Nicki Minaj Addresses Grammy Performance Critics; Explains Relationship with Scaff Beezy

(AllHipHop News) Trinidadian born/Queens raised rapper Nicki Minaj made a stop in her home town of New York this morning (April 4), during a visit to Power 105's Breakfast Club morning show.

Nicki confronted a number of issues during the interview, including the criticism that she faced after her controversial performance at this year's Grammy Awards.

The performance was lambasted by a number of critics, including the Catholic League's President.

"That was my best performance ever and if everybody didn't agree you can..." Nicki Minaj told the Breakfast Club. "That was my best performance ever, ever. But can I say something, I did a skit on my 'Right Through Me,' I did a skit on 'Moment for Life' video, I did a fighting scene in my 'Fly' video. That was the skit for the 'Roman Holiday' video, it goes perfectly for the song, what don't y'all understand?"

Nicki also addressed her relationship with her right hand man Scaff Beezy, who is Co-Executive of her project Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded.

"He is the reason for 'Did it On 'Em' being on my album, he is the reason for 'Beez in the Trap' being on my album. But he knows lyrically what I am capable of and I keep a small circle and even in the studio," Nicki said. "So that's a point, I have people that I can trust right by my side. That's why he is co-executive producer of the album, because he is the one that got all the beats and he is the one going back and forth with 2Chainz and Cam and we run our own ship. We have a couple of companies together. I don't know what people want me to say."

Nicki Minaj's project Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded is available nationwide and features appearances from Cam'ron, 2 Chainz, Nas, Drake, Rick Ross, Young Jeezy, Beanie Man, Bobby V and Chris Brown.
