Nicki Minaj spoke to MTV about the beginning of her careers, and talks about how Lil Wayne even mistook her for being shy. She said she was very carefuly not to sleep her way to the top, and had to be a bit of a prude when she started rapping, and working with other male artists.
“When I started being around Young Money, Wayne thought I was shy, but it wasn’t that I was shy, I just didn’t want anybody to think I was easy,” the female rapper said. "No matter what my lyrics were saying, when I got around these guys, I was a prude, because I didn’t want anyone in this game to ever be able to say ‘I had sex with her’ or ‘when she needed a deal, she had to…’ No."
Nicki says she prides herself on the fact that no man in the industry can say that, to this very day.
