Review: Nicki Minaj Pink Friday

I have an un-healthy relationship with hip-hop artist Nicki Minaj wherein only two extreme versions of myself enjoy her music. One is the productive girl who wakes up at 6:30am to fit in a morning jog before work. She gets on the treadmill and turns on “Super Bass” to get her heart rate up to a reasonable BPM. The other, is a debauched bitch who hops from party to party on weekends. She’s notoriously known to spill her drink unforgivingly on girls who won’t stop screaming in front of the DJ booth about who would have the cutest headphones if they were MC’s. Hearing the fourth song “Beez in the Trap” off of Nicki’s album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded for the first time at an afterhours loft party this weekend, I anxiously awaited the time put aside to review her album. But just like Nicki’s array of accents from cockney to quick-witted bimbo Barbie, this superstar’s sophomore album is all over the place.
