Nicki Minaj Recruits Drake, Amber Rose for ‘Massive Attack’ Video

Nicki Minaj is currently flooding the music video circuit on a series of features with artists like Mariah Carey, Ludacris — and next, Usher — but the Harajuku Barbie began filming her first solo video in Lancaster, Calif. on Monday (March 15).

Nicki brought her self-proclaimed “BFF” Amber Rose, along with Drake, Birdman and songwriter Sean Garrett to the set for the Hype Williams-directed ‘Massive Attack.’ She explained the fashionable inspiration behind the props that included pink and white wigs, a helicopter and a hot-pink Lamborghini. “I kinda always like to do things in an unexpected fashion,” she told MTV. “I didn’t want to shoot the typical new-artist vision. Thank God I have a wonderful label that stands behind me and my vision.”

Minaj also explained the new video was the result of a chance meeting with the legendary director, Hype Wiliams. “I met Hype in a freakin’ airport. I didn’t recognize him without his dreads. We exchanged information, and it happened to be a week before I wanted to shoot a video,” she said. “I told him the idea. Of course, I had to let Baby and Slim know and hope they would understand my expensive taste. It all came together. Sean Garrett is on the hook.”

The Young Money rapper is currently completing work on her debut album. ‘Massive Attack’ will be the first single.
