Nicki Minaj Reigns on Cover of DAZED

Celebrating a decade since her Playtime Is Over debut mixtape, Nicki Minaj graces three different covers of DAZED magazine’s Autumn/Winter 2017 issue.

Photographed by Steven Klein, one cover is vibrant and shows Minaj on the back of a black horse. Another finds her staring into the camera in a grainy black-and-white flick. The final cover, also in black and white, has her face framed with masking tape.

Elsewhere, Barbie explains the “genius” behind her achievements, boasting about her money-making ways in a male-dominated field. “I knew my worth from very early on,” she explains. “Some may call it attitude, some might call it genius! Some might call a female rapper being able to get a million dollars for one show genius!”⠀

Minaj is currently prepping her first album in three years, the follow-up to 2014’s The Pinkprint. In the meantime, she remains a staple of the Hot 100, where she is currently at No. 13 with Yo Gotti’s “Rake It Up” and No. 47 with Katy Perry’s “Swish Swish.”
