Remember those really cute pics of Nicki Minaj that surfaced a few weeks ago showing the up and coming raptress shooting a video promo for this year’s MTV Video Music Awards? Well now the full clip has surfaced and you can all judge for yourselves whether the video lives up to all the hype created by the images. Nicki is set to give her first solo performance at this year’s ceremony when it airs live on September 12th and expectations are running high. The young diva is nominated for Best New Artist, even though she has never released an album and has only one solo hit to her credit. Despite these negatives, Minaj has appeared on several collaborative hits and is officially rap’s new “it” girl. Irv Gotti recently compared her to rap legend Lauryn Hill- and Nicki agreed, saying that once her “Pink Friday” album dropped the public would finally get the opportunity to experience the full range of her talents.
Nicki is also featured in this month’s issue of Paper Magazine- check the pics above and click here to read the article.
