I’ll admit it; I had my doubts. I mean, the “the scary Nicki” threw me off a bit with that whole "Starships" thing during the Pink Friday era. Her tactics and music creation made her millions of dollars, mainly from the addition of new white female fans; but I've questioned how she would be a significant contributor to true blue hip-hop. Plus, you know... there's the fake boobs and the fake ass. There was the pink hair and the weird outfits. I mean, geez!
So, with all of the reinventions, and junque, weirdness and overall atypical demeanor for a superstar rap artist, I suppose the realness that is Nicki Minaj was... overseen? And what is this realness anyway? Well, it's the Nicki that has men (especially rappers) going crazy because, well... she chose one guy over a heap of others. Hmm.
Okay. So there’s her relationship with Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill. Many thought that it wouldn't last this far. Surpassing Meek’s court appearances and house arrest she committed herself to a love affair that many once believed to be as made-up as Jay-Z and Beyoncé. Yes… Jay-Z and Beyoncé.
Popular rapper Drake challenged Meek a few times in an old school rap battle. Most recently, the rapper The Game challenged Meek as well; and then called out by Philadelphia's own Beanie Sigel (for I suppose more personal reasons). One can only conclude that this whole beef has very little to do with Meek, but more to do with his spotlight. However, that spotlight was not present until the presence of one, Nicki Minaj. SooO, all of this has everything to do with his ability to snatch up the incomparable Nicki Minaj??
But why Nicki?
But why Nicki?
Apparently, she’s everything that most women are not. She’s rich. She’s an artist. She’s attractive. Nicki knows the streets. She’s also newly cultured. One can assume that Nicki Minaj is perhaps the best of the most of men’s dreams. And now she has men (who claim to have it all) to truly feel that there is something in their life that they're truly lacking; and that missing variable is either her presence, the spotlight, or both.
So what's the outcome? Well, I suggest that you remain on yellow alert, Meek, because these conflicts are not going to end anytime soon. You see, apparently, you have something that's very much desired..
