Forbes: “Nicki Minaj To Earn Millions From Pepsi Deal”

Published: Monday 19th Mar 2012 by David

In the heat of her hype, it’s  easy to forget how far Nicki Minaj has come from her days as a struggling MC.

For, putting her revival of Female Rap aside, her feats as an artist/aspiring mogul have been astounding to say the least.

From scoring a lucrative 360 deal with the folk over at Young Money , to negotiating her way into MAC‘s Viva Glam campaign, it’s clear to see that  her ‘rise to the top’ is down to her oft overlooked business savvy, and not her oh-so infamous ‘assets’.

Not convinced?

Then peep what Forbes have to say about her recent deal with Pepsi Co, below…

Speaking to the deal’s middle man Derek Jackson, the company confirmed:

Minaj will become the face of a new Pepsi beverage nearing its debut. He said the pact, which includes a commercial filmed in South America last month  is a multimillion-dollar deal.

Named ‘Pop’, the beverage’s commercial- which stars Nicki-  was shot in South Africa in February, and according to Jackson stands as a ‘seven figure commitment’, possibly the Rapper’s biggest deal to date.

He explained:

You’ll see the commercial probably in the next two months, That’ll be a segue into Pepsi’s ‘Pop,’ and she’ll be the face of the brand … it’s going to be explosive.

While the act a money makes by no means defines how successful they are- see 50 Cent– we can’t but commend Nicki on this achievement.

Because, unlike a certain Rihanna, Minaj seems to understand   that wigs, gimmicks and ‘microwave Pop’ can only take a girl so far, and if an act is too succeed in the long run- deals like these must be made today, to protect their finances tomorrow.

    People with endorsement deals get millions all the time. Nothing to see here besides a hyped up Nicki stan gushing over someone elses achievements all in the name of shading another artist. Typical TGJ mid-day garbage.

    truthhurts its so funny because the man who brokered the deal CONFIRMED it it a million dollar deal so you can fall back.

  8. Kim career DEAD ghostbuster March 19, 2012

    Nicki is determined not to go out like Lil’Kim who was in the game for all those years and don’t have nothing to show for it. Biggie (rest his soul) and Diddy should have told her to make plans for the future cus she won’t be a rapper the rest of her life. Now look at her Financially stressed da f** out. Can’t get a hit song, The money hungry I.R.S (the irony) on her ass… WHEW…Good luck Kim. Nicki you took the most important thing from Kim and thats how NOT to sink with the ship. You go girl…

  9. Onyx March 19, 2012

    I keep hearing these haters talking bout how missy gonna mop the floOr with nicki but you’re forgetting one thing… Missy and Nicki don’t have any beef fools!! It was Kim who had the beef and was talking how she gonna claim her crown and all that s*** talking and then she got the final nail in her coffin. Just because Kim likes to make everything a beef doesn’t mean more mature female rappers are always tryna tear each other down.
