Nicki Minaj Dubbed The “Queen Of Hip-Hop” In London, Talks Pressure Being A Female Rapper [Video]

 

Nicki Minaj is continuing her takeover in London and speaking on her rise to fame with her debut album Pink Friday.

The raptress who was dubbed the “Queen Of Hip-Hop” by Britain’s DJ Semtex, gave an interview to 1 Xtra’s Trevor Nelsen and discussed a number of topics including the pressure she feels being one of the few female rappers in the game.

She tells Nelsen,

“I’m a new artist and I’m already at the bottom of the totem pole because I’m a female rapper. We barely have our own categories at awards show….I’m at the bottom of the totem pole already and then I get to produce something knowing that people are just waiting to critique it….and they’re comparing me to….Kanye whose what? Four or five albums deep…the fact that they’re even comparing to me these people is a blessing.”


As previously reported, Minja’s Pink Friday has surpassed Kanye’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy in sales and went platinum this month with over 1 million units sold.
