On the heels of the hotly anticipated sophomore LP from Nicki Minaj, ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded’ (April 3rd), the colorful rapper has already proclaimed its prolific greatness as one that will be “…important for hip-hop and pop culture”.
Wow, what flamboyantly large shoes Nicki is challenging ‘Roman’ to fill.

In an interview with MTV the multiple-personailtied MC assured her Barbz that she “…knows what the people need right now,” and that her sophomore LP would be a “doozy.”
What a way to spark excitement in a cloud of doubt surrounding the fact that her recent single’s have failed to meet critical expectations. The ‘Starships’ singer/rapper is not only confident in her eccentric brand, but also the credibility of her album–an album that will hopefully illuminate Nicki’s frame of mind during its inception.
We here at ‘TGJ’ cannot wait to hear what the First Lady of Cash Money has cooked up this time around. For as much flack as she receives for diversifying her sound to create a sonic ‘civil union’ between hip-hop and pop, hats must be tipped in her direction for her unique ability to capitalize on mainstream pop culture the way only a handful of female MC’s have been able to do. Second only to Missy Elliot in terms of commercial success and suburban acceptance, Nicki Minaj’s statements have only upped ‘Roman Reloaded”s ante to claim the top spot!
