The hip hop music genre continues to become more male dominant with the quantity of female mc’s decreasing. Not many mainstream female rappers are in the limelight; there’s Lil’ Kim, Trina, Missy, Eve, and others. There there’s Nicki Minaj, this week’s Chick of The Week. Young Money rapper/singer Nicki Minaj gets this week’s spot being the sexiest female artist out at the moment, possessing a sexual image similar to Lil’ Kim and Foxy back in the 90’s. Nicki Minaj hailing from Jamaica, New York and recently dropped her mixtape Beam Me Up Scotty. She’s currently unsigned but is generating a buzz based off her Wayne affiliation and sex appeal.

Unfortunately Nicki Minaj plans on cleaning up the overly freaky image she projects. She sat down with, and had this to say about reinventing her image:

“Nicki Minaj is not going to be about sex appeal. I’m always gonna be sexy, I’m a bad bitch.”
“It’s okay to be sexy but you have to also balance that with your music that’s what I learned and that’s what I’m doing. I’m not the next anybody, I’m the new Nicki Minaj,”

She says that but at the same time she looks a little like Lauren London and sounds a lot like Foxxy Brown and Lil’ Kim. Everyone’s always claiming to be original but you can always find out who they’re sampling from. There’s no such thing as “original” in this world full of influences. And I guess that’s not always a bad thing.
