Nicki Minaj to Return to Her Hip-Hop Roots on New Album

Nicki Minaj

With all her recent pop success, the rapstress has decided to go back to making hip-hop music on her next LP.

In a new interview over at Hot 97 morning radio show with Rosenberg, Cipha Sounds, K. Foxx and Old Man Ebro, rapstress Nicki Minaj revealed that she would be returning to her hip-hop roots on her forthcoming third album. Saying she has no regrets with moving more towards the pop route in her recent albums, the 30-year-old superstar is going back to the artist that she was before she dropped her debut album "Pink Friday".

"If I really wanted to right now, I could go back in and make another pop song like ['Starships'] to sell all this stuff, and I'm choosing not to do it," the hip-hop siren told host Peter Rosenberg and the gang. "I'm choosing to get back to my essence and just feed the core hip-hop fan."

Amidst all the talk about the entire "American Idol" judging panel being totally overhauled for the next season, Minaj deemed her judging gig inclusive of her feud with fellow panel member Mariah Carey something that had its own share of benefits. "Now looking back, I can say, 'Hmm, they're very calculated. They knew a lot of things, but they gave me a great opportunity.' ... I did have a good time."

Hot 97 invited her to this year's Summer Jam, but the "High School" artist could not readily confirm her participation as yet. Minaj was set to appear in last year's annual hip-hop fest but she pulled out of it after Hot 97's Rosenberg dissed her chart-topping hit "Starships". The two have since made amends right there and then on his morning radio show, with Rosenberg clearing the air before proceeding with the Minaj interview.
