During a recent interview, longtime entertainers: Full Force, went on to celebrate their 30th anniversary of House Party and talk about their very eventful careers. One of those being their time with Nicki Minaj. They went onto explaining how one of their friends turned them on to Nicki’s music and they “immediately said she is dope.”

Paul Anthony also recalled how “before she was big, she was doing all the crazy voices and everything…she even sang [him] a gospel song.” As some of you may know, Nicki started her music career in a rap group called Hood$tars with Paul Anthony’s son and a few others. However, it was difficult getting them a record deal, so they began working with Nicki as a soloist, where they eventually ended up at Warner Bros

Everything was going well until the label shared that they wanted Nicki to have a ghostwriter. In the interview they mention how during that time, they wanted Juelz Santana to write for her, but she refused. Nicki “always had a thing about writing her own sh*t”, which they thought was impressive coming from a “hungry”, unknown artist to not compromise on who she was.

Looks lie Nicki really be about her lyrics! we SALUTE YOU QUEEN!
