Customer Review

on January 5, 2011
I was mildly excited about this album as I have heard Nicki Minaj's work on some other Young Money albums and found her style of machine gunning witty lyrics refreshing, however. Popping this album into my car I was immediately disappointed; first and foremost the lyrics are just brainless, she uses idiotic metaphors to discuss superficial topics which seem to blend well with the modern hip hop zeitgeist. I can almost forgive this transgression, however, aside from the idiocy of her topic's, her vocals are way off you can tell a ton of auto tune was used and she modulates and shifts her voice from annoying to more annoying, I understand from some of Nicki's good verses (on other peoples albums) that she does change cadence and intonation and it happens to be something I am a fan of, when it sounds good, this doesn't. She sounds more drunk karaoke singer than an actual musician in these instances. The final problem with this album is the production, many of the beats seem phoned in using a variety of synths and technology instead of real musicians, furthermore these beats are simply cheap imitations of the same things we have heard before. Avoid this clearly Nicki is happy attempting to be modern hip hop's Lady GaGa and attempting to convince fans that superfluous topics are profound.
