Recently, Nicki Minaj spoke out against new artists who copy established musicians.

During an interview with Jada Pinkett Smith for Interview magazine, the rapper said times have changed since she started out and that artists retain their originality.

"What I'm seeing now is that so many new artists are trying to become the person they looked up to instead of giving us a new flavour," Nicki explained.

She added, "I know I could see so much talent in some of the new artists but they lose me when I'm seeing the person who they are trying to be like, or sound like, more than I'm seeing who they are."

"So if I'm hearing too much of that artist who already has hits out, when I'm finished listening to your song or watching your performance, I'm going to play that artist," the star continued. "I'm not going to go and look more into you, because you've just reminded me so much of the other person. Now you just woke up all the other hits that they had in my head, and it's later for you."

Nicki then encouraged all artists new to the scene to believe in themselves and keep trusting that they are the superstars people wanted to see.
