She may have bust the windows out of her man’s car, but Nicki Minaj’s music career is unstoppable. The, “Only” femcee covers yet another magazine with the latest issue of Billboard.

Nicki talks about her active participation with her behind-the-scenes career choices, and why it’s, “corny” for artists who’ve made to think that they no longer have to prove themselves.

“You should always be competing. You should always be trying to show that you’re the best,” she says. “My album is going to be important to hip-hop.”

She Works as Hard Behind the Scenes as On Stage
“I’m on 15 to 25 conference calls every few days strategizing with my team. I think a lot of artists sit back and have it done for them,” Minaj tells Billboard. “Sometimes as women in the industry — if you’re sexy or like doing sexy things — some people subconsciously negate your brain. They think you’re stupid.”

She Follows Through on Long-Term Goals
“I was just a little kid in Southside Jamaica, Queens, hoping one day I would have my own perfume,” Minaj tells Billboard of those days when fame was a very distant possibility. “And now I have three.”
