Young Money's Nicki Minaj has spoken on Lil Wayne's one-year jail sentence and explained why the emcee is unstoppable.
Although she feels Wayne should not be obligated to serve time, Minaj revealed how the rapper's work ethic has been non-stop over the past few weeks.
"He's such a strong person, and it's weird -- he's sitting there doing videos," Nicki said in an interview. "I found myself e-mailing him about something I wanted him to do for me. When I thought about it, I was like, 'It's so selfish,' 'cause it's, like, what is the mind frame of somebody that's supposed to go to jail for months and never served that amount of time in jail? I don't know. I'm always amazed at Wayne's dignity. Everything he does, he does with dignity. No matter what you throw at him, you can't take away his confidence. Something about him is always like, 'I am still who I am.' That's just dope. This dude is a legend." (MTV)
Drake recently said Wayne's time away from his team will force Young Money to work harder.
"I think that for eight months a lot of us will have to work a lot harder to keep hip-hop as exciting as it's been for the last two years. He's a strong-willed guy. I can imagine it would take a toll on anybody. I just hope that he comes out for the better." (Rolling Stone)
Reports last month suggested the rapper was shooting a "Drop the World" music video with Eminem.

Wayne scheduled time to shoot music videos for Shawty Lo and Playaz Circle in late January.
"Lil Wayne and rapper Shawty Lo will be shooting a music video in Atlanta on Monday. The video is for a song featuring Lil Wayne off of Shawty Lo's upcoming album" a source told NewLilWayne.com. "Lil Wayne will also be shooting another music video the following day with Birdman and Playaz Circle for the record "Big Dawg" off of Playaz Circle's current album Flight 360: The Takeoff."
