Birdman: Nicki Minaj is a female Lil Wayne
The American rapper sees similarities between his two Cash Money Records acts - and he praised the 'Super Bass' hitmaker for improving her music ''so much'' in recent months.
He told Complex: ''I just came from listening to her album. She's grown so much as an artist. She's so talented that this s**t is scary. Like, wow she really is the female Weezy. Hands down she bad.
''Her talents, skills, and what she done with her music and the way she is in front of a camera. She's just so talented to be so young. It's a brand new style. I'm just so glad she's on our team.''
Birdman is excited about Wayne's forthcoming album, 'I Am Not A Human Being 2', which he confirmed is ''definitely'' completed and is expected to be released later this summer.
He added: ''Wayne's got an album he's about to drop real soon. Its called 'I am not a Human Being 2'. It's gonna be before the summer for sure. We haven't picked the date yet. Whenever he's ready to drop his album, we're gonna make it do what it do.
''He's definitely got an album done and ready to go. Wayne works a lot. There's no telling [if 'Rebirth 2' will happen]. But I know for sure we've got 'I Am Not A Human Being 2' ready to go. That's the next project.''Posted on 27 Jan 2012 06:30 to category : Music News
