THE QUEEN HAS ARRIVED"
When we first lay eyes on this Hip Hop Barbie taking over 2010 decorated in her rainbow of locks and costumes galore, we are instantly transported on a trip to Candy Land. We find ourselves locked into the gaze of bold faces paired with the variety of dialects that flow out of her bubble gum painted lips. Who is this unique species equipped with a crew of alter egos and her own language to match?
She is taking our mind on a mission that even Tom Cruise would find difficult to accomplish! Nicki Minaj is more intelligent than anything Mattel could have produced. What started out as an underground dream has transpired into what can now be stamped a record breaking career. Minaj has put in her time and now that she has fully emerged we all seem to have caught an extremely contagious case of Pink eye! Some skeptics have tried to tear through her pretty packaging, but once she opens her mouth it is clear that play time is over. Her lyrics are sharper than a pair of Giuseppe stilettos fresh off the runway and her style can not be manufactured. Perhaps the biggest trend of all is how she has managed to steal the spotlight without having to sell herself. It seems as if female rappers have always had to play a specific role in the heavily male dominated industry to earn a place to shine. Minaj caught sight of that trend years ago and decided she would find a way to dance in her own moonlight. This is not a "Maraj" it is an extravagant empire that she has produced through her effervescent creativity. A place where dreams begin and where you can find an army of "Barbies and Ken dolls" at any given moment ready to lay it on the line for their Queen.
Audiences take notice as she lends her eccentric verses to some of today's hottest acts in the game while earning her own crown on Billboards’s Hot 100. Iconic endeavors such as these are what we find most commendable as she paints the world pink. It is evident that Nicki Minaj knows what it means to take risks. Her persona may switch a time or two at any given moment, but this 3D cartoon heroine comes equipped with the fascinating ability to remain genuine through each takeover. With her highly anticipated debut album "Pink Friday" now available nationwide, the world is about to be whisked through her wonderland and the anatomy of female rap music will never be the same. Game on.
