- By Bossip Staff

Lil Kim may not agree, but the newly dubbed “Queen of Hip-Hop”, Nicki Minaj, has definitely stolen the hearts of Rolling Stone Magazine.

In the new spread featuring the Young Money Princess, Nicki opens up about her success in the industry and why being famous wasn’t her agenda behind making it in Hip-Hop.

    In MY opinion she’s not the Queen of Hip hop, although she has a GREAT talent! That title is given BY THE PEOPLE!

  • ignoranceisbliss

    Why they crowning these kids kings and queens before they put in some real work…

    top ten emcee..drake one album

    Come on give the people three albums at least then lets see

    • Bunny(formerly Angel/UrHeiness)

      Real talk!! Music is really down the crapper nowadays..SMDH!!..But the fact is that there are really no true/talented artists out there right now..well,the ones that have these qualities aren’t given a chance to shine or have very poor management..Sad but true.

    • aretheyserious?

      I can’t even get through 1 of her songs without getting frustrated cause there is simply NO SKILL to it..

      She’s just unique as far as her look and popular because of it, that is truly all.

      Queen? I think not.

    • E.C. from D.C.

      They are trying really hard to convince people to buy into her huh? lol

      Yesssssssssssssssssssss! Nicki is the future Queen of hip hop. Her album sales for week 1 are predicted to be close second to Kayne West whose predicted to sell over 500,000 copies. Nicki work ethics, business savy, open mindiness, creativity, 5 year goal plans and affiliations with Young Money are going to land Nicki at the top of the sales chart. You just wait and see. All hail the Queen of Hip Hop.

    • Sigh! Come On Yall!

      @ Lylie…The predictions about Nicki’s records sales were dead wrong…1st week out she sold <200K. Too much hype too fast leads a crapp azz no talented artist and a 6ft under album!!!!
      Lets gett it together yall. Minaj is NOT the new face of Hip Hop and she has not been in the industry long enough to RIGHTFULLY earn ANY awards or real Titles of distinction!!!

  • What happened to HipHop?

  • MissPerfect

      Yo, STFU with that – “its so rude and disrespectful” bull. Ain’t nobody OWN hip hop! Get a fuqin’ grip and get rid of that hoodrat mentality. There’s room for everybody.

    • blackfriday babeh

      w/e hannibal but use ur brain for once and most people know whats up the title Queen are for artist that do work hard only thing nicki is doing acting all the way to the bank and u dont even see it only thing u see is azz and thats talent enouf u want to see in a rapper lol but shes queen by default in the days when kim was running she had competition and nicki does have no1 walking in her way thats why she seems diffrent because there arent any activ fem rappers outthere to compare her with so why dont u stfu and listen with ur ears and not with ur pickle sized D%%%

  • sowhat

  • SCarter

    If this chick is the queen of Hip-Hop, then Hip-Hop is truly officially DEAD!!

    • Big Dog

      Yes if nicki is the queen of hip hop then yes the hell it is dead

  • moon

    Nicki doing her thing but there is no other female rapper with buzz and AND an album out. Lady MC’s need to stop beefing like the dudes cuz there is room for them All if given a fair shot. Respect to Rah Digga, MC Lyte, Bahamadia and Jean Grae!

  • Vernita Green

    It’s not IF she ever falls, it’s WHEN she falls. Queen of hip-hop my a$$.

  • Mockielyn

    And who is this Lil Him??? *rolling eyes*

  • prissa

    How is she the Queen on anything this early in her career? Besides, I thought Mary J Blige was the Queen of hip hop. What is Mary then?

    • shake em

      Mary is R&B with a touch of hip hop

    • VirgoJewel

      I think Mary was dubbed the Queen of RnB Soul.

    • BS2010

      Mary is the Queen of “HIP-HOP SOUL”

  • lovwfwefw

    FARRRRRRRRR from Queen?? Did ya NOT hear her leaked album???

    ughh, Nicki is so forced -_-

  • siyt

    YAY! once white people say it black people will follow!!! im no barbie but i agree.

  • JAE :)

    QUEEN of hip hop? Yeaaa not so much, that’s is disrespectful to all that came before her who had AMAZING albums and got brushed over this trick got one album and it aint even been out a week and its CRAPPY smmfh!

  • try me

    and therein lies the problem with hip hop…really music in general these days. no one has to work for anything before getting crowned “this or that”. is is ridiculous. the girl put out one mediocre album and now she is the new queen…please. how many albums did mary j blige have to submit before she was considered the queen of anything? what about jay-z? its time we start really expecting better sh$t from are artists BEFORE we decide to hang from their b@lls or we will continue to get this candy corned sh#t and artists that think they’re are better than they really are.

  • yvonne

    What does rolling stone know about hip-hop? First of, is she a hip hop or pop artist? The so called queen is very confused.

  • shake em

    nahhhhhhhh. i like nicki. she has a kookie personality. she’s different lyrically from her female predecessors (you can’t say shes imitating kim lyrically, bc than there wouldn’t be a problem with her). Shes a great guest/featured artist. She can definitely improve her solo work. With that said she is not the queen of hip hop (nor is kim). 1st lady? Sure. Thats a temporary title. Queen just sounds to permanent. Lauryn Hill all time fave.

  • Alterna-NG

    I don’t think she’s the queen.

  • Rell

    She’s the only female in the game, so dubbing her queen doesn’t make sense. Now if there were other females in the game and she was on top of them, then dub her queen, but when she is the only female around, it’s silly to dub her queen.

  • BishPlease

    LOL KIM roasted her a** on black friday diss. just goes to show what real talent can do to a phony a** gimmick.

  • preis

    Ppl r so hateful, damn
