Nicki Minaj certainly knows how to get people's attention. First she deletes her Twitter account leaving behind 11 million followers, now she is talking about leaving the rap game altogether.
In a new interview with Tim Westwood, the Harajuku Barbie expressed frustration with the response her latest album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded has gotten. The disc debuted at No. 1 in both the U.S. and the U.K., but the sales figures (253,000 U.S.) weren't as high as some expected for the opening week and more than a few critics have given the disc poor reviews.
"People aren't even giving the kid props for taking it back to the essence," she said in one of her many accents. "This is my fourth mixtape really. The kid did it like that to feed her fans. But really, now the kid is thinking maybe she should leave the game."
At that point her hype man Safaree said people are ungrateful.
"Not my babies, not my Barbz," Nicki replied. "But these other folk finna make the kid leave the game."
