Nicki Minaj

"While naysayers debated whether she was too campy or oversexualized or wore too much Barbie Doll pink lipstick, Minaj was busy breaking records. She made guest appearances on some of the year's biggest songs (including Ludacris's "My Chick Bad"), and her solo track "Right Thru Me" gave her her twelfth hit on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart this year. And then her summer jam, "Your Love," achieved another milestone: It was the first time in eight years that a female rapper had a No.1 rap song." - Cori Murray writes about the rapper Nicky Minaj rise to fame under the News & Culture column for the December 2010 issue of Essence Magazine.
