Young Money rapper Nicki Minaj current place in Hip Hop is envied by many past and present female rappers and rightfully so. The new reigning queen of rap music is the only female hip hop star to make Forbes Hip Hop Cash Kings list.
This helps the Trinidadian rapper to solidify her spot in the rap game as one of the highest paid female rapper in hip hop history.
Minaj comes in at number 15 on the list with a gross of $6.5 million tying with producer Swizz Beatz and beating out rap heavy weights such as Rick Ross, 50 Cent, B.o.B. and T-Pain, who all earned $$6 million and under.
This is only the beginning for the heavy weight champ as she recently ink a deal with MAC cosmetics and confirmed acting role in Ice Age: Continental Drift. Paving the way for more acting gigs.
No doubt Nicki Minaj will inspire young girls to go after their dreams.
Go Ms. Minaj
