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.
