Nicki Minaj Finds New Manager, ‘Dismisses’ Diddy


Early Monday morning (October 18), breakthrough female emcee Nicki Minaj announced that rap mogul Diddy has been “dismissed” as her manager in favor of industry vet Benny Medina. Medina, who famously managed the careers of superstars like Mariah Carey and Brandy, will be the third manager for the Young Money rapper this year.

According to a statement by Minaj, “By now, everyone should know that I am really strict when it comes to my representation. I had sympathy for [Diddy], however, I feel as if I haven’t gotten the guidance the manager is supposed to give his client. Personally, I feel like I’m being managed by mother. ”

“Even if you play the smallest role on my team,” she continued. “I wish to see progress. I’d like to thank him for everything he has done for me; for taking me under his wing. I wish him the best with repping Rick [Ross]. But now that my album is about to drop, it’s time to get serious and stop playing games.”

This month, Minaj took home 3 BET Awards including Best New Artist and Best Female Hip-Hop Artist. Prior to Diddy, Minaj, whose much-anticipated album Pink Friday is set to drop on November 23, enlisted Waka Flocka Flame’s mother Debbie Atney as manager until April 2010.
