Barbie girl with a twist, Nicki Minaj is one hell of an outrageous character. Or should I say characters? Because it’s not just Nicki Minaj rapping. There’s Roman Zolanski (the aggressive one), Martha (his mum), Barbie (the ditzy girly girl) and the sassy Rosa. And did I mention she does a mean British accent?
The quirky new Queen of Rap has been ‘so hot right now’ for a minute, lending her crazy rhymes to the hottest tracks out and instantly elevating a song from mediocre to awesome. Often, her solos steal the limelight – think ‘Monster’ from Kanye West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.
These are just some memorable lyrics from “Nicki Minaj, Nicki Lewinski, Nicki the ninja, Nicki the boss, Nicki the harajuku Barbie”.
