'Pink Friday' rapper now shares management with Drake and Lil' Wayne

Nicki Minaj has left P Diddy‘s management company, according to reports today (May 17).

The rapper, who has sold over 1.5 million copies of her debut album ‘Pink Friday’, is now being managed by the Hip Hop Since 1978 management company, who also look after Lil Wayne, Drake and formerly Lil’ Kim.

According to hip hop magazine XXL Mag, a source has said that the split is amicable and that Minaj took the decision after she realised that the hip hop mogul wouldn’t be able to devote the time to managing her career that she had hoped he would.

Neither Minaj or Diddy has issued a formal statement about the split. Diddy, along with partner James Cruz, had managed the rapper since the spring of 2010.

Nicki Minaj is set to support Britney Spears on her new ‘Femme Fatale’ US tour, which starts in Sacremento, California next month.
