Nicki gets up close and personal for the cover of the Fader Fall Fashion issue, photographed by Joao Canziani. The cover is set to hit stands August 26th. She reveals everything from her early start in her career, to her speech at the BET Awards about female rappers writing original lyrics. Her album, “Pink Print”, will be released soon as well.

Nicki on her early beginnings:

“I think early on in my career, I was… I was… just a little bit crazy. I think one of my best attributes now, as a businesswoman and an artist and a professional person, is being able to think before I speak. I’ve learned that everything I think doesn’t necessarily need to be stated.”

Nicki on the cut-throat industry:

“I can only imagine how many people in this business have died because they may not have wanted to… to be embarrassed publicly. We care so much about what the world thinks that we don’t live, really. But what had happened to her? Had she fainted or had a panic attack? I don’t even want to talk about it.”

Nicki on female rappers and original lyrics:

“My point of saying what I said was that women need to have a perspective. If we’re out here saying that we’re so confident, and we’re so this and so that, but we don’t even trust ourselves to write down our own thoughts and spit it on a beat? It just doesn’t add up.”
