Young Money rapper Nicki Minaj has stepped forward to clear speculation on whether or not her involvement on nine year-old Roc Nation singer Willow Smith's "Whip My Hair" remix is authentic.
Writing on Twitter, Minaj denied linking with the youngster to record her vocals.
"I did NOT do the whip my hair rmx. Sum1 took an OLD verse and put it on the song. :/ original song was called "lookin at me" a year ago," she tweeted Wednesday (October 7). (Nicki Minaj's Twitter)
The track began circulating across the Internet earlier this week.

Southern rapper Rick Ross recently shared his admiration toward Willow.
"It's incredible, I was like wow, she's can't be nine," Ross said with a smile. "It can't be true. But you know, every so often, you find a true ball of talent and that's what that is. She's a young beautiful superstar, it's just written all over her face and just to hear the record, it's crazy." (Rap-Up TV)
