Los Angeles - Nicki Minaj has promised to release a new mixtape.
The Anaconda hitmaker's last freebie was 2009's Beam Me Up Scotty and now, six years on, Nicki feels it's the right time to make songs that will set an "example for female rappers" who want to top the charts.
She revealed: "I'll definitely drop a mixtape. I have to. Well, I want to touch a couple of beats that I wasn't on.
"I could have bodied a lot of the records that came out in the last year. But the main thing is, I have to set an example for female rappers. I'm at the top of that food chain, and it's important to lead by example."
And the brunette beauty also thinks it's important young stars remember the importance of releasing mixtapes, because once a hit single is out of the charts you are "no longer hot".
She told Billboard: "And because I came into the game doing mixtapes, I want to make sure women do not forget the importance of that grind, that walk up to the top.
"You can't get there with a song. Because once that song is no longer hot, you're no longer hot. It's important that you are bigger than your music.
"Some fans are going to fuck with me for the rest of my life because they know where I came from. Fans know my struggle. How hungry I was. That I was not settling, I was not giving up. I was on everybody's beat. I was ruthless."
