Who is Nicki Minaj?

Did watching the much-talked about "Saturday Night Live" with Jesse Eisenberg and Nicki Minaj leave you curious about the boisterous rapper, who clearly has a sense of humor? Never fear - we've compiled a few notes on Minaj to give you the rundown.

      Sorry to inform you of this but there are intelligent and creative Hip Hop artist. Greed has made Hip Hop a joke and people don't take it seriously because they don't expose many of the real artists in the genre.

    If Lady Gaga was a Transformer then Nikki would be a Gobot
    If Lady Gaga was Target then Nikki would be a yard sale
    If Lady Gaga was a Cadillac then Nikki would be a rusty Gremlin
    If Lady Gaga was Disney World Nikki would be a county fair on a rainy day after the tilt-a-whirl broke

    I find her voice very eloquent, and her style of rap as a way of properly presenting a form of poetry. And yes, she is certainly very beautiful. Nothing wrong with the fact that she is attractive, no need to disregard the young lady's talent for that reason.

    She can't even touch the likes of Roxanne Shante, MC Lyte or even Lil Kim. She doesn't have enough lyrical originality to out shine those three. Wigs, I think she's got Kim beat. And when is Mattel going to sue her for the use of the name Barbie and the likeness of the printed word? Needless to say, I don't buy her music, don't want to; so I will not be making her rich on my dollar!

Pac, Biggie, Missy Elliot, L'Boogie, Salt 'n Peppa, Lauryn Hill, Foxy Brown, Lil Kim, Da Brat, Jean Grae, Queen Latifah, Rah Digga with Flipmode, Eve ... THOSE were female rappers with a message. Dang good music! I MISS THAT ERA!

    • Huh

      I'm disappointed with rap in general. While Nicki has experienced great success I'm not impressed with her as a lyricist and her beats are mediocre at best. I think of rap like Tribe Called Quest, Common, MC Lyte (she's definitely one) and even Lil' Kim, none of the rappers of today could compare. The crap they produce today is simply put “pop”. They’re not saying anything significant and their beats whack on top of that. Nicki is a wonderful performer, but lacks true artistry. After all in today’s music world, you don’t actually have to have talent, you just have to be somewhat attractive and rest follows.

    God has given white people until 2012 to find another planet to live on,” Jacobi Ail said in a sermon given across his network, Sunday. “Can he return to his birth place in the Caucasus Mountains for protection? No. There is no place upon the earth ultraviolet light pierce. Many will note 2012 as the date the great and ancient Mayans predicted the destruction of his world. Now, by the grace of God, they have found that God is permitting them the opportunity to escape to any planet outside our solar system before the Ultraviolet Holocaust of 2012.”

    The interesting thing is that she has CNN's attention!!!! How would this be if she is not talented? What would make one of the worlds largest news programs cover her story? Its not because she stinks, its not because she is talentless. American people are so judgmental of how others live there lives and how they carry themselves but often forget to look at themselves and realize thats what makes us great. We have the freedom to do as we please. Get over yourselves and get a life.

    Hopefully, HOPEFULLY, she'll be a has-been by next year. I'm sick of hearing her on almost every track. She doesn't deserve that much radio presence, but she's the only one available right now. If I hear her annoying voice on a song, I turn the channel until it's over. She's tacky, not cute and overall trying too hard to make herself "edgy". Silliness.

    I am amazed at the true lack of respect that each person not only has for this young lady, but themselves in responds to this post with degrading remarks toward this young lady. Each of us has our own personal opinion, (that can be formulated in complete sentences that sound intelligent) but for those who had to be crude in their response in a public forum where our young teens and young adults may read should be ashamed. I just truly hope and pray that if you have a child that aspires to be in the public eye that they are not subjected to such hate and lack of respect for having the courage to go out and do what Ms. Minaj is doing. Continue to do your best Ms. Minaj and your aspirations and dream will come true.

      You need to take a class or two in basic economics. She's not stimulating the economy. When money leaves your wallet and lands in a corporation, with a few cents dribbling her way, all the stimulation is in one direction and society is receiving zero benefit.

    I saw her on SNL and I think she was pretty funny in the skits, but her music performance was terrible... I mean, really, really bad.

    I really do not agree with her being the next top MC, There are plenty of more female rappers out right now such as Reverie from Los Angeles, Jean Grae just to name 2. Nikki is the lady gaga that really who isnt relevant to real life but just selling an image...

  77. fired up

    I'm so tired of these lame chicks with the wack lyrics. She has no more talent then a skunk. She sets a bad example for all little girls. Look dumb, act dumber, and show your ass to get where you wanna be. Women, we are better than this and we need to stop letting tricks like her make us look bad. We have come to far to be disrespected.

      I agree totally. This girl is wildly overrated. I guess all you need nowadays to be considered "talented" is a pretty face and a booty pads.

    While I'm not a big "rap" listener – calling them idiots is just wrong. They are artists – and many are amazing writers. Just because its not your thing doesn't mean you need to insult them.

      Sorry, but rap is for idiots. It is not music and it sounds awful. Very depressing.

      While I agree with most of he comments about trying to be different than what they are, Her ancestry is of East Indian and Afro-Trindidad.

      @Caesar Actually, being A Trinidadian my self she is more that just that. People from Brazil and Trinidad are very mixed.
      Afro-Trini just means you can tell she has African blood. Almost all "Afro-trinidadians" have Indian blood, in adition to European, Native, and Asian ancestry.

      Nia Long, and Gabrielle reece are also of Afro Trinidadian decent.

      Either you are a bored multimillionaire who's decided to grace us all with his opinion, or you're a bigger idiot for not cashing in on your apparent mastery of the Hip Hop art form. You know, I met some of the biggest idiots in my lifetime at Grad School? Useless fact of the day for you.

      A nice open minded, sensible response. She's reinvigorating the female rap game. She's very talented, and very humble to be where she is as one could see by looking at some of her interviews. I love listening to this woman!

      Thank you for speaking the truth. Who is Nicki Minaj? Over-rated. She's a decent rapper at best who can barely sing. All style and no substance. You want proof? Watch her "performances" on SNL. You can honestly call that TALENT? She's hiding behind her over the top style and attractiveness to sell records. At least Lady Gaga's outrageous fashion is equal to her abilities as a singer, songwriter, and overall artist. Nicki just can't compare. I have no idea why she's platinum. Christina Perri deserves it. Jessie J deserves it. Not Nicki.

      Uh...she was just on Saturday Night Live...is that something you have done? Have you even been in a talent show at your high school?

      And regarding the poster Truth: since when are any women in show business or hollywood "real", regardless of race. Is Cher or Dolly Parton "real".
