As the first lady of YMCMB there’s little introduction Nicki Minaj needs, but if you haven’t heard of this G then you’ve missed one of the hottest hip hop ladies in the game- just scope her hip hop jewelry. Having just become the first female rapper to have moved over 5 MILLION units per album, Nicki’s success has been seen by far beyond the mainstream listeners- as has her hustle.
From mobile games to makeup lines to some of the hottest tracks of the time, this artist is lit and a true influencer of the game. After signing a record deal with Young Money entertainment back on ’09, Nicki Minaj has absolutely exploded onto the scene, appearing on the Billboard hot 100 list more than 44 times and earning multiple BET awards.
What’s most interesting about this rapper is her style- eclectic to some and poignant to others, Nicki can transform from a smooth refined woman with a diamond choker and iced out jewelry diamond bracelets to an extravagant spiked goddess with bling bling jewelry earrings for days. Most of the time Nicki prefers to let her clothing, makeup and personal touch do the talking, in the same way Drake’s style says so much, without ever uttering a word.
Throughout time Nicki Minaj has collaborated with a wide range of artists: from Max B, Ne-Yo, Lil Kim, French Montana, Jadakiss, Gucci Mane, Waka Flocka Flame, Soulja Boy, Rick Ross, Busta Rhymes, Eminem, Britney Spears, Pusha T, Fabolous, Mario, and many more.
Nicki has also been a heart throb in the hip hop community, having dated or inspired rumors with some of the biggest names in the game (Meek Mill , Nas, Drake, Lil Wayne to name a few)-one things for certain, the hip hop goddess is far from done, and we’ll wait eagerly for her next project to drop.
