At this point, a lot of folks would probably consider Nicki Minaj more of a pop artist than anything else, but that's not changing the way she's approaching her next album.
In an interview with DJ Whoo Kidd, Nicki said her next project will be a classic Hip Hop album.
"My goal right now is just releasing this fourth album and watching my fans react to it," she said. "Because I know it's going to be my best body of work ... Obviously, I'm not telling them when my album is coming out, but I just know that it's going to be amazing because I want to thank the people who rocked with me all these years ... I gotta impress them ... So that's next on my bucket list. To deliver my fourth album and make sure it's a classic Hip Hop album that people will never forget."So does that mean Nicki's next album will be void of big sweeping pop hooks, and she'll be spitting more bars instead of singing? Furthermore, do you think she should make a harder edged Hip Hop album or stay in her pop lane?
