Poll: Nicki Minaj’s Best Guest Verse

Nicki Minaj

Love her or love to hate her, there’s no denying Nicki Minaj puts a unique twist on every guest verse she spits. The rap diva, who playfully switches up her persona and voice any chance she gets, has collaborated with the likes of Christina Aguilera and Ludacris, at times creating jaw-dropping bars that upstage the song’s creator.

As the most coveted femcee in the game, Nicki’s scored dozens of guest verses and counting. Check her risqué lines on Usher’s “Lil Freak” (“I’m signin’ them tig-o-bitties/ I’m plotting on how I can take Cassie away from Diddy”) or the West Indian accent she uses on Sean Kingston’s “Letting Go (Dutty Love).” Then there’s her alter-ego, Roman Zolanski, who she introduces listeners to on Trey Songz’s “Bottoms Up.” This Barbie plays no games when it comes to her collaborations.

So which one of Nicki Minaj’s guest verses do you think is the best? Rap-Up.com wants to know. We’ve narrowed it down to 10 standout verses. From Mariah Carey to Yo Gotti, and more, vote on which song ranks as Nicki’s No. 1. Poll closes Tuesday, Aug. 24, at 9 p.m. PST.
