Head Barbz in charge, Nicki Minaj is not here for games, y'all. She is just here to slay, and of course, empower other women.

The award-winning rapper has graced the latest cover of Marie Claire magazine. In the mag, Nicki spoke about her career, women empowerment, her friendship with Beyoncé and so much.

Speaking about her career, she pointed out that she can pretty much do anything legendary rapper and music mogul, Jay Z, can do.

"I don't need to read a book about [business]. I can look at someone's career and just pinpoint the dos and the don'ts, and the one person I've done that with for my entire career was Jay Z," she told the mag.

"He did such a great job being an authentic street guy and a businessman, and I was like, 'Why aren't there women doing that, taking the success from rap and channeling it into their empire?' I felt like anything he could do, I could do.”

She also spoke about how she and Beyoncé always inspire women when they work together. Yes, we agree. Remember how their collaborations "Flawless Remix" and "Feeling Myself" quickly became anthems?

"Every time Bey and I do something together, I see how women are inspired, and it has nothing to do with how we look. It has to do with how we are owning who we are and telling other women you should be the boss of your own career and the brains behind your life or your decisions or your art. I just love that feeling."
