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.
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.
