Nicki Minaj ‘Massive Attack’ (VIDEO)

Posted: Thursday – April 1, 2010

On the set of her video for “Massive Attack,” Nicki Minaj said she wanted to dedicate the production to her musical family, especially the head of the squad, Lil Wayne.

“I wanna say shout-out to my baby Wayne, because he’s not here,” Minaj said, sitting in the video’s pink Lambo a couple of weeks ago. “This means the world to me, because Wayne was one of the first people that believed in me. He’s not here to see my first video. But he’s here in spirit, obviously. I wanna tell him, ‘I love you very much. Thank you for everything you’ve done for me thus far.’ And to my whole team, Young Money, I love you guys. This is for Wayne and this is for my whole team. Young Money/ Cash Money, we in the building.”

“Massive Attack” dropped earlier this week, and the video lands everywhere on Wednesday night (March 31).

“I brought my BFF Amber Rose out here,” Nicki said on the set earlier this month. “This is a massive attack. We shot the helicopter scene. Obviously, I had to have a hot-pink Lamborghini. We’re having fun in the car, and we see a freakin’ helicopter chase us. So we get on the walkie-talkie, like, ‘Mayday! Mayday!’ It’s really fashion and beauty shots, and we’re acting like we’re doing something important.

“We did a mud scene that’s gonna be spectacular,” she added. “We did a crawling forest scene that was dope. That was shot at night. It’s just beautiful. The clothes, the ambience, it’s really, really pretty. All the girls that like to play dress-up, they’re gonna love this one. We wanted to make it pretty in the dirt. We wanted to have a very crazy contrast. I didn’t want to do everything clean. I like the dirt. All that pink stuff looks even prettier in the dirt.”

“It doesn’t get much bigger than this,” a shirtless Sean Garrett, who collaborated on the track, said on the set. “This is the year we start to take off and take it to another level. ‘Massive Attack,’ man, we ain’t playing no games. We had to deliver something incredibly huge for Nicki, because as you know, her personality is enormous and the records that she’s been on in the past have been very, very hot, but very street records.”

“We wanted to give her something that was global,” he continued. “We wanted to give her something that was urban; we wanted to give her something that was mainstream pop, you know what I mean, that the world could get a chance to see her out on this pedestal. And of course, you know, I had to come along with her, because I’ve got an album dropping soon.”

“I’m glad she’s a part of us, part of our team,” the Birdman said on set, adding that as Nicki continues to blow up, the door will open for more of her female peers.

“You gotta be solid built for this, if you want it for a long time,” Birdman said. “I think you will see more women now, though. I think it’s needed. The women bring a different vibe to hip-hop. I think it’s needed; women bring more women.”

Nicki is still working on her debut album, which has no release date or title as of yet.
