Best Female Hip Hop Artist – Nicki Minaj

In the wake of her chart-topping sophomore album, Pink Friday: Roman Reladed, Nicki Minaj was a no-brainer for Best Female Hip Hop Artist. "This is the third year in a row, and I don’t take it for granted," Nicki said. "I really, really appreciate BET for keeping this category alive, and I appreciate all the female rappers doing their thing, past, present and future."
