On these last days of the month I would like to close it out by helping to contribute to the record sales of Nicki Minaj's album sales. Nicki works hard at marketing herself (check out her twitter timeline @NICKIMINAJ) and I implore all to go out and purchase a copy of her second album "Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded" for Nicki is making history and gaining success and becoming an influence in other areas aside from simply being an rap artist. Not only does she represent turning your fantasies into realty, but she has helped (almost singlehandedly) to bring Hip-Hop to the forefront of the entertainment industry again, which could be due to of course her sheer talent, her special guest features in a range of other high profile artist's songs in the beginning of her career, and her rise to fashion icon. In my fashion, she is a rapping-business-chameleon, representing the best example of how to sell oneself to the world, offering it something wildly original, bold, beautiful, and strong, yet classy the entire time representing having the restraint and reserve a women should have.

Nicki Minaj displays an other worldly classiness, like she has really came to us from another planet, but the stature she holds herself too is a fantastic mix of strong-classy-urban-high-fashion-schizo statement-maker. With her very unexpected antics and unorthodox, but intellectual reasons for doing the things she does, she has catapulted herself to one of the most highly influential females for this new digital generation. Nicki Minaj's status of respect is very high in the entertainment industry. From the beginning of her career her name has been associated with the highly successful, Lil' Wayne, and from there she went on to colaborate with other high profile artists such as Ludacris, Mariah Carey, Eminem, Kanye West, Jay-Z, Rick Ross, Britney Spears and most recently, the Queen of Pop herself, Madonna (see post Vogue Makes a Cameo at the Superbowl). Her ability to work with such big names I am sure are not just based on her association with Lil' Wayne, but mostly based off of her talent. It has been clearly evident that Nicki Minaj has impeccable lyrical prose, and her dramatic, charismatic, and unpredicatable behavior put the cherry on top of such a influential rapper. Just yesturday an article came out in the New York Times naming her the most influential female rapper of all time already since she came out in 2009 [source].
