Nicki Minaj sure wasn't lying when she gave major props to her legal team in the radio hit "Make Me Proud." In addition to her sweet endorsement deal with MAC makeup, the Young Money rapper has just landed a multi-million dollar deal with Pepsi.

To top off the amazing news, Minaj has also released her European tour dates.
