Nicki Minaj

Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, the second mainstream album from the rapper Nicki Minaj, debuting at No.1 on the Billboard Hot 200 Chart last week, selling 81,000 copies on her second wind, bringing Roman Reloaded’s total sales to 334,700. The album features the star-studded likes of Lil Wayne, Drake, Nas, Young Jeezy and 2 Chainz. Nicki Minaj is, line for line, one of the wittiest, most creative rappers working today and her many personas and voices fly through her songs with joyful abandon, and she seems to be having so much fun. On the effervescent, minimally invasive bounce track “Beez in the Trap,” Minaj plays the queen of a hive, with Atlanta rapper 2 Chainz buzzing around her. The Trinidadian American rapper from New York City offers repeated evidence of her talents, and she delivers funny, biting, bawdy lines and rhyming couplets with apparent glee.Nicki has a personal style that defies all the rules of fashion instead of wearing the same frocks as other stars she dons curve-clinging jumpsuits, bright ensembles, pompom dresses and insane wigs, “I won’t wear red. I have always been a pink girl and I feel like red is the anti-pink,” says Minaj. The worlds most colorful rapper, Nicki has certainly found her place in the entertainment industry.
