Eleven weeks after the release of Nicki Minaj’s Pink Friday, the album lands at the top spot on the Billboard charts. This makes her the first female rapper to do so since Eve’s 1999 debut, Let There Be Eve…Ruff Ryders’ First Lady.

    WHY YOU MAD, LIL KIM?

  • Word

    Shes lucky nobody puts out albums in January or Febuary. Aint been no big releases, and Moment 4 Life is on constant rotation on radios so im sure thats what pushed it. Good shti though Nicki, you got these hoes thinking its okay to be weird and dye they hair pink but cant deny your success though. I aint mad at ya.

  • Westwood

    I GUESS LIL KIM’S CRACK FRIDAY DIDNT EVEN PUT A DENT IN NIKKI’S HUSTLE.. WHICH MAKES KIM THE BIGGEST FAIL OF 2010 AND 2011.. HOW A OG LOSE A RAP BATTLE WITH A ROOKIE? SHOUT OUT TO NIKKI YO

  • Itz Yourz

    Gottttt Dammmmmmnnnnn….do yall see that hustle! Albums usually fall from its peak in the billboard. Some remain at its peak for months but anit know way an album that came out last year be number 1 right now. Could be there is no competition?, but kanye album drop the same time and eminem is billboard king when he come out and taylor swift is guarantee number 1. Whats nicki doing there? In febuary 2011? At One? Ya gotta give that broad credit…touring, tv show appearances, endorsements and kid stans= Hustle hard. Lets see what she do with it.

    I got to wife that gurl….so I can take half that shit..lol

  • King

  • Word

    @Itz Yourz

    What? Shes the FIRST to do it SINCE Eve did it. Meaning, no one has done it since Eve.If @Big Homie were to say she were the SECOND to do it since Eve did it, that would mean someone else did it AFTER Eve and BEFORE Nicki. But on one has done it SINCE Eve, thats why she the FIRST to do it SINCE Eve. Get it? He not saying she the FIRST to do it period. Hope that helped you out

  • Damn Homie

    This just proves what we all know.. atleast 50% of America is brain dead. I can already feel the buzz dying down.. soon as the “gays” have a new thing come along.. like a Gaga album or Adam Lambert.. then they will forget about Nikki.

    Second album numbers won’t even come close to this.. save yo money ma!

  • Itz Yourz

    @ Word

    “If Big Homie were to say she were the SECOND to do it since Eve did it, that would mean someone else did it AFTER Eve and BEFORE Nicki”.

    ^^^^^???If she was the Second to do it, and eve was first to do it that means someone did it b4 nicki and after Eve. But nicki was the second to do it??????
    Uh yeah..Thanks for “clearing that up” for me…mannn….. I was neva good with math. Did not know there was a number between 1 and 2….first and second. Ahh?? 1.5, runner up?”I think”

    I can do the abottt and costello “who’s on first” skit all day with you but, I rather not. So whatever you say bro…its Law.

  • Donn

    How many albums Eminem put out? How many years he been rappin? Exactly. And @King .. SCREAMS FROM THE HATERS GOT A NICE RING TO IT! :)

  • #chief

    @Itz Yourz
    i take it your not too bright are you?

  • odC

    #1 by default is not impressive, only a 6% increase. NO big release this week so she kept last week sales consistent thus #1. smh. Lame when #1 is an honor without greatness, i.e. moving great increasing numbers.
    Heck outta here.

  • http://baltimoregoodstuff.blogspot.com dray

    Is the guy behind nicki yawning, scaring nicki, yelling at nicki, or about to punch nicki in th back of the head???

  • Hip Hop Head

    Congrats on her success but it’s sad that alotta people determine wuts hot based on sales. Who the fuck is gonna buy the album if EVERYBODY is waitin on sales to tell them if it’s hot.

    #HipHopWontEverDie #EVER

  • Donn

    @Hip Hop Head

    No one, her debut sales were high before ppl knew the album was hot and obviously ppl gave it good reviews and that’s why more ppl bought it after it’s first wk. Look, i get that everybody on here mostly is against mainstream Hip Hop music and that’s fine but u complain about it and don’t do nuthen about it. Buy some records. Run to iTunes and the comment sections to support your artist, write up petitions to get ur artist on the radio, call the radio stations and request records. You can’t change shit but sitting typing your fustration. U don’t like it, then change it

    GONE

    @Cold Blood ur 100% right she sucks balls so overated like the whole young money crew

  • Lyrykal

    @Donn cosign, like cole put it ” ol bitter ass sit around in middle class homes wit computers on hating on da newest songs” whiles y’all r hating she selling records n shittin on y’all . Congrats 2 her

  • Cheechu

    *vomits* what the fuck is wrong with people???? shes the worst rapper to come out in years and just bc she has co signs from a few hot artists and producers shes good??? well this news just ruined my day..dumb talentless broad

  • Hip Hop Head

    @Donn
    I agree wit you 1,000% I was refering to those artists that make mainstream music but don’t have the budget that Nicki or Drake have. If you have the right records & the right people around you all you need is the that budget to be big enuff to make you seem epic.

    If ARTIST X’s album comes out on EMI & it only does 8k the 1st week cats are gonna look at he/she like she failed & wont buy it even if the shit’s hot. I seen alotta FOLLOWERS go to buy the bootleg but not buy the official album from the stores because it didn’t sell well BUT when Kanye dropped they seen the 1st week #’s & went out to cop it to not seem “out of the loop” or “not up on whats hot”. The shit is sad.

    #HipHopWontEverDie #EVER

  • Shaddyyy

    this is a sad day Nicki is #1 on R&B & hip Hop Charts and Drake is featured in 4 of 10 songs on the hot 100?? wtf is happening garbage music rules the airwaves, at least Eminem is at #3 still and Talib Kweli debuts at #5. billboard just goes by what the tremdy music get played on the radio, why i never listen to it

  • Hip Hop Head

    P.S. I fux w/ Nicki this aint about her it’s about music “fan’s” obsession with 1st weeks sales and #’s period. #’s dont determine good/bad music.

    #HipHopWontEverDie #EVER

  • Itz Yourz

    @ Chief

    What’s bright? oh I know what you talking about.

    Yep!…not bright at all….Hell I dont know what bright is unless the sun is out.

  • Donn

    @Hip Hop Head
    I agree, sales don’t equal quality cus there’s alot of pop artist and rock artist that i love that don’t sell like i want them too, its not just Hip Hop that’s like that. Ppl just need to support their artist instead of complaining. Call the radio, join the street teams, sign petitions, get off ur ass and do something if u don’t like it

  • Queen

    Her album is NOT good. I can’t believe this will be the legacy of women in hip hop.. I want to to bury myself Alive.. She should b jumping on every hot alive.. Where is her passion??!

    She’s the FIRST to do it SINCE Eve did it. How hard is that for you to understand? She’s the second to do it overall maybe, but the FIRST since Eve. If you don’t understand that your whole perspective is wack.

    @ Word

    Actually I graduated with Honors. And paid the loans off while attending college.

    I guess you can say Im dumb as a fox. You catch that one?

    Lol…Its not hard for me to understand at all. She the first in the category//box/lane,chart of the bar Eve orginally has set, I get it nigga. Just saying its other ways to say it. But somehow you felt it was your duty to break it down for me the specific way the next nigga is saying something…. and still continue too(by the way chief that is how you use that “too” in a sentence). LMAO so I figure I run with the “non-understanding the conception of the interpretation”.

    Yo for future ref. dont even pay attn to my dumb as comments, dry sarcasm( especially if you actually believe in my reply to chief) thoughts, opinion, outburst… etc. Just scroll right ova whenever you see my name…smh

    And bigg up to the bloggers who are actually replying to WHAT big homie put up. Wish @word and @chief would wear the same lipstick though…I dont like rainbows on my dick.

  • miami428

    Yes thats my girl. Fuck lil kim, that wack bitch is not even on Nicki’s radar and this proves it ha ha.We love you Nicki.

  • Anonymous

    @Dray, that’s her fiance Safaree aka SB. Fuck Nicki and her wack ass album. Fuck her man Safaree too, that bitch nigger is always talking shit on his twitter page. I can’t wait for somebody to punch his fake ass wannabe in the face. Her fucking album is straight garbage, straight pop bubble gum shit. Who the fuck is buying her album? Only the little 13 year old girls and gay boys. Her next album won’t even be hot at all. Hope she is saving her money. Anyway Baby brought 200,000 when that wack shit came out the first week. She’s only #1 for a week and that’s it. Fuck that wack gimmick no skill bitch.

    @Its Yourz

    If you can’t rap your opinion doesn’t matter, its music, listen to it or don’t. These artists have no obligation to reflect the streets, reflect reality or be who you expect them to be. Music is an art and anyway you cut it art is subjective so everyone has an opinion. Nicki Minaj makes music thats escapist and contrived in her fantasy world, her artist persona is like a girl who wants to be a princess. 50 Cent has a persona of a player/gangsta so does Gucci Mane but its not real, don’t be fooled into thinking gangs, organized crime and hustling is cool. Its not cool, its just a living for some. The MSM thinks of rap as a propaganda mechanism to glorify crime not because people like to listen to the glorification of crime but because they don’t respect rap as art. When we look at rap for truth we neglect rap’s capacity as an art. My own parents don’t consider Rap to be music because Rap is used like a mirror, like a tool. Why would we stifle Hip-Hop the only art, the only positive thing that collectively came out of the Ghettos of the Bronx with our naive expectations? I say let Rap run its course and if that means it merges with pop music, so be it. We’ll always have Rap at its purest in our memories, nothing can take that from us.

    Also: Art has nothing to do with money or record sales.

    Damn, she looks good in that picture. She’s hot.
