    I’m sorry she’s not the highest selling Rap Artist Lil’Kim has sold more albums and singles then she has… 🐝 “Bzzz” 🐝

    • CHINA January 16, 2019

      Lets give her a HUGE APPLAUSE for letting black girls know the way to success is :

      2. GET B*** IMPLANTS


      • Ri Ri January 16, 2019

        6 out of 8 of the things on your list also applies to lil kim. She doesn’t bleach her skin it’s make-up and lighting. Her complexion looks different on certain pictures and videos due to make-up and lighting. It’s not just Nicki, I’ve noticed that with several other artist and not just female artist.

      • Nick January 16, 2019

        Lil Kim is A Walking White Woman. Lol😹😹😹

      • ??? January 16, 2019

        @ China my dear, your whole rant describes lil kim to a plastic T lmfaoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

    • Lou-Andrew Rodriguez January 16, 2019

      You’re a delusional fool to say Lil Kim sold more than Nicki… Nick has sold over 100 million records.

      • Reality Check January 16, 2019

        Records or singles? Those are two different things and it’s nowhere close to 100 mil. You my friend are the delusional one.

      • Osheun January 16, 2019

        Actually it is. She’s about to the first female rapper to do so. With her album and single sales combined its about to be 100 million! Sorry to burst your bubble love!

      • Caleb January 16, 2019

        You mean other people made singles featuring Nicki Minaj and when you add a bunch of streaming and single sales in you can somehow reach 100 million. How many actual albums has she sold?

    • ??? January 16, 2019

      lmaooo bye gurl, lil plastic puppet isnt the highest selling anything, unless you count skin bleach & fake body parts lmfaooooo

    • Brooklyn January 16, 2019

      You are damn right Kim is the pioneer 🐝

    • Caleb January 16, 2019

      I don’t think so but Lauryn Hill sure as hell sold more albums than her and Missy Elliot is up there too.

  2. Barb-wire January 16, 2019

    Well no surprise here. Her legacy could never be undone.

    • CHINA January 16, 2019

      Clown. AS YOU SLEEP. Cardi is one step closer with her NUMBER 1’s that not everyone has (Nicki). Cardi is STEALING her legacy. S T E A L I N G. NICKI “IMPLANT” minaj’s time is up….the features have dropped, TOUR TICKET SALES – LOW, the album sales have DROPPED like her IMPLANTS (booty/breast). SHE IS A CLOWN. America got the Memo — SHE’S A CLOWN. Who wants there Daughter following her WHEN SHE’S 100% NOT REAL. FAKE

      • Ri Ri January 16, 2019

        Cardi isn’t the ideal role model either. I don’t care how real y’all say she is. Just because she reveals all her personal business does not make her someone to look up to. She’s an ex-stripper/ gang member, I’m sure everyone is praying their daughters turned out like Cardi.

      • ??? January 16, 2019

        lmaoooo @ China keep seething h0, the only clown around these parts is that ratchet knotted up clown whos still opening her legs to that bum with 1000 baby mommas lmaoooooooo

  3. Lou-Andrew Rodriguez January 16, 2019

    A queen in every right/ write 🙌🏼

    • Blaah January 16, 2019

      It’s “rite” dummy

      • ??? January 16, 2019

        lmfaoooo no its not dummy, its “RIGHT”. rite is not a word genius lmfaooooooooooooooooooo

  4. OurP January 16, 2019

    She aint hip hop its hip pop 🙈👏

  5. The Voodoo Queen January 16, 2019

    Listen, I’m not the biggest Nicki Minaj fan but I give 10’s where 10’s are due. She’s done the work for over 10 years. consistently. she deserves it.

    • Truthserum January 16, 2019

      One woman being pushed by the industry 10 years is the worst thing to happen Female that the standard now? Imagine if Cardi was being pushed for 10 years straight; no female rap unity and collabs with other women. What is there to praise exactly??

      • Ronnie January 16, 2019

        y’all been trying to push the false narrative that Nicki isnt for unity when she’s litterally worked with just about every female in the industry. Smh

      • Blaah January 16, 2019

        Compare This generation of female rap unity with that of 90s. It fails in comparison due to your pig ass fave. What other black woman has a platinum album in the last 10 years? Disgusting. You’re proud of Nicki closing doors on other females period. The tables are turning.

      • vicky January 17, 2019

        Whatever, check your facts, there was no female unity in rap to begin with , stop blaming Nicki, Trina and Foxy are the female rappers that she worked with that didn’t change on her like the others did. if you check her career is all about female unity, you are to blinded by hatred that you can’t see the trust

      • Cisco January 17, 2019

        So in other words you’re mad at the industry for capitalizing off of Nicki because she’s successful??? It isn’t Nicki’s job to put others on, the f*** you thought this was. Y’all swear y’all hate Nicki but y’all want her to collab with your faves 😂😂😂 Nicki was right, y’all are her sons. Y’all are some confused ass fans 😂

  6. Carlos santos January 16, 2019

    The same woman who attacked other black women comparing or calling them gorilla/monkey. Who likes to step on other females to stay relevant. Sorry but this looks paid off.
    Their are plenty of artists in rap that can be honored like Missy Elliott, Queen Latifah or even Lil kim who made nicki’s career happen.

    • Lou-Andrew Rodriguez January 16, 2019


      And no, they don’t deserve to be there because they’re not the highest selling female rappers.

      • Detruth January 16, 2019

        Kim and Missy have sold way more physical copies than minaj..ppl didn’t pay 9.99 a month to stream their albums we actually went to the store and bought 1 album for that price or more.

      • Truthserum January 16, 2019

        Maricon, you don’t care about female rap much less black women. You’re the reason why the Nicki hate train exists. Delusional af. White ppl buying Nicki records don’t make or break OUR standards of hip hop. The more she stands alone in the game the worse the hate train gets.

      • Caleb January 16, 2019

        They pioneered the genre though and Nicki isn’t the highest-selling. Lauryn Hill is. Adding in a bunch of singles where other artists are the leads doesn’t count.

    • Truthserum January 16, 2019

      Thanks Carlos it’s good to know ppl still use logic these days.

    • vicky January 17, 2019

      And where are they today, if they made such an impact why aren’t they mentioned or even considered? stop hating and move along.

  7. Beam Me Up Scotty January 16, 2019

    Some real b***-hurt people in here. Nicki Minaj has definitely put in the work over the last 10 years and deserves the respect. Congrats Nicki Minaj.

    • vicky January 17, 2019

      Love her, she deserves it .

  8. blaah January 16, 2019

    They featured the iconic picture with Lil Kim, Missy Elliott, Da Brat and Aaliyah first. I was there and saw it. Nicki and her team must’ve felt jealous and pulled a payola move. Nicki ain’t s*** especially with that clown ass look. Loool A Joke!!!

    • Dumb Ass H*** January 16, 2019

      They did she paid for that. She is one of the endorsers of the museum.

    • vicky January 17, 2019

      you sound stupid AF. lol why would Nicki be jealous? Honestly you haters just say anything.

  9. Truthserum January 16, 2019

    Nicki Minaj has never contributed more to hip hop than all the past legends. Just because she’s successful and got a p**y don’t mean s***.

    • vicky January 16, 2019

      And where is the past legends today, what exactly have they done? She has talent that is something you can’t take away from her, if the museum felt the previous legends did the more they would have been mentioned.

  10. Truthserum January 16, 2019

    At the end of the day, Nicki will always struggle with earning respect because every fibre of her being violates people’s moral code in so many ways. She’s an industry plant who relies on payola and media propaganda like this site to brainwash ppl instead of letting the music speak like other true artists.

    • Mj January 16, 2019

      You seem in love with Nicki , you’ve commented so much. Nicki made it so long off of her business savvy intellect. She runs herself like a competitive company. Even turned the hate she got in 2017 into fuel for a top 10 hit. Even when the industry turned away from her she still stood tall and survived on her own.

      • Blaah January 16, 2019

        Yet no Grammy noms. Face it, the industry and elite are bout to pull the plug. Barbz are a dying breed! #GoodRiddance 😩🙌🏽

    • vicky January 16, 2019

      She never relied on payola just pure talent payola queen is that new rat on the block, get your facts in order before acting stupid, Nicki worked hard, maybe you should try doing that instead of being a bitter internet troll.

  11. ??? January 16, 2019

    lmfaooooooo all these #RETARDIGANG bums are seething because dummi wont be remembered in the next 10 months, forget about the next 10 years.
    Has the dumb b*tch sold 250k albums yet??? lmfaoooooooooooooooooooooooo

    • vicky January 16, 2019

      blah blah blah, that is what you sound like, lil kim and her music died with biggie, lil kim didn’t do sh*t she doesn’t even look like kim anymore, if she did she would have been honored, stop hating and being bitter it is pathetic.

  13. January 16, 2019

    Nuff respect.

  14. i hate whyyte and blacck bitchess they both nt sht January 16, 2019

    He keep on dialing Nicki, like the Prince song

    celebrate the rap queen….10 years in the game….shoe her respect

  15. Dumb Ass H*** January 16, 2019

    Y’all know she paid for this right! She is one of the endorsers for the museum.

  16. Caleb January 16, 2019

    What did she pioneer though? And even the “highest selling female rapper” narrative isn’t all the way factual when it comes to album sales.

    • Blaah January 16, 2019

      She pioneered the first successful monopoly to exist in female rap. She also pioneered acceptable swaggerjacking with middle America. Congrats Nicki! 😃

    • vicky January 16, 2019

      Congrats Queen of rap, you did that, haters will hate, we love a winner, she is indeed the highest selling female rapper of all time, check your facts, she set the bar high after there was no females around that came before her, show some respect or keep your bitterness to yourself.

      • Caleb January 17, 2019

        Lauryn Hill sold more albums than her. THat is a fact.

  17. vicky January 16, 2019

    Are you that dumb?

  18. vicky January 17, 2019

    Congrats Queen of rap, you worked hard against all odds, you against the haters, people never want to give you credit i am glad that not all people are consumes with hatred towards you, this honor proves it, haters talk about female rappers before you, but where are they what exactly have they done? Nicki is the highest selling female rapper of all time, you are the best and you deserve all the blessings coming your way.

    • Caleb January 17, 2019

      Tgj should post a correction. She is not being honored as a pioneer or anything of the sort by the museum, as confirmed by the museum itself.
