Speaking of Young Money, did your labelmate Drake tell you he’d be mentioning wanting to marry you on his verse for “Miss Me” before you heard it?
Nicki Minaj: He told me he said something about me on a verse, but I didn’t think it would be anything like that. He let me hear it for the first time when we did Jay’s show at Madison Square Garden, the day before Wayne had to go to jail—that night he let me hear it on the headphones. But you know what else he told me he wrote for me? The Alicia Keys song “I’m Ready.” I happen to love the song. I never told anyone that, I hope he won’t get mad that I said that.
Then you have Wayne calling you his future wife.
Nicki Minaj: [Laughs.]
You’re gonna have Drake and Wayne fighting over you.
Nicki Minaj: You have no idea how much I love them. We joke around. That’s the thing about Young Money, we will say a lot of crazy s**t in the press but we will get around each other and start cracking up laughing like brothers and sisters. Drake is a playboy. He probably told mad b*****s he wrote them songs for ‘em.
