Nicki Minaj: Hotter Than July

Tuesday, July 21, 2009

It is turning into a very good month for rapper Nicki Minaj, the female emcee in Lil Wayne's Young Money outfit. She's been burning up hot spots around the South with intimate performances that speak to her lyrical prowess as well as her sex appeal. Lil Kim comparisons not withstanding, this is Nicki's time.
But with the fall approaching, the hip-hop industry is churning toward a trifecta not seen in recent years as mega-weights Jay-Z, 50 Cent, and now, Lil Wayne all plan to drop albums in September.
Handicapping each contender is their eager-to-be released mixtapes that fans will gobble up on sight, which makes Nicki Minaj's profile even brighter -- and more crucial -- as she'll no doubt trade deliveries with the Codeine-sipping miser Weezy F. Baby herself.
If Nicki can deliver the momentum -- and even more fem fans to the movement -- look for Wayne to catapult her career next to his. But this summer is just as important for Nicki: She still doesn't have a label yet; her set "Beam Me Up Scotty," while good is understandably rough around the edges.
This is her summer: If she can't muster the pressure, she'll slide behind Drake and possibly whoever else is up and coming on the Young Money label.
Can she heat it up?

Im so lovin this chick right now!! She's my Girl Crush!! but my fear is that, like Shawnna, Nicki will gain a little recognition and will eventually, sooner rather than later, fade into the background. Shawnna had an EXCELLENT flow! but where is she?

Long gone are the days of MC Lyte, Queen, S&P and Moni. And even if she has moderate success, like that of Eve or Foxy or Kim, she runs a high risk of being quickly over-shadowed by male dominant "it" rapper of the moment.
But that won't stop me from checkin for her... I LOVE rootin for the underdog! Go NICK!!!!

She's different; beats are dope. It'll be interesting to hear a whole album from her.
