For over two years, Nicki Minaj has been on a legendary run. The Queens rapper signed with rising record label, Young Money, in 2009. Before signing with Young Money, Nicki Minaj had risen to become one of the most-popular mixtape rappers in New York City. When she signed with Young Money, Nicki Minaj was able to expand her fan base and landed high-profile collaborations.
Before the end of 2010, Nicki Minaj had established herself as a force in the rap game. She had collaborations with Ludacris and Usher and her solo music was also doing very well. The buzz from her Pink Friday album kept her relevant into 2011. Towards the end of the year, Nicki Minaj announced she was working on her second album.
Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded will be released on Valentine’s Day 2012. However, two days before her album release will be a big day for Nicki Minaj. Via Twitter, the Young Money femcee announced she will be performing. Nicki Minaj is also nominated for four awards, so she very well may be a popular name throughout the night.
