Tyga, 2 Chainz & Mac Miller cover the latest issue of The Source magazine. Leaders of the new school?
The feature story, titled “Hey Young World” takes a close look at 2 Chainz, Tyga, Mac Miller, and Kendrick Lamar’s burgeoning careers. Each artist sat down for an exclusive interview with The Source, to discuss leading his own movement. 20-year old Mac Miller silences the naysayers by doing what works best for him, saying that his fan base is “growing wider than people give me credit for,” while newly signed Def Jam artist 2 Chainz says he’s “hungry like that younger me” and Tyga even admits, “most of my fans are from 12 to 25.”
Nicki Minaj covers the February / March issue of Vibe magazine. Below is an excerpt from her interview. Issue hits news stands next week.
VIBE: You’ve said before that you didn’t really have fun recording Pink Friday.
Nicki Minaj: I felt like I had something to prove to everyone who said a female rapper could not make an album unless she was talking about her pussy. And so I went above and beyond to prove that I could not talk about sex and not talk about my genitalia and still have a successful album. And I proved that. And now my time for proving things to my critics is over. I don’t really need to prove anything to anyone else anymore.
