Diddy’s pockets are getting a little fatter now that he’s rumored to have been put in charge of managing the careers of Nicki Minaj and Rick Ross.
According to our source, Minaj subsequently went on to seek management from Troy Carter, Lady Gaga’s manager. Although some websites claim to have confirmed that Carter is co-managing Minaj with Diddy, our source says it isn’t the case and that Gaga pumped the breaks on the deal, threatening to find another manager if Carter took on Minaj as well. When that happened, Carter stepped back and Diddy stepped in, asking one of his own managers, James Cruz, to co-manage Minaj with him instead.
While Diddy’s new connection with Nicki Minaj seems to have come out of left field, it comes as no surprise that he is also working closely with Rick Ross. The two have been appearing together often lately, including on the remix to Waka Flocka’s “O Lets Do It” track. Diddy has also praised Ross’ rapping skills in public as of late, comparing him to the late Notorious B.I.G. “Big shout out to my brother Diddy. We have a big announcement to make real soon, so stay tuned for that,” Ross said on the airwaves during an interview with Power 105.1 DJ Envy earlier this week, alluding to an official announcement of the business move coming soon.
