Nicki Minaj assured fans her label will include more versatile artists in the future. She also touched on her early days bright before officially signing by Lil Wayne “I understand the importance of having somebody else doing the heavy lifting for you. I understand why people are coming out and they’re so, you know, microwaveable and they’re here today and gone tomorrow because there’s no structure. There’s no real person that believes in them. That’s like, ‘Nah, I’m gonna make it my business to see you shine.”
