Nicki Minaj Nominated For 5 BET Awards…Diddy Declares Her One Of The "Great Ones" [Video]

 

Diddy recently spoke to MTV about Nicki Minaj and working in the studio with The Queen of Young Money.

“She’s definitely one of the great ones.  She has a long way to go but you know we recognized LeBron was a great one, Tiger was a great one and Kobe was a great one.  Her story has just begun.”

While she still hasn’t dropped her debut album yet, Nicki Minaj has also racked up a few BET Award nominations.  The current reigning female MC in Hip-Hop picked up nods for Best New Artist and Best Female Hip-Hop Artist in addition to three nominations with Young Money.

The 10th annual BET Awards will be held on June 27th at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles and will be hosted by Queen Latifah.

    SHE’S THE #1 REIGNING MC,WTF,THAT’S UNACCURATE, SHE CAN’T FREE STYLE, HER S H I T IS WRITEN FOR HER.
    I’VE HEARD LOTS OF PEOPLE SAYING B.E.T HAS GONE TO THE DOGS BUT NOW I KNOW IT’S TRUE FOR SURE, B.E.T USE TO BE ABOUT BLACK DIGNITY, NOW I DON’T KNOW WHAT’S GOING ON WIT THEM. THERE ARE SO MANY POSTIVE BLACK FEMALES THEY COULD OF HONORED, INSTEAD OF ONE WHO PROTRAYS A NEGATIVE IMAGE.

    • dude

      Its easy to be the top female M.C. when theres no competition. Comparing her to Lebron, Tiger and Kobe. Wow. Is it me or has Puffy and everyone else lost their mind. She is decent but probably will never be in the top ten of all time female rappers. I just dont get the hype about this chick. She looks good but her rapping skills are average and very simple at best. Her success in the rap game says more about the lack of talent in the female segment. She’s fooling everybody.

  • Ronnie Freeman

    SHE SHOULD BATTLE JEAN GRAE IF SHE IS THE BEST

  • Tessa

    He is just a confused individual. We should keep him in our prayers. If people continue to glorify these slum bucket artist then hip hop is going to die an awful death.

  • juliemango

    The femaleDrake does have a long way 2 go nursery rhymes are always in demand so long as there r babies to entertain???

  • blkqueen39

    I miss the days of mc lyte, queen latifah…etc

  • detdoll313

    She’s no where near as great as Diddy is making her to be. She’s ok at best. Trina doesn’t seem to be getting as much attention as she once did. All the other females haven’t gotten much attention either. I like Rasheeda and Kim is even cool. I have no idea who Ester Dean is. I think is Eve was on the scene it would be different. Nicki is just the new kid on the block the industry is promoting now. She’ll fly by soon enough

  • Kyann

    I love Nicki M.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • ThaTruth

    Floyd mayweather should be a sportsman Nominee. Tiger woods should be taken off the list. Tiger is having a bad year he shouldn’t be rewarded until he gets back to the old Tiger Woods. And plus he doesn’t claim his black side anyway.

  • GreeneyedBandit

    WELL THATS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN OTHER FEMALE RAPPERS(u know who u are)TAKE LONG BREAKS! I got a feelin nicki minaj gone be around for a while,So i aint gone hate on her!!!

  • Ladykluv

    Nikki is cool, but LiL KiM is the Queen. Let’s not forget everything Nikki is doing everything Kim has already done. And I get a little irritated when new up and coming artists don’t pay homage to those that opened the doors for them in the first place. I know the real hip-hop fans remember all the critisiam Kim went through when she started from parents,pastors,and all the way up to politicians. She stayed Kim, and that’s why these b*#$:&! are able to do this. RESPECT THE QUEEN!!!

  • WTF

    Also Diddy’s only bread winners have been Faith Evans and BIG…. without them he’d probably be nothin.

  • thrasher

    Yeah, for best female rapper…she should get dat one. Whole lotta negative vibes bein spit on her…But in da streets, da chicks f*kks wit her. I talk to youngins and listen to what dey playin on dere Ipods and listen to what dey bumpin in cars… Fo now, she got it…no way ’round it.
