The Young Money Barbie doll is preparing to drop her highly anticipated album “Pink Friday” on November 22, 2010! Can the gorgeous rhyme spitter live up to the hype? While Nicki has stated many times that she worked on her own album, meaning no help from Lil Wayne or label mates, will the album lack in sales because of it? Nicki Minaj, who is releasing her first album, seems very confident in the selection of songs she placed on the anticipated album. Unlike her label mate Drake, who has gone platinum and beyond, Nicki has a multi-gender as well as a multi-culture fan base.
Unlimited guest appearances and extreme sex appeal have taken the 26 year old Nicki Minaj to the top. For those that doubt her talent and skills on the microphone, you’re in for a big surprise when her album drops. After hearing much criticism about her “crazy” and “sparatic” voices, Nicki chose to switch her rap style up. Where are the other female MC’s? Not since the days of Lauryn Hill has a female MC made such an impact. The female MC’s today seem to be missing in action, or are scared of the new competition, Nicki Minaj. While female MC’s like Trina and Foxy Brown have attempted to make a comeback, Nicki Minaj is still the talk of the town! Is it her sexy voice and coke bottle frame that causes so much attention or is it the amount of respect she demands in a field surrounded by men?
When it comes to Nicki Minaj and skill, you cant say the phrase “She’s good for a female” because it doesn’t apply to her. The early mixtapes Nicki Minaj released catapulted her to the spot she’s at now and most of all, it earned her respect in the music industry. With her new album “Pink Friday”, she plans to revel the new generation of female MC’ing at its finest. Album features such as Eminem, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Drake and Kayne West are sure to take the album directly to the top 10 on Billboard. Even after all of the controversy, with changing management and missing the Lady Gaga tour, Nicki Minaj has made a name for herself both as a music artist and international icon. The Young Money leader, Lil Wayne, has to be proud of the investment he’s made in Nicki Minaj and Drake since both have pushed their careers to the next level. When the album “Pink Friday” is released on November 22nd, all eyes will be on the “Barbie Doll” Nicki Minaj.
