Nicki Minaj is doing what it takes to make The Pinkprint a classic. The rapper called into DJ Drama's Shade 45 radio show on Valentine's Day to talk about her upcoming album, which will not include her alter ego Roman.

Nicki says she's putting her myriad of outside ventures and interests, like fashion, on the back burner while she completes the effort. "I'm just working on the album. Nothing is gonna take precedence over that," she says. "Nothing matters to me more than creating a classic album right now. All of that can wait. I don't care about none of that. We at home, working it out." Listen to the full interview below.
