Dear Nicki Minaj
"Monster" was hot. You laid down some of the fiercest female rap verses ever on that song and made plenty of other great contributions to My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
and several other rapper's tracks. When you make gutsy statements like you're gunning for Jay-Z's throne, H.O.V.A. himself... well, we need to see if you can back those comments up. In Allure Magazine
, youoffered up some pretty bold words that she had shared with Jay-Z.
"I had a little conversation with Jay-Z at the Victoria's Secret fashion show. He said,' Congratulations on all your success.' And I was like, 'Yeah, I'm coming for you. I'm coming for your spot, Mr.Mogul."
is the highest grossing female rap album since Missy Elliott, but it's a pretty massive departure from what makes you a great rapper as you spent more time with autotuned singing and Drake duets than the perpetual motion machine that makes your schizophrenic rapping so beloved. Even "Superbass" is another facet of your carefully maintained plastic personality and image. You can try to shoot for the throne (Kayne is the real heir), but we'll leave you with some parting words from the king himself.
"So stop with that childish shit, n***a I'm grown/ Please leave it alone - don't throw rocks at the throne/ Do not bark up that tree, that tree will fall on you/ I don't know why your advisors ain't forewarn you"
