This old video shows Nicki Minaj spitting more lyrical that performance type rhymes. I’ve been seeing comments all over asking why doesn’t she rhyme like this or saying that this is before she became weird. The truth is that many artist will get overlooked regardless of the level of talent if there isn’t something outrageous to make them stand out. Take Lady Gaga for example, she used tried for years to make it in the music business by relying on just her voice alone. It was the spectacle that brought more attention to her. How many were paying attention to Nicki Minaj before the spectacle? Yes that question is aimed at you. How many of you pay attention to the skillful artists that aren’t bringing a spectacle with their persona?
