Sometimes when we see rappers flex their fancy whips, mansions and fashion steez, we forget that that’s the perks of their hard labor. Years before their musical fortune, they were struggling artists just working to pay the bills like the rest of us. You could’ve ran into some of these hip-hop heavyweights back in the day when they were folding sweaters or serving entrees.
Just to show you how far they’ve come, here’s where these eight rappers were working before they were big. In these cases, we’re glad they quit their day jobs.
1. Nicki Minaj
Nicki Minaj was actually fired from her job at Bronx Red Lobster for, let’s just say, less than stellar customer service.
Grammy weekend is the hectic weekend in February every year where music’s biggest stars converge in Los Angeles for the annual awards show. While that means you can see celebrities left and right, it also means any petty ongoing beefs can come to a head at any moment. That’s exactly what happened when Birdman showed up at Nicki Minaj’s Pre-Grammy party at last night.
Stunna arrived at 1:45 AM looking to get into the club and was denied entrance before ever really getting close to the door. As you can see in the video, the bouncers call the police over for assistance and have a bit of a heated conversation with Birdman and his entourage.
TMZ says the reason he was denied is because the club was already closed and that could be true because liquor can’t be served in California after 2AM ,so most clubs do close around that time. However, at around the 1:05 mark you can hear someone saying what sounds like “Nicki said she don’t want you in.” Listen for yourself and be the judge.
If she did indeed make the remark, it definitely gives more weight to the rumor that Lil Wayne is looking to take Nicki (and Drake) with him if/when he leaves Cash Money and also gives a hint to which side Nicki’s taken in the whole ordeal.
Former Hot Boy Turk looks to sue Cash Money for unpaid royalties.
As a former member of Hot Boys, Turk’s fortunes didn’t exactly pan out like Lil Wayne’s after the group fell apart. It looks like him and Weezy still have a few things in common though, because they’re both looking to sue Cash Money. With Wayne currently asking Birdman’s label for some $51 million in damages related to a delayed Carter V release date, Turk’s suit pales in comparison, but is still pretty substantial.
TMZ reports that he’s asking for $1.3 million in unpaid royalties. According to the gossip site, Turk is claiming that Birdman and Co. did some “shady accounting” and didn’t disclose his full earnings. Lil Wayne, he’s also asking that his Cash Money contract be voided.
Meek Mill and Nicki Minaj have officially confirmed that they are both dating each other.
The couple was spotted at Diddy’s Super Bowl party on Sunday and they were kissing and all over each other.
“They came to the party holding hands and were pretty much inseparable for most of the night,” the source told us.
“Meek was such a gentleman, he was attending to her needs like getting her drinks and all that stuffs you can tell they are in love with each other especially when he plant a kiss on her,” the source revealed.
Meek Mill and Nicki Minaj have been dating for a few months now after her highly publicized split with her boyfriend of 12 years Safaree Samuels.
Last night Nicki Minaj posted a photo of herself getting a kiss from Meek Mill on her Instagram. That photo has since gone viral.
But things has not been all smooth sailing for the couple who have reportedly broken up twice since they started dating late last year.
Over the weekend Nicki Minaj got booed while dissing her ex-boyfriend during a pre Super Bowl performance.
Sources told us that she is still in love with Safaree Samuels.
Lil Wayne wants out of Cash Money, and he’s taking Drake and Nicki Minaj with him.
The Young Money chief plans to sue Birdman for his release from Cash Money, and also claims that Birdman owes him an $8 million advance for his album Tha Carter V.
In addition to demanding money, TMZ reports that Wayne will sue Birdman to ensure that Young Money’s artists remain under his control.
In addition to Drake and Nicki, this includes the rest of the Young Money roster—Christina Milian, Lil Twist, and Mack Maine, who doubles as the label’s president.
Weezy believes the artists should go with him because their contracts are with Young Money.
Cash Money has a distribution deal with all of Young Money’s acts. The issue will likely have to be settled in court, but Wayne is adamant about taking his crew with him.
He also seems confident about Drake and Nicki’s loyalty to him. On his remix to “CoCo” off his mixtape Sorry 4 the Wait 2, he boasts, “I ain’t trippin’, I got Barbie, I got Drake too.”
