WHY NICKI MINAJ’S PROVOCATIVE WAX FIGURE IS PROBLEMATIC [COMMENTARY]

Nicki Minaj achieved yet another great feat in her career with her very first wax figure at the Madame Tussauds museum in Las Vegas. This makes the Queens MC the first female rapper to do so. Minaj, 32, celebrated the achievement on her Instagram, calling the wax figure “iconic.” The life-like figurine depicts Minaj on all fours with her now famous booty tooted in the upright position. The depiction replicates the rapper’s controversial “Anaconda” video, in which she and a team of dancers shake their butts in female solidarity. In just 11 days it got over 100 million views. But while… Continue Reading

The Danger In Nicki Minaj and Big Booty Culture

Everyone is talking about Nicki Minaj’s butt. Ever since the female rapper released the cover art for her new single “Anaconda” (pictured above) – which shows her squating, backed turned to the camera in a g-string, with her ass in full view – many took Minaj to task for exploiting her body for music sales and shock value. While it’s no different than all the other times the female rapper got attention for her assets, this go around seems to be a public outcry against what some consider to be a gimmick executed one too many times by the rapper and,… Continue Reading

NEW SONG: Drake Goes Retro With ‘Hold On We’re Going Home’

Yet another new Drake track has been released. This time the OVO rapper goes retro in a 80s-inspired “Hold On We’re Going Home.” Drake puts pause on bars and opts for singing on this smooth love track on wax. Take a listen to “Hold On We’re Going Home” below: Usually I don’t mind Drake singing, but on this song there’s no personality and the melody sort of goes nowhere. I get that he, along with Nicki Minaj, love to sing, but sometimes he can take it a little overboard. Still, I am excited for Drake’s upcoming album, Nothing Was The… Continue Reading

NEW SONG: DJ Khaled Ft. Nicki Minaj, Future and Rick Ross ‘I Wanna Be With You’

DJ Khaled has joined his self-proclaimed love Nicki Minaj on a song that’s ironically called “I Wanna Be With You.” The track, which also features Future and Rick Ross, falls in the typical turnt up category with Minaj and Future trading bars and tunes, as Future croons the repetitious hook, “I wanna be with you.” Rozay doesn’t miss out on the fun, though. The Teflon Don, in true fashion, brags about his cash flow and lavish lifestyle. With Khaled’s recently public marriage proposal to Minaj, could the song have a deeper meaning for the We The Best record producer? You be… Continue Reading

ALBUM REVIEW: Ciara Gets Her Groove Back on ‘Ciara’

Ciara has certainly had some twists and turns in her career. After label spats and underwhelming record sales, it seemed as if the Atlanta singer had lost her way – or at least the music industry had lost her. On her fifth studio self-titled album, however, Ciara needs no help being found. On Ciara, CiCi is back with a sassy vengeance. Putting her last two commercially waned albums (Fantasy Ride, Basic Instincts) to the side, Ciara dusts herself off and comes out swinging. If her lead single, “Body Party,” the album’s comeback record that single-handedly resurrected the singer’s career straight to… Continue Reading
