Back in 2010, Nicki Minaj made her mainstream debut and it coincided with Lil’ Kim’s comeback. At the time, fans had grown impatient waiting on Lil’ Kim to release her long-awaited comeback album. Seeing how female emcees had struggled over the previous years, most hip hop fans were excited about Nicki Minaj.
