Barbie-Q: Nicki Minaj puts on pounds as album awaits

Tuesday, December 15, 2009

When Nicki Minaj first hit the scene a couple of years ago, the hip-hop community was beside themselves at how this "model chick" who looked like she belonged on the cover of a magazine or a video vixen could have rap skills lethal as swords.
While the male-dominated music industry sneered at her she continued to hone her craft, and in August of this year was finally inducted into Young Money, the hottest rap outfit since the 1990s power trio of Bad Boy, Death Row and Suave House.
With the ascension of label mate Drake , Nicki Minaj has seen the pressure rise as her album approaches. What has also risen is her waistline.
Nicki is getting thicki.
Of course, we could say the New York-born rapper is not the size she was when she started, but who is? (Seen E-40 lately?) But it may explain why Nicki has calmed down the sex appeal talk recently in interviews and even, in her latest ryhmes. Don't get me wrong, she's still "Barbie" or whatever she calls herself. But it's just that we now know that she likes her Barbie-Q.
