Kanye West proclaimed Nicki Minaj as the “scariest artist out right now” in an interview with Angie Martinez on Hot 97 earlier today. During the interview, Angie Martinez asked Kanye West who he looks to as someone who makes him work harder. He responded:
This is such a big statement and such a big thing to fill but I think the scariest artist in the game right now is definitely Nicki Minaj and I think she has the most potential out of everyone to be the Number 2 rapper of all time. Because nobody’s gonna be bigger than Eminem. Eminem is the #1 Rapper of all time.
When Angie Martinez asked him to elaborate on what he meant as biggest artist (ie in terms of sales, fan base, etc) he responded:
Everything! Having a whole network one day. Everything that comes with it. [#2] to Eminem. I’m just dealing with reality.
Kanye then slipped and said “She has the mentality to do it. The verse that she did on…” before he stopped mid sentence, realizing that he wasn’t suppose to give details on his album. (Earlier in the interview he slipped and revealed the album would come out on November 16th).
BET’s Stephen Hill already let the cat out of the bag earlier this year when he told Rap-Up.com that he had heard some tracks from Kanye’s album and there was one track featuring Nicki Minaj that was “so dope!”. “You won’t believe it when you hear it“, he told the website.
I loose respect for Kanye when he says things like this..... I mean Nicki Manaj is good at best, but to say she has the potential to be the 2nd best rapper of ALL TIME. What, better then Jay Z, Nas, Biggie, Snoop ???? Homegirl cant even do a show without spitting over here own vocal tracks...watch below.
