Nicki Minaj

Rapper/Singer Nicki Minaj (born Onika Tanya Maraj) has much more to offer than just a cute face, a sassy attitude, and a hot verse. With songs like "Your Love" and "Right Thru Me," Nicki has demonstrated an ability to craft songs that showcase her fierce rhyming skill in an honest and vulnerable way. Born in Trinidad, Nicki moved to Queens, New York with her family and made a buzz on underground mixtapes before signing to Lil Wayne's Young Money team in 2009. Her loud fashion sense, vocal versatility and animated performances make her as hip-hop as it gets. Nicki debuted at number 1 on the charts with her first LP, Pink Friday, in 2010 and followed with Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded in 2012. Nicki released her third studio album The Pinkprint in December 2014 and landed at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart. She is stamping her name on everything from fragrances and fashion to movies and acting (in the 2014 film The Other Woman). She was also a judge for the 12th season of American Idol
