Lil Wayne's protege Nicki Minaj has a new mentor - Sean Combs is now managing the Young Money star's career.
Minaj fired her manager Debbie Antney earlier this month (Apr10) after a three-year working relationship - and now she's turning to rapper/entrepreneur Combs to give her guidance.
According to, the Bad Boy rapper stepped in to handle her affairs after Minaj unsuccessfully sought management from Lady Gaga's minder, Troy Carter.
Combs is said to have asked one of his own staff, James Cruz, to help him co-manage the Bedrock star.
