Nicki Minaj

    @edison, Those Sellout Singles Helped Her Sell A Milli WW. You Can’t Knock Nicki Because Most Of These Male Rappers Are Making Music and They Don’t Even Go Platinum. Wiz Khalifa “Rolling Papers” NOT PLATINUM, Chris Brown “Fortune” NOT PLATINUM, Big Sean “Finally Famous” NOT EVEN GOLD , NAS Album Sold Less Than 150K First Week. Most Female Rappers NOT PLATINUM. But We Have Nicki Minaj Who’s Album Is Nearly 600K In The U.S In 3 Months While Finally Famous, and Rolling Papers Were Released Last Year and Still Is NOT PLATINUM. SMHHHHH DAMNNNNNNN !

    @AllAmerykhanBoy, Sit!! You’re making false accusations and this is false info, Nicki DID NOT Sell a million ww off this wack ass album!!

    AllAmerykhanBoy Reply:

    @AllAmerykhanBoy, Fact Last Weeks Total Sales Were 993,000 Thats Selling 25,000 Last Week. This Week She Passed 1 Mill So Do Your Research Mama and @JussSaying I Said “Most Female Rappers Not Platinum” and All My Statements Up There Are Fact. If You Feel A Way Look Up Their Stats On Google. As Of July 2012 Rolling Papers Have Sold Nearly 800K COpies, Fortune Has Sold 206,500 Copies. You’re Mad Nicki Is Shitting On Your Favs Right Now

    @AllAmerykhanBoy, You people are ridiculous meaning if you guys where to be famous , ya would do anything to get money even loss your self respect ..
    Well I believe Nicki is a fraud and she i and alot of other people in this world don’t see any type of future for Nicki .. and she sees it to that why she asking people to go tour with her , cause she know if she comes to the hood by her self nobody will be there ….

    AllAmerykhanBoy Reply:

    @AllAmerykhanBoy, Ain’t Nobody Checking For The Hood. The Hood Is Poor. They Don’t Buy Music. My Uncle Said It Himself. He Laughed At Me and Said “Only White People Buy Music” So, Nicki Shore As Hell Will Not Be In No Hood With No Thirsty Disgusting Looking Men In 2012. I Don’t Think I’ll Be Losing My Self Respect Because I Know Who I Am and I Know That I Am A Musical Artist and If I Like Every Type Of Genre I Will Make That Genre As Long As My Fans Appreciate My Craft I’m Good. Those That Don’t, F**K Em’.

    @edison, I must agree. Nicki is old news now. Nobody will respect her because she is not relevant to female rap anymore. Fall 2012 the Queen Trina returns and is back to business. Show them how it’s really done. look of for Back 2 Business Mixtape coming soon. Nicki SIT!

    @edison, Champion was rap she’s about to do the video for it. Her ‘Out of My Mind’ verse w/ B.O.B is rap. Her ‘Get Low’ verse w/ Waka Flocka is rap. Her verse on ‘Gimme Money’ w/ Ester Dean is…yup rap again. ‘Muthafucka Up’ verse w/ Tyga. ‘Born Stunna Rmx’ verse… the list goes on…and these are from this year!

    Just for the record Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded is platinum..she tweeted her pic receiving the plaque on tour (which happens to be sold out every nite). Nicki is winning face it.

    @Trina’s Back, I would just like to know why you are sitting on your computer all day long just to bash those who enjoy the music of Nicki Minaj. If your career is #1 to you how about you focus on moving up in your career rather than bashing an artist on the internet. At the end of the day whether you like Nicki Minaj or not her album sales speak for themselves. If you don’t like the music, change the station or switch the song. Why take time to comment just to continuously bash for no reason. If you like Trina good for you, if I don’t my loss. But, you won’t see me attacking Trina, get a life and move on.

    1234FoxyLoxy Reply:

    @sherwin, This video is representing trini carnival. I’m a trini and me and my family loved how she’s bringing cultural values into her videos. “Jumping up” is exactly what she’s doing. Go search up carnival and cariwest. It’s all a culture. She’s smiling because carnival is fun. It is not cheaply done because although there isn’t alot of material on those costumes. They’re expensive as hell. And flying down to Trinidad is expensive, although the exchange rate is much less. It’s ver far away. And she’s probably bringing in alot more fans than you think.

    [Reply]

    1234FoxyLoxy Reply:

    @sherwin, Jumping up is another word for dancing, and trinidad is much more than this, but (no offense) white people or people who aren’t from the carribean islands, don’t understand what it’s about. Bringing culture into a music video is a risky thing because of reactions like yours. Los Angeles is nothing compared to Trinidad. Trust me.

    For being Nicki’s hometown, you’d expect to see rep more her fans/hometown people. All you see in this vid is Minaj jumping around like she yearning for the toilet and her back up dancers & film set crew. When Kim went back to her hometown in Brooklyn to film her “Lighters Up” video, she made sure the whole hood was featured, no back up dancers, no techno beats, no corny hook just raw & gist hip-hop/rap talent at it’s lyrical best. Think twice before you choose a ‘Queen’. I’m not hating, I’m only stating.

Don’t Click On Her Links. You Obviously Didn’t Thoroughly Payed Attention To The Visuals Because The Intro Of The Video Showed Off Trinidad, The Middle Of The Video Showed Off The Beautiful Woman Of The Island, The Video’s Theme Implemented What Her Country Is Known For: Carnivals. The End Of The Video Showed Nicki With The Thugs. So, Whats Your Argument Again?

    the video is cool but i am sure at this point we all know that nicki is not original she takes pieces of things from every artist and just makes it look sexier but its nothing new. sex sells all she does is faunt her fake boobs, fake ass, etc to sell.

    [Reply]

    AllAmerykhanBoy Reply:

    @tooreal, But When She Released Songs Like Fly, Marilyn Monroe, Save Me, Catch Me, Moment 4 Life Is She Selling Sex or Is Just She Empowering? When She Goes On T.V and Tell Kids To Stay In School, Don’t Chase After Boys, Put Your Goals First Is She Selling Sex or Empowering. So When These Other B*****s Sitting Here Talking Bout “I Don’t Want D**k Tonight Just Eat My P***y Right” , “How Many Licks”, “I Could Make A Sprite Can Disappear In My Mouth” Is That Empowering or Is That Selling Sex? So When Beyonce Was Inspired By The Youtube Video For Single Ladies Was That Selling Sex? When Beyonce Was Inspired By Boys To Men and MJ For Love On Top Was That Selling Sex? When Chris Brown Add Dance Routines Similar To MJ’s Was That Being Unoriginal or Inspired?

    @AllAmerykhanBoy, Lol! Nope she didn’t do any of that but she was also the chick who came out with a single called “Stupid Hoe”, Pulled out dildos on her tour last year, talked about putting her “Pu**y on somebodies side burns”, talked about how “clean and squeaky” her pu**y was, and not to mention all the ASS flopping around in the “Beez In The Trap” music video.

    Don’t make Nicki out to be the most empowering female in music then turn around and throw salt on her ROLE MODEL’s name. Yes Lil Kim did talk about sex, but name a chick who hasn’t? Lil Kim’s music wasn’t only about sex, but she had alot that people could connect to. “The Naked Truth” is the realist album by a female rapper in HISTORY. Fuck outta here.

    @RG2, Most Of Gaga’s Video’s Dont Fit With Her Song, Beyonce Dancing In A Leotard Had Nothing To Do With Single Ladies. But Thats The Point Of Creativity and How You Say The Video Had Nothing To Do With The Song The Beat Of The Song Is In The Same Chords As The Kind Of Songs They Play In Carnivals and Also Before The Song Started It Showed A Guy Playing The Instrument Called A Steel Pan To The “Oh Oh Oh” Part Of The Song. and Steel Pan Is The Key Instrument Of Trinidad Which Is Where She’s From and Where The Video Was Shot.

    [Reply]

    Vanessa Reply:

    @AllAmerykhanBoy, Your books is understandable but this song doesn’t fit with this scenery. What a lot of you fail to understand is, this isn’t creativity. Creativity is something CREATIVE. Something we’ve NEVER seen before. When critics look at Nicki, they see Lil Kim. Every female rapper resembles someone. Is it wrong to ask for someone that’s just original? Tell me that. Being inspired is one thing but saying you want to fill someone’s shoes then steal their identity is ridiculous. In your previous post you mentioned Chris Brown. He’s a good example. He idolizes MJ for daysssss. He uses pieces of him because he is inspired but he’s one out of a few artist that come up with stuff that’s not thought of often. His performances are different and so is his videos. Creativity is something that comes easy to him. He doesn’t have to try hard. Beyonce, same thing. I will admit the video was fun, just basic as usual.

    @Vanessa, fuck are u talking about? How is Chris Brown only “influenced” by MJ yet Nicki is COPYING Lil Kim?! There isn’t any difference in reality. Lil Kim didn’t create the universes. She influenced most female rappers that have come after her but Nicki saw her style and did her thing with it. It’s the same as artists like Usher, Chris Brown & Justin Timberlake did with Michael Jackson and Gaga with Madonna. The only reason Kim fans are bitter unlike Madonna and Michael Jackson fans is because Kim never reached legendary status and she went away, so now when any artist is influenced by her they get mad because they feel Kim is being forgotten.

    And your right, Nicki did see Kim’s style, she took it, and didn’t do NOTHING with it. Why do you think everytime she does a video people point out her copying antics? Lol.

NO. They move a lil like him and put their own flavor to it. Nicki? Need me not. People didn’t compare her to Kim, JUST because. Kim was the first to rock fashion in the industry so you can take a seat and think about it. There’s videos to prove how fake this chick is. How do you say you want to fill someone’s shoes but take EVERYTHING about them? We’ve seen the pictures, her raps from 07′, we’re NOT stupid. Wake up!

    @peace, Its Not Hip-Hop Its MUSIC. It’s Called Being An Artist. If You Want Hip-Hop Listen To The First Half Of Her Album, Her Mixtapes and Her Featured Verses. “Out Of My Mind” by B.o.B “Get Low” By Waka Flocka , “Mutherfucker Up” By Tyga, “Make Me Proud” by Drake , “Gimme Money” By Ester Dean

    You guys are the biggest haters I’ve EVER SEEN. It’s okay for Kanye West to make a whole POP CD/R&B CD (808′s and Heartbreak), and nobody on a global scale has SHIT TO SAY. Let Nicki Minaj do it, and the whole world has a negative opinion. But guess what? Her RAP FLOW is better than your favorite female rapper, and probably your favorite male rapper. Her POP SKILLS are absolutely amazing. Her songs that are R&B slay as well. She’s going to continue to be a crossover artist, and if you don’t like it, keep clicking the video. In the end, all it’s doing it giving her publicity and video views, which is what she wanted from the get go. Thanks. :)

    @AAY, Except that Kanye West made a GOOD(=INNOVATIVE/FRESH) POP music album and not some generic Gagaesque-euro/teen/bubblegum pop music. The problem is not with Nicki Minaj per se but with all this Europop trend which is all the rage these days.

    You can thank Benny Boom (The Director) for the nice visual because Nicki didnt do shit. Beside the visual it doesnt go with the song at all its a very high energy dance track and Nicki did absolutely NO DANCING.

    I don’t hate it. It sounds like a release more for the UK than the US. But why do black people feel the need to pigeon-hold one another into one thing? If the girl wants to release all pop music she’s a sell out. If she does all hip-hop and doesn’t sell any records, she’s a flop. Y’all would rather our people stay stupid making records that portray the life of a d-boy or a player as some beautiful thing. Yall would rather keep an artist trying to be relevant to the hood that ISN’T BUYING ANYONE’S RECORDS. I understand staying true to who you are, but none of us can define who an artist is because someone’s identity is personal. Everybody’s saying she’s changed she’s changed but she can still drop records like “Roman Reloaded”, “Champion” and “Come on a Cone”. That doesn’t mean she’s changed, it means she’s adapted to the game and realizes it’s going to take more than the hip hop heads to keep a consistent career. Keep it funky, how many of yall who are bashing her releasing this style of music actually called the radio and requested “Beez in the Trap” or “Champion”? I’ll wait…. *checks watch* EXACTLY. So how are you gonna bash her for releasing music that is getting air play, radio requests and platinum selling singles? I gotta pay my bills. Eff getting daps on the corner. At some point, you have to grow up and be smart. Pull your pants up, enroll in college and be the change you seek. Stop trying to hold other people down from excelling. End Rant.

    Female Rap is an absolute mess. Nicki hasn’t been a creative hiphop artist since her first mixtape, so y’all can act dumb all you want, but y’all knew she wasn’t gonna be the same rapper from 2007 since her second mixtape. So y’all gonna ignore that every mixtape after Playtime was trash, and so was pretty much everything she did since then? Ok.

    No female rapper is doing shit for hiphop. They can all hang it up now.

    There’s alot of anger on this board and for what reason?
    The girl came home and wanted to do a song with a video of her home country’s biggest celebration, Carnival. She had a few of the popular Trinidadian artistes do cameos on the video and then had her cousins featured at the end.
    The girl has stayed and keeps staying relevant to different musical genres and it sells albums.
    Congrats to her for once again remembering her roots and coming back home to T&T.
    I feel sad for all of you who are so angry at someone who keeps ahead of the game and is constantly paying tribute to where she came from.

    Rihanna much?! I’ve said before & i’ll say it again, Nicki swagger-jacks Rihanna but not to worry Rihanna will fix that with album coming (can’t wait)!

    However, this video is nice & swagger-jacking or no swagger-jacking, i’m greatly appreciative of both of them giving love & exposure to the West Indies!
