Say what you want about Nicki Minaj, but she's already making her presence felt across the globe. You see all her Harajuku Barbies littered across cyberspace and assume she's just an Internet phenomenon. Having gone out a few nights ago & being surrounded by a crowd much younger than anticipated, there were so many Nicki look-a-likes walking around the club you would've thought she'd been running rap for years. Blame it on the lack of visible female emcees or whatever, but she's got a hold on a generation. And that hold goes beyond style. There's a good chance that any young girl with Rap aspirations will look to her when crafting her skills. Shoot, you don't have to search any further than 106 & Parks' First All Female Freestyle Friday to see the process already in works.
