Nicki Minaj Says She Convinced Kanye West Not To Appear On "Right Thru Me"
The Ye-less track hit No. 3 on Billboard's Hot Rap Songs chart.
Many artists would do anything for a Kanye West feature, but according to Nicki Minaj, she convinced Ye to not appear on her "Right Thru Me" track for her debut album, Pink Friday.
We all know how much Kanye hates the word "No," so it was shocking when Nicki tweeted her "Blazin Fun Fact" claiming she had to beg Kanye to change his mind about appearing on her track.
Hooks I freestyled in the studio: "Blazin" Fun fact: Kanye REALLY wanted to get on RIGHT THRU ME. I had to beg him to change his mind.

Kanye has praised Nicki during interviews acclaiming her "Monster" verse as one of the best on his My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy album, so we can believe he respected Minaj's wish to omit him from the track. Although Ye didn't get his verse off on "Right Thru Me," he still appeared on her Pink Friday track, "Blazin."
The Queens MC has had tremendous success since her entrance into the music world and recently surpassing Aretha Franklin for the most appearances by a female artist on the Billboard Hot 100. It is safe to say Nicki knows what she's doing, even if it is turning down a Pablo feature.
