"I was like, this female here is amazing. She'd be amazing for my label as well, and so that's when I knew I wanted to sign her, as soon as I heard her, as soon as I saw her. Get me in contact with some girl named Nicki!" - Lil Wayne

"I was with her the day the album dropped. And, I was just amazed. I was like my best friend, that I knew since we was seven or eight years old walking around the street has a freaking album out!" - Minaj's childhood friend,Tyesha Kollore
