's sophomore effort may come sooner than expected. Cash Money co-CEO and founder reveals in an interview that the recent American Music Awards winner is looking at the first quarter of 2012 for the follow-up of her first album "".

"Nicki's back in the studio, so we're looking to drop Nicki in the first quarter," Birdman told Billboard. As for the first single, Birdman predicted that it would come out real soon because the rapper is already in the recording process. "Maybe this year? I don't know," he said. "We're really thinking it out. But she's in the studio, and we're looking real soon, because she's ready to go and we're ready to go with her."

There was a rumor earlier this month that she would release recorded material as her gay male alter ego Roman. However, Minaj's blog post about the project was eventually removed from her official site.

In the meantime, Birdman also talked about Minaj's label mate who is promoting his November 15 album "". A music video for -assisted track "The Motto" has been shot with possibilities of video treatment for Minaj-featuring "Make Me Proud" and -featuring title track.
