Hip-hop’s self-proclaimed Barbie, rapper Nicki Minaj, released her very first music video as a solo artist yesterday on BET’s 106 & Park. The video is for Nicki’s debut single “Massive Attack” and it features producer/singer Sean Garrett. The Hype Williams directed music video also features appearances from Minaj’s BFF Amber Rose and her boss Birdman (of Cash Money Records, Young Money‘s parent label).
Nicki says she dedicated the video to her other boss, incarcerated rapper Lil Wayne, CEO of Young Money:
“I wanna say shout-out to my baby Wayne, because he’s not here,” Minaj said, sitting in the video’s pink Lambo a couple of weeks ago. “This means the world to me, because Wayne was one of the first people that believed in me.
