Rapper/Producer/Entrepreneur NICKI MINAJ is one of six covers for the 2016 TIME 100 MOST INFLUENTIAL PEOPLE In The WORLD!!!

Here are some interview interludes:

On being her own boss, being professional, and being compensated:
“One thing I learned along the way in business is the necessity for you to be unapologetic about asking for how much money you deserve. At a very early stage in my rap career, I was making six figures for shows…If I heard there was another rapper making that, I thought, ‘you know what? I get out there and demand or command a crowd. I get out there and make my fans happy. I get out there and give a real show. I want that, too.’ And I pushed myself to be better with my showmanship, but I also decided, you know what? I want to be compensated well.”
On encouraging women to stand behind their work, and their work ethic:
“I would tell women starting out in business, if you know you’re great at what you do, don’t ever be ashamed to ask for the top dollar in your field. If I’m great at what I do, I can’t be denied. Some things may be overlooked but no one can deny my brand, and that’s the words of wisdom I would give to other young women.”
On working with BEYONCE', and feeling the impact that they have on other young women:
“Whenever I do something with her, I can feel the impact online, and in the venue, wherever we are. It just feels like young women are being empowered and inspired because I think it says a lot when you see two young women at the top of their field, whether they’re black or white, it just means a lot when you see them owning who they are and owning the business.”
