Nicki Minaj Declares Herself the 'Most Awarded Female Rapper'
Nicki Minaj is feeling herself and she’s proud of it. Taking to Instagram on Saturday (June 24), the Young Money queen posted a series of recent accomplishments, explaining why she feels the need to broadcast her wins.
“According to Universal Records, this year alone, my album catalogue sold 325K worldwide and #ThePinkprint is now at 4 Million worldwide,” she wrote. “Since January, I’ve received 11 billboard entries, and yesterday with that ASCAP award, I became the most awarded female rapper in history‼️To top it all off, this year I received the title for most Hot 100 entries by any woman in the HISTORY of MUSIC. A title previously held by Aretha Franklin for 40 years.👑
“They don’t want you to post your achievements & accomplishments. It makes them uncomfortable,” she added. “But you must! B/c everyday, ppl broadcast your failures. They shout them to the mountain tops. So never EVER stop posting your accomplishments. I love my fans so much.”
The photo that she captioned was taken at a recent “secret shoot,” which she provided behind-the-scenes videos and photos for in recent days.
Currently, Nicki is celebrating success on the Hot 100 with a couple of guest spots. Jason Derulo’s “Swalla” is now at No. 30, while Katy Perry’s “Swish Swish” hangs at No. 62.
Tonight, Minaj is up for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist at the BET Awards. On Monday, she will perform at the Drake-hosted NBA Awards.
There are likely more accolades in the future. Nicki is currently readying her fourth studio album, the follow-up to 2014’s The Pinkprint.
