Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros:Those Punch Lines Are Her Trump Card, Variety, Clever
Cons:Not As Amazing As The Hype Predicted
The Bottom Line: --
Considering the unmeasureable hype Nicki Minaj presented like no other in the female rap scene, her debut album on a major label was calculated to be an anthem for street kids everywhere. Shocking to every Nicki Minaj or Young Money fan, Nicki Minaj's Pink Friday is surprisingly Pop, a clever mixture of Pop sensibility with street smarts. The Hip-Hop charts were ruled for at least an entire year with this album and its singles: the pumping "Moment 4 Life" featuring Drake, a heavy-worded diss track to Lil Kim called "Roman's Revenge" with Eminem, R&B-inspired tracks "Your Love" and "Right Thru Me." Let's not forget "Super Bass," the Hip-Pop track that made Nicki a radio favorite among Pop and Hip-Hop fans alike while the video+song itself went viral. Backlash predictably occured. Why was Nicki changing her style? Is underground rap not accepted in mainstream airwaves? Was this fued with "Queen B" Lil Kim a fluke?

We could go on all day questioning the merit of Nicki's music and persona but let's knock it down to just the music. The only successful female rapper today is actually pretty talented; she isn't a storyteller per'se but more of a punch-line rapper and it works incredibly for her. Eminem spits lines as effective as a ping-pong battle on the diss track "Roman's Revenge" while Will.I.Am creates a cheesy yet energetic Synth-Hop tune for Nicki to elaborate on with "Check It Out." Her singing isn't impressive but the album's centerpiece, "Save Me," is a decent ballad with a wondrous hook. With cameos from Hip-Hop juggernauts like Kanye West and Drake and Pop superstars like Rihanna and Natasha Bedingfield, Pink Friday is a satisfying effort from one of the most hyped artist of today's generation. Still, you can't help but wonder what Nicki's career would have been like if heavy Hip-Hop stunners such as "Roman's Revenge" and "Did It On 'Em" were the blueprint.
