Nicky Minaj has throughout her career been an artist who plays by her own rules. Whether it be lyrics to her songs, the way she dresses or underdresses if you catch my drift, her sometimes racy videos, or even the fact that she is a woman in a man’s world (rap), Minaj has mapped out her own career.
You have to take the lady seriously outside of the revealing and outrageous costumes and that cartoon character voice. She is a serious talent. A great wordsmith and rapper, Nicky Minaj is fearless. Born in Trinidad she moved to Queens, New York and then signed to a record label in 2009. A rare female hip hop artist that has found her own niche within that highly competitive and testosterone laden world.
She released her first album in 2010 called Pink Friday. It was a smash hit that debut on top of the albums chart. Showing that she was not a one hit wonder, her follow up in 2012, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, was just as successful. Most recently she released her third album, The Pinkprint, in 2014. You know her songs like “Anaconda”, “Starships”, “Pound the Alarm”, and “Super Bass”.
Besides her music career, Nicki Minaj has also done a stint as a judge on American Idol and has started an acting career starring in films like The Other Woman plus the upcoming Barbershop 3 and provided a voice in Ice Age: Continental Drift.
