Female (c)rapper from Lil Wayne's Young Money group. Her voice is very childish and she likes to call herself Barbie, which probably explains her overdone makeup and big boobs/butt that look suspiciously fake. In an attempt to make herself seem edgy she creates different stage personas and relies on the "sex sells" method, but just comes across as a bad, cheap rehash of Lady Gaga and Lil Kim.
Nicki Minaj is like the Lady Gaga of poorly done ghetto rap.
I'm well aware about Nicki's troubled past and it's great that she's beginning a career, but her songs are pretty shallow and her style is cheap and classless.
