On Thursday night, Nicki Minaj joined Angie Martinez in the Hot97 VIP Lounge for their long-awaited first interview…..and it was as juicy as I expected.

Part 1: Nicki talks about being excite not nervous for the release of her debut album, Kanye calling her the best rapper, not comparing herself to other rappers and more

Part 2:
Nicki talks about getting into Hip-Hop, her early influences, and addresses Lil Kim (“Roman’s Revenge”)“[Kim] just really jumped out of the window and you got to be careful when you pick fights. That’s what I learned in this business. You just never know. I think people get me mistaken with like a real Barbie… they forget where I’m from. If I have to revert back I can, and I will. Don’t play with me. I respect you and love you. I’ve said it in every interview, time and time again. And if that’s not good enough for you mama, then it’s something deep rooted in you. Something is bothering you inside….”

“Put your music out and when I see your name on Billboard that’s when I’ll respond to you. Other than that. Goodbye!”

Meanwhile: Foxy Brown must be feeling left out. She recently dropped a freestyle over Gyptian’s “Hold Yuh” (which Nicki remixed earlier this year)….and threw her shots at Nicki (and Lil Kim?) as well: “Bad Gyal, we nah wear pink here….”After the jump…

(Andrew/FakeShoreDrive posted this clip of Nicki’s event in Chicago, where there was some discrepancy as to whether she was booked to perform or just do a club walk thru. I respect the fact that she sets things straight and pulls no punches. Lol @ the pure Chi-town accents “Close the doe!”)
