Old news to most of you I'm sure, but I have almost no exposure to the charts... WOW! Like Missy crossed with Lady gaga (except good). Bit of a patois thing going on in parts too:

This one has that william twat and is an obvious cash in... but at 2:40 its sublime - and then they bring in the think!

I think her verse on Monster perfectly demonstrates how awesome she can be. All the big stars sleepwalk through the track then she comes in with about 10 different flows and just destroys it. Amazing.

Best female rapper since Shante. Undeniable fact. Was battering the hell out of her "Bring Me Up Scotty" mixtape last year.

the harajuku barbie mixtape has a lot of good bits. her verses definitely have a way of livening up an otherwise dead track (or showing up her host). looking forward to the album, though she's made comments about toning down the weirdness (after 'massive attack' bombed).

this one was in my head non-stop for weeks. (along with the cognitive dissonance of alan thicke (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alan_Thicke)'s son making strip club anthems.)

mad last pass for everyone w/ a crush on minajjjjjjjjjjj...

http://www.dissensus.com/showthread.php?9574-Hot-New-Skool-Babes&p=210051#post210051

i am sorta over her now that she is on one out of every 5 songs on Hot 97... and i think Timberlee does the black valley girl schtick better...

plus the whole "fake butt, fake tits" rumor is sorta a bummer...

nomad makes an interesting comment in the above "new skool babes" thread saying:

"lil kim: nicki minaj ------- madonna: lady gaga"

while on the subway two weeks ago i realized that the correct comparison is:

"lil kim: nicki minaj -------- bruce lee: jackie chan"

this is true, i swear...

So it seems pink friday follows the standard r&b album template of being 50% fire and 50% meh. The good bits are really, really good though.

Just listened to her album and it's shit. A couple good tracks but the majority is faceless, throwaway, paint-by-numbers radio pop. She seems very confused and maybe a little embarrassed. After all the work she's clearly put in fostering this left field eccentric style and image, it's bizarre that when it came to putting her album together she decided to virtually ignore it completely. Either someone sinister has been whispering in her ear and making her question herself or perhaps deep down she really just wants to be Rihanna. It's a shame because it makes her whole shtick being cynical and contrived a very real possibility.

I think Noz (Cocaine Blunts) summed it up well:
"Pink Friday is total let down. I wish Nicki would've made just one rap album before becoming Fergie"

You reckon? I suppose Lady Gaga doing that was a poor career move that didn't make her the biggest selling artist last year.

The Vibe interview last summer talked about the pressure on her to go more "normal" with the album, especially after Massive Attack tanked. It was also strangely candid/fatalistic about her entering media training in order to project a broadly appealing image (i.e. normatively sexy more than weird). The boardroom/focus group wins again.

As for LaGaGa - she was a good sonic fiction. The fatal misstep was when she decided to be a person too.

Minaj = Jackie Chan seems about right.

Have you got a link to that Vibe interview? I'd like to read that. What a load of bollocks. Lil Wayne clearly took interest in her for her weirdness when he signed her to Young Money since it is so close to his own style. And the last time I checked Lil Wayne's weirdness has not yet been a huge detriment to his career. What's the difference?

Oh right, she's a chick.

Re: Lady Gaga: you can explain her pretty easily; she just read a biography on Marilyn Manson and didn't finish it.

I dare say that Wayne actually brought out her weirdness further. Here's the cliff notes on Nicki: When she originally started, she rapped 'hard' and 'street' like one was supposed to do in the mid-00's in NYC. She was supposedly being looked at by G-Unit, and for the most part, her material from this era was... eh. Wayne sees her on a DVD doing stuff, and she hooks up with Wayne. Wayne was already beginning his 'mad genius of rap' hype, so the one who picked up on that aspect of Wayne was Nicki. Also, her manager for a minute was also Deborah Antley, Mother to Waka Flocka and then manager of Gucci Mane. Now if there isn't another argument for weirdness earning success, hey...

I think the problem with 'Massive Attack' was that it was just too strange, and it was trying this... almost Missy Elliot thing with her, so she wouldn't be perceived as desperately trying to be sexy like SO MANY OTHER female rappers. Which was a bad angle for someone like Nicki where weirdness is a characteristic, not a distraction.

The album is pretty 'eh'. But then again, she made it for teenage girls to buy, not for rap critics to approve. Besides, she's turned in so many glass-shattering verses over the course of this year alone, I can't REALLY be disappointed.
