Nicki Minaj Controversy

Nicki Minaj is a generally new artist in the rap game supported by the now widely known Young Money crew headed by the one only self titled Best Rapper Alive, Lil Wayne. With her early success being such a new artist, most of her success can be attributed to Lil Wayne co-signing her and her 'barbie' movement as well as giving her some of her buzz. With Lil Wayne being the president of Young Money, she has even given herself the nickname, Nicki Lewenski, referring to the Bill Clinton and Monica Lewenski scandal. There have been more than a few remarks from the two, especially in lyrics that they have had sexual encounters with each other but there have also been a couple of comments that seemed pretty genuine that they are just friends.

In the very beginning of her career, Nicki focused more more on sex appeal and what she herself claimed to be, "raunchy" lyrics. She caught the attention of many haters very early because of her style being so similar to Lil Kim. She has always denied copying Lil Kim or 'biting her style' in anyway, claiming that she's always done Nicki Minaj. To kind of tell all of the haters off, she did a promotional photo shoot in 2008 for her second mixtape, 'Sucka Free', in which replicated one of Lil Kim's most popular pictures. In the end, it only threw more fuel to the hating fire but the reaction from the picture only created more hype and buzz for her new mixtape and career. Haters are always going to hate, and they just stir up more promotion for artists at the end of the day. Nicki Minaj was even featured on a song from the, 'Sucka Free' Mixtape as well as numerous other songs and has publicly said that she likes and supports Nicki and her movement.

Nicki Minaj Addresses The Haters

The Nicki Minaj Donk freestyle, titled Itty Bitty Piggy was released on her third and most popular mixtape, 'Beam Me Up Scotty' in which she addressed all of her haters including other female rappers that have attempted to start a beef with her. Since releasing the mixtape, she has also said that she is focusing on writing real meaningful music now, not just the same old sexual appealing songs. She shows a little bit of her new side in this mixtape, but she's saving the rest for her debut album expected to be released sometime in 2010. She also speaks about her marketed sex appeal in the song, Envy. For more Nicki Minaj Lyrics.

      She is no Lil Kim. Lil Kim may have dressed in weird costumes but at least her music had some meaning to it. Lil Kim was a far better rapper than Shitty Minaj will ever be.
