Famous, big-assed rapper
Nicki Minaj (AKA Onika Tanya Maraj) is a singer and entertainer who was born on December 8, 1982, in Trinidad and Tobago. She and her mother moved to Queens, New York, where she was educated in the performing arts, attending La Guardia High School which is famous for being the setting of the musical Fame
. She worked odd jobs and was often fired for being mouthy and discourteous to customers, but she always knew in her heart that one day she would make it big. Nicki was the member of a few different rap groups before she uploaded her own solo recordings to her MySpace profile in an effort to be discovered. She was signed to Young Money Entertainment in 2007 and her career skyrocketed straight to the top of the charts. Nicki is known for her style which resembles something like an African-American time traveler. She makes waves at every award show that she attends, and her quick tongue spits verses faster than any other female recording artist in the game. She won Female Artist of the Year at the 2008 Underground Music Awards and Best Female Hip-Hop Artist at the 2013 BET Awards, in addition to topping the charts with Platinum-selling albums and appearances on Saturday Night Live. She was the first solo female rapper to ever perform at the Grammy Awards on February 12, 2012. Later that year, she confirmed that she was hired to be a judge on the 12th season of American Idol. The dynamic with fellow judge Mariah Carey was infamously icy and volatile. In April 2013, Nicki broke the record as most-charted female rapper on the Billboard Hot 100. Nicki has collaborated with recording artists like Britney Spears
in the remix of her track Till the World Ends
, as well as Rihanna
who admitted once or twice to cameras that she is extremely jealous of Nicki's large bootie. Even though she has made an attempt to tone down the sexiness of her clothing in recent years, there is no way to hide that figure. Nicki is always evolving and out to prove that she's got the biggest balls
in the room, so to speak.
