Waka Flocka and Nicki Minaj go way back.
Shortly after the Harajuku Barbie moved to Atlanta, Waka's mother and manager, Deb Antney, began handling her business via Mizay Entertainment. Antney also manages Gucci Mane.
As previously reported, Nick fired Antney back in April. Speaking with Respect Magazine, Waka remembered Minaj's early days with Mizay Entertainment.
"She probably learned some sh*t off me and I learned a lot off her," Waka told Respect. "We've been around. That's what got her blown up--she can connect to her fans...Everybody was trying to f**k her. Everybody. Nicki wouldn't mess with anybody. I swear to God, she came here focused. Came all the way here focused. She was smashing tracks. Every track she on, she had the hardest verse."
