Nicki Minaj played an important role in the culture, according to her.
“My role in hip-hop has been super unique because when my first album came out, there had been so much time where there wasn’t a female rap album out that went platinum,” stated Minaj, in an excerpt from a wide-ranging interview she completed with XXL to coincide with the media outlet’s big 20th anniversary celebration. “There wasn’t a big female rap presence right before I got in.
So, my role was reintroducing the female rapper to pop culture.” She continued with this train of thought by adding, “I don’t think we got that much credit. I think female rappers have always been dope and influential, but I think I sort of came in at a time where big business was paying attention, so I was able to capitalize off of a lot of deals and business ventures.”
Love her or hate her, the facts don’t lie: Nicki Minaj is one of the most successful female artist the music industry has ever seen.
