Rap icon Nicki Minaj is looking for new management to call home. The 36 year old Queens native has officially parted ways with her longtime managers Gee Roberson and Cortez Bryant of Blueprint/Maverick Management, and is reportedly in talks with Irving Azoff and his Full Stop Management group.
Full Stop’s roster includes superstars such as Gwen Stefani, Bon Jovi, The Eagles, Anderson .Paak, John Mayer, and Travis Scott. And ironically enough, Minaj blasted Irving on her “Queen Radio” in the past for trying to sabotage her “NickiHndrxx” tour with Future just last year. She even took shots at Travis Scott (who’s under Irving’s roster) for selling merchandise to promote his album, Astroworld ahead of her album release, forcing her to land the No. 2 spot on the Billboard 200, instead of No. 1 (which he earned at the time).
“There are so many powerful people in this industry who have tried to stop me from speaking up. One thing I won’t do is let people bully me into a corner,” she said. “This Irving man allegedly launched a smear campaign against my tour. He allegedly contacted people in the media to say negative things about my tour.”
It seems as though both parties have put their differences aside and are looking forward to doing business together according to sources. Minaj is expected to hit the road with Chris Brown on a North American tour, which would kick off this summer.
