Since rising to fame back in 2007, Pop Princess Nicki Minaj has been on the receiving end on many a heated opinion.
From Britney Spears to Missy Elliott, it seems that everyone and their publicist has a little something to say about the woman whose debut album ‘Pink Friday‘ has outsold Rihanna‘s ‘Loud’ in the US.
Now , the rapper MC Lyte has told fans what she thinks of her.
Find out what she said below…
Lyte makes many valid points.
However, there is little doubt that her opinion will be met with fierce opposition from Minaj’s naysayers who refuse to accept that she is anything more than a ‘cheap gimmick’ , somehow ‘inauthentic’ because of her shameless love for glamour and Pop music.
It is this very mindset that has held many a Femcee back from broadening their creative horizons for fear of losing the respect of self proclaimed musical connoisseurs, who class anything upbeat and lighthearted as ‘fake’ and ‘unreal’.
Like Lauryn Hill, Salt ‘n’ Pepper and Missy Elliott before her, Minaj continues to redefine what it means to be a Female Rapper.
Only time will tell if her success will influence the next generation of Rap belles for better- or for worse.
