Hip-hop, Nicki Minaj, What's Beef?, Where They Do That At?, Young Money

TORONTO, ON – AUGUST 03: Drake perfrrms during 2015 OVO Fest at Molson Canadian Amphitheatre on August 3, 2015 in Toronto, Canada. 

I hate that it took Meek Mill’s foolish tweets to get me back blogging. But this whole foolish beef between him and @drake has put a spark back in the game of social media. So, for the longest all we had to look forward to was the reality show tweets, new albums, boyfriend/girlfriend drama, NBA finals, lame award shows, “break babies” and all the other b.s that floods Twitter and Instagram daily.

The Transformation of Nicki

Nicki Minaj

The phenomenon that is Nicki Minaj….. What is the fascination with this chick? I don’t think I’ll ever figure it out. She does have her own original style. I don’t know why nobody ever thought about styling themselves after Barbie before, but it was a great idea and it worked. At one point I was tired of the whole Barbie craze. I mean you can’t be a size 22 talking about, “It’s Barbie b$%#h.” That just doesn’t work. So how did Nicki go from Onika Tanya Maraj, to Nicki Minaj? We do know that she was born in Trinidad and moved to Queens, New York when she was five years-old. And we know she was discovered on MySpace and signed to Young Money. But what happened in between? Some people swear Nicki was this butch girl who had some sort of crazy ‘relationship’ with incarcerated rapper, Remy Ma.

I’m not too sure about that one but obviously her fans don’t seem to care either. Over time Nicki has grown on us and she seems almost normal now. Her rhyme style reminds me a lot of an early Lil’ Kim, but hey Kim ain’t doing nothing with it so why shouldn’t Nicki? I do like some of her songs, but at times she sounds a lot like Fire Marshall Bill from ‘In Living Color’. “LET ME SHOW YOU SOMETHING”.

Lil’ Kim & Nicki Minaj

Nicki has a gimmick that sells, but for how long? With Lil’ Wayne locked up, Nicki has joined forces with Diddy, and we know Diddy is a genius when it comes to hyping people up and then ruining their careers. So, we’ll have to wait and see if Nicki Minaj can stay on top as the ‘Barbie of Hip-Hop’ or end up like Skipper?

Stunting Like My Daddy-Lil’ Wayne

Lauren London had her whole career ahead of her. After appearing in the 2006 movie, ATL as T.I.’s love interest, Lauren was being offered tons of scripts and roles to consider. Now the only role she will be remembered for is the role of ‘one of Lil’ Wayne’s baby mommas.’ I know how it sounds, but wait there’s more. Apparently, she’s not the only one carrying his seed.


R & B singer Nivea is also pregnant by Lil’ Wayne and both women are due in September. Nivea who was married to singer/producer The Dream, already has three children.

Lil’ Wayne also has two other children with two other women, Reginae, (10) by ex-wife, Antonia Carter and 6 month-old Dwayne Michael Carter III, by Sarah B, a Vietnamese/Caucasian nail tech from Cincinnati.

This will be real interesting because Lauren had to find out about Nivea’s pregnancy via the internet. Now Weezy doesn’t want to have anything to do with Lauren, AND him and Nivea are supposed to get married in the next few months. Lauren is so worried about what this situation will do to her career that she’s turning down roles and will only be photographed from the neck up. I can’t wait to see how this plays out.
