’12 Disappointing Albums: #1 Nicki Minaj Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded

nicki-minaj-debuts-vibrant-pink-friday-roman-reloaded-cover-art

The best selling rap album of the year. The most controversial rap album of the year. And the most disappointing! Oh Nicki you can rhyme but the direction you’re taking your career is disturbing. Who cosigned this Roman character shit in the first place? The intro here is dreadful. And did you really have to put your dick in our face on the clumsy “Come On A Cone”? Besides the terrific “Beez In The Trap” (Thank you, 2 Chainz) you failed to satisfy us on the hip-hop side of your second disc. You seem way more comfortable on crossover tunes like the much-maligned “Starships”, the EDM-packed “Pound The Alarm” and the stuck in the worst club in Las Vegas sounding “Va Va Voom”. Men lie, women lie, and numbers don’t so I guess we should all kiss her gold and platinum plaques. Yes it’s true Ms. Minaj missed the sophomore jinx. That don’t mean this album doesn’t stink. Yuck, ma.

    *Pusha T voice* I see you rappers repackaging albums and trying to sell it. *still Pusha T voice* Nobody buying that bullshhhhh.

  • JustMyOpinion

    ^ Sorry I had to.

    The first album was way over hyped, she got a verse from Eminem and the *cough* entire industry went crazy. Good pick.

  • LuxuryRap

    COMPLETELY AGREE!!!!

  • BBGUN

    100% Agree

  • Aggie Pride

    I Applaud rapradar great job with number one.

  • Aggie Pride

  • M.T

    wasnt really expecting much after “starships”. still bump some songs from her first album tho.

  • TRUTH

    ONLY REASON SHE DIDN’T IS LITTLE BLACK GIRLS CASHING THEY MC DONALDS HEAD CASHIER CHECK ON THIS PIECE OF BULLSHIT

  • Itsfarfromover1

    Hip-Hop is so one track minded. Putting MCs in a box. She gave you hip hop with champions and I am your leader and basically the first half but also reached for new fans to become more than just a rapper in a box. Respect her growth and creativity

    smh how is cruel summer and onifc not on this list? those were the most disappointing albums ive heard. ever

  • The Doctor

  • JAGUAR

    That track “Whip It” is fire tho…

  • White Noise

    If Nicki had released the second half of the album as a dance-pop record, she would have been much better off. “Whip It” and “Automatic” are tight.

  • thecool

    All those songs she did for the reup should have been on the first editon

    Disappointment means something that doesn’t live up to expectation, right? Who the fuck expected this to be on some next level Hip Hop shit in the first place?

  • flawda

    This album was made for people who shop at Forever 21 and men who wear skinny jeans

  • Andrew

    If she had done 2 discs out the gate, and put more effort into making some quality music this would have been miles ahead of where it is. She gave mediocre at best verses on I Am Your Leader and Champion, and that’s 2 mediocre verses plus how many awful ones? She chased money at the expense of the art, and she sold copies but she sold out and let the money make her instead of making the money.

  • Dee

    I thought it was disappointing also 100%

  • Yeezus Christ

    Champion is good

  • R

    The Fem Emcee thats sounds like shes taking a mean shit on her songs never understood that must be an anal lover thang!

  • Da Business

    Outside of KRIT(which was a letdown), those other albums wasn’t even on my radar.

    Shit, I’ve gotta throw the Big Boi lp in there as well. What a letdown(ova all) and Big Boi is my n!99@.

  • SIMS

    2010 Nicki minaj> 2012 Nicki minaj.

    her first album is by far a classic compared to the shit that followed drake is the only one who improved. Wayne fell off after 2008. now he follows his artists lead

  • STINKMEANER

    just let her take her career into pop, that is where she wants to be, then we don’t want her. hip hop isn’t some second class art form. if you don’t want respect for your lyrics, then feel free to get out.

    and lets be real, this chick has 1 good verse on the track Monster, and that was when she was in a studio with 20 other rappers, you think that is a coincidence that her best verse just happened to be recorded when she was hangin with a bunch of way more talented rappers.

    yeah, they didn’t write it all for her, but they sure as hell polished her turd.

  • Stan

    Finally someone who doesn’t kiss her ass

  • Becky’s friend

    B.o.B should have made this list instead of DMX cause who was really expecting anything good to come from him

  • Scoop208

    IF THIS WAS THE MOST DISAPPOINTING ALBUM TO ALL YALL THEN THIS MEANS YALL WERE CHECKING FOR IT LMAOOOO
