    I liked her verse in Kanye's "Monster". Sadly, everything else I've listened to by her has done nothing for me.

    I wouldnt say she was the best rapper, but shes the raps industry's Lady Gaga and Rihanna and her presence will create further interest in rap and promote women rappers.

    When she's on she's really on but most of the time she's just 'eh'. Her verse on Monster was fire though

    I really like her, and her album is v.good. The best songs in my opinion are:

    Fly
    Moment 4 Life
    Save Me
    Blazin'

    However, I don't see her catching on here. Her style is too 'American', if you know what I mean. In the same way Missy Elliott is huge in the states but not so much here.

    The funny thing is, I went to HMV and they told me her album had sold out - so I expected her album to come in the UK top 10 or something, not number 34.

    Maybe so actually. Certainly her mixtapes couldn't fly too well here.
    I think she'll have a successful 2011 and Fly & Moment might do something on the charts here?

    My favourites from Pink Friday are:

    Roman's Revenge
    Did It On 'Em
    Fly (Rihanna did an amazing job!)
    Moment 4 Life

    It's funny because there are few unanimous favourites on discussion boards.

    Both

    Well, I would say some of her outfits are definitely of questionable taste :lolwut:, but other outfits of hers are pretty nice . And her makeup is usually really pretty

    And I totally agree about the quotable lyrics!

    "Detonate in the palms, detonate in the fire, rose by the bucket, money-making attire"

    Ooh, I might do sometime. Don't really know where to start but I'll think about it!

    I love Itty Bitty Piggy. I love how she's humourous with it sometimes...


    She really brightens up this song for me!

    Overall i think she is a mediocre rapper but her flow kills it.

    I find it funny how her album was weaker than banks', but pushed 500,000. Yet Banks' didn't even push 100,000. Banks had IMO the best album this year, yes kanyes was a 4-4.5/5 album, HFM2 just had a better feel through out.

    I don't even really like Roman's Revenge much . Well, the beat is OK, and the first verse is kinda cool, but I dunno, I just find the song overall a bit annoying and not very enjoyable

    I like Nicki Minaj as an artist, shes really come through recently.

    Off Pink Friday I like:
    Blazin
    Moment For Life
    Romans Revenge

    I prefer her rapping to singing tbch, like as everyone said in Monster shes crazy, but its awesome, Romans Revenge was good but not as good as Monster.

    Buuh still good job Nicki.

    She was aite on Monster, but she's been weak on everything else I've heard. She has nothing to talk about. All she has is energy, and while the facts that she brings a lot of energy and makes for an entertaining listen are commendable, her bars just don't stand up. Give me some Jean Grae, Yo-Yo or Lauryn Hill over Nicki Minaj.

    Agreed. I don't think I'd like her or if she'd have a good career is she just did pure singing.

    She said she was releasing "Save Me" though!

    Playtime is over is so :sogood: to me..
    From that mixtape I love her version of "Warning"
