In a recent interview, Tony Yayo said Nicki Minaj should be down with G-Unit.
The G-rapper also claimed that G-Unit passed on an opportunity to sign Minaj back in 2002..
“We could of signed Nicki Minaj,” Yayo revealed in an interview. “It was just [a matter of] time and opportunity. We could of signed Keyshia Cole too, I was locked up [during] that — she does represent South Side Jamaica Queens, Nicki Minaj. She came up with a down South artist because she was managed by Waka’s moms, right? I never crossed paths with her. Yeah [she should be with G-Unit], she’s from South Side Jamaica Queens, h*ll yeah, she should be the with Unit. That should be her swag from South Side Jamaica Queens, a bulletproof vest on Nicki Minaj. [laughs] That’ll look great.”
Lloyd Banks recently praised Nicki Minaj saying,
“I would go with Nicki right now,” he said in an interview. “Yeah, I like her as an artist. We came up in the same era, we were around the same age so I’m pretty sure one of her influences was probably Lil Kim and nothing is really reminding of the impact Kim had, since Nicki came. To have a concert and have a hundred Nickies in the front row… not too many new artists come and have a following like that. So you definitely have to acknowledge that.”
Nicki is in a great situation with Young Money, Yayo knows G-Unit was too grimey for Nicki Minaj back in there bullet proof vest days.
