Nicki Minaj’s ex-manager recalls quitting just before she scored the biggest hit of her career: ‘I was like…, Oh my God’

Nicki Minaj’s former manager Sickamore has recalled quitting on the rapper just before the scored one of the biggest hits of her career.

“She had this VIBE magazine shoot, you know, it’s like a two-page spread, and she had a diner, and she got to the place, and I wasn’t there, and she didn’t have no trailer,” Sickamore, who was Minaj’s manager in 2007 and 2008, told VladTV.

“She had to change in the bathroom, and she called me like flipping out — as she should — and then I was cocky. I was like, ‘Man, I don’t need all of this. Just don’t worry about it, you can find your own manager.'”

Sickamore said that after his outburst, Minaj tried to fix things, but he didn’t want to.

“So she calls me back. She gave me an opportunity. She’s like, ‘Are you sure? Like, you sure you know what you’re doing?’ And I’m like, ‘Yeah, my own mother don’t talk to me like this. I’m not going to let anybody talk to me like this,'” he said.

“So we handled business. It was like a little bit of money or whatever. We cleaned that up, next thing I know, ‘Super Bass.'”

Released as a single in 2011, “Super Bass” made it to No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming the highest-charting song for a female rapper without a featured artist since Missy Elliot’s “Work It” in 2002. To date, “Super Bass” has sold over 12 million units worldwide.

Sickamore concluded: “I was just like, ‘God damn.'”

Sickamore attends the Academy Award and Multi-Grammy Nominee Ludwig Göransson's Grammy Celebration on February 7, 2019 in Los Angeles, California.

Last week, Minaj announced the launch of her own record label.

“There’s a big announcement coming. Well, I have a record label now,” the 40-year-old said on the latest episode of her “Queen Radio” show.

“I believe so strongly in loyalty, and because I’ve spend my whole life giving to others that turn around and shit on me.”

Minaj did not reveal the label’s name, but did reveal some of the artists who will be on its roster, including Nana Fofie, Tate Kobang, Rico Danna, and London Hill. Minaj’s longtime friend Patty Lauren, also known as Patty Duke, will be the artist relations representative for the label.
“Don’t think my label is just rap, or Black, or anything,” added the rapper. “We got some other genres of music.”
