Nicki Minaj has a long track record of delivering worthwhile guest verses, so of course, her feature rates are high. On 2014’s “My Nigga (Remix)” Nicki mentioned that she “just got 250 thousand for a verse.” But according to Nicki’s collaborator Davido in 2020, she “be charging people $500,000 for verses.” It might just be worth the money, though. A Nicki Minaj verse can potentially boost your sales and reputation. Doja Cat, for instance, has been building buzz for years, but recruiting Nicki Minaj for the “Say So (Remix)” helped catapult her into a whole new league. Together, they made history by scoring a No. 1 hit and becoming the first two female rappers to top the Hot 100 together. A Nicki Minaj feature does more than just translate to chart stats. She has also been known to draw critical attention to a record. Sada Baby’s “Whole Lotta Choppas” was a successful song, but the remix, which was released in October 2020, helped push the record to even more buzzy critical acclaim. The track didn’t break the top 20 on the charts, but it did find a place in a number of year-end lists. From “Monster” to “Bottoms Up” to “Say So (Remix),” Nicki Minaj’s presence on a track will often bring it to new heights.
