Report: Nicki Minaj Shared Drama Teacher With Azealia Banks/Labelled ‘Unambitious’

Published: Tuesday 8th May 2012 by David

You might not know this, but Nicki Minaj and Azealia Banks have more in common than their ‘dissaproval’ of Rap veteran Lil Kim.

Yes, while you may know they both attended Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School, many are unaware they shared a drama teacher in a Mr. Harry Shifman.

A Mr.Shifman, who claims to have mentored both ladies during their time at the school.

Now, years after they graduated,he was weighed in on the ladies.

His comments below…

On Minaj he revealed::

I don’t remember Nicki having the level of ambition Azealia manifested to me.

His remarks were published in an interview with Azealia published by Vibe Magazine today, and come hours after the Harlem native performed at the 2012 MET GALA, replaced by Minaj who was forced to pull out of the event for reasons yet to be confirmed.

Adding to his statement, the drama teacher explained:

Azealia is a pretty extraordinary talent.

Sure to spark even more comparisons between the pair, Shifman’s remarks arrives years after both Rappers almost shared a manager in Troy Carter, the mastermind behind Lady GaGa.

In 2009, Minaj reportedly welcomed Carter to a joint management deal with one time boss Diddy. However, in an interview with Celebrity Access in 2010, Carter admitted ‘it just wasn’t the right thing’ but went onto sign Azealia in April of this year.

Catch both MCs at this year’s ‘Hot 97 Summer Jam’ which Nicki will be headlining.

  6. BEEZ IN DA TRAP May 8, 2012

    Azealia Banks is a BI-POLAR B****. first she came in the game dissing Nicki for attention and d*** riding Lil’Kim. Now she’s dissing Lil’Kim and has the nerve to follow Nicki on twitter. She paid that teacher to say that irrelevant ass s*** about Nicki because if Nic was’nt ambitious then how did she get where she is today? THIS AZEALIA BANKS B**** HAS MENTAL PROBLEM’S. How da f** she gonna p*** off Nicki & Kim’s fans and think she’s gonna win. Bye Girl

  7. DaHotNig May 8, 2012

    @jimmyblanco A pay RISE? Enough said u stink moist c***!

  8. mONSTERHIVE May 8, 2012

    If Azealia had the level of ambition he claims she has the girl wouldn’t go around dissing everyone that she thinks is a threat to her. As much hype as this dude put”s on Azealia she better sell 375 thousand first week & have at least 3 top ten singles.

  9. fuckazelia May 8, 2012

    Shes never going annywhere kim fans hate her nicki fans hate her thats already over a billion people that hate hewr

  10. skintightjeans May 8, 2012

    ooooooh noooo b****! Azealia looks a hot drag queen mess in that pic. Not impressed mmmkay???

  11. Woo May 8, 2012

    @QueenOfTheNavy What are you talking about? Lil Kim finished college and i’m pretty sure to finish college you have to finish everything else…

  12. fuckazelia May 8, 2012

    Even nickis picture looks better than that banjee dirty wig wearin hussy her music sucks she will never have a num one album i want her to die slow #literally

  13. Woo May 8, 2012

    @FuckAzelia Don’t forget Kreayshawn’s fans, T.I’s fans, and Iggy’s fans.

    Ambition is what Nicki Minaj is all about. How many artists have accomplished what Nicki has done in less than 2 years? She’s worked with the likes of Jay-Z, Kanye, Mariah Carey, Eminem, Britney Spears, Madonna, twice. Performed at the Super Bowl, & the Grammys. The first female artist ever to have 7 songs on the Billboard charts at the same time. The first female rapper to have a number 1 album in the UK & Japan. Have endorsement deals with MAC, OPI, Adidas, a Pepsi campaign & 2 #1 albums? That’s not ambition right?

  15. DEREKBREEZY May 8, 2012

    Get Ready… It’s Time!!

  16. Sucks2BU May 8, 2012

    right…cause Nicki has proven she has so little ambition…

    Cough cough :: you’s a lame! :: cough cough

    Drama teach must not have looked up since the 90’s came Nicki’s got a hell of ambition and so far A** has got bi-polar disorder.

  17. Os May 8, 2012

    not because Nicki wasn’t showing much Ambitions in school don’t mean she didn’t mean she wasn’t going to be ambitious she is clearly showing it now that she is very ambitious,nicki is a go getter she is a very hard worker and obviously a late bloomer meaning she got her chance to go mainstream got signed to a major label late..i Co-Sign you NATURALBEAUTY everything you said is true and nicki is hands on all of that,she isn’t complacent stagnant are a person who is a procrastinator she get it done and jump on any opportunity that comes along.

    nicki wouldn’t be at the level she is at now if she wasn’t ambitious,like i said the the nicki that teacher is talking about is completly different from the nicki we are seeing now,and for banks to have so much on common with nicki with ther pa-s she should have reach out to nicki from the get go not try to dis her,nicki earn her respect even though she isn’t in the mean long like others she put in work,even though some people be acting like they don’t see it,the fact of the matter is nicki did and is still doing her thing.

  22. Uhh Okaii May 8, 2012

    not all some

  23. Kyle May 8, 2012

    As of right now, I am definitely feeling Azealia more because she is new and just has a natural, organic, quirky style. I feel like Nicki has molded into a sell-out pop star:( I loved her like 2 years ago.

  24. Justathought (Azealia Banks is here) May 8, 2012

    @KingPhoenix I agree with everything you said

    Damn some of y’all sound hurt lol. That’s what the man saw, clearly Nicki has ambition he just saw a different level of it in Azealia. @ TGJ Nicki will be headlining summer Jam? Uhh I’ll take it you’ve never been to one….there is no headliner lol.

  25. kingphoenix May 8, 2012

    @Justathought

    Thanks Bae.

    And Sam is English, he dont know nuttin’ bout no summer jam! But why is Nicki trying to regain her black audience…Its done! Bet she wont be wearing them green wigs and them crazy ass costumes…she has become so transparent. smh

  26. Justathought (Azealia Banks is here…) May 8, 2012

    @KingPhoenix
    No prob you are always on point with your comments

    I’m from NY and truthfully there aren’t many checkin for Nicki (urban crowd) anymore. So seeing her at Summer Jam this year may be a little interesting. Def can’t wait to see Azealia tho

  27. The Zolonski Trap May 8, 2012

    Azealia who??? oh yeah, that b****! well good for her…nobody really cares about her tho but i guess..she needs to just go on with something else because her music is NOT poppin!!

  28. kingphoenix May 8, 2012

    @Justathought

    Azealia makes Nicki look like an amateur on stage….I think Azealia has the potential to become the rap version of Beyonce when it comes to that stage….but not dancing wise.lol. Even though she has the cutest two step and switch i ever did see!

  29. Bum Slayer May 9, 2012

    Wait…. did you peep the end they will both be at summer jam. but NICKI Is Headlining lmaooo azealia could never. if she had so much ambition she would have #1 albums and in 11 countries :/ sorry.
