Nicki Minaj was interviewed recently by former rapper turned podcaster Joe Budden and revealed plans to focus on her entrepreneurial spirit to add on to her legacy as a successful recording artist.

The Queens-bred rapper sat down and discussed various topics with Budden during the interview. She spoke of giving respect to the female rappers who came before her and explained the reason she chose to get cosmetic surgery at the beginning of her career. The conversation also incorporated her fashion sense, being a trendsetter, and her questioning why she or any other rapper, specifically Lil Kim, not getting the chance to be on the cover of Vogue.

Budden also asks about her doing the Swizz Beats/Timbaland competition series Verzuz and, as the general public wants to know, who she would go up against. With various topics including her influence on other artists, and her feeling rappers before her not getting the accolades they deserved, she also spoke of upcoming projects, which include a documentary and potential movie role.

Her business aspirations include following in the footsteps of the artist who signed her, Lil Wayne, who signed her to his record label, Young Money. Not only does she intend on starting her own record label, but she also plans on managing other artists as well.

“I am creating my own management company,” Minaj tells Budden during the sitdown. “I’m also doing my record company. I have a couple of artists that I will start the record company with. I’ll speak on that closer to album time.”

She discloses that Queen Radio is returning on another platform. “I took Queen Radio to another company.”

She does have aspirations to be as successful in business as Jay-Z. Stating that her predecessors should have retired as moguls.

“The female rappers before me, I would always say they should have retired as moguls. And I would say, ‘Why isn’t there a female version of Jay-Z, who at that time, even when I was coming in, we could see that he was on mogul status,” she said. “So I was like, ‘I’m gonna be that person, I’m gonna do that. Even what I’ve done, I haven’t done what I want to do, what I need to do, what I will do yet.”
