Nicki honed her innate ability and star potential at the renowned school of performing arts which was denoted in the movie and television series FAME. It was not long before she began to attract the attention of local producers and hip hop artist in the rap genre. Reluctant at first to cast herself, as a rapper her apprehension was predicated on the thought that the industry would attempt to limit her to one thing; when she knew that she was so much more. Decidedly, Nicki accepted the challenge and embarked on the journey of a female emcee in a hip hop world dominated by males.
It was not long before her lyrical skills were sought after by the likes of Lil' Wayne. Nicki was determined not to befall the ill-fate of so many other talented female rappers. Instead she opted to qualify her lyrical skills through the ranks of the underground mix tape circuit. Success was inevitably achieved with her critically acclaimed performance credit on the DVD entitled "The Come Up" and mixtapes like Playtime is Over, the infamous Sucka Free, and Beam Me Up Scotty. Now in demand Nicki's role expands as a featured artist and female persona of Lil Wayne's record label Young Money Entertainment. In addition, she has a worked with celebrated recording artists Mariah Carey, Gucci Mane, Drake, Usher, Bobby Valentino, Ludacris, Robin Thicke, Jadakiss and Sean Garrett.
The evolution of Nicki Minaj continues as she exploits her talents as a singer and explores her passion as a writer. Nicki is currently, in the studio recording her first album (due out in Fall 2010) which will feature some R&B and Pop songs. Of equal importance, she is also engaged in writing new materials for herself and other artists. Nicki is also considering several acting roles. Nicki is the previous winner of the Underground Music Awards (UMA) female artist of the year and past Southern Entertainment Awards (SEA) female mix tape artist of the year nominee.
This is definitely a pop album, but that doesn't inherently make an album/artist bad.
I was never a fan, or did not want to buy this cd, But a friend at work told me to check it out, and to say, I am glad i did, I LOVE IT, If you dont like it, ok.
It could definitely end the album very well and it's a really good song with a great sample, lyrics, and beat.
The vinyl is pink, which is fantastic and it plays beautifully. This is also hands down her best album. The creators did a great job making this a vinyl.Published 14 days ago by Hannah Brisson
I really enjoyed this CD. I am not much of a rap fan, but Nicki delivers ballads and songs as well as rap. However, the rap she does have is not bad. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Astrid

|Kim is better then this no hit wonder.||
well that's expected - nothing fires up an artist in this industry more than beef. Been the formula for many for years. Before it was all "oh I'm not talking about her" and what not. No doubt someone got in her ear and told her to start responding directly to increase awareness and... Read More
