Nicki Minaj's Success Is A "Beautiful Thing"
Her mentor Lil Wayne is very proud of the Barbie girl...
The Young Moneyrecord label in 2009, claimed to our US Team that since he first saw Nicki on street DVD The Come Up, he feels "honoured" to have watched her grow as an artist.
Speaking of Minaj's stint on his I Am Still Music tour, Weezy admitted: "I promise to God, you know what I thought about? When I saw her up there just walking and everybody singing her stuff and she making all those facial expressions, I was just like, 'I remember watching that DVD'."
The 6 Foot, 7 Foot rapper added: "When shorty was in the tub. I remember watching that and where she came from and just to know not that I did that, [but] that she did that. I mean, it's a beautiful thing."
Earlier today, Weezy also hit the headlines following reports that he has been forced to cancel plans to tour the UK after his work visa was denied by British immigration officials.
