Young Money rapper Nicki Minaj recently talked about her business strategies and why she makes calculated financial decisions.
"I had a dream that I should go with [Lil] Wayne and that's what I did. I've never regretted it. Now...I mean I'm just a business savvy person by nature and I weigh out all my decisions. The average person hears $50,000 and jumps. I hear $50,000 and, you know, I need an explanation with it. I need details, and I'll probably be like that about $50 million. Most artists at my stage in the game don't have a business manager. I have a business manager. I'm talking about and looking over my finances on a regular basis. I'm not doing this to be flashy I'm doing this to secure wealth. Not cash. They're two different things. I've made calculated decisions and people don't always understand my process but they always get it later...I'm wrong every now and then but I'm usually right when it comes to things like that."
