Nicki Minaj is reportedly on the hunt for new management, because she’s parted ways with her longtime team.
Variety broke the news moments ago that the rapper has split from Gee Roberson and Cortez Bryant as well as the Blueprint/ Maverick imprint – all of whom have shepherded the lion-share of her career.
But here’s where things get interesting:
One source says the decision was mutual and amicable, and there was no specific reason for the split, adding that the rapper currently does not have a manager.
A different source tells us that during Minaj’s guest appearance at Ariana Grande’s headlining Coachella set on Sunday night — which was plagued with sound problems — an individual asked where the rapper’s manager was and was told, “There’s no one, she’s looking for new management now.”
Perhaps a new team is exactly what’s needed given the rocky time Minaj has experienced over the last year. Indeed, the run-up to the release of her latest LP ‘Queen’ was far from smooth and her (attempted) touring endeavours have made headlines for the wrong reasons too.
Say what folk will, but there’s no denying the talent Nicki is. So, here’s hoping whatever changes are incoming help steer her career to better terrain.
