Nicki Minaj has told MTV that because the music industry, and Hip-Hop, is run by men, she doesn’t get the recognition she deserves as an MC, and is “better than most of the male rappers” out there.
This time, I care less about the acceptance and more about me being the lyrical, ill bitch that I am. Knowing that I am lyrically better than most of the male rappers out there…. Yes, I’m gonna say it. I don’t get the credit that I deserve.
Like “Up In Flames” on The Re-Up. If a dude was on that song with me everyone would have talked about it and they would say “Oh, who had the best verse?” or “Blah Blah blah.” But, when I put a song out by myself… Men run the hip-hop game, let’s be honest… They not gonna recite a female. They just feel funny and it is what it is.
What do you think?
Nicki Minaj uses her “Freedom” to run through various spots in the UK. The Re-Up is available now.
Alicia Keys performs “Girl On Fire” with Nicki Minaj at the 2012 MTV VMA’s. Nicki took home Best Female Video for “Star Ships”.

Waka Flocka, Nicki Minaj, Tyga and Flo Rida make them bad bitches “Get Low”. Triple F Life available now.
Nas is blowing up the Hip Hop scene again. Nasir’s Life Is Good album dropped today and he stopped by 106 & Park to show some love and plug his new album. After the jump, Nicki Minaj and Mary J. Blige phone in.
What the fuck is the deal with Nas and Nicki Minaj in this video? Anyway, Chris Brown offers some assistance with “Right By My Side”. Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded in stores now. #confusedaboutnasinthevideo
March 9th marked the 15th anniversary of Biggie‘s death and in lieu of that, Lil Kim graced 106 & Park as they discussed her mentor B.I.G., the influence he had, how she was portrayed in the Notorious movie and then Rocsi asks the inevitable question about Nicki Minaj.
With Nicki Minaj‘s second album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded on the way, the album cover has been leaked. Let’s just hope on April 3rd, the album is less bi-polar and more rap.
