last year. There are numerous tracks by the ladies in hip-hop that have been thrust into song of the summer contention by fans. Megan Thee Stallion's "Thot Shit," released on June 11, celebrates women taking pride in themselves and doing what they want. A perfect soundtrack for all the Hot Girls these next few months.

City Girls' "Twerkulator," which officially dropped in May, was a leaked song that went viral o TikTok first before the Afrika Bambaataa and Soulsonic Force "Planet Rock" sample was cleared. The track peaked at No. 51 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming one of the most sought after songs for the turnup since its release. Coi Leray had the biggest hit of her career so far with "No More Parties," her first Hot 100 entry at No. 26. The song went platinum, and still has legs after its January release. These songs by talented women in rap are also competing for the song of the summer title against Doja Cat's recent single "Need to Know" and Yung Baby Tate's irresistibly catchy "Eenie Meenie."

There are also some song of the summer contenders from producers and newer names. Internet Money, the lauded producer collective, have been trying their hand at releasing more singles of their own. They may just have another hit with "His & Hers," featuring Don Toliver, Gunna and Lil Uzi Vert. The breezy hook and chemistry between all artists puts the song over the top. Florida rapper Cochise, who's no stranger to viral success, might be experiencing a second breakthrough with his new track "Tell Em" featuring $not. Coupling its familiar bounce with a free-flowing energy, the effort will be heard at more than a few parties in the coming months.

Nicki Minaj and Polo G offered some words of encouragement to Coi Leray who was down in the dumps after a clip of her performance went viral.

On Sunday (May 30), a video surfaced of Leray performing at the H-Town Memorial Day Mayhem event at the Toyota Center in Houston on Saturday (May 29). In the 14-second clip, the crowd appears to be non-responsive while watching Leray’s performance. The video generated a deluge of unfavorable comments from people on Twitter.

In response to the clip going viral, Leray hopped on her Twitter account to vent about the video and felt that she was unfairly attacked by people on social media.

One person said, "The Coi Leray situation in Houston is a good example of why artist shouldn’t do clubs. It’s difficult finding your audience with a bunch of people who just paid to party."

Another wrote, "Lmfao why tf Houston did coi leray like that last night."

In response to the reactions to her performance, Coi wrote in a series of tweets, “The love use to outweigh the hate but now the hate outweigh the love and it’s slowing destroying me. Y’all haters are in my life for a reason, we gon have to just deal with each other. In with whatever smoke.”

"damnnnnn it’s hard being soooo viralllll I swear the the pressure is onnnnnnnnnn … IM THE PRESSSUREEEEE," she continued.

After reading Leray's disheartening tweets, Nicki jumped on Twitter to defend her performance and offered her support to the up-and-coming rapper.

"Don’t do that. Chin up. Always remember this, when black ppl not fkn w|you #TheyWillBoo," wrote Nicki. "Those ppl were on their feet. That means they may not have known the song, but they were interested in getting to know more— so they were observing u. Charge it to the game & move on."

Nicki's advice must have boosted Leray's spirits. She replied back to the Queen Barbz, thanking her for her words of encouragement. "Thank you so much for this. This means everything and more to me. Wow. I’m speechless. You just gave me so much more hope. Thank you again," she replied in a tweet.

Fellow rapper Polo G also gave some advice to the "No More Parties" artist on Twitter. “That’s always how it b when u 1st come in Compared to when u really blow u gotta block that shit out & keep goin crazy u got it,” the Chicago rapper tweeted.

Nicki and Polo G weren't the only rappers offering their support to Leray. Rhymers Rubi Rose and Asian Doll also chimed in with uplifting comments.

"Y’all gone stop playing with coi like she isn’t a STAR," Rubi tweeted, while Asian wrote, "Awwww I love how we all had @coi_leray back today after seeing her so down even Nicki gave her her flowers & honestly that makes me so happy to see us defending & uplifting eachother especially when we call eachother 'friends.'"

Asian then added, "Got your back forever…Love You More SUPER STAR COI."

Later that day, Coi appeared more upbeat when she jumped on her Instagram Live to address the viral clip and the negative comments from the video. During the livestream, Coi explains that artists receive pressure from fans, but it's but so much that can be done because rhymers will always be subject to opinions and criticism.

2010-era Kanye West was in his bag.

That year, he released what some consider his best album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, which features among many fan favorites, the posse cut, "Monster," with Jay-Z, Rick Ross, Nicki Minaj and Bon Iver. While not the huge hit for 'Ye—it peaked at No. 18 on the Billboard Hot 100—"Monster" is lauded for its star power whom all came through on each verse. Most notably, Nicki Minaj who many claim bodied everyone else on the track. Curiously, Kanye had to be convinced to keep the song on the album or there is a chance we never got to hear this beast unleashed.

Check out the lyrics to Kanye West's "Monster" featuring Jay-Z, Rick Ross, Nicki Minaj and Bon Iver below.

INTRO: Justin Vernon
I shoot the lights out
Hide 'til it's bright out
Oh, just another lonely night
Are you willing to sacrifice your life?

VERSE ONE: Rick Ross
Bitch, I'm a monster, no-good bloodsucker
Fat muthafucker, now look who's in trouble
As you run through my jungles, all you hear is rumbles
Kanye West samples, here's one for example

CHORUS: Kanye West
Gossip, gossip, nigga, just stop it
Everybody know I'm a muthafuckin' monster
I'ma need to see your fuckin' hands at the concert
I'ma need to see your fuckin' hands at the concert
Profit, profit, nigga, I got it
Everybody know I'm a muthafuckin'' monster
I'ma need to see your fuckin' hands at the concert
I'ma need to see your fuckin' hands

VERSE TWO: Kanye West
Uh, the best living or dead hands down, huh
Less talk, more head right now, huh
And my eyes more red than the devil is
And I'm 'bout to take it to another level, bitch
Matter who you go and get, ain't nobody cold as this
Do the rap and the track, triple-double, no assists
And my only focus is stayin' on some bogus shit
Arguin' with my older bitch, actin' like I owe her shit
I heard the beat, the same raps that gave the track pain
Bought the chain that always give me back pain
Fucking up my money so, yeah, I had to act sane
Chi nigga, but these hoes love my accent
Chick came up to me and said, "This the number to dial
If you wanna make your number one your number two now"
Mix that Goose and Malibu, I call it "Malibooyah"
Goddamn, Yeezy always hit 'em with a new style
Know that muthafucker, well, what you gon' do now?
Whatever I wanna do, gosh, it's cool now
Know I'm gonna do, ah, it's the new now
Think you muthafuckers really really need to cool out
'Cause you'll never get on top of this
So, mami, best advice is just to get on top of this
Have you ever had sex with a pharaoh?
Ah, put the pussy in a sarcophagus
Now she claiming that I bruised her esophagus
Head of the class and she just won a swallowship
I'm livin' in the future so the present is my past
My presence is a present, kiss my ass

CHORUS: Kanye West & Jay-Z
Gossip, gossip, nigga, just stop it
Everybody know I'm a muthafuckin' monster
I'ma need to see your fuckin' hands at the concert
I'ma need to see your fuckin' hands at the concert (Yeah)
Profit, profit, nigga, I got it
Everybody know I'm a muthafuckin' monster
I'ma need to see your fuckin' hands at the concert
I'ma need to see your fuckin' hands

VERSE THREE: Jay-Z
Sasquatch, Godzilla, King Kong, Loch Ness
Goblin, ghoul, a zombie with no conscience
Question, what do these things all have in common?
Everybody knows I'm a motherfuckin' monster
Conquer, stomp ya, stop your silly nonsense
Nonsense, none of you niggas know where the swamp is
None of you niggas have seen the carnage that I've seen
I still hear fiends scream in my dreams
Murder, murder in black convertibles, I
Kill a block, I murder the avenues, I
Rape and pillage your village, women and children
Everybody want to know what my Achilles heel is
Love, I don't get enough of it
All I get is these vampires and bloodsuckers
All I see is these niggas I made millionaires
Millin' about, spillin' they feelings in the air
All I see is these fake fucks with no fangs
Tryna draw blood from my ice-cold veins
I smell a massacre
Seems to be the only way to back you bastards up

CHORUS: Kanye West
Gossip, gossip, nigga, just stop it
Everybody know I'm a muthafuckin' monster
I'ma need to see your fuckin' hands at the concert
I'ma need to see your fuckin' hands at the concert
Profit, profit, nigga, I got it
Everybody know I'm a muthafuckin' monster
I'ma need to see your fuckin' hands at the concert
I'ma need to see your fuckin' hands

VERSE FOUR: Nicki Minaj
Pull up in the monster, automobile gangsta
With a bad bitch that came from Sri Lanka
Yeah, I'm in that Tonka, color of Willy Wonka
You could be the king, but watch the queen conquer
Okay, first things first, I'll eat your brains
Then I'ma start rocking gold teeth and fangs
'Cause that's what a muthafuckin' monster do
Hair dresser from Milan, that's the monster 'do
Monster Giuseppe heel, that's the monster shoe
Young Money is the roster and a monster crew
And I'm all up, all up, all up in the bank with the funny face
And if I'm fake, I ain't notice 'cause my money ain't
So let me get this straight, wait, I'm the rookie?
But my features and my shows 10 times your pay?
50K for a verse, no album out
Yeah, my money's so tall that my Barbies got to climb it
Hotter than a Middle Eastern climate, violent
Tony Matterhorn, dutty wine it, wine it
Nicki on them titties when I sign it
That's how these niggas so one-track-minded
But really, really I don't give an F-U-C-K
"Forget Barbie, fuck Nicki, sh-she's fake"
"She on a diet," but my pockets eatin' cheesecake
And I'll say, bride of Chucky, it's child's play
Just killed another career, it's a mild day
Besides, Ye, they can't stand besides me
I think me, you, and Am' should ménage Friday
Pink wig, thick ass, give 'em whiplash
I think big, get cash, make 'em blink fast
Now look at what you just saw, this is what you live for
Ah, I'm a muthafuckin' monster

OUTRO: Justin Vernon & Charlie Wilson
I, I crossed the limelight
And I'll, I'll let God decide
And I, I wouldn't last these shows
So I, I am headed home (Headed home)
I, I crossed the limelight
And I'll, I'll let God decide, 'cide (No)
And I, I wouldn't last these shows
So I, I am headed home (Head home)
I, I crossed the limelight (No, the limelight)
And I'll, I'll let God decide, 'cide
And I, I wouldn't last these shows
So I, I am headed home

Show & Prove
Words: Kathy Iandoli
Editor’s Note: This story originally appeared in the Winter 2020 issue of XXL Magazine, on stands now.

In the midst of an ongoing pandemic, the 2020 BET Hip-Hop Awards in October didn’t have the most conventional setup for new artists to shine during its annual cypher segment, yet Flo Milli still managed to take center stage amongst fellow rappers Adé, Buddy and Deanté Hitchcock. The 20-year-old rap wunderkind delivered crafty bars over the late Pop Smoke’s “Dior” beat, unequivocally grabbing viewers’ attention that evening, along with a nomination for Best New Artist. “I think it definitely brought exposure to me,” the Mobile, Ala. native later explains of the moment. “And it was a good step to show people that I’m actually working. I think it’s just starting to like, wake people up.”

It’s been one hell of a year for the 20-year-old rapper on the rise, but given the world’s current climate, that hasn’t stunted her short-term goals. She’s still been traveling after her critically acclaimed debut mixtape, Ho, Why Is You Here?, dropped this past summer, and peaked at No. 78 on the Billboard 200 chart. In the fall, Flo Milli headed back to her hometown of Mobile to visit friends and family and pick up one of her cars.

She turns 21 at the top of 2021, and while she can finally legally drink, her celebration plans are still up in the air, but she wants to bring those friends along for the ride. “Like, I want to go to Turks and Caicos,” she says pensively over Zoom, “but if I can’t go there, I’ll just probably do a mansion party with my friends or something.” Her capricious youthfulness is a sweet cloak over her modelesque looks, though when Flo Milli opens her mouth to rhyme, she transforms into a menace.

Flo Milli is one of a select few rappers bubbling out of Alabama (among them, 2020 XXL Freshman Chika), which is a feat in and of itself considering the state is far from a music industry hub. “In the beginning, all I really had was TV and social media or like YouTube and shit,” the young artist recalls of how she kept up with music on the come up. “For me, it was like, I wasn’t around [music] other than going to church and stuff and that was when I used to sing. But other than that, as far as like, a rap scene, I didn’t have an example or anything.”

Raised on neo-soul artists like Jill Scott, Anthony Hamilton and Erykah Badu, Milli, born Tamia Carter, tempered her soulful palate with a fandom for Nicki Minaj. She started singing at the age of 9 and rhyming at the age of 11. By 14, she was in a group with a few of her girls called Pink Mafia, which eventually dissolved. Though, it wasn’t until she was 17 that she pushed music to the forefront. “That’s when I started to like, actually go to the studio and put out music,” Milli remembers.

Then she had a handful of jobs before rap became her full-time hustle. Milli babysat kids, worked at Ross department store and an AMC movie theater before moving on to Metro PCS during her brief time in college. That job helped her hone her craft on the company’s watch. “I used to always get in trouble,” she admits. “It was like a tax place on the side of us and they would call my manager and snitch on me because I would be making music in there with the speakers and stuff.”

She continued making music over the next year, dropping a series of cuts and gradually gaining momentum. In 2018, her flip of producer Ethereal and Playboi Carti’s song “Beef,” retooled as Flo Milli’s “Beef FloMix,” became a viral hit, showcasing the diversity of her cadence paired with an unorthodox rhyming pattern. “I was like, out of all the songs, this one?! But, you know what, that’s how it works,” she remarks. The track, released on SoundCloud in late 2018, and now has over 60 million streams on Spotify, grew legs on TikTok over the next year, particularly for her sporadic, shit-talking punchlines. “I kind of was just trying new things and my fans responded to that,” Milli adds.

Despite having roots firmly planted in the South, Flo Milli spits bars with no geotag and carries a style that is dynamically disconnected from any region. It’s a trait that she keeps close to the chest, especially in an era where the number of her peers is high but authenticity runs low. While “Beef FloMix” set it off, her 2019 track “In The Party” kept the momentum going (over 66 million Spotify streams), and the record labels came calling.

Skane Dolla, A&R at RCA Records, and Shareen Taylor, A&R at RCA Records, signed Flo Milli to the record label in 2019. “When we met her, it was her look, her cadence on records and her tone for me,” Skane expresses. “She has a little bit of traditional rap—not just rhyming in three-fours like everyone does now. Shareen and I sat down with her; it was like, obviously this makes all the sense in the world.”

They were sold on sight. “She walks in the room and she’s tall, slim-thick frame and this beautiful chocolate skin and this attitude like, ‘I’m that bitch,’” Taylor adds. “The confidence radiates out of her and that’s not something that can be taught or you can buy.”

On Flo Milli’s Instagram account, which boasts over 540,000 followers, countless comments from young girls who are inspired by her self-assurance decorate her page. “It’s giving young Black girls something to be proud of,” Taylor continues. “She helps them build their confidence. It’s almost like she’s the voice for the youth, the misfits, the people that weren’t always included. They feel empowered.”

Now that the rising artist has hit her stride, Milli looks to rappers with a career trajectory such as Nicki Minaj for inspiration while navigating her own dreams. “Nicki proved that you can do this for a long time, you can be on top for a long time and, you know, not fall down,” Milli says. “You could persevere and make history as a Black female.”

As Flo Milli readies her debut album for the coming year, she has some collaborations in the works, along with adding more singing to her songs. It’s all merely a launchpad for what’s to come, which she hopes will include modeling, fashion and even film. “You know, I always knew what I wanted…,” she affirms. “I always knew I was gonna make it.”

We gonna do what we do, we gonna do what we do
Three in the morning, four in the morning, meet you for eggs in the morning

[Pre-Hook: Bebe Rexha]
Oh ain’t nobody going home, you know what you came for
To dance off the pain, don’t feel the shame, just feel the champagne
If you’re feeling lonely, baby let me hear you sing

[Hook: Bebe Rexha]
No broken hearts in the club, no tears in the club
Cause we gon get it poppin’ tonight
No broken hearts in the club, more drinks pour it up
Cause we gon get it poppin’ tonight
We only got one life, so let’s go hard till the day we die
No broken hearts in the club, more drinks pour it up
Cause we gon get it poppin’ tonight

[Verse 3: Nicki Minaj]
Ay yo Bebe, anybody hatin’ need a pee pee
Sip a little Myx, pop pills till I’m sleepy
I’m the one that bust it open out in Waikiki
Pull up in the Ghost, I’m creepy
They don’t want beef, we proved it
Niggas better keep it on wax like a Q-tip
Keep his dick wetter than the cruise ship
Flower than a tulip, flyer than your new bitch
I do’s it, yup I’m up two zip
Girls is my sons, I’m giving them milf teas
They be sweatin’ me, headbands and gym tees
Like bad knees on Dirk Nowitzki’s, it is going down like M. Lewinsky’s
Wrist freeze yep my wrist on pink skis
Ring finger be shitting on my pinky’s
Make em mad, aww man I got them hating bad
Blood clot money green like Jamaican flags

[Hook: Bebe Rexha]
No broken hearts in the club, no tears in the club
Cause we gon get it poppin’ tonight
No broken hearts in the club, more drinks pour it up
Cause we gon get it poppin’ tonight
We only got one life, so let’s go hard till the day we die
No broken hearts in the club, more drinks pour it up
Cause we gon get it poppin’ tonight



Nicki Minaj announced that she is going on tour next year and she has a couple big surprises coming.

Some fans are already thinking that she may announced her new album soon or perhaps announce that she is dating Nas, which we already know that last one. On Tuesday, Nicki Minaj went on Instagram to get some things off her chest about some recent reports over an interview that she did with XXL where she said that she brought back female rap to the mainstream.

Nicki Minaj was complaining bitterly about the media twisting her words to spark controversy, which she thinks is unfair to her. She clarified what she said and at the end of her lengthy statement on Instagram, she revealed that she will be on tour next year and has some big surprises for her fans coming. “See u guys on tour next year. I got a cpl BIG surprises,” she wrote.

The Young Money rapper is currently working on her new album, a project that she says will be career-defining for her. Over the past few months she has been dropping some hints about the upcoming project but nothing concrete like the title and release date or who will be on the guest list. Nevertheless, her announcing this tour is a clear indication that she will be dropping the album soon.

Nicki Minaj covers T Magazine’s Great Issue where she spoke out about having to work much harder than her male counterparts to get the same recognition. “I had so much going against me in the beginning: being black, being a woman, being a female rapper,” she said. “No matter how many times I get on a track with everyone’s favorite M.C. and hold my own, the culture never seems to want to give me my props as an M.C., as a lyricist, as a writer. I got to prove myself a hundred times, whereas the guys that came in around the same time as I did, they were given the titles so much quicker without anybody second-guessing.”


The new book “The Autobiography of Gucci Mane” is now out and the Atlanta rapper has an excerpt in there that touched on Nicki Minaj feud with Lil Kim.

Gucci Mane is winning right now and this year is perhaps one of the best years of his career. He was released from prison last year May and was fortunate enough to get off probation last month. Gucci has never been in better shape physically and mentally for the past year and he is spilling it all in his new book.

One of the biggest takeaways from his biography was when he spoke about the first time that he met Nicki Minaj. “I hopped out of the van and was making my way toward the venue when I saw this pretty girl get off Wayne’s bus and start running toward us,” the book reads. “She was small, no taller than five-two, but right away I saw a big personality. ‘Gucci! I always wanted to meet you,’ she said. ‘I’m Nicki, I’m here with Young Money.’”

Gucci then revealed how Nicki Minaj ran up to him and started talking about being a big fan of his. She even spoke about the remix to his single “Freaky Gurl” and asked him why would he put Lil’ Kim on there. “She told me she was a fan and had even put out her own remix to ‘Freaky Gurl,’” Gucci added. ‘Why would you put a b*tch from Brooklyn on there, though?’ she asked, referring to Lil Kim. ‘I know you got people in Queens. You supposed to have a b*tch from Queens on there.’ For her to know my connections to Queens, she really must be a fan, I thought. The girl was cool. We exchanged numbers and I went inside to perform.”

Seems that incident is from about 2009 when Nicki Minaj just signed with Young Money and was on the come up.


Cardi B claps back at Azealia Banks calling her a hater.

Despite every female rapper congratulating the Queen emcee, yesterday Banks offload a Twitter tirade on Cardi B calling her the “poor man’s Nicki Minaj.” The Harlem rapper also accused black men of selling out for supporting Bardi and even singled out Charlamagne Tha God for helping the song “Bodak Yellow” reach number one on Billboard. Despite the hate there is only one of the two dancing all the way to the bank.

Last night Cari B posted an old photo of Azealia Banks dancing and rapping to “Bodak Yellow” while hinting that its haters like her who help get the song to number one. “One of the reasons Bodak Yellow went #1 cuz even the HATERS LOVE IT,” she tweeted. Before that she wrote on her timeline, “This is the happiest day of my life and no 1 will take this joy from me .I wish you sour patches a good day !Thats how happy I am.”

Several female rappers have congratulated Cardi B on her historic number one. Lil’ Kim, Missy Elliott, Rapsody, Nicki Minaj, Dej Loaf, and Remy Ma were among the list of female rappers to congratulate her. She became the first female emcee since Lauryn Hill to score a solo Billboard Hot 100 number one song.

This is the happiest day of my life and no 1 will take this joy from me .I wish you sour patches a good day !Thats how happy I am .

Lyrics Gucci Mane – Make love

Uhhh, Gucci
Wanna make love, love, love.

King of the skreets
And when these suckas see me, they should bow to my feet
And kiss the ground underneath
I look down at the beef
That shit childish to me
Two hundred thousand to see me
And it’s been sold out for weeks
Can’t brush shoulders with me
These stones in my choker are 2 karats apiece
Look like boulders to me
Damn, who colder than me?
You think he colder than me?
You more bipolar than me
You talkin’ crazy
I’m tryna book Beyoncé for my wedding day
I’m the type of nigga, spend a million on a wedding cake
Niggas hate, but hesitate versuri-lyrics.info
They hate to see ya elevate
I just left out the gym
I’m ’bout to take a swim and meditate
Woooo!
Now it’s time to celebrate
Ask me why I’m smilin’
I say, “‘Cause I make two mil’ a day”
And I might take your b*tch and pay her bills
That’s how I feel today
And I just wanna f*ck
Don’t wanna chill, that’s how I feel today.

I’m makin’ money like I’m makin’ sweet love
I wanna make love, love, love
She say the money make her wanna make love
Wanna make love, love, love, huh.

Ay yo, ain’t talkin’ housewives, but I’m in the Porsche
First I’ma scorch her, then I’ma torch her
Then I’ma torture her, then I’ma off her
A million dollars for a show, they made their off-er
Go against Nicki, it’s gon’ cost ya
‘Cause now it’s f*ck ya, intercourse ya
I rep Queens where they listen to a bunch of Nas
I’m a yes and these b*tches is a bunch of nahs
Tryin’ to win a gunfight with a bunch of knives
I win, get off the bench and give a bunch of fives
I don’t see her
b*tch I’m the greatest, no Kendrick and no Sia
I’m the iPhone, you the Nokia
Everybody know you jealous, b*tch it’s so clear
Tell them bum ass b*tches to play their role
She see my sexy ass every time she scroll
I got it in the can, Dole
Your career gon’ be with Anna Nicole
Witcha dumbass face
She ain’t eatin’ but I swear she got some bum ass taste
Text her man like, “Dawg, how that bum ass taste?”
Pay your rent! And stay in your bum ass place
Oooohhh, oh you the qu-e-e-the queen of this here?
One platinum plaque, album flopped, b*tch, where?
Hahaha, ahhhhhhh
I took two bars off just to laugh
You see, silly rabbit, to be the queen of rap
You gotta sell records, you gotta get plaques
S, plural like the S on my chest
Now sit your dumbass down
You got an F on your test.

I’m makin’ money like I’m makin’ sweet love
I wanna make love, love, love
She say the money make her wanna make love
Wanna make love, love, love, huh.

I love to see the money stack up
Hope that we don’t ever, ever break up
Wanna make love, love, loveee.

[Verse 1]
Uh, what you heard nigga?
Nah, fuck what you heard
I keep two lil goonies on the lurk
My bitch gotta cool lil twenty in her purse
See we was known to air it out first
Told bop, wait let me air em’ out first
They talkin’ bout drugs they ain’t never had work
Lu preach to em’ real nigga church
See I was on the way, started from the bottom now I’m straight
Bout to cop an Audemars Piguet
Yesterday I flew to Saint Tropez
Met a plug yesterday, you know the whole crew ate
Everywhere we go we eat steak
I got my brother with me each and everyday
Most of with me probably tryna beat a case
And if you don’t the other one with licensed with the K
Yeah, know we ridin’ K everyday
Ran up the money had to put it in the safe
I swear its hard to chose mulsanne or the wraith, 4 4 2 you don’t wanna race
Ion’t know why she act different
But when a nigga gone she goin’ miss me
All them muthafuckin shoes all that Tiffany
All them tattoos all them piercings
Momma be stressin’ be patient it’s comin’
Told you your boy was gone make it you know it
We go war with whoever, whoever
I stack that money forever, forever
We put that money together got extra
Pour out the pint man we never gone measure
Whole lot of types I ain’t never gone settle, ain’t never gone settle

[Babbling]
You know
Like I use to risk my life for this shit
You know
You know we really got stripes for this shit
You know

[Verse 2]
This is no phassage, I don’t want no bodyguard
I need me a Nicki Minaj, I need me like two freaky brauds
I’m on broadway, fucked up how they did Mitch in the hallway
I’m fucked up gotta get rich in this hallway
I swear I really got rich in the hallway
My mother lost her sister, her mother lost her daughter
Then my mother lost her mother, then my grandma lost her mother, then I fucked around and lost my cousin
Never thought I never see muffin
Never thought Fellow spot will get busted
Shit fucked a whole bunch of money
Lord save me, save me
Power like a mason, mason
Dreams come true gotta chase it, chase it
If you love something embrace it
The bond we share can’t break it
I’ma give you my heart don’t break it
Me and you girl that’s amazing
If you ever leave I’ll be waitin’
Come back to me girl, I wanna take you and show you off girl
I wanna take you and travel the world
I wanna dip you in diamonds and pearls
Hope I make some, gotta make some
The way we was raised up we might take some
You know a nigga love gettin’ papaer
This a real nigga celebration

[Outro]
Yeahh, yeah
See we unstoppable
You know we done been through so much you can’t stop us
You know
Yeahh, yeah
True story, this is my story
Long Live Nut forever
Yeahh, yeah
This is my story
True story
Hope we make some, gotta make some
The way we raised up might take some
This a real nigga celebration


[Hook]
Now just..
Float, float, float, float,
Float, float, float,
Now just..
Float, float, float, float,
Float, float, float, float,
Too high off the ground,
I’m sitting on clouds,
Said I’m too high off the ground,
I’m sitting on clouds,
I’m too high off the ground,
I’m sitting on clouds,
Said I’m too high off the ground,
I’m sitting on clouds.

[Verse 1]
I’m blowing trees and seeing stars,
I’m as high as Mars is,
No need for cars, I just hijacked Nicki Minaj’s starship,
Set it on autopilot,
Now I’m aiming for Uranus as the target,
So forfeit, girl listen, I’m flyer than Aladdin’s carpet.
Floating in zero gravity, surrounded by darkness,
An intergalactic artist, inspiration is never too far,
It’s within arm’s reach,
This space debris reminds me of all these garbage
Rappers who aren’t as smart as me with these bars,
But, I mean it must be hard
To compete when there’s a martian in charge,
I just stay low, then pop up and kill shit,
People often compare me to Jaws,
For how I just surface and rip everything apart,
If you’re not helping me take over the world
Get blatantly disregarded..

[Hook]
Now just..
Float, float, float, float,
Float, float, float,
Now just..
Float, float, float, float,
Float, float, float, float,
Too high off the ground,
I’m sitting on clouds,
Said I’m too high off the ground,
I’m sitting on clouds,
I’m too high off the ground,
I’m sitting on clouds,
Said I’m too high off the ground,
I’m sitting on clouds.

[Verse 2]
I’m going green,
Getting money and smoking the finest green-leaf,
I was so high if you looked up in the sky last night,
You would’ve seen me,
I be making all of my wishes come true without a genie,
Millions of miles away, but I could come through easy if need be,
‘Cause I’m super-human, I’m not from this Earth,
I just came down to talk to all of your girlfriends
And start rocking their world, literally,
See I can be pretty hypnotic with words,
You’re not going to stop me,
So all your fear tactics are not going to work,
I’m not even close to being done, this just begun,
I’m above your human race,
See I just came from Area 51,
Held a discussion with the Government,
A private conversation,
Sharing new alien technology and top secret information.
But now I need a vacation,
All these things are different since I came through,
So I took a trip in my spaceship,
Now I’m walking around Mars without a spacesuit..
Maybe one of these days I can take you..

[Hook]
Now just..
Float, float, float, float,
Float, float, float,
Now just..
Float, float, float, float,
Float, float, float, float,
Too high off the ground,
I’m sitting on clouds,
Said I’m too high off the ground,
I’m sitting on clouds,
I’m too high off the ground,
I’m sitting on clouds,
Said I’m too high off the ground,
I’m sitting on clouds.

Rappers in they feelings cause they feelin’ me
Uh, I-I give zero fucks and I got zero chill in me
Kissing me, copped the blue box that say Tiffany
Curry with the shot, just tell ’em to call me Stephanie
Gun pop and I make my gum pop
I’m the queen of rap, young Ariana run pop

[Pre-Chorus 2: Ariana Grande]
These friends keep talkin’ way too much
Saying I should give him up
Can’t hear them no, cause I…

[Chorus: Ariana Grande]
I’ve been here all night
I’ve been here all day
And boy, got me walkin’ side to side (side to side)
I’ve been here all night
(Been here all night baby)
I’ve been here all day
(Been here all day baby)
Boy, got me walkin’ side to side (side to side)

[Refrain: Nicki Minaj]
This the new style with the fresh type of flow
Wrist icicle, ride dick bicycle
Come true yo, get you this type of blow
If you wanna menage I got a tricycle

[Verse 1: Nicki Minaj]
Yo, he ain’t messing with no average chick, pop, pop
He got Nicki, he know that he hit the jackpot
Every baller tryna score, check them shot clocks
But I hit ’em with them ‘Bron/Iguodala blocks
Eat the cake and he suck on my toes, yes
Hitting them home runs, I’ll be like “go Mets!”
I want a dude that’ll still kiss me when he mad
Type to cop me diamonds, he can miss me with them bags

Calamari dinners, got you eatin’ raw sushi
Still in the trap, but I like my bitches bougie
Two cups of styrofoam, excuse me lil’ mama
I can hold you down, be your friend and your lover
You want watches, new Versaces, you want Céline
Top back, screamin’ money ain’t a ting

[Verse 5: Rick Ross]
Seeing two G-wagons in my driveway
FaceTime, two black bottles by my fireplace
Fell out with your peoples so you took the pictures down
Instagram ain’t been the same since you so distant now
Took you shopping in other places that I won’t name
First time your friends really got the see Balmain
20 million cash, seen it there with my two eyes
We the best and I told you this back in ’05, (Maybach Music)
