Nicki Minaj’s Hot New Promo Photos!

Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj wields her weapons of mass destruction—and a sword—in one of two sexy promo photos for her forthcoming debut album. Hip-hop’s new poster girl commands our attention as a samurai in a pink kimono with yellow hair in one colorful image and packs a punch in a second shot, sporting a sheer black catsuit and orange wig. Come on Barbie, let’s go party!

    I have one. I gave Nicki her props on the photos. I said she looks hot. However I said why do people bring Lil Kim into this when this post is about NM. So Since people seem to have to diss KIM every change they get…. I thought I would let her the facts speak for themselves! I’ve over these young kids not knowing their history. I actually respect NM but cant stand her dumb as fans. This 106 generation is garbage. Do your fu(king research before you blast..

    Um Lil’ Kim can’t even release an album now, so check your stats. Her album Vintage that was supposed to be released last year got shelved, because the first single “download” flopped. So get off Nicki, because if your commentin, apparently the picks caught your eye too. U like them? Yep

    [Reply]

  38. pablo

    @EveryYearIsCiaras if u chekced ur stats u would see that vintage got shelved because she stopped working with trackmasters and therefore download didnt get enough promotion because she left them due to creative differences.

    Shaytan what you posted did not help kim what so ever. Yes Kim sure has accomplished alot but most of the awards she was nominated for were all thanks to collaborations. Majority of what you posted is all Lady Maramelade nominations and wins. I’m sure alot of people can agree that Kim contributed nothing but average on that track. Other than that you post award shows that has no recognition which I’m sure you had no idea of until you wikipedia Lil Kim. Plain and simple what you and I posted was a waste of time. Infact this wannabe type feud is a waste of time and we all know it.

    Not a Nicki stan but I LOVE her style!!! She stays on the Tokyo stuff! You can actually dress like that here in Japan – anything goes! I can understand Americans in America not understanding it, but that’s because fashion is majorly restricted there.

    I love Kim too but damn her last two 
    albums brick hard… So leave Nicki alone…
    and Im not even a fan of Nicki like dat, but
    haters get on my nerves.  If Kim still
    is the queen Bee, she wouldnt have to diss 
    a new comer who dont have an album out, 
    and I’m saying this because only time I 
    hear anything about kim is when her name 
    is tied to Nicki.

    I love these….photos SOOO LOOKING FORWARD TO HER 1ST ALBUMN. And No to whoever said “She hasnt released a albumn yet because she’s garbage” Im pretty sure you want to get your name out there before you just go selling albumns…otherwise nobody will know you name and no one’s gonna buy the albumn so in the end it’ll be a waste of everybodies time.

    @Who Gonna Check Me Boo – YOU SAID IT EXACTLY!!!!!!!!! Haters make me get interested in stuff they hate, actually! Haters don’t realize that they give Nicki the most publicity, thus spreading her fame/infamy to people who might not have otherwise cared/known. That’s the irony here.

    [Reply]

  57. LShea

    “Harajuku Nation”? There’s nothing original about the fashion here. People complain about clones in the U.S. but that’s all you see here in Japan. It’d be different if you saw people doing their own thing different from everybody else, but here you see the same complete look on several people. You can even buy the whole outfit in a bag. Come on, now! And I say this as a former fan of Japanese fashion.

    @Who Gon Check Me Boo, Kim’s last two albums did NOT brick. They were great. La Bella Mafia is underrated. She’s received numerous nominations for that album, and has even won awards for it. The Naked Truth, OMG…that is EASILY one of the BEST female albums to EVER hit the streets. It is also underrated. Alot of people have been sleeping on Kim since she dropped Notorious KIM, because it wasn’t a good follow up to Hardcore. However, the bitch still holds the moniker “Queen Bee”, and has proven this on many occasions. Biggie picked the right chick, left her the formula….and she took it and ran with it. No other rap bitch has her delivery and flow….the only female MC I will say that is on her level, or near her caliber…is Foxy Brown.

    …And to the person who said something about Nicki being pass Kim. Stop it, just stop it. That’s not true whatsoever. I love Nicki, but she hasn’t accomplished half of what Kim has. As far as winning awards go. So what?! She won 3 BET awards, WOW!….holler at me when she snatches a Grammy. NEXT!

    I am a huge fan of Nicki minaj, but I was raised during the lil kim era. I do not know much about lil kim because I never took time to listen to her, but I will admit that Lil kim is better right now. Lil kim has put out ALBUMS. Nicki still hasn’t put out an album yet. Nicki isn’t the best until she’s put out an album. Then you can judge. I am not really feeling lil kim because I feel as if this is nicki minaj’s time to shine and show what she can do. I do not think its fair that lil kim is trying to shut the girl down. Nicki is still trying to make a name for herself. I will also admit that even if nicki never puts out an album she’s still going to go down in history as one of the most fun-unique female rappers.
