[artist id="3055069"]Nicki Minaj[/artist] is steadily building a rep as one of hip-hop’s most unpredictable artists with her ever-changing Day-Glo hair colors and collaborations with everyone from [artist id="3235468"]Robin Thicke[/artist] to [artist id="976"]Mariah Carey[/artist] to [artist id="961097"]Ludacris[/artist].
With the buzz about the “Massive Attack” MC’s upcoming debut album heating up, fans are on the lookout for who the Young Money Barbie may work with next. As one of the biggest stars to come out of Queens in recent years, a collabo with Southside titan [artist id="860639"]50 Cent[/artist] might be a logical step. However, Minaj said that despite sharing a hometown, she and Fif haven’t come across each other yet.
“Our paths never crossed, and it’s weird,” Minaj told DJ Envy in a recent episode of MTV2′s “Sucker Free Countdown.” “I did meet [Lloyd] Banks, like, once or twice before.”
Even if Minaj is planning a major Queens anthem with 50 Cent, she’s keeping the details under wraps. “If there is a big surprise, I’m not gonna tell you, Envy,” Minaj teased. “I know everybody will know by the time I say it. You gonna tweet it and stuff. It’s gonna be on the radio. I mean, why would I tell you that?”
If a Minaj/50 collabo did go down, the rising star would have something else in common with fellow femcee Lil’ Kim, who has been taking shots at the Young Money diva. Kim and Fif worked together on the raunchy hit “Magic Stick” from Kim’s 2003 album, La Bella Mafia.
Catch more Nicki Minaj with DJ Envy on the “Sucker Free Summer Countdown” from Boston’s 94.5 Summer Jam, this Sunday, June 20, at noon ET only on MTV2.
