The first female rapper to be included the in the annual MTV Hottest MC list, three MTV music awards to her name, a Billboard Women in Music Rising Star Award, the female artist with the most Billboard Hot 100 entries among women of all genres: she’s Nicki Minaj and she’s done it again.
Nicki Minaj’s name before she was famous was Onika Tanya Mara, but apart from this, the girl has always been as crazy as you see her now, when she’s got 21, 4 million followers on Twitter on all the above and more accolades to her name.
So, what is it that makes her so stupidly special? How about 5 million albums worldwide to prove she’s very special. But what is it that makes people sing along to her verses?
In a Graham Norton show back in 2012 when she had only 11 million Twitter followers she answered this very question next to British Comedian John Bishop. She actually replies to her fans on Twitter, and that’s kind of the point/beauty of Twitter altogether.
Back then she was also named the ‘Best female rapper of all time’ by Billboard. keep watching some of greatest television moments in history provided by the BBC when Graham Norton tries out the Nictionary, a collection of words that Nicki Minaj coined herself. Bet you didn’t know what a strawberry shortcake defines in Niki’s head?
So, we guess the word we are looking for in trying to establish what made Nicki Minaj still now the best female rapper of all time, is the word personality: the girl is just hilarious, she’s fun, she’s the girl you want to go out on a night out more than on a date, if even you are a man into girls that is. About dating, let’s turn to Nicki Minaj Instagram for a second to demonstrate how irrelevant that is to define Nicki Minaj’s style.
She’s recently performed at the Bet Awards 2018 and if you happen to scroll through her social media profiles, she’s used some new alter egos, going from Queen and Chun-Li. That’s all because she’s just released her new album ‘Queen’, enjoy! This is Chun-Li and she named it after the female character out of the video game Street Fighter.
They need rappers like me!
They need rappers like me!
So they can get on their fucking keyboards!
And make me the bad guy, Chun-Li
The release actually comes after a 4 month hiatus on social media, something a lot of artists do while they are about to come out with an album.
Then there’s her weird interest for pulling out a British Cockney accent to encourage fans from all over the world to go and like her that much. Is that right? Yes, check it out
Then there’s that elephant in the room we really cannot omit talking about, that’s the crazy outfits. They are so ‘outspoken’ we don’t think she does it to look sexy: hers is more of a game of provoking a reaction, triggering the media, shock us, tempt us to watch more and want more of it.
Watching her teets bursting out of balck PVC isn’t like watching any blonde bimbo twerking whilst singing some lame song about ‘women’s power’, there’s something kitsch about Nicki Minaj that elevates her style, removing it from the sexual sphere even though all you can see in her music videos is her almost doing sex.
Overall, Nicki is one of the best female rappers of all time.
