First Female Rap Artist to Go Platinum in Eight Years

Pink Friday remained at the top of the charts for several months after its release, and in January 2011, the project was officially certified platinum. Nicki became the first female rap artist to reach this milestone in eight years, when her rap rival Lil Kim's La Bella Mafia LP went platinum in 2003.
