Nicki Minaj ‘Time’ Cover

nicki-time

Impressive

Nicki Minaj becomes first female rapper on the cover of TIME magazine’s annual  Most Influential issue. Lauryn Hill was the first back in 1999. Nick’s feature was written by mentor Lil Wayne and is available to read here.

You know, in New York they used to have these street DVDs. It just so happened that I appeared in one, and when I looked at the finished product, Nicki Minaj was on a part of the DVD. I was like, “Woooooow!” She was just being Nicki without the glitz and glamour. When I heard the first two and four bars, it wasn’t even about her rapping better than any female rapper. It was about, man, she’s rapping better than other rappers—period.

I always wanted more for my artists and saw Nicki’s potential from the first moment I laid eyes on her. She’s reached far beyond everything I would have imagined. Man, she’s so influential and doing all the right things. She’s an icon, a boss and a role model to all these young girls out here on how to do it the right way. Her work ethic speaks volumes and has yielded these results. The scary thing is she’s still going. Ha! Nicki Minaj will go down as one of the best to do it in the history of music.

    • yo

    • yo

      Lol no she doesn’t

      • VAMP SODA

        who bailed her brother out? her momma dont got that bread and if she did it came from nick

        • yo

          You don’t know that nigga

          • VAMP SODA

            it was her money

  • Kris Kompute

    It’s amazing her brand is that strong without a classic album or signature track. Tits and ass always wins out.

    • VAMP SODA

      it truly is amazing what ass injections, plastic surgery and some wigs can do for some

    • Popintl8

      You gotta give credit where it’s due. How many other chicks with fake ass and tits are winning on her level?

      • Kris Kompute

        Checkmate.

      • yo

        How do you know body fake?

        • Popintl8

          I’ve been following Nicki since before the rest of the world knew her and anybody else that has or knows how to Google also knows. And It’s not a diss it’s just the truth, I still love Nicki.

          • yo

            I wasn’t trying to be petty I was honestly asking. But aren’t there other ways women can get strapped like that naturally? I honestly don’t think she got work done or at least not as much as people think.

          • Popintl8

            Yes there are other ways but there’s no way for your ass to grow to the size Nicki has on its own without the rest of her body gaining weight as well without Enhancements. Outside of the ass and Tits I don’t see any other differences.

          • Kris Kompute

            She hasn’t had work done? Are you blind?You definitely fuck TRANNYS.

          • yo

            Stop projecting your attraction to transsexuals onto other people. It’s ok if that’s what you’re into don’t be like that my nigga.

    • yo

      Did it on em was fire so was Romans revenge what’s up with yah lame niggas not giving women credit. Shit is confusing.

      • Kris Kompute

        Those aren’t classic tracks. At all.

        And Lauryn gets brought up in every legendary album conversation so save the tears Susan B.

        • yo

          Not classic TO YOU.

          • Kris Kompute

            Or anyone with ears.

          • yo

            Evidently not if she sold three mill my nigga.

          • Kris Kompute

            Vanilla Ice sold seven mill. Hammer went diamond. Pick a new argument for your bullshit opinion

          • yo

            You’re an idiot. You literally just proceed MY POINT.

          • Kris Kompute

            You brought up sales like that validates it being a classic. I gave you two artists who outsold her and neither are considered classic or legendary in any way, shape or form. Yet, I’m the idiot.

            K.

          • yo

            So ice ice baby and hammer time aren’t classics? Shut the fuck up you stupid bitch.

          • yo

            There are artists that are outselling Jay z but does that take arty from his accomplishments? No. But because nicki is a woman lame niggas like YOU discredit her even though she’s out rapped Jay z kanye and even went bar for bar with Eminem on HER debut album. Fuck outta here.

          • Kris Kompute

            Jay, Kanye, Em vs Vanilla Ice/Hammer? Now you bringing up her verse on “Monster”. PICK A FUCKIN ARGUMENT.

            Like I originally stated, the bitch has no classic albums or songs. Doesn’t mean she can’t rap, she just ain’t got no classics.

            You arguing about her body being real. Any nigga who has had any pussy ever can see her shit is at least 40% silicone. You just ain’t trying to fuck up your nightly whack off seasons. Groupie ass Barbie bitch.

            Just STFU. YOU LOSE.

          • yo

            Lol you trying so hard.

          • yo

            You said that she’s not classic to you or anyone with ears then turned right around and called off two artists with classic billboard hits. Like I said before if she’s selling then people like her whether it’s just for now or not.

      • The Gary Group

        Kill yourself immediately. Name a bar on any of those songs that was fire

        • yo

          You’re only dissing her cuz she a female which is mad weak

          • The Gary Group

            Still can’t name a bar which is OK cause I know she’s trash. Has nothing to do with gender. I think Tink is nice, Siya, a lot of em are nice. Nicki is just gimmicky and says the same remedial bars over and over. “All these bitches is my sons” face ass

          • yo

            That’s her thing. You not dissing Jay for constantly screaming hov are u? I don’t need to name bars because u know her music and I know u know it.

          • The Gary Group

            Aight bruh

          • Kris Kompute

            Buddy is a clown. This nigga said ice ice baby and can’t touch this are hip-hop classics. Lmao.

            I’m done with these c-section niggas.

          • yo

            Just because YOU don’t like it don’t mean it ain’t classic. You stated the sales yourself so shut up.

      • JustCoastWitHa

        They not about to sit here and act like every feature/song dropped in 2013 wasn’t fire. How many Chiraq covers were there?? My bitch has done so much in the 6 years that she’s been out.

        • yo

          Lol they trying tho. You know the average nigga (especially on this site) is a fucking idiot. In six years she’s worth 70 million dollars before her debut album dropped she was paid 50k a verse! Three platinum albums two sold out world tours but all these niggas can do is boil her down to tits and ass. It’s disgusting how remedial their logic is. If you don’t like her then fine but don’t refuse the numbers my guy. This bitch is killing the game right now and she raps better than more than half the industry.

          • JustCoastWitHa

            FAACCTTSSS !! Don’t refuse the numbers and DONT EVER be blind to the work she’s put in. Niggas on here are beyond delusional

        • yo

          Her chiraq verse was hard af. All then remixes was trash lol

    • marty mcfly

      We aint her fan base so we wouldn’t know if she had a classic or a signature track anyway cause none of us likely listen to her or check for what she’s doing but her own fans feel differently.

      • yo

        That’s a logical positive way to put it.

      • JustCoastWitHa

        Glad this was said.

  • el jim chapo guzman

    I’m glad she’s about to dump gay ass meek… She finally realized that meek ain’t for her.

    • THE WORLD FAMOUS DOPEMAN!!

      LIKE YOU HAVE ANY CHANCE?! FOH!!

      FUCK YOUR OPINION!!

      • el jim chapo guzman

        She’s a hood bitch’ we all got a chance

        • yo

          Lol I doubt any of you niggas on reap radar got a chance. she’s literally worth 70 million dollars meanwhile you’re one of many fuck niggas on a blog talking shit about “chances” fuck outta here

          • el jim chapo guzman

            If meek did it then we can do it.

          • yo

    #NICKIMIRAJ

    DON’T HATE ON MY OPINION!!!!

  • Strong Enough

    this is nuts. when was her last hit record? her last album flopped. lmao

    • yo

      Her last album sold three million. Yah niggas is stupid on rap radar. Anaconda went platinum and so did feeling myself.

      • hute shoot

        Her last album sold 600k in the US, and stalled at 900k worldwide. Try again. Her album went fake “platinum” with streams.

        • yo

          It’s not fake platinum if MILLIONS of people were streaming her music. Yall rap radar niggas are retarded I’m convinced. I don’t see how yall don’t comprehend anything past your own close minded ass opinions. It’s exhausting. The rap radar execs must be laughing at the type of shit yall say it’s unbelievably stupid on a regular basis I hate all of you

    • JustCoastWitHa

      u sound stupid. even if her last album “flopped” (WHICH IT DIDN’T) what would that have to do with being influential?

      • Strong Enough

        your bitch? she dont care about you. you dont even know her bwawawa

        • JustCoastWitHa

          I mean.. I can say the same thing to you about your Mom, but that would be off topic wouldn’t it? So Troll.. back to my initial question. What does her last album “flopping” (as you say) have to do with her being influential ?

          • Strong Enough

            No you can’t because you know me like you know Nicki. Jack shit lol

            Listen we can agree to disagree. You can like Nikki and think whatever. I could care less.

          • JustCoastWitHa

            Goood Giiirl. *pets your head*

          • Strong Enough

            ewww. you’re the type to up vote their own comments? who does that?

          • JustCoastWitHa

            anddd you’re the type to view the”up votes” . is this really a conversation? lol

          • Strong Enough

            Yeah. I wanted o see who agreed with you. And I was….you. Lol

            But whatever. Found it funny

          • JustCoastWitHa

            You wanted to see who agreed with me? Because you know these ppl on here personally..and their opinions matter right? lmao How contradictory

          • Strong Enough

            i never said they mattered tho. you love to make shit up dont you. lol

          • JustCoastWitHa

            Na, I was being sarcastic. that was the point of the quotation marks

          • Strong Enough

            oh. sorry my sarcastic machine wasnt going off

  • thedeamkid19
