Fendi Is Calling Nicki Minaj a Groupie


Nicki Minaj’s former manager, Big Fendi, is saying the “Anaconda” rapper is nothing more than a groupie who is living large on the identity he created for her.

Here’s what Fendi said on the Breakfast Club:

“I own the trademark to Nicki Minaj. I own NickiMinaj.com. I actually own her trade. So, in a minute you gon’ see a lot of things coming off those shelves.

Nicki’s a groupie, I mean, Nicki jumps from—Nicki started with me in ’06, ’07. I met her on MySpace…Her name was Nicki Maraj when I met her. I changed her name to Nicki Minaj. And I actually got into a big argument with her family because she felt like—Nicki didn’t like the name Minaj. She felt like I was degrading her. Like ‘Oh, you tryna take me to a whole ‘nother situation.’ I was like ‘Nah, they need it for marketing.’ I actually called Jadakiss up. I called Busta up. I was like ‘How y’all feel about Nicki Minaj?’ They was like ‘Oh, that’s hard.’ So, we started off like that.

She’s actually still signed to my production company, which is Dirty Money…It took me 70 days to get the Young Money deal. It was the Young Money/Dirty Money deal. So, when I got the contract Nicki started ducking me. Because Wayne gave me one of those Cash Money contracts from the ‘80s. It was no royalties on it. No advance, nothing. So, I told Nicki ‘Yo, I ain’t signing this contract. I ain’t gonna let you do that to yourself.’ She started crying…Nicki might have got a better contract now.”


Fendi is also claiming that Debra Antney brainwashed Dirty Nicki:

“Debbie called me up two weeks later like ‘Oh, I like your artist,’” Big Fendi said. “Cause I gave her the mixtape. She was like ‘I like your artist. We need to set up a meeting’…Nicki went out there and then Debbie brainwashed her. Debbie got out there—Debbie got her little tactics. Debbie hit her with the ‘Nicki Minaj, I don’t know about that name. He’s trying to take you in the wrong direction.’ So, I’m like ‘Hold on, Debbie. You my homegirl. How you poisoning my artist after I put you on to her’…Meanwhile, my contract with Wayne/Young Money is still moving. So, basically she tried to wait til my contract expired before she signed with Young Money…I still got that contract to this day. That’s what I’m in court with.”



  1. How is the “contract still moving” if he refused to sign it and the artist is ducking him? Hangers on, I tell you. Nicki may be a glorified groupie who may or may not have sucked and f*cked Lil Wayne for tracks and a contact…but this dude looks like a cuckold holding his tallywacker and a useless contract.


    • Spill the Tea, you read that wrong she has a production contract with him. I assume that is what he is using in court. But damn he owns her brand. This sounds like a smart business man not a leech to me. We always hear about artist trying to fake when they make it big. Seems like he was one step ahead of her.

  2. Why do u keep putting these articles up like they’re exclusives??? All people gotta do is go on YouTube.&.watch.the interview!!! C’Mon Sun, LOL…

    • I saw it on the breakfast club the other day lol he is at the radio station with Lil kim. Anyway tho why does he sound so much like Big Freida?

  3. …She is a groupie. Hell, it’s all myself and others on here alone have been saying for years now. And it’s only fitting that she’s on YMCANBCTGIF, as her labelmates Aubreneisha and Wayne are Groupies, as well, especially towards athletes. They all picked jocks to hop on, and apparently ride them pretty well *shrugs*

  4. why so mad? If the contract is expired she did right, she is not obligated to stay with him for life. sheesh!!! who is he again? Never heard of a Big Fendi!

  5. He’s Kim’s manager. He should have let her keep her name after all, she is an illusion, seen one minute, gone the next.

    • He is smart. But even be smarter if he trademark it if she don’t beat him to it. All this is simple and basic economics. That’s all this is. You learn this and its only a ahalf of unit in your 10th grade year.

      • Da, this guy sounds like he just wants his cut. I mean this girl who was clearly marketing a totally different persona when she tried to enter the game (saw the video of her early days, well damn, is that you Nicki?) has been passed around, transformed, and damn near used up by the industry. What people will do for fame. SMH

        Hope it was all worth it Nicki, NEXT!

  6. Gucci said him a Wacka trained Nikki when you.first made to Atlanta in herbroke trying to get put on Days.Sometimes its really what’s in a name.”Minaj”

  7. theres pictures out there and proof that she swallowed Gucci Mane

  8. Nikki sounds like a smart business woman, in this account.. no matter what we may think her career is in the stratosphere right now no matter who doesn’t like it.. she has made moves that you and I did not and I can respect a least that much. He is the groupie here. Not Nikki, not today.

    • Nikki is the one jumping from crew to crew. Deb Anty played Fendi and Baby played Deb — guess whose in the middle of all this bs… Nikki… yea she made me moves that we did not. Guess what? We won’t sign 360 deals – sell ourselves out – backstab ppl and suck dick and eat coochie to get put on.

  9. Nicki Mirage is the crab in the trap…Bees In The Trap! Big Fendi gave her fair warning, that’s all he can do. A contract in the music bizness is no better than toilet tissue on our backsides… Squeeze The Charmin! The demise of sanity is what we’re witnessing in HD Vision. So clear, it will put us in a trance… My Eyes Deceive Me! Wayne and Baby about funny money, shook money, slave money. Big Fendi a free man, his girl, i can’t say.

    • lol @ nicki mirage. yes Tyrone. some of these brotha are able get out of the dirty politics side of the music business. God just gave this brotha another chance at this life. Like crazychris pointed out in another post on Cashmoney. Baby and Slim has a long hit list of folks he had to wack off on his way to the top. But lets be honest this situation is a typical pimp and hoe situation. nicki wanted the rich life so bad that she allowed herself to be pimpped out and tricked out by Fendi, Baby, and keyshia and her old manager. sad.

      • you know i find if it kinds strange how a year ago no one knew who iggy azaela was and all of sudden she blew up and now nicki feels threatened. nicki should feel like a chess piece because their playing the ish out of her.

      • Truthfull, and I have to say it, unfortunately, might be the beginning of the end for old Halle.

    • I saw, and it’s just as well–Halle was miscast in that role, anyway. Storm is a strong, tough, intelligent, leader-type, and, of course, sexy DARK-SKINNED character, and prissy, self-important, mixed Halle couldn’t embody all of those characteristics if she tried…Not that she got many lines until the third movie, but still. Good riddance.

  10. He is an unprofessional misogynistic bastard.
    He needs understand he is not their owner,and they are not chattel slaves.
    Nicca you did some work, but at the end of the day a contract never stood on stage and rapped. When paper contracts and pipe dreams start rapping and doing concerts I will buy a ticket to one.
