When you’ve been given the ultimate seal of approval from superstar, Beyonce, you know you’ve arrived. After being featured on Bey’s “Flawless” remix, Nicki Minaj, was given a diamond “Flawless” necklace by the Queen Bee herself.
While both in attendance at this year’s MTV VMAs, Nicki shared the news with fans when she unveiled a photo of the beautiful necklace. The photo was captioned with this message, “If Beyonce didn’t walk into your dressing room and give you a diamond “FLAWLESS” necklace, then there’s no way you could be having a better week than me. Lol. Awwwww thank u QUEEN. ur just a precious gem. I could never thank you enough for your influence on powerful women all around the world. #WeFlawless.”
What more can a girl ask for, right?
On Wednesday Nicki Minaj released the official video for new single “Anaconda.” Although the title is straight-forward enough, I was perplex by the soft porn we were presented with.
Let me be clear, I do not see anything wrong with a woman being completely comfortable in her body and/or showing it off.
If you’ve been tuning in to all things Lil’ Kim these days, then you know, she’s dissing nemesis Nicki Minaj again! This time, the Queen Bee is claiming identity theft.
Kim shared the above image on Wednesday adding, “Be careful what you wish for… #HardCoreMixtapeUpNext #TheQueenIsBack #QueenBee”
It’s clear Kim was taking a jab at Nicki for presumably biting off of her image to launch her now success rap career.
Are you on Nicki Minaj overload? We hope not, because the rapper is just getting started. Ms. Onika has just kicked off the official promotion of highly anticipated album, ‘The Pink Print,’ with the release of new single, “Anaconda.”
Over the weekend, we got a sneak peek and listen to Nicki Minaj’s new single “Anaconda.”
The racy single art and visuals had everyone in a frenzy, to say the least, but today Ms. Onika is getting the last laugh. The single is now the #1 rap single on the i-Tunes charts. _______READMORE
Nicki Minaj caused a frenzy last week when she unveiled the above image of the single art for new single, “Anaconda.” The highly anticipated debut single, off Nicki’s forthcoming album The Pink Print, was officially set to debut on Monday, August 4th, but has been leaked.
And there’s just one problem, despite the hot and steamy cover, the single has garnered mostly negative feedback. Sampling Sir Mix A Lot‘s 1992 single, “Baby Got Back,” the single hasn’t yet resonated with fans. Our opinion, however, the upbeat booty poppin’ number will be a commercial success.
Head over to Hot New Hip Hop to listen to the track and share your thoughts.

“Of course sometimes sh*t go down when its billion dollars on a elevator.”
As for the rapper, her verse is being referenced as one her best yet. _______READMORE
Rapper Remy Ma, real name Reminisce Smith, was released from Bedford Hills Correctional Facility, at approximately 8 a.m.Thursday morning, after serving 6 years in federal prison.
Smith was greeted by her close friends and family, including rapper and husband Papoose, real name Shamele Mackie.
If you all remember, Remy was convicted and sentenced after being found guilty for shooting former friend Makeeda Barnes-Joseph on suspicion of stealing $3,000.
During a recent phone interview with radio personality Angie Martinez, Remy revealed that not only was she excited about being released from prison but for getting her life and career back on track.
As for her competition in Hip Hop right now, Remy notes fellow rapper, Nicki Minaj, as always being supportive but also says that she’s ready to claim her spot as the dominant female emcee in the game.
As for her husband and rapper Papoose, whom she wed while incarcerated, Remy says that she was surprised by his loyalty and that he has always supported her since day one.
There are also some talk that the rapstress may have a reality show deal in the works to document her life and career post prison. We’ll keep you posted.
Are you excited from Remy’s release and return to Hip Hop?
*Update:* As of July 31, 2014, Remy’s release date has been pushed back due to a “disciplinary incident” that occurred on July 21st. It’s believed the rapper may have had an altercation with another inmate. No word yet on a future release date.
Nicki Minaj has just unveiled her cover artwork for new single “Anaconda.” Ms. Onika shared the very hot and steamy single art, Thursday morning, to announce, “7/28 #ANACONDA on iTunes.”
Although Nicki has posed “spread-eagle” before, she’s previously opted out of doing so for fear of not being taken seriously as a rapper and being seen as another overtly sexy female rapper. Well, it seems, that faze has passed. And, Nicki has long proven her skill-set as an MC and as one of the most influential and dominating female rappers of our time.
With that being said, the new single will be featured on Minaj’s upcoming and highly anticipated album ‘The Pink Print.’
Over the weekend, Nicki Minaj sparked rumored of a feud between herself and fellow rapstress Iggy Azalea during her acceptance speech during the annual 2014 BET Awards.
While accepting her award for Best Female Rapper Nicki stated, “What I want the world to know about Nicki Minaj is, that when you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it.”
“No, no, no shade. No, no, no shade,” she quickly added.
But, unfortunately for the rapper, many took her statements to be a jab at the Australian rapstress. After dominating the Billboard Charts with two recent singles, Iggy seems to be Nicki’s only competition these days.
To the surprise of no one, Nicki Minaj won for the Best Female Hip Hop Artist, Sunday night, at the annual BET Awards show at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. In fact, the rapper has won the award for this category four years in a row. But, what was surprising was Nicki’s bizarre acceptance speech.
The rapstress threw some shade, although she insisted she wasn’t trying to, by stating that she writes all her own lyrics and wanted to “thank” BET for supporting authenticity or artists that are authentic. Many felt the jab was intended for Australian rapper, Iggy Azalea.
Minaj then went on to discuss her near death experience and not wanting to call an ambulance out of fear that she would be on popular breaking news celebrity site TMZ.
Watch the bizarre speech and share your thoughts below.
For her “Pills and Potions” official visual, rapstress Nicki Minaj enlisted rapper The Game to be her leading man. Under the above image, she shared with fans on social media, Nicki writes, “Love is WAR.” Do you agree?
