Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj is hard at work on his third album, The Pink Print, which Cash Money Records boss Birdman recently discussed.

In an interview with Billboard, the hip-hop mogul said his artist’s forthcoming project is shaping up to ber her strongest work yet.

“For the new album, she’s doing what she feels like doing and we’re supporting her,” said Birdman. “You hear a lot of growth in her music. She’s coming confident and hard. We expect for this to be one of the biggest [albums] from her.”

He also said she’s going to really showcase her skills as an emcee this time around. “It’s more rap. This album is going to have a little bit of everything but more rap,” said Birdman.

Nicki has yet to record any collaborations, but is expected to in the coming months. A release date has not been set.

“She’s definitely coming this year,” Birdman said. “She hasn’t picked a date yet. Tha Carter V will definitely come before Nicki’s [album].”
