On Monday (Feb. 10), Nicki Minaj's long-awaited Queen Radio once again aired. Her fellow Jamaica, Queens native 50 Cent stopped by for a surprise visit and took a trip down memory lane. During the show, Nicki asked Fif why he didn't sign her before she went with Lil Wayne and his 'Young Money' empire.
50 Cent revealed that the reason he passed on signing her was because of her former manager Big Fendi, "That's the only reason why I wasn't saying nothing or checking real hard for her (Nicki) because he was over there." For the ones unfamiliar with Big Fendy, he is largely credited for discovering Nicki during Fif's early 2000's run. However, the two fell out eventually causing Nicki to seek elsewhere to further her career, ending up with Debra Antney, the mother of Waka Flocka. "Now he's is a little seasoned," 50 said about Big Fendi. "He knows how to keep the relationship the right way. Back then, he was being Fendi." Listen to Fif & Nicki down below.
