    I def think "Sweetest Girl"
    Besides it being my favorite, it's honest straight talk, kinda like her "Blazin" of 2008 in the sense of her "saying what she felt needed to be said"


    aaaah.
    'blazin'.

    makes me think. :)

    cuz the "yup the record" part blew my mind, that's why. lol
    i wouldn't say it's one of her best though, just sayin it's slept on.

    and i prolly love "always love you" so much cuz i'm dying to live in new york.
    "where the Giants'll tackle you / call it capital apple"
    "city that never sleeps but it's the city of dreams"

    i would love for her to do an entire song like that, but then people would say she think she's jay-z.

    - "Fly" definitely because some (little) girls with (Big) Dreams don't get that motivation that "Fly" gives out. &n I'm VERY self conident\motiated but even at my moments when I'm not so sure about myself, I can count on that track. It sorta makes me feel like I WILL WIN just like Nicki did.
    - I Love "Dear Old Nicki". When I listen to that song I automatically feel like Nicki is talking DIRECTLY to me &n telling me her pains. It's like she ripped a page out of her Diary &n found way's to make her feelings rhyme. &n the same with "Autobiography"
    - "Envy" &n "Encore" are just great songs, they give me that vibe, that good kinda Vibe, that let's throw a party kinda vibe, THAT LET'S GO START A RIOT KINDA VIBE.!
    - Last but not least "Moment For Life" I don't know what to say about that song but everytime I listen to it I feel Like THE FUCKING KING JR


    i don't think 'envy' and 'moment 4 life' are among the BEST songs in nicki's catalog.

    I believe that 'sweetest girl' should be included in the canon for various reasons. Despite the verse being relatively short it displays such an strong emotion that immediately makes you feel the vulnerability nicki had when writing the verse almost reminiscent of 'autobiography'. When she says "said you want to drape me, turned around and raped me, naw you ain't mistake." that line literally makes me cringe and cry at the same time because you can feel the anger and the sorrow in her voice. Additionally the somber nature of the song with such thought provoking lyrics elevates the verse to an even higher level. Its seems as she was inspired to write this verse from something she wrote in her diary because its so personal which is another thing that i love about it. So yeah, thats why 'sweetest girl' should be included in the canon. :D

    40 bars - MOSTLY, i like how she STRESSES that she writes her own lyrics.
    "How the fuk you in the game like 10 yrs strong. Ya'll bitches still can't write your own damn song?"
    "Write my own bars, and my flows the hardest, Nigga!"

    She MASTERS the flow on this beat. Laid back, yet she doesn't sound uninterested.

    I think New York Minute remix needs to be in the Canon.

    The way she rides that beat>>>>>>> And I think she does good job conveying in her verse how things can change so quickly which I think was the songs purpose, and you can tell she really felt what she saying. Her verse always makes me feel some kinda way everytime I hear it, one of my faves.

    Look back, fightin' for the spot, but I took dat...

    (In a New York Minute) Rappers'll just beef, Stack bundles will be deceased
    (In a New York Minute) Brought my man down, before they even get a cap or a damn gown..

    ..and a star will arise, and she'll originate from the streets of Southside

    Idk if this has been argued, but maybe "Warning" should be in the list. A lot of males I know who got into Nicki during her mix tape days...that was the song they said turned them onto her. I do believe I even heard a few hip hop experts give props to her cover. I think "Warning" is to her mixtape days what "Monster" is to her mainstream days...perhaps?
