Nicki Minaj Fires Diddy as Her Manager

Nicki Minaj wants to take her career to the next level and she doesn’t want any help from Sean “Diddy” Combs. Minaj was rumored to have signed a management deal with Diddy sometime last year, but it looks like she’s skipped out on the hip-hop mogul and has gone with management company Hip Hop Since 1978 instead.

XXL.com is reporting that the Queens native fired Diddy because he wasn’t “hands on enough,” and signed with the management company owned by Gee Roberson and Kyambo “Hip-Hop” Joshua. Ironically, Roberson and Joshua once worked on Lil’ Kim’s 2005 debut, ‘The Naked Truth,’ when they were employed as A&Rs for Atlantic Records. Kim and Minaj have been engaged in a verbal beef for the last year or so, with the brunt of the blows coming from the Queen Bee, who feels that the 26-year-old jacked her style.

Past history aside, Minaj’s new representation has a pretty good track record, which includes managing Kanye West, Young Jeezy and her Young Money family members Drake and Lil Wayne. According to sources, despite her new business decision, her relationship with Diddy appears to be in tact as the two parted ways amicably.

This is the most recent shake-up in Minaj’s management team, but not the first time that she has hired and fired people on her team. The rapper was originally represented by Debra Atney, mother to Waka Flocka Flame, whom she fired in 2010.
