Nicki Minaj feels important
Nicki Minaj thinks her voice is "very important" to popular culture, music, and the world
Nicki Minaj thinks her voice is "very important" to the world.
The 31-year-old rapper has taken a two-year hiatus from making music and says her time away made her realise just how important it is for her to continue to strive to be a "mogul".
She said: "I realised that my voice is very important to pop culture. It's very important to hip hop culture. It's just... very important.
"I can't stop, I have to complete this mission. When I came into the game, i said I wanted to be a mogul and a lot of my fans want to see that come to fruition."
Despite her self-confidence, Nicki was stunned when she was asked to remix '***Flawless' for Beyonce recently.
She said: "I got a call to do a song with Beyonce. I'm getting out of my Maybach, about to get in a private plane, and my manager calls me saying, 'Beyonce wants you to remix '***Flawless'.'
"It was the one thing I never thought would happen in my career, and I was like, 'My life is f***ing surreal.' "
The 'Super Bass' star also admitted she is still astonished by her collaboration with Eminem, 2010's 'Roman's Revenge'.
She told Dazed and Confused magazine: "It was witty, it was skilled, it was punchline after punchline after punchline.
"It featured Eminem! When I listen to it now, I can't really believe it - that record took f***ing balls."
