Nicki Minaj is unique. And that's really saying something these days with so many cookie-cutter singers and rappers out there. Though she is associated with Lil Wayne and mainstream rap I think of her more as sort of a punk rapper. Between her rap flow, which reminds me of punk singers musical deliveries, to her very unique outfits and her fans, she is definitely a punk rapper.
I haven't bought a rap album in a very long time but I plan to buy Nicki's album.
