Nicki Minaj Reloads
by Rhapsody | April 3, 2012
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.
