Nicki Minaj Appreciates “Intelligence Within Hip-Hop” So What’s With Her Yabba Dabba Dooky Raps?

- By Bossip Staff

Nicki Minaj was on the receiving end of more questions about her “let’s-be-honest” lyrics and her spastic expressions and rhyme schemes and once again managed to come up with some pretty clever answers. Check them out below.

In a recent interview with Paper Magazine Nicki Minaj reveals her “brighter” side — including her love of Shakespeare and her creative instinct.

On Her Gay Audience And Flair For Being Different:

“I see videos on YouTube where they impersonate me, and they do an amazing freaking job of dressing up as me,” she says. In past interviews she’s mentioned her own bi-curious leanings and has predicted hip-hop will one day embrace its first openly gay artist. But as far as being a gay-positive presence in hip-hop, Minaj insists, “I didn’t set out to do that. I just like to put a spotlight on the people who support me, and it just so happens, you know, that the gay community has supported me — more than I ever could have imagined.”

Likewise, she claims it’s a happy accident that her rapping style is as Sybil-ic as it is syllabic, with accents, voices, characters (“Nicki Lewinsky” and Harijiku Barbie” are two favorites), drops in pitch — as though she’s speaking in tongues. “It happened like a lot of things I do — as a mistake,” Minaj explains. “Like the freegin’ clip in my hair in the ‘My Chick Bad’ video with Ludacris. My hairdresser was curling one side and using a clip to hold my hair. I was like, ‘Leave it.’ They all looked at me like I was insane — but that’s something I do. It’s the same thing with my cadences: I’m probably running out of breath or something crazy, and it’s like, ‘This is not going to work.’ But then I’m like, ‘Let me listen,’ and it winds up being magical and I just keep it and I’m like, ‘Yeah, I love it.'”

    I feel the truth now, Nicki is a gimmick and raps are whacked like a Harry Potter vodoo spell or something.

    Cash Money is about to fall hard. Dr.Dre and Em about to shut it down.
    Shoot Em killed Drizzy in album sells and Ricky Rozay fell off hard.

    TO me she say typical hood rat ghetto broad banter that I can’t stand or relate too.

    Her voice annoys me. Her lyrics are only impressive to the easily impressed.

    She will succeed in this generation of Hip Hop because they don’t expect much to begin with and don’t know anything better.

  • Lisa

    I’m not a fan of this rap gimmick Nicki Minaj. However, I do think that she has some sense and smarts about her, but the industry has turned her into a cartoon character that can’t be taken seriously. They should let this girl be herself.
