Rick Ross Recalls The Time He Became A Fan Of Nicki Minaj
'Monster' did it for him...
Rapper Nicki Minaj.
Ross said that he admired her style and flow from the day she laid her verse on the Kanye West Monster track recently.
He told Rap-Up.com: "That was the day Nicki Minaj earned my respect as a lyricist. Before that day, she was a great entertainer but for me, with my own two eyes, to get in the studio and see her write her verse and when I heard and watched her lay it, I knew that was going to be one of the greatest verses of this year as well as Kanye. He said it right then. That was just a big day for hip-hop. Sometimes you her rhyme and at some points it's almost unbelievable and you can't help but think, 'Wow, it must have been a room full of people helping her out with that one' even me as an artist that's considered to be a dope MC.
“But to be in the studio and for me to actually watch and actually watch her get in the booth and rock back and forth the way she do and to hear the s**t she was saying. I tipped my hat off to her and told her right there but just to see the end result and just see everybody's reaction."
