Nicki Minaj, an award-winning rapper, has said that she underwent physical enhancement surgery after Lil Wayne made her feel insecure.
She recalled how the ‘A Milli’ hitmaker used to ridicule her for not having a luscious rear like the girls he usually brought to the studio when she was younger.
Nicki Minaj disclosed the reason for her BBL during an appearance of The Joe Budden podcast hosted by rapper Joe Budden.
However, the 40-year-old expressed regret for enabling others to put pressure on her to have surgery in order to feel whole.
She said that Wayne used to bring different endowed ladies to the studio during each session and they often talked about their body, and it made her feel like she did not fit in.
According to the Super Bass crooner, the reason it hurt her was because the jokes came from Lil Wayne, who is someone she looked up to when she was just coming up in the industry.
Nicki said that she was made to believe that being a lady with big curves was what she was supposed to look like in the Hip Hop culture.
She said that though Wayne was teasing her, she took it seriously but he never knew that the things he said made her uncomfortable and influenced her decision.
