I have been an avid Nicki Minaj fan for as long as I can remember. I would rap all of the words to some of her earliest works like "Itty Bitty Piggy," and "I Get Crazy." I even supported her when a lot of her day one fans fell off, due to her transition into more mainstream pop music. That being said, The Pinkprint may be her best album to date. She has perfectly combined her old school rap music, with her new school pop image, to create some of her deepest songs yet.
I love that Nicki is not playing any more games. She isn't wearing pink wigs and dancing around stages. She's going for a more mature look, rapping about things that matter to her, and still having fun with it. If you are, or have been, a Nicki Minaj fan, then you MUST go get your copy of The Pinkprint, in stores now.
