Nicki Minaj Compares Her Struggle To Stardom To Taylor Swift's Music Industry Battles

Mina Muzumdar |Jul 08, 2019

Nicki Minaj marked her 12 years in the music industry while comparing her tough journey to Taylor Swift's music industry battles.

It's twelve years since rapper-singer Nicki Minaj released her first set of music Play Time Is Over, the female artist proved her influence in the music industry.

Until now, Nicki Minaj is the only female singer who has 100 appearances on Billboard Hot 100 and four of her studio albums have gone triple Platinum, double Platinum and single Platinum.

The singer then took to Instagram to commemorate the occasion, wrote: "12 years ago I dropped my 1st mixtape. Wrote every single word on every single song. I was so proud of that."


A commenter, however, told Nicki not to show off and "stop these rants" cited that her influence doesn't need to be explained here. She wrote: "I love Nicki but she has got to stop these rants. She bites the bait every time which is what they want. Whats understood don't need to be explained. Everyone already knows what you did for the female rap game."


Soon after, Nicki Minaj slapped back the troll saying: "Blocked for being fking dumb & wanting black women to keep being afraid to speak their truth. Taylor Swift can speak but I can’t?!" The Anaconda singer further added: "I always shouted out my influences in my interviews."

Another fan then argued that Nicki Minaj needed "to shout out Lil Kim...she prob felt like she got no recognition from you and you reincarnated her style." In response, Nicki Minaj replied: "I shouted her out in all my early interviews. That's YOUR narrative. Not the RIGHT one. I recreated her pose as a sign of paying homage."

Though being one of the most controversial rapper-singer, Nicki Minaj's talent is undeniable in the industry. Apart from being the most awarded female rapper ever, she also made history by becoming the first female artist with 100 career visits to the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
