Why is Nicki Minaj Famous

Nicki Minaj is famous for her music career. While she had a hit while signed with Fendi, it wasn’t until L’il Wayne’s record group signed her on that her career took off.

When Jay-Z stepped in and recommended a collaboration, it added fuel to her music career. Her album Pink Friday was the next step in the journey.

Nicki Minaj Brief History

Onika Tanya Maraj-Petty goes by the stage name of Nicki Minaj. She hails from Trinidad and Tobago. Nicki was first noted for her colorful ensembles, including candy-colored wigs and vibrant fashionwear.

With an armful of awards, she decided to retire in 2019, but it was short-lived, and she returned full-force in 2020.

This personality-filled entertainer has nabbed awards from the Grammy’s to Billboard’s Music Charts to BET and MTV. She’s been listed as one of the most influential female rappers of our time.

Never one to shy away from publicity, feuds, and controversies follow her around, but rarely affect sales as she is a top earner in the music industry.

Whether it was performing with 6ix9ine or getting into a beef with Mariah Carey, L’il Kim, or Remy Ma, she openly feuds and is often splashed over the internet and magazines with talk of the next incident.

Does the controversy overshadow her music, or is it a clever way to stay in front of the media? Either way, whatever she’s doing, people are paying attention and voting with their money. She’s winning all the way to the bank.

Don’t count out Nicki Minaj, you’d be sadly mistaken. This woman is on fire, and with her latest hit Yikes, you’ll be seeing more of her now that this feisty rapper is back out of retirement.
