List Rules Vote up the sentence-enders that you think properly describe Nicki Minaj and downvote ones you find unfair or wrong.

Nicki Minaj broke out of the rap underground and into the pop spotlight after being discovered by Lil Wayne in 2009. She's found mainstream success with catchy mainstream songs like "Starship" and dance hits like "Anaconda," while still maintaining her rap cred with scene-stealing featuring verses on Kanye's "Monster" and Trey Songz's "Bottom's Up." Her lyrical skills, her trademark Bronx accent, and her larger-than-life outfits all make her a unique presence in both the rap and pop scenes, and despite the formidable competition she's facing as talented female MCs continue to demand recognition, there's still plenty of reason to believe that she deserves her title as "The Queen of Rap."

But Minaj isn't without her haters, either. People take often take issue with her combative attitude towards other women in the rap scene, her comments about sex work and feminism, and her unapologetic use of her sexuality in her videos and live performances. She's got a reputation as a prima donna and has feuded with so many artists that it's often hard to keep track of all her ongoing beefs. Worst of all, some fans say she no longer has the talent she did when she was first signed to Cash Money Records in 2009. 

What do you think about Nicki Minaj? Is she still one of the best rappers in the game, or is she played out?
