According to reports, the 35 year-old rapper has gone as far as getting a Nicki Minaj look-alike for her video for the single as well as for her other track, “Clap, Clap”.
Here we go again…I wonder what Nicki Minaj has in the works for Ms. Kim…

Jay-Z Invests in Brooklyn-Based Chicken Franchise
Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter has added a food franchise under his belt and his business empire. The rapper turned mogul recently teamed up with his sister, Andrea, mother, Gloria and cousin, Jamar White in a new fast food venture. The 41-year-old has invested in a Brooklyn-based chicken wing restaurant Buffalo Boss, with his cousin as the co-owner.
The eatery also does more than sell organic chicken wings, fries, salads, wraps and soft drinks. Sources say that Jay-Z and Buffalo Boss will be rewarding exceptional middle school students with free food. Nothing like a family-business affair and giving back to the community! Pretty dope.
