Though she came up with Gucci Mane and rose to fame via Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj says Kanye West is her true mentor, now. "When it came to me putting my album out, I was like 'I can't have an album without Kanye. He has to be a part of it,'" Nicki explained. "He's become my mentor, he gives me advice, he hits me, takes random pictures off-line and says 'Oh this is a good picture of you.' He's really into fashion so he's a good person to have a well-rounded conversation with." Sure, if it's a conversation about Kanye, Kanye's fashion sense, Kanye's short film, Kanye's new album, Kanye deserving to be in the Bible or any of the of the other various Kanye-related topics which Kanye is an expert on.
