Nicki Minaj Reloads

Welcome to Rhapsody
Play any song, anytime, anywhere.

With apologies to Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Rihanna and the rest, Nicki Minaj is undoubtedly the most fascinating pop star going in 2012, thanks to a split-personality range that runs from "precocious dancefloor queen" to "vicious, unconquerable emcee." She flaunts that dichotomy throughout her engrossing sophomore full-length, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, which we're celebrating here with an extended review, an epic chat between Rhapsody Pop Editor Rachel Devitt and Hip-Hop Editor Mosi Reeves, a Cheat Sheet rundown of other classic "femcees," and much more. Have at it.
