Nicki Minaj spills the tea in her new Billboard Magazine cover story. The “Anaconda” rapper talks about the challenges of being an artist and businesswoman at the same time. She speaks about how Beyonce’s work ethic inspires her and what she enjoys doing when she’s not running her empire. In the Billboard feature, Nick Minaj also speaks about rappers who get settled too quickly:

“It’s corny when rappers feel like they’ve made it and they don’t have to prove themselves anymore. You should always be competing. You should always be trying to show that you’re the best. My album is going to be important to hip-hop.”
