Nicki Minaj Breaks Female Rapper Record With ‘SuperBass’

Published: Wednesday 10th Aug 2011 by David

In what will be sure to rattle the cages of many of her naysayers, Nicki Minaj has once again surpassed the achievements of female rappers everywhere on the Billboard Hot 100.

This time with her single ‘SuperBass’.

Read more below…

This weeks #3 on the Billboard Hot 100, ‘SuperBass‘ is the highest charting single to be released by a female Rapper in the last nine years since Missy Elliot‘s ‘Work It’ reached #2 in 2002.

This comes as phenomenal news for the entertainer’s fans as the single has achieved this feat without the aid of a featured artist, highlighting Minaj’s ever growing star power.

Now certified double platinum, ‘Bass’ has sold more units that any single released by Rap Queen Lil Kim whose feud with the Pop star was overshadowed by the success of Minaj’s #1 album ‘Pink Friday’ which has sold over 1.5 million copies since its release in November 2010.

    Thats not a record. And Super Bass isnt a rap song. And Nicki isnt a rapper.

    Pink Fridays world wide sales:1.2million
    Hard Cores U.S sales: over 2million.

    “Missy Elliot’s ‘Work It’ had previously held the record.”
    _____________________________________________
    Missy still holds the record.’Work It’ got to No.2 on Billboard Hot 100 and ‘Super Bass’ is at No.3.

    I damn sure wish TGJ staff would stop calling this girl a rapper! She is no rapper by any stretch of the imagination… And since when does 1.2 million = double platinum? Did I miss something?

    And why is Lil Kim becoming synonomous with Nicki’s name everytime she’s posted on this site? Is Kim THE ONLY other female rapper ya’ll know?!? (Even though Minaj is NOT A RAPPER! She’s a pop talker/wanna be singer.

    You guys continue to write these ass kissing articles and I will continue to shade this fake b****.
    Missy Elliott’s Work it peaked at #2 on the Hot 100.
    Lil Kim’s Magic Stick peaked at #2 on the Hot 100.
    Those are ACTUAL HIP-HOP SONGS. Super Bass is straght pop.
    Lil Kim has a Grammy. Missy Elliott has a Grammy. Nicki doesnt even have a nomination of her own. She only wins BET Awards lol.

    @VICIOUS VIXEN

    Double platinum is the certification for super bass. 1.2 million is how many copies of the album was sold in the u.s.

  12. vicious vixen August 10, 2011

    Totally OFF TOPIC… Has anyone heard Chris Brown ft Ludacris’ “Wet The Bed”? I’m kinda digging that song!

    And has ANYONE heard when Bey is going to release a video for Countdown? I’m growin a bit impatient for that!

  13. Corey August 10, 2011

    And Lady Marmalade sold 5 million records worldwide. Nicki ain’t never doin it.

  14. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) August 10, 2011

    @VICIOUS VIXEN ‘Wet The Bed’ is Chris’ next single and it’s going to be sent to radios soon and I’m surprised you haven’t heard it yet.
    You’re most probably going to wait a lot for the Countdown video.The 3rd single is ‘End Of Time’ and it hasn’t even been released yet.So the 4th single will be out in months from now and I’m not even sure it’s going to be ‘Countdown’.

  15. KAT DELUNA FAN August 10, 2011

    The song is pop so she is a popstar !!!

    I wont congratulate this horrible ester dean/disney channel /bubble gum/rihanna sounding bullcrap

  16. Kim > Sicki Garbarj TGJ STAY PRESSED ON KIM ! O o p ! August 10, 2011

    Cash Money co-founder Ronald “Slim” Williams isn’t surprise. He says:

    “Nicki isn’t like any other female rapper. We knew she had the goods when Lil Wayne signed her. She’s not a female rapper — she’s a pop star who happens to rap.”
    Thats Means Kim Has Nothing To Worry About & She Didnt break any Record For Female Rappers !!!! O O P !!!!

  17. Steve August 10, 2011

    The people commenting have NO Idea what they are talking about. Super Bass is IN fact a Rap song if she is Rapping in it. Also if you read the Article right it says Pink Friday sold 1.2 Mil NOT Super Bass, SB has sold OVER 2 Million. And to the person point out Hardcore is 2X Plat. U do know it took Almost 5 Years for Kim to Accomplish that. And Nicki is Almost there & it hasn’t been ONE year yet. And lastly the Person pointing at Nicki NOT having a Grammy you do know Kim & Missy didn’t get that ONE Grammy till 8 Years after they started by Nicki’s Eighth Year I’m sure she’ll have more than One Grammy. – – Message to all the Dumbasses.

    More SHADY accounting from TGJ.
    Mixing single certification with album certifications.
    Making up album sales numbers.
    Claiming a record for a song in the same sentence they admit other songs have done better.

    [email protected], yall are really desperate.

  22. vicious vixen August 10, 2011

    @ASAP

    They’ve been playing “Wet the Bed” quite a bit on the radio lately. That’s why I was saying I’m really enjoying the song. I was just asking who else has heard it & their opinions on it 🙂

    And I am just being impatient for some new videos from Bey (that’s all) 😆 I’m just anxious to see what she’s going to do with that particular performance cause I just KNOW she’s gonna slay it!

    @ .

    Thanks for the clarification cause I was a wee bit confused! Lol!

  23. Smokey August 10, 2011

    What the hell is going on with TGJ. Don’t they know that Super Bass is a pop song plus Nicki could never hang with the big female rappers back in the day. She could never. But it’s nice that she sold alot of cd’s tho.

  24. RihannaNAVY August 10, 2011

    To be fair to Nicky as of August 2011, Pink Friday has sold 1,523,000 copies in the United States. (NOT 1.2Million)

    So TGJ is really mentally challenged and needs to get their facts right.
    Even when they kiss an artist’s ass they can t seem to get the numbers right.

  25. Oh b****.. August 10, 2011

    PF has sold 1.5 mill, and Lil Kim SHIPPED 2mill copies not SOLD. LIL KIM HAS NO TOP10 SOLO SONG OR A SONG THAT 2X PLAT AND HER S*** TAKES YEARS TO SALE, IT SHOULDNT TAKE THE “QUEEN” 5-10 YEARS EACH ALBUM TO GO PLAT OR 2X PLAT.

  26. Vee August 10, 2011

    Yea nicki has sold 1.523 million not 1.2 and congrats to nickj keep doing your thing Kim never could do what you doing

  33. BitchIcantevenspellwelfare August 10, 2011

    Look. There is no surprise that Nicki is a chart success. Of course she is. She performs songs that Taylor Swift, and the Kardashian twins love.

    Nicki is a POP artist. She is opening for Britney Spears. Nicki is getting her money–period. She is all about getting her money. She is trying to become a mogul-period. She is disinterested in creating classic hip-hop albums, being respected by the hip-hop elite, or becoming Legendary on the hip-hop landscape.

    When she released “Pink Friday,” she was letting everyone know that her ambitions were POP ambitions and she is achieving them. Done.

    I will continue to listen to Foxy’s “Broken Silence,” an album that Nicki will NEVER match artistically & Kim’s “Hardcore” if I want to hear dopeness.

    Nicki is what she is….POP-HOP. What?

    Get.that.money Nicki- “B**** I Can’t Even Spell Welfare”- from “Did It On’Em”

    Pink Friday 1.2 million

  35. C*** August 10, 2011

    To all of you dumb b****** ridding Kim’s old, nasty c***, Nicki does have a Grammy nomination. She was nominated last year for best Rap Peroformance by a Duo or Group with Ludacris for “My Chick Bad.” And if you’re going to criticize Nicki for being pop, Kim won her one and only Grammy for “Lady Marmalade” which is a pop song that she barely even contributed to. You all are just mad because Nicki is doing it better than any of these b****** have ever done it. So “Super Bass” is a pop-oriented, that doesn’t mean that Nicki isn’t a rapper. Listen to “Roman’s Revenge,” “Monster,” or “Blazin” if you want to hear her rap. Stop critizicing her based on a dumbass, biased oppinion supported by a half-assed, incorrect argument. Dumb c****.

  36. ??? August 10, 2011

    @The Naked Truth I Said Something Bout That Yesterday They Shade Nicki In Kims Posts & Kim In Nicki Posts This Whole Website Is FAKE Im About To Stop Coming On Here Because They Doing Smart S*** On Both Parts !

  37. iRene August 10, 2011

    Super Bass has As Many Rhymes, Similies, Metaphors, & Puns as any other Rap Song so JUST because it has a Poppish Beat doesn’t mean that it is not Consider Rap. Thats just like saying just because Kanye’s Old Music has a Techno Beat or that One album Wayne had that has a Rock beat that it can’t be considered Rap. F*** Outta Here. Congrats to Nicki I hope she has Many more 2X Platinum Singles to come.

  38. BURGER KING BURNT DOWN SO THAT’S WHY SKERIKREW IS HERE. (IS†ANN4GAGA) August 10, 2011

    I LIKE Nicki but Super Bass wasn’t a feature???

    Explain to me why Ester Dean is singing the chorus then.I agree with everyone saying Nicki is a popstar as opposed to a rapper.(not saying she’s untalented though.)

  39. ??? August 10, 2011

    @C*** Thank You Back Me Up Please They Is A JOKE Lil Kim Is Not The Queen She Claim She Is !

  40. YMCMB August 10, 2011

    I’m a univeristy student so I am in school f*** face and a feature is a feature none the less jackass. Look at David Guetta he says nothing in his songs yet he is the main artist? that’s what i thought shut the f*** up @???

  41. Malibu Barbie August 10, 2011

    this a POP song…. its alot HARDER for HARDCORE HIP HOP artists to sell like that… you keep throwing the world rapper around nicki is just a pop artist who strings words together that is why shes so mainstream.
    LIL KIM is a HIP HOP gansgta rapper. who outsold many female rappers in her prime… but we are in a different age now, so there is no point trying to undermine lil kim when it was kims swag,lyrics,delivery,career moves that helped guide nicki to where she is now. Missy and Kim combined did a great job. ppl are getting these accolades TOO EASY nowadays anyway.. like i said shes a pop artist, not a hop hop rapper ” alot of wack artists go platinum” – Queen Latifah … can u see a group of thugz in the hood bumping superbass???? or holding a pink friday CD no. shes POP. that is why she got it. shes on tour with britney spears for god sake. Kim went pop too but still kept it RAW. and never lost herself.

  42. THE QUEEN OF MUSIC August 10, 2011

    TGJ Please sityo yall tired asses down somewhere. This fake b**** will neva b on KIMS level. KIM didnt make pop records……Nicki does and thats why Super S*** is #3 on BB Hot 100. And please refrain from putting Gimmick Minaji n the same sentence with The Great Missy Elliott, The Iconic Lauryn Hill and THE UNDISPUTED QUEEN OF RAP…..LIL KIM “THE QUEEN BEE”!!!#thatsall

  43. dmac August 10, 2011

    I love Nicki Minaj but let’s please stop acting as if Lil Kim Isn’t one of the MOST SUCCESSFUL FEMALE RAPPERS of all time. Let’s not forget that she HAS grammys, & Multi-platinum albums (more than 1) under her belt..she has already proven herself…she may not be poppin no more but she was the epitome of a female rapper…her time is no more…now Nicki Minaj has to continue to break down barriers just as Lil Kim did in her hey day….Lil Kim is NO new comer to this game, she has ALREADY paid her dues…..FYI Lil Kim’s song “Magic Stick” has reached #2 on Billboard Hot 100 for 24 with NO VIDEO…so yea Missy Elliott & Lil Kim STILL has this record but much love & respect to Nicki Minaj

  44. Malibu Barbie August 10, 2011

    if i wanted to DIG UP RECEIPTS all of u would be slayed. lil kim has done soo f****** much and achieved alot. but that biased juice does not want to report that.

  45. THE GREAT LACEFRONCE. August 10, 2011

    All false hype. This gimmick won’t be relevant within 2 years..tops. And Shitty Friday has only sold 1.5 million ww?

  46. NATE August 10, 2011

    DEATH!! I’m still confused about the record she broke??? Missy song reached #2…. It seems silly putting “Work it” in the same sentence as “Superbass”.

    Missy was able to be inventive and creative and still authentic rap, while Nicki………

    Maybe in the UK Nicki is considered Rap, since Adele and Duffy are considered R&B over there, but I beg to differ here in the US.

  47. iRene August 10, 2011

    @Mia Do NOT Make up Lies. Kim has Never went Triple Platinum, She’s Never even went Double and “The Naked Truth” barely went Gold.

  48. goddess adele stan August 10, 2011

    BASIC POP SONG. BASIC WANNA BE RAPPER BUT SHE FAILED. SUPERBASS IS A GENERIC POP SONG ALA CUNTY PERRY. PERIOD AND U WILL DEAL.

    I CAN’T BELIEVE SOME IDIOTS DARE TO MENTION IT IN THE SAME SENTENCE WITH WORK IT BY THE GREAT MISSY ELLIOTT WHICH IS BY FAR A MASTERPIECE..

    I MISS U MISSY.. THE WORLD WOULD BE SO PERFECT WITH ADELE AND MISSY ON TOP OF THE CHARTS. NOW WE HAVE JOKES LIKE RIHONNA THIEFYONCE OR SLUTTY MINAJ..
    I CAN,T…

    “PRESS ROLLING IN THE DEEP” THEN GIFT MORE COPIES OF 21….LET’S reach 10 MILLIONS..

  51. noodles August 10, 2011

    @vicious vixen
    That’s my song! One of my favorites from F.A.M.E i think it’s his next Urban single.

    So back to Onika. How did she break the record? You only break a record when you surpass it. #3 is behind #2. And i expected it to do well because of it’s pop sound. But none of her stuff i consider real hip-hop(well for her) like Did It On Em and Momemt For Life ever do this well…people know how to sell. If its pop its a hit…where did Did It On Em go? Oh okay?

    But serious question is her album sales 1.2 mil WW or just in the US???

  52. ??? August 10, 2011

    @Nate They Messed Up Shes On Her Way To Tie With Missy & Maybe Get To Number 1 & @YMCMB I’m a univeristy student so I am in school f*** face and a feature is a feature none the less jackass.

    I LOVE NICKI, BUT SUPER BASS IS NOT A “RAP” SONG, IT IS A “HIP HOP SONG” WITH “SYNTH-POP” OVERTONES…

    SUPER BASS, SO FAR, HAS THE MOST RADIO AUDIENCE IMPRESSIONS BY A FEMALE RAPPER IN HISTORY – ACCORDING TO BILLBOARD, THE SONG GARNERED “128 MILLION” PLAYS LAST WEEK AND HAS BEEN PLAYED 11M TIMES SINCE THEN = 139 MILLION PLAYS…

    IN THAT CASE, IT MAY GO TO NUMBER ONE IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF WEEKS SINCE KATY’S “L.F.N” AND LMFAO’S “PARTY…” WERE IN THE 140M ZONE AND I DOUBT IT HAS GONE UP!!!

LIL KIM’S “HARD CORE” is a classic regardless of how many singles were released or how well they did on a rigged music chart! So what if “Super Base” sold 2 mil. I would take “QUEEN B*TCH, “NO TIME”, or “CRUSH ON YOU” over any song lifted from the PINK FRIDAY CD! ……..How Dare You *Black Rob voice*

    Ester isn’t credited in the Video because she’s NOT in the Video. & if you were the “Ester Dean” fan you claimed to be you would Follow her on Twitter & she opted not to be in Video nor Credited.

    Secondly Nicki HAS sold More Worldwide than she has in the US. She sold 1.5 US < 1.6 WW.

    And the reason Nicki has only sold 1.5 SO FAR is because her album has Only been out 8 Months Lady Gaga, Alicia, Jennifer they're albums have all be out for atleast 2 PLUS years. In 2 Years she IS gonna have more years.

  77. TALENT + SOUL = KING BEY & QUEEN ADELE (ADELE = 12 WEEKS AT NO.1 ON BB200 – KING BEY = FOUR SOLD OUT SHOWS in 4HOURS) August 10, 2011

    TLC’s “CREEP” = NO. 1 FOR FIVE WEEKS IN 1993
    (FIRST SONG BY A “HIP-HOP/SOUL GROUP” TO EVR GO NUMBER ONE)

    LAURYN HILL’s “DOO WOP (THAT THING) = NO.1 DEBUT ON HOT 100 IN 1998
    (FIRST *SOLO* FEMALE HIP-HOP SONG TO EVER GO NUMBER ONE – ALTHOUGH IT HAD NEO-SOUL & SOULINFLUENCES)

    MISSY ELLIOT’s “WORK IT” = HIGHEST CHARTING SINGLE BY A FEMALE RAPPER IN HISTORY
    (RECORD BREAKING – NO. 2 ON THE HOT 100 FOR 10 WEEKS)

    LIL KIM’s “MAGIC STICK”
    (SECOND HIGHEST CHARTING SINGLE BY A FEMALE RAPPER IN HISTORY)

    NICKI MINAJ’s “SUPER BASS” – SECOND HIGHEST CHRTING SINGLE BY A FEMALE RAPPER IN HISTORY…

    PEOPLE GET CONFUSED BETWEEN HIP HOP ARTISTS AND RAP ARTISTS…NICKI MINAJ IS A “RAP” ARTIST BUT SHE CAN ALSO BE CONSIDERED A “HIP HOP” ARTIST BECAUSE WE ALL KNOW “HIP HOP” ARTISTS DON’T JUST RAP, HENCE TLC…LEFT EYE RAPPED AND CHILLI AND T-BOZ SANG…

  78. ajm265 August 10, 2011

    some you haters kill me on here… super bass is also doing its thing on the R&B/HIp Hop charts so why would u just call it a pop song… anyways congrats to Nicki she deserves it shes a hustler …. and TGJ stop throwing shady at kims dusty….. let her old as fry

  79. iRene August 10, 2011

    @Lefty. Pink Friday went Platinum when “Your Love” “Right Thru Me” & “Moment 4 Life” were the Only Singles. & Super Bass is actually Nickis 4th Single. “Did It on Em” Wasn’t an Official Single Nicki sent out it Charted by itself (Without a Video) I may add. “Your Love” also went #1 Without a Video. Just Food for Thought.

  80. Queen Beyonce Stann August 10, 2011

    She’s Not By Herself In The Song, Since Ester Deen Sings The Chorus But Idk Why It Wasn’t “Super Bass Ft Ester Deen”

    & She’s A POP SINGER, Not A Rapper 😉

    Ummm Magic Stick by lil kim peaked @#2
    Work it by missy [email protected] #2
    And Lose Control with Missy & Ciara peaked @ #3 in like 2005…….So this post makes no sence!

    @vicious vixen
    Ikr! Wet The Bed>>>>No BS in my opinion. That song is gonna smash urban radio.

    And i’m confused did Onika sell about 1.6 WW? Or 1.5 milin the US than another 1.6 WW? Her stans are confusing me i thought it was just 1.6 WW with most of those being US sales.

  85. LEXUS!!! August 10, 2011

    GENRE WISE, “SUPER BASS” IS A “HIP HOP SONG” WITH “SYNTH-POP” OVERTONES…
    ___

    HIP-HOP/R&B/SYNTH-POP//ELECTRONIC – THAT IS THE SONGS COMPOSITION…

    MISSY ELLIOTS “WORK IT” – HIP-HOP/ELECTRONIC (YOU CAN HEAR THE ELECTRO BEATS IN THE CHORUS)

    LIL KIMS “MAGIC STICK” – HIP HOP/DIRTY RAP/MINIMALIST MUSIC AKA ALTERNATIVE HIP HOP WITH ELECTRO INFLUENCES

    LAURYN HILLS “DOO WOP (THAT THING) – HIP HOP/HIP HOP SOUL/R&B/BLUES-RAP
    ___

    SO WHY IS EVERYBODY JUMPING ONTO NICKI WHEN EACH OF THE “RAP” SONGS JUST MENTIONED WEREN’T JUST “RAP” SONGS – THEY ALL INCLUDED GENRE’S WHICH WOULD HELP THE SONG CROSSOVER!!!

  86. beelzebub August 10, 2011

    Well she is selling hip-POP … not unlike Will Smith, Ma$e & many other successful “rap” artists …

    Its all Love at the end of the day

  90. HaterzStayPressed August 10, 2011

    SMH at all of y’all. Some of you need to keep your tongues out of Kim’s A$$ before it get lost! LOL! KIM LOST AND KIM FLOPPED. AIN’T NOBODY CHECKING FOR KIM EXCEPT THE 10 OR 20 FANS THAT ARE ON TGJ. Did you guys even read the Billboard article?

    “Super” is also just the eighth rap single by a solo female to reach the top 10 in the chart’s 53-year history.

    Aside from “Super” and “Work It,” here are the other six single lady rappers’ hits who reached the top 10:

    M.I.A., “Paper Planes” (No. 4; Sept. 27, 2008)
    Lil Mama, “Lip Gloss” (No. 10; June 30, 2007)
    Missy Elliott, “Get Ur Freak On” (No. 7; June 30, 2001)
    Lauryn Hill, “Doo Wop (That Thing)” (No. 1; Nov. 14, 1998)
    Da Brat, “Funkdafied” (No. 6; Aug. 13, 1994)
    Neneh Cherry, “Buffalo Stance” (No. 3; June 24, 1989)

    Lil Kim’s ass ain’t no where to be SEEN in the Billboard article. It took 10 years for HARDCORE to get a double platinum certification. A damn decade? WTF? LOL!!! It took 9 months for Nicki to get there. Give credit where credit is due.

    If Nicki isn’t a rapper, then Lauryn Hill ain’t one and if Lauryn isn’t, Missy isn’t because they all have sang over 50% of their records if not more. #stayflopping #staymad

    Look, Kim had a bad go of it. Dudes did her wrong, Biggie chose Faith and Charli over her, she’s been in prison and back stabbed and kicked around. Po chile. I hope she can get a hit song in that top 10 so she and her stans can shut up and stop whining of Nicki Minaj and any other chick that comes up in the industry. Blah you chicks stay pressed over a woman that don’t even know you. Nicki is making her paper and doing what she loves. Hopefully, Kim can gain some semblance of a career and self respect. Just get over yourselves!

    Congrats to Nicki for a job well done.

  91. pop royalty (RUDE BOY) August 10, 2011

    okay !!! it’s good i guess ?!!!

    but nicki has a real long way to go if they will continue to compare her to an accomplished REAL rapper like LIL’ KIM !

    @Dollar$ign$kills
    it took kim two years to achieve us sales 2 million
    and pink friday has sold 1.5mil in the US alone, your facts are outdated
    so who knows how much pink friday will sell in the US 2 years after its release
    way more than hard core im sure
    and in todays age, its harder to sell albums

  97. Chris J August 10, 2011

    didnt ester dean co-write the song?

  98. HaterzStayPressed August 10, 2011

    @NS Look, you can label Nicki Minaj all you wanna. The industry labels her as a RAP ARTIST and she has broken or is coming to breaking records whether you like it or not. There ain’t a damn thing Lil Kizzy oops I mean Kim can do about it other than whine to her fanbase.

    And another thing. If Kim and Nicki are now label mates, who do YOU think the label will put their promotional dollars behind? If I were Kim, I would have went elsewhere because she will not have a fair chance at Universal. Nicki is QUEEN at Universal and that’s that.

    @KIM > SICKI GARBARJ TGJ STAY PRESSED ON KIM ! O O P !

    Gurl BYE with that nonsense. I’m not going anywhere. I think I like it here and will continue to post when I feel like it. You may not agree with what I have to say but I will say this – Nicki Minaj is on top right now and Kim stays on 121 FLOP AVE. Now, who knows where Nicki will be in 10 years. But right now? She’s on hit and Kim is on paypal. Cheers!! #staymad

  99. rihanna is the best! You will deal August 10, 2011

    @Slaydele. Yes nicki does pop but who first two mixtapes were rap mixtapes. You must not have heard about her in the come up underground. She could rap. She only crossed over to pop cuz she knew how to hustle. The largest consumers of hiphop music are whites by 60- or 79%. That’s who nicki wanted to target to.

  100. Kim > Sicki Garbarj TGJ STAY PRESSED ON KIM ! O o p ! August 10, 2011

    @Hater H** Please Sit down Cus If & When Kims New Album Comes Out What Will You Do When It Shits On Nicki’s Trash Gimmicks & Kim Been shitting on her so Ummm YOUR DISSMISSED !!!!

  101. PYTFROMAL August 10, 2011

    I doubt Pink Friday will sell as much as Hardcore. Hardcore has sold 3 million worldwide. It doesn’t look like Pink Friday has sold much of anything worldwide as she’s sold 1.5 million in the US and total sales still aren’t at 2 million.

  102. NICK August 10, 2011

    all rite rihanna is the best! you will deal, u better preach girl !!! u said that !!!! only whites support, yes yesssss..THEY REALLY DO!!!!

  103. Kim > Sicki Garbarj TGJ STAY PRESSED ON KIM ! O o p ! August 10, 2011

    @Hater H** Nicki Said she Not Doing Features For 2yrs & No Collabs On Her Next Album That B**** gonna be Gone & Kim Still Gonna Be The Queen ! Nicki Is The Queen Of Being relevant & Swaggajackin Gimmicks !

  104. rihanna is the best! You will deal August 10, 2011

    @Pytfromal This is an digital era where selling is harder to come by and everyone takes music illegally unlike the 90’s when it wasn’t. 1 million is good for a female rapper in 2010. That’s a huge accomplishment. Lil Kim prolly wont be able to even see those numbers again. Her mixtape black friday supposedly only went gold. If she can’t even sell a mixtape over 100k she prolly can’t sell an album.

  105. Those That Cannot Do, Stan August 10, 2011

    Good for Nicki.

    She keeps her haters pressed and thats how it should be.

    If they ain’t foaming at the mouth you ain’t doing it right.

    Imagine if you all ignored the chick you hate so much, she might actually disappear. Instead you stay clicking on her name, watching her videos, reading her articles and feeding her machine. So congrats…you are part of the reason she’s out and thriving.

    Kim was in the game for years and folks compare her total album sales to someone who’s only been around 2 years.

  106. Kim > Sicki Garbarj TGJ STAY PRESSED ON KIM ! O o p ! August 10, 2011

  107. iRene August 10, 2011

    Nicki never Released, Check It Out, Did It On Em, or Girls Fall Like Dominoes as SINGLES her self. The Radio released them, Nicki’s only Formally Released “Your Love”, “Right thru Me” “Moment 4 Life” “Super Bass” & Up next “Fly”.

  108. HaterzStayPressed August 10, 2011

    @KIM > SICKI GARBARJ TGJ STAY PRESSED ON KIM ! O O P !

    Oh gurl you are as delusional as they come. At least Beyonce stans got reason to stan. Beyonce on her worst day is still slayin on the charts (not that I like her but I do respect her and give credit where credit is due). Lil Kim has not earned any respect to be given. The dumb b**** let men dictate her every move and they all ended up runnin’ through her ass – literally. Then abandoned her. ALL OF THEM. Po’ thang.

    I truly hope Kim’s album can garner a top 10 JUST FOR YOU. So you can get your Lil’ Kim d**** and have fun with yourself. Party all night if you want to, hun! As for me? Well, I’m just gonna sit back and laugh at you because you are truly pathetic. You’re not even worth the font sweetie. All mad because Nicki stay winning. You and Kim need to get a job. I hear Walmart in your area is hiring. If you’re in the UK, try Harrods?

    *poof* #staydum #staymad #staypressed

  109. Kim > Sicki Garbarj TGJ STAY PRESSED ON KIM ! O o p ! August 10, 2011

    @Hater Am I the only one who really, really hates Nicki Minaj? You’d think so based on only a smattering of anti-Nicki talk on ye ole interwebz, compared to a torrent of anti Ke-dollarsign-ha fury and all the hate of other comparable slutwave artists.

    For example: There are a mere 1,500 members of the “I hate Nicki Minaj” Facebook group whereas over 5,000 hate Ke-dollarsign-ha and two anti Katy Perry groups have 4,000-plus members each.

    Yet there absolutely is no more annoying personality in current popular music than Ms. Minaj. Her fashion, her flow, her dumb little voices, her stupid f****** name — Nicki Minaj is the trashiest, most annoying act going.

    Here’s a complete catalog of why…

    Her Stupid F****** Name

    Yes, I prefer the classic double-K spelling of Nikki but that’s not really my issue. We even have a Nicki around the office and she’s OK. But Minaj? This chick’s real name is Onika Tanya Maraj, which sounds like it could do the job. Instead, she switched a few letters to make it sound vaguely dirty — Ménage obviously being a French loanword co-opted to mean threesome. It’s trashy as hell, and every time I hear it I think it sounds like a really dumb pun. At the very least it makes it impossible to take her seriously.

    Yes, lots of pop tarts play the hoochie game. It sells, I get it.

    However, it’s doubly annoying that Nicki goes and gives Vibe a quote about how she doesn’t want or need to w**** it up. Not true — starting with that annoying name.

    Speaking of her claims about not using s**…

    Her Lack of Respect for Her Obvious Direct Influences
    “When I grew up I saw females doing certain things, and I thought I had to do that exactly,” she says. “The female rappers of my day spoke about s** a lot… and I thought that to have the success they got, I would have to represent the same thing. When in fact I didn’t have to represent the same thing,” Nicki said.

    This is an obvious shot at ladies like Lil’ Kim who is too old, deaf and incarcerated to play the part of competitor anymore anyway. You’re basically the only chick in the game right now, Nicki, so, please, show a little f****** respect for the person you stole your entire black Barbie image and girly-girl flow from.

    Speaking of her flow…

    Her Awful Verse on “BedRock” Might Be The Worst in the History of Rap

    Look, “BedRock” is a shitty song to begin with — the surest sign yet Young Money has become the next Bad Boy — but it’s Nicki Minaj’s shitty verse that really makes it f****** unlistenable. Yes, Gudda’s stupid line about being “that Red Bull” is trite and Lloyd’s T-Pain impersonation bothers me, but it’s Nicki singing about being “the bestest” off the top (is the next line actually “like asbestos” — that’s what I’ve always thought?) that really f****** kills it.

    Like most people, this was the first time I heard Minaj, and I still remember the immediate sense of repulsion I felt when she opened her mouth to do that stupid little kid verse.

    Again, she got a 360 deal with s*** like that.

    Well, that and a pretty face, thin waist and huge buns, as Mr. Mix-A-Lot would say. Speaking of those buns…

    Whatever that Stuff on Her Ass is, It’s Ugly

    Some people say Nicki Minaj got ass implants. Others say she uses b*** pads. She, of course, denies there’s anything unnatural involved in the most condescending way possible, “People will pick anything to talk about, and that happens to be the thing at the moment.”

    Whatever it is, I don’t like it. Hey, I like Kim Kardashian, J.Lo and Beyounce as much as the next guy, but Minaj’s plastic parts are just gross. Disturbing, really. It’s the sort of thing that can totally invert a boner — which is dangerous.

    Speaking of turning people on…

    She Uses Trumped Up Claims of Bisexuality to Sell Records

    Nicki walks a really, really fine line with her sexuality. On one hand, she wants guys (and some sympathetic women) to totally think she’s bi if they find that s***. On the other hand, she claims an appreciation for the female form but says doesn’t actually hook up with chicks, which is a good way to not alienate slightly more conservative fans.

    She says it’s about “no labels” but I don’t for a second buy that she means that in any way beyond the marketing implications.

    Sorry to the ladies at B**** Magazine, but Minaj isn’t for real with this — it’s not that she won’t “risk her career” but is dropping “clues” about it — it’s that she’s not that into girls, she just wants to sell records.

    Or maybe I should put it this way: I hear she really wants to date Anne Heche.

    But speaking of marketing gimmicks…

    She Co-Opted the Susan G. Komen Foundation’s Pink Friday Event to Promote Herself

    Nicki sure knows how to work the media — witness the situation where she scored tons of free ink by doing a little PSA for the breast cancer-fighting Susan G. Komen association the same week her record was dropping. The group’s event, and her album, were both called Pink Friday.

    What exactly did Nicki do to “help”? Well, she issued a statement and gave a brief interview via Skype — in exchange the group disseminated her statement to their giant media list and played one of her shitty videos on their webcast.

    “I fully support the efforts of Pink Friday and the goal of raising funds to support Susan G. Komen for the Cure and their charge to bring an end to breast cancer,” said Minaj. “I am pleased to be associated with the Pink Friday initiatives and to raise awareness amongst fellow African American women who are often the hardest hit by breast cancer.”

    While it makes sense that the Komen group would be excited to have a star on-board — especially if they know very little about her totally offensive career — I can’t seem to find what, if anything, Ms. Minaj did to help the cause besides issuing a brief statement of support and a short interview from the comfort of her own home. No “such-and-such will be donated,” no public appearance, just a few words of support typed by her publicist and a little chat on video with a friendly interviewer.

    Yeah, this was her “contribution” to the cause.

    Not bad in exchange for getting to plug the name of her album twice in that statement, which was widely distributed to media!

    So tacky. And so very Nicki.

  110. Them other chicks are superficial (queenbey) August 10, 2011

    Oh the LIES THEY TELL

    Check It Out was indeed released as a single from Nicki’s record label in November of 2010

    Did It On Dem was indeed released ad a single in April of this yr, it was sent to urban radio from her camp

    She performed Check It Out on Davide Letterman, Regis &Kelly and SAID HERSELF that it was her new single.

    Y are u in denial????

  111. Kim > Sicki Garbarj TGJ STAY PRESSED ON KIM ! O o p ! August 10, 2011

    @You Nicki H*** That Like Did It On Em

    “Shitted on em…put ya #2s in the air if you did it on em…”

    Why It’s Absurd: Let’s get this straight: she wants us to put a number two in the air to signify our successful crapping onto someone else? We shudder at the impending influx of poop-related incidents in our local high schools once little girls get a hold of this record. To Nicki’s credit, she has defecated on a lot of people who swore she’d never be more than that chick Maino was trying to m***** on camera a couple years back. But this hook? For one, it just sounds like something you’d come up with in the studio under a severe case of writer’s block. More importantly, it falls far behind Jay-Z and KRS One for some of the greatest rap lyrics to even use the number two. Now that’s some Elias Sports Bureau s*** for ya.
    Line: She ain’t a Nicki fan that b**** is def dumb/ you ain’t my son you my muthafuckin stepson”

    Why It’s Absurd: This song is chock full of Nicki’s inability to decide if her rivals are her sons, daughters, half-cousins or inbred godsisters. In the annals of disses that would send would-be insulters to their caves, saying “you’re my stepson” is pretty tame. Unfortunately, the insults to our ears are much more vicious.

    Line: “If you could turn back time…Cher/ you used to be here now you gone…Nair”

    Why It’s Absurd: Ladies and gentlemen, this is the line where Pink Friday jumped the shark from mediocre, soft album to God-awful lyricism wrapped in Hello Kitty gift wrapping. She rhymed “Cher” with “Nair” which is bad enough. But the set up? “If could turn back time…Cher” is beyond absurd. “I will always love you…Whitney” is much more poignant.
    THIS CHICK IS GARBAGE !!!!!!!!!

  112. Them other chicks are superficial (queenbey) August 10, 2011

    *Check It Out was released September of last yr

    And Did It On Them March of this yr……

  113. TMack August 10, 2011

    I could of swore that super bass was a pop song. How do you compare hardcore to pink Friday? One is hip hop the other is pop. Funny is if this pink Friday album was made back when hardcore came out it wouldn’t have made any money. But the hardcore album would be a gem if it was made in this era right now…..Big different stop hyping that pop artist up she is wack..

    Why throw KIM shade in the article. Crazy. Minajes songs are straight pop. Her album singles are not rap/hip-hop. She’s a bootleg KIM/Gaga. Stop with the madness. Seriously.

  118. nice_gurl August 10, 2011

    That isn’t really a record. Only when she surpasses Missy Elliot’s record will it be a record. I like Superbass, but to me it is a pop song and not really rap. Though she does rap, it sounds more pop to me.

    Wait hold up. Are you guys seriously writing dissertations as to why you don’t like a particular artist/celeb? Uh, children are dying in Somalia, people are hungry in the USA, unrest in the UK, global warming and worldwide debt crisis – and you are writing a damn thesis as to why you don’t like Nicki Minaj?

    OK I was just joking around before but now I see that you are the type that would probably boil a bunny and stalk someone because you don’t like them. I mean, wow.

    KIM > SICKI GARBARJ TGJ STAY PRESSED ON KIM ! O O P ! look everyone will have their moment in the sun. Some longer than others. Who knows where Nicki will be next year. What we all know and can agree upon is that Kim has not had a hit in many, many years and she did more damage to her career than any one man could ever do. Kim shoots herself in her own foot all the damn time and it’s all her fault.

    Your long ass post scared me. You need help. Seriously…. You care more about your dislike over some b**** you never met than yourself.

    I’m gonna ease out of this thread slowly. I worry for you… God Bless. It’s alright hun… Kim will be back!

    & I swear You Nicki Sheeps Are Hypocrites Cus When a Nicki stans Writes long Ass paragraphs Talking S*** About Kim Yall have Nothing To Say !

  127. Somerandomguy August 10, 2011

    YOu guys are stupid. She makes one popy kind of song and you brand her a pop artist… Every other song she has ever made is hip hop, Super Bass is hip hop. Just because the video clip is filled with pink and dancing doesn’t make it a pop song.

    Anyone hating on Nicki Minaj needs to understand that there is no magic reason as to why we love Nicki, it is her MIXTAPES! If your comparing Kim to Nicki don’t use her album songs use her mixtape songs. You guys are ridicolous Nicki is a rapper and you guys are just ignorant.

  128. Somerandomguy August 10, 2011

    This site is full on Lil Kim fans hahahaha mad cause she took the spot? Oh I know you mad cause Nicki took the spot!

  129. BitchIcantevenspellwelfare August 10, 2011

    “Mixtape” Nicki is dead. Why do we insist on keep bringing that up? Nicki used “mixtapes” as a stepping stone–precisely what mixtapes were originally intended for.

    Nicki has moved on. She is a pop-hop empress. She is getting her money. Nicki doesn’t “rep” hoods, concern herself with hip hop “authenticity,” nor over-concern herself with whether or not her music is “respected.” Nicki is on the proverbial paper trail. Her clan are Britney, Katy, Ke$sha, and Taylor.

    What’s the problem?

    The rest is a wrap.

    Just because she rhymed her words in that annoying song doesnt mean shes a rapper! Did that make Madonna when she rapped in “American Life” ? LOL

    SUPER BASS, SO FAR, HAS THE MOST RADIO AUDIENCE IMPRESSIONS BY A FEMALE RAPPER IN HISTORY – ACCORDING TO BILLBOARD, THE SONG GARNERED “128 MILLION” PLAYS LAST WEEK AND HAS BEEN PLAYED 11M TIMES SINCE THEN = 139 MILLION PLAYS
    _______

    This is more than they play the so called queen Rihanna songs.

  147. GangsterA August 11, 2011

    Nicki fans are hypocrites. The call Kim fans haters but they been doing most the hating on Kim

  150. The Naked Truth August 11, 2011

    “Now certified double platinum, ‘Bass’ has sold more units that any single released by Rap Queen Lil Kim whose feud with the Pop star was overshadowed by the success of Minaj’s #1 album ‘Pink Friday’ which has sold over 1.5 million copies since its release in November 2010”

    Make up your minds TGJ one minute Kim is the Queen of paypal…then She’s the Queen of RAP….then Nicki is the Queen of RAP (With a pop album)…Then Nicki is a “Pop star”.

    Seriously is it THAT hard to find decent writers for this site? oh that’s right, you have to PAY for decent writers.

    Anyways like I said I have respect for BOTH ladies and this SHADE is getting OLD & TIRESOME!

    (SideNote) You notice the post with Nicki in them and NO Kim Shade barely get’s looked at ,mentioned, or commented on?

    But the post with Kim in them that DON’T mention anything about Nicki are ALWAYS talked about and have alot of comments…..Kim has built a STRONG/LOYAL fanbase! Don’t yall forget it.

  151. RHI RHI IS QUEEN August 11, 2011

    I HOPE NOW GRANDMA KIM WILL FINALLY TAKE A SEAT SOMEWHERE AND LEAVE THIS GIRL ALONE.. NIKKI HAS ACHIEVED MORE IN 2 YEARS THAN GRANNY KIM HAS IN 15 YEARS, NIKKI IS THE NEW QUEEN OF HIP HOP.. GET OVER IT

  152. RHI RHI IS QUEEN August 11, 2011

    ITS FUNNY HOW IN 2001 WHEN KIM RELEASED HER 2ND ALBUM EVERYBODY WAS SAYIN SHE WENT HOLLYWOOD AND WENT TOO FAR POP.. NOW ALL OF A SUDDEN WHEN NIKKI ACTUALLY ACHEIVES WHAT KIM WAS TRYING TO ACHIEVE BACK IN 01 BY BEING A CROSSOVER ARTIST KIM’S FANS WANNA HATE…DONT BE MAD, KIM WANTED TO BE A POP STAR AS WELL BUT MADE THE MISTAKE CALLED “HARDCORE” THAT FOREVER RUINED HER CHANCES FOR THAT

  153. Malibu Barbie August 11, 2011

  156. im breezy beycuz August 11, 2011

    Hahaha all you haters are soooo mad and I love it nicki is breaking records and lil kim has yet to put out any good music!!! Nicki minaj is the queen of rap she is not a damn pop singer did it on em is rap romans revenge is rap moment for life is rap stop hating!!!! All those features shehas done over the past 2 years are all rap!!! You females hate on nicki because you want to be her sorry she wins and you loose ! You haters said nicki would flop???? Did she flop???? He’ll no dumb assss hoeeeeesssss #team nicki

  157. love me some nicki haters :) bitchs August 11, 2011

    Magic stick had a 50 feature when 50 cent was the best raper alive at the time so sorry kim stans that song doesn’t come close to super bass and if you read the article above losers you’d see that super bass has sold more than any lil kim record lmao wow and kims hits are from 10 or more years ago and the haven’t sold 2 million?? She sucks with her old crusty ass! Nicki had surgery but she looks great kim had some and she looks old and weird lol why can’t you haters just give nicki credit she is number 1 now and the gretest female rapper of our time duh who else is doing anything??? Rasheeda? Trinna?? Ummm noooooo

  158. lola August 11, 2011

    YOU F****** HATERS NEED TO STOP LYING! Nicki Minaj has sold 1.5 million copies of her f****** album not 1.2! Why the hell are y’all making up numbers! Do your damn research first! And Lil KIm has never f****** sold 3 million copies of any damn album! Pink Friday is in the f****** Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 200 ALBUM CHARTS AFTER F****** 8 MONTHS OF BEING OUT!

    You guys need to just admit the fact that Nicki is doing it big now-a-days and that n***** b**** Lil Kim aint s***! How is Nicki not a rapper? Again, do your damn research? How come y’all don’t say Rihanna, Kesha, Britney, Janet, and JNO aren’t singers????

  159. lola August 11, 2011

    AND YTF CAN’T NICKI DO POP AND HIP-HOP?????? Look at where it’s f****** gotten her? It seems like you stupid n****** are so close-minded and believe she should just do that ghetto hardcore rap s*** like Lil Kim’s w**** ass does and she shouldn’t. Nicki is versatile and creative! She doesn’t give a f*** about what anybody has to say and that’s why she’s so successful. Nicki’s album has plenty of straight hip-hop tracks on it like Here I Am, Romans Revenge, Moment for Life, Blow Ya Mind, Did it On Em, and I’m The Best!!!! Plus, her flow is ridiculous and she has a distinctive rapping voice. While Nicki is popular in mainstream music, Lil Kim will only have those hoodrats that are on welfare supporting her!

    And IF/WHEN these women ever collab All of us caught up in this Stan war will looke Mighty Stupid!

    this is one of the worst songs that i have ever heard and she is not a rapper.

  170. rin August 11, 2011

    Superbass is a POP song …. if anything this girl is hurting the female rap game… because it is soooooo damn waterdown and poppish….. Missy Elliot “Work It” was HIP HOP down to the dancing… lyrics…. the whole song however Missy didnt have to sell herself out to get Hits. this is why the rap game is f***** up now cause its turning artist into POP artist…. so they can appeal to to a white teenage based audience… congrats on her achievement… but ” the cars that go boom” was 10 times harder than some damn super base. child please.

  171. wajid August 12, 2011

    this isnt even a rap songgg lmfaoo its pop wth and kim won plenty of awards. nicki only won bet awardss

  175. DevTheBarbie November 26, 2011

    No matter how you guys spin it Nicki Minaj is a rapper. Super Bass is a rap song, it may have a pop sounding beat, but Nicki Minaj is rapping on it. Just because an artist is versatile enough to branch into other genres of music, doesn’t mean they aren’t the original genre that started out with. That Grammy award that Lil’ Kim has is a Pop award for a pop song. Does that mean Lil’ Kim is a pop artist? Unlike Lil’ Kim, Nicki Minaj has never been nominated for a Pop award. Why? Because she’s not a pop artist. There is a reason Pink Friday wasn’t on the pop charts. Stop hating, because Lil’ Kim has done her fair share of pop songs. Congratulations Nicki! Breaking records, and making your mark on the female rap game. IT’S BARBIE B****!

  176. Will Rose March 14, 2012

    People don’t want this woman to have ANY success. Lol. Whether Super Bass is a “pop” or “hip hop” song (It’s actually an urban crossover song meaning that it’s a hip hop song that crosses over into pop.), it came from a hip hop artist. Nicki could sing an entire ballad without spitting a single verse, but she’s still classified as a hip hop artist and if that went multiplatinum today it’d still be considered a song from a hip hop artist.

    If you don’t like Nicki, that’s fine. I can respect that, but nothing you all say can take away the fact that she broke a new record. You can call her a pop, hip hop, country, blues, jazz artist for all I care, but numbers don’t lie and neither does the facts.

  177. William Prieto August 9, 2012

    Umm yall just hate Kimberly Jones. Magic Stick is 3X plat. Don’t even count her singles with Biggie. How Many Licks is her biggest seller to fate u imbicil
