Nicki Minaj XXL impact on Hip-Hop

 
In honor of Hip-Hop publication XXL's 20th anniversary issue Young Money's first lady Nicki Minaj discuss her contribution to Hip-Hop giving deserving praise to Lil Wayne, JAY-Z, Foxy Brown, Eminem, Nas, Lauryn Hill, Slick Rick, Doug E. Fresh, Salt-N-Pepa, The Notorious B.I.G., Tupac Shakur, Snoop Dogg, Eazy-E, and Ice Cube for their influence. Nicki spits bars and she is such a dope artist I can't help but be in ore of all she has achieved as an artist. I adore Lil Kim as the greatest female rapper of all time, she set the bar, and Nicki Minaj continued to set the standard high.
 
'My role in hip-hop has been super unique because when my first album came out, there had been so much time where there wasn’t a female rap album out that went platinum. There wasn’t a big female rap presence right before I got in. So, my role was reintroducing the female rapper to pop culture. I aligned myself with a lot of brands and I was able to show that a female rapper can sell products. Whether it was the makeup, the lipsticks, whether it was the nail polish, headphones or anything like that. It just said, ‘You know what? We were overlooking female rappers for a long time.’ I don’t think we got that much credit. I think female rappers have always been dope and influential, but I think I sort of came in at a time where big business was paying attention, so I was able to capitalize off of a lot of deals and business ventures..'
 
Literally will not sleep when Nicki releases
the long awaited follow-up to 2014’s The Pinkprint.
