Nicki Minaj of Lil Wayne’s Young Money Crew is changing her image and scaling back on the raunchy, overtly sexual mantra that has carried her thus far.

Fresh off the Iron Music Tour with Wayne, Nicki Minaj said she is toning it down and focusing more on her rapping/singing style.

The rapper affirmed she won’t present ass much of the in-your-face sexiness as she has in prior years.

Nicki Minaj is not going to be about sex appeal. I’m always gonna be sexy,” Minaj told, “I’m a bad b***h.”

The Jamaica, New York native, who seemed heavily influenced by Lil Kim, said she won’t emulate her female counterparts.

It’s okay to be sexy but you have to also balance that with your music that’s what I learned and that’s what I’m doing. I’m not the next anybody, I’m the new Nicki Minaj,” she said.

Nicki Minaj recently released a new mixtape called Beam Me Up Scotty.
