    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?

    Agreed, however.

    I think we're forgetting that Nicki has progressed slowly into a fusion of rapper/pop artist. While it might not be lyrically anything to write home about, I will vouch for I Get Crazy as the way I see it, it was the first REAL push in the pop direction that she had. In that sense I think it's important.

    SAINT!
    hi! :D

    you really think it's one of her BEST works though?

    i mean—
    we want as close to perfection as we can GET in the canon, and IGC was a big song for her, but quality wise?

    Well, I think CANON should encompass songs that did alot for her career aswell (ex. Monster). It might not be top notch lyrically or even production wise, but I think it carries a huge significance for her in the BIG picture. IGC was the first time ALOT of us even heard her get played on a radio, I think it marked the moment she turned from mixtape rapper to someone a little more commercially viable.

    Hey boo!
    My Suggestion: Catch Me.
    Why?: I believe Catch Me should be in the canon because lyrically it takes you on a journey- just like the bulk of the other songs in this already. Even though it took us a while to understand its meaning- once we all understood, the messages in it spoke loud and clear. It takes us inside one of her relationships, one that was almost corrupted in a way [little hints in the song tell us that]. Nicki really shows her ass through her verses and her songs, but not many of them has left me as puzzled as this one, a good puzzled! She also puts a lot of emotion into the singing and rapping she does in this song. i.e.: "I am at your disposal" Giving me Autobiography/Can you hear me/Save Me teas.. I also believe it should be in the canon because of its BEAT! [can we do that?... oh well im doing it anyway] You CANNOT deny Catch Me's futuristic slay fest. The beat is sometimes off in the chorus- yet it still FITS, and Nicki raps over it almost in a seductive.. trance. Very hard to explain. Every line she sung and rapped fits the beat PERFECTLY... and I LOVE it.



    Nicki Minaj and her TeamMinaj will be hosting funeral services for your favorite's careers on 11.22.10. All hasbeen stans are welcome.

    hmmm.
    i dunno—
    i could use that same argument for 'your love', and even NICKI thinks that's some of her worst work.

    but i'll confer with the barbz and get a consensus.

    YM Salute - That Verse ALONE Speaks Volume. Definitely One Of Her Best Verses Due To The Fact That The Lines "Ima Need My Badges & My Ribbons. Maybe That'll Make Up For Everything That I Wasn't Given." Solidifies The Song As A WHOLE. I DEF Think It's Worthy Of The Canon.
