REASON #2: Nicki Minaj could learn a few things from Missy about how to do crossover pop records without alienating hip-hop fans.
Now, you know we love us some Nicki Minaj. But, we will say this about her. Some of her big pop records—including her recent hit, "Starships"—have not been received very well by some hip-hop fans. They're "too" pop, they complain. Oddly, that was never really an issue for Missy. She made a lot of records that climbed to the top of the pop charts. But they never felt like blatant pop attempts. So, if she could manage to start doing that again, it'd push Nicki to do the same. Having some worthy competition is always important and that's something that Missy could provide for Nicki. We think it'd work out for the best for both of them.
