Nicki Minaj took off like a rocket these past few years. From rapping in a hallway to putting out mixtapes. From low budget videos seen on MTV to signing with the hottest rapper out and the biggest rap camp in the game right now. She won BET, MTV, Billboard, American Music, Soul Train awards, with pending Grammy nominations! Nicki Minaj has shown any and all of her haters she is here to stay. Whether or not you think she’s a “gimmick”, it works. Clearly, the songwriter, singer, rapper, actress is letting nothing stand in the way of her success.

Born December 8, 1982 Nicki turns 29 today. She and her family are originally from Trinidad, but they moved to Queens, New York when she was just a young girl. Her mother worked, while her father abandoned the family from drug use. A performance arts high school would be an outlet for cultivating and encouraging her talents. It wouldn’t be long before Lil Wayne recognized her video on Myspace and contact her to join his Young Money label.
