Nicki Minaj on new album: 'I'm at such a different place now as a human being'

Rapper Nicki Minaj has been working on her new studio album, 'The Pink Print', and revealed that it will really 'surprise' her fans because she's in a 'different place' than she was when she brought out her last offering. 

Speaking to AMP Radio, Minaj explained that she feels as though she is a stronger artist now and believes this is reflected in her forthcoming new record:

"I just have to say that I’m at such a different place as a human being. I know artists say that all the time but now I understand why. Nothing really surprises me anymore."

"I handle things more maturely. Just writing-wise I can put my thoughts together better I feel."

She went onto talk about the sound of the album, adding that friend and Canadian hip-hop sensation Drake had a preview and admitted he was 'proud' of her progress:

"So sonically I think the album sounds so amazing. And there are so many surprises on the album. I had Drake come by the studio the other day and he was like “Omg, you’re talking about new stuff, I’m so proud of you.” And that’s what I’m most excited about. I’m speaking about new things on this album. I’m excited I’m not allowing anyone else to define what the album is going to be. I’m comfortable, its not going to be rushed, I’m taking my time. But overall the music just sounds really, really great. There’s no substitute for that."
