Last night, Young Money Lyricist Nicki Minaj was nominated for 4 BET Hip Hop Awards.
Nicki expressed her excitement towards her nomination: “I’m very excited about the 4 Bet Award nominations. Thank you Bet!”
She was nominated for Lyricist of the year (in the running Drake, Eminem, Jay Z, and Lil Wayne), Rookie of the Year (alongside Chiddy Bang, J. Cole, Waka Flacka Flame and Roscoe Dash), Hustler of the Year (Diddy, Drake, Jay Z, and T.I) and Made-You-Look award for best Hip Hop Style (alongside B.O.B, Jay Z, T.I., and Kanye West). Minaj expressed how these nominations were a blessing for her career. Last year, during the BET’s cipher segment of the show everyone knew from that point on that Nicki Minaj was about to change the game of hip hop for the men and women trying to hold it down for that top spot.
This entire year has been HUGE for this female MC; she has had the opportunity to collaborate with some heavy hitters in the game. Not to mention, gracing the covers of magazines and giving female rappers a better sound. Instead of the 1990s female MC image of being “just one of the guys” and wearing big shirts and baggy jeans; Nicki has embraced her natural curves and gives you “Barbie” at its best by keeping her sexy for the men and some of the ladies too!
Make sure you tune into BET for Hip Hop Awards 2010 which airs on Tuesday, October 12th 2010
