  1. Wait a minute now how in the world Kayne and Nicki Lil' Kim's knockoff ends up being the top 2 albums on the billboard, but they both drop like flies on the chart. You mean to tell me Baby buying Nicki's album could not boost her album sales. In my Gucci mane's voice, "Well thang"!!! The press hype Nicki Minaj album as the best thing out there. The joke is on her.

  2. Sad thing is Nicki had more album buzz then Kanye West did.

  3. The Rap Album and Hip Hop Album charts has Nicki Minaj at #2 and Kayne West at #1.

    This is the correct order for the charts by units sold (by eliminating the category R&B etc).

    Cash Money will purchase the remaining units to certify Nicki's record and give the CD's away as Holiday gifts.

    Nicki is better as a featured artist - not as a solo artist. Her voice is annoying! All you hear is ei ei yi yi yo yo its sucks.

  4. Lyrica - Nicki as a solo artist will eventually grow on people. When Lil Kim came out as a solo artist, it took awhile for people to accept her as just that. When Lil Kim dropped Hardcore in November 1996, her debut album didn't certify as Gold until January 1997. It went Platinum in June 1997 and double platinum in March 2001 (Five Years Later). There are reports online that says Lil Kim is coming out with a follow-up to her debut album Hardcore. Also heard that the rapper EVE is preparing to drop a new album.

  5. ^^^ All you hear is ei ei yi yi yo yo its sucks. I laugh at this part here, but you are so true. Without Cash Money buying Nicki's record she will be lower than these record sales. I cannot for the life me tolerate Nicki rapping skills. Honesty she dies not make any sense. And her facial expression scares me sometimes. By the way Nicki is copying Lil' Kim again.

  6. @Truth Speaking I don't quite agree. Although I do respect your opinon, but Nicki rapping skills makes no sense at all. I cannot even put in words of Nicki's rapping skills it is all over the place. I see Nicki as a fade the public will get tired of her antics and move on. I seen it happen before.

  7. I am not a fan of Nicki's music or this Barbie persona that she's pushing. It's all superficial and her lyrics don’t feed the soul intellect. If you think about it, she's pulling from the Lauren Hill, Missy Elliot and Lil Kim lyrical sensibilities.

  8. Lyrica - Fugees video came on yesterday and for some strange reason, i thought about Nicki Minaj lyrical sense.

  9. That picture of Lil Kim wearing the sheer bodysuit, blond wig and fluffy slides - wow. Nicki Minaj need to re-check her stylist resume.

  10. LOOK AT HER CD COVER CLOSELY. THE N MAINLY. LOOK AT HOW THE LETTER N REST OVER HER EYE. DO YOU SEE THE SHAPE OF AN UPSIDE DOWN PYRAMID (TRIANGLE)?

  11. @ Truthfully Speaking Nicki does rap simiarly like the Fugees - Nappy heads thanks for pointing that out. @6:18 Yeah I notice the upside down triangle. I figure Nicki is down because Nicki is a puppet.

  12. Lauryn Hill is known for adding laughter within her lyrics and repeating words like Nicki does (example: say say say...hey hey hey..booya etc). Missy Elliot has a wild style of making funny faces, funny noises and wearing weird clothing. Lil Kim had the street sense and wore cute and different styles when she came out and didn't have the body to fill-in the suits because being sexy wasn't as popular back then. If you roll all three artist into one person you'll get Nicki Minaj rap persona - totally superficial.

  13. In Nappy Heads, Lauryn Hills said, "never had to battle with a bullet proof vest". In Nicki Minaj interview with Rolling Stones, she was quick to share that she never had to sell drugs to join the rap game. Clearly she's build a career off of Lauryn Hills lyrics. Songs are written off of one line lyrics.

  14. ex. Jay-Z titled his CD off of a line in one of Tupac's songs: The BluePrint.

    "My lyrics are blueprints to money makin" - Tradin War Stores (Tupac Shakur).

  15. Jay-Z recently mentioned that Tupac Shakur was his second all time favorite rapper (during his interview with Charlie Rose).

  17. Nicki Minaj rap fast to prevent people from instantly catching on to the lines she's using from other rap artist.

    She fine tuning what has already been done, but she believes that it could've been done better and so she's out to prove that it will be done better because Nicki will do it better - but it has already been done and eventually everyone will notice that she too is a copy cat in search of fame.

  19. Yo this sistah is a fraud. Go on youtube and type "Nikki Minaj can't rap". Watch you see her corny ass bomb at free styling. She really sucks.

  20. Nicki knows how to play simon ses very well. I think Missy Elliot is her ghost writer.

    ReplyDelete
  21. @9:19 How are you going to be a rapper, but cannot free style? Most NICKI lipsyncs her rapping while she is performing live. I knew right there this broad is a JOKE!!!

  23. Missy isn't her ghostwriter. It's the same ghostwriter Lil Wayne uses.
