6 Reasons Why There Is No M.C. Like Nicki Minaj

She is a queen in her own right.

nicki minaj

From people not wanting to play her music on the radio, and living in a basement. From losing everything in a house fire to crying through losing her first child. Nicki Minaj has been through it all and has come out on the other side wiser and stronger. She is one of the greatest female rappers in hip-hop today. Standing beside greats like Lil' Kim, Missy Elliot, Queen Latifah etc. Nothing has come easy for her and she would tell you in a heartbeat that in life there is no handouts or an easy rode. If there was I'm assuming she would have taken it a long time ago, but here are 6 reasons this woman is a badass in everything she does.

1. No one rhymes like she does

Nicki not only brings the hammer but she does so in an animated entertaining way.

2. She believes in female empowerment.

Nicki has told many girls old and young to never let your circumstance define you and don't lose your dream for a man.

3. Has won Best Female Hip-hop artist seven times

BET has given Nicki awards after awards because her fans made sure she was recognized as the great MC she is.

4. Nicki is diverse

Her lyrics are for people of many different ethnicities and backgrounds.

5. She has gone toe to toe with male rap artist and won.

Nicki has made grown men shiver in their boots with her comebacks.

6. She's dedicated to the grind of being the best

Nicki and her former flame, Safaree, has admitted to taking the money received from her mixtape and putting it back into her music. She didn't spend a penny of the money she received from it, living off her savings for months. Not many people are that dedicated.

In short, Nicki has grind just as hard as the male MCs (maybe even harder) and is no one who flows like hers. Please don't argue with me.

Dear Los Angeles...With Love,

After packing two oversized suitcases and two carryons with all the boho chic clothes I thought I needed to travel across the country for my dream internship, I quickly realized that although I may look like I belong out in the entertainment capital of the world there was a lot more to it than Free People dresses and fanny packs.

Dear Los Angeles...With Love,
September: Los Angeles

Ever since I was younger I dreamed of moving out to California. There was something so amusing about being in the hub of it all that bursts with passion and artistry wherever you look. After a trip to LA when I was a sophomore in high school for dance, I fell even more in love with this utopia of a city and from that moment on, Los Angeles was that light at the end of the tunnel.

The Madness of March Madness

It is March and with it comes madness, and with that madness comes the exhausting debate on whether or not college athletes should get paid.

Things To Do In Austin Over Spring Break

From swimming holes to SXSW, I got you covered.

Spi Abroad

With spring break quickly approaching in the next couple of weeks for high school and college students, most will be heading home to spend time with family and friends, while others will be going to explore new places such as the beach or someplace new to go. Austin has been ranked in numerous lists of best cities to visit and move to in the U.S, but having been born in raised in Austin, I can tell you everything there is to do.

With spring break around the corner, it's time to look at some ground rules. We are used to seeing insane partying in Panama City Beach and other Florida locations. We have an image in our minds of what the perfect Spring Break is as depicted in countless movies. We are ready to party hard. With that in mind ... we all wanna make it back alive to continue on our path of this wonderful journey for a college education.


1. Rally. Do you really want a hangover at 8 p.m.? I don't think so.

2. Buy souvenirs. I know you want a new tank top to wear every day. 

3. Spend most of your hours on the beach. You don't want to come back from Spring Break with no color. Being the pale friend is no fun.

4. Take a ton of pictures. These will help you remember the week for years to come.

5. Remember to have #NOREGRETS. What happens on Spring Break, stays on Spring Break. (The Vegas Rule.)


1. Don't do anything in public that you wouldn't want your mother seeing a picture of. Your friends will take pictures, I promise. You don't want this as wedding blackmail years later.

2. Don't get sick in public. If you don't feel good, go back to your hotel.

3. Don't leave any friends behind. They most likely won't be comfortable with the area. They may not even speak the native language.

4. Don't get caught. Take this whichever way you want.

5. Don't break the 'Vegas Rule'. I don't care if it is 10 years down the line.
