The two things that we all gravitate towards in a MC is her stylish and confident. It makes a girl, young woman, or any female fan feel that much more confident in their life while listening to a verbose MC knowing that she’s just as good, if not, better than her male counterpart.
When Nicki came on the scene I had a great feeling about the future of female Hip Hop. She energized it again and my passion for music emerged from whence it slept. Truth is, it had gotten boring with all the one hit wonders in the rap industry. Nicki was a part of Dirty Money, but then was signed by Lil Wayne, and became the queen of Y.M.C.M.B.
In 2009 she released her hit Mixtape Beam Me up Scotty, and on the track Itty Bitty Piggy she promised us wild costumes and fun lyrics.
But while her look became more pop and move geared towards a young audience, her music reflected it, and I became a little worried about the direction that she was going in. I am very happy for people who can do what they love; however, should they do what they love and ignore what the fans desire?
Nicki promised us more Hip Hop on the Re-Up and she came through.
Even the album cover to these additional songs to her Pink Friday debut reflected a darker and more serious Nicki.
