Nicki Minaj Makes Her Mark

If you weren't already convinced that Nicki Minaj is the "baddest Barbie in the game" right now, then there's a video a short scroll down that might make you think otherwise. But before we get to that, we're going on a "Minajourney", because yep, she's infiltrated Beastonia over the past year, and nope, we can't get enough.

The first thing you notice about Minaj, physically, is her distinct sense of style. The 5'2 Queens-born rapper and singer has a personality that shines through in her Mattel-esque attire, highlighted with an abundance of pinked-out girl gear. But it's beyond the "Minaj Mirage" of her being your little toy friend that makes her hit even harder.


Vocally, Minaj has found a niche in which she plays up her lighthearted and silly side by bending words and phrases, at times referencing "McDreamy", snot noses, ding-a-lings and yellow cabs, bringing a personal panache to her licks.


It's evident that she's on the right path too...with guests on tracks by Robin Thicke, Mariah Carey, Ludacris, Cassie and Usher, Nicki has the ability to outshine each of her higher-profile counterparts with a flurry of fast-paced spits and speaks. And to boot, she's found a fan in actress Michelle Trachtenberg. Watch the below video, as MT raps along to Minaj's verse on Thicke's Shakin' it For Daddy.

Nice work, Dawn Summers...or Georgina Sparks; whichever way you love your Trachtenberg, you're sure to dig her more now that she's upped her cred thanks to a trip the Holland Tunnel, accompanied by her best rendition of the sexy song.


Only thing we request from Minaj for the remainder of the year? "More, more more..." Nicki's debut album, Barbie World, is scheduled for a late 2010 release.
