Nicki Minaj is a rapper from Trinidad that grew to superstardom from signing to Lil Wayne's Young Money record label. From her debut, she had fiery flows and punchlines that were better than most of the male rappers on the scene at the time. In all fairness, she's better than most male rappers now too. Pink Friday 2 doesn't reinvent the wheel artistically. It's Nicki Minaj putting good bars on good beats. Some of the sampling seems a bit awkward and forced, but for 22 songs, the album is consistently good. Nicki's formula inspired all of the female rappers and they don't always give her credit. This album is a reminder that Nicki Minaj is a phenomenal rapper with an inspirational rap career.
