Many times before, there have been a lot of discussions about Nicki Minaj and her sexual image. There are often questions about her being taken seriously as a rapper. She is viewed by many as a sexier, non-lyrical, version of Lil’ Kim. Despite most of her fan base coming from her looks and only her looks, Nicki Minaj is confident that once her album comes out that she will become known as a force in the rap game.
Even though she wears revealing outfits and her rhymes are suggestive, Nicki Minaj is trying to change her image. She wants to be looked at as more than just a sex symbol. Of course, Minaj wants to look sexy, but she also wants to be respected. That is why she usually wears those revealing outfits and makes silly faces. Nicki Minaj calls this her counteraction for wearing the type of clothes that she does.
When speaking of her rapping ability, Nicki Minaj said that there is not another rapper out there that has a pen game as strong as hers. No matter what, Nicki says that she will always be in control when it comes to her music. That is one of the reasons that she signed with Young Money and they do not try to make all of their artists fit into one category. Here, Nicki Minaj is taken seriously.
Nicki Minaj hopes to release her debut album before the end of the year, but it is more likely that she releases her album sometime next year.
