Dear Nicki Minaj…. Step Your Cookie Up!

Who is Onika Maraj?

Who is Onika Maraj?

The time has come for me to review ‘Nicki Minaj’s dwindling ‘rap’ career. I will provide a quick summery of her sharp rise to fame and try to understand the woman behind the mask. I want to understand who Onkia Tanya Maraj is and what she stands for! I will conclude by looking at the future of Onkia’s character and her role in hip-hop history.

Ms Minaj made her debut in 2007 with her mix-tape ‘Playtime Is Over‘. By 2009 Nicki was on ‘The Come Up DVD‘ rapping on a dingy staircase; bragging loudly and flashing a stack of money. Onkia sat next to her then manager ‘Fendiallegedly responsible for naming her and providing the mass-exposure she needed to get signed.

In 2009 Nicki went on to subliminally diss at all female MC’s on her ‘Itty Bitty Piggy‘ freestyle on her ‘Beam Me Up Scotty‘ mix-tape. When other major femcee’s were busy getting locked-up or dropped Nicki positioned herself as the ‘Queen of Rap’. Minaj’s ‘Come Up DVD‘ appearances caused a bidding war leading to her record-deal with ‘Young Money‘.

OLD Nicki

By 2010 Nicki had marketed herself with; catchphrases, funny gags and lots of rap-features while releasing her debut album ‘Pink Friday‘. “Step your cookies up!” was one of Minaj’s tag lines which was aimed at all women who were slipping either lyrically, sexually or mentally. Take a listen to Minaj explain her more explicit definition of this tag-line in the video below:

Nowadays it seems like Nicki needs to take her own advice because she has almost fallen off the rap-radar with all her pop-music and American Idol work. While new artists like Iggy Azalea, Azealia Banks and Tiara Thomas have “Sharpened there number two pencils” Nicki seems to be lagging behind with the third re-release of her ‘Pink Friday‘ Album!

I believe Onika Maraj is a cut-throat business woman who enjoys stepping on other women (Lil Kim, Mariah et al) to get ahead. Onika seems shy and more comfortable hiding behind the disguise of a  ‘black barbie‘ or ‘Roman‘. It’s obvious that Minaj’s musical profit is controlled by her bosses Lil Wayne and Birdman. Ms Maraj seems content misleading young girls while making money from sexually explicit lyrics and music videos like ‘High School‘ and ‘Tap Out‘.

Nicki & Wayne simulate sex!

I’m not sure what the future holds for Onika, she probably will move into the film industry at some point filming sex scenes in romantic-comedies. Onika seems very theatrical and has a strong background in drama. I think that Onika secretly hates rapping and prefers the bright lights of Hollywood.

As for Nicki, I’m not sure if she is with; Drake, Lil Wayne, Birdman or all three depending on who has a new single out. I think it’s game over for this promiscuous Nicki character, so much for keeping it exclusive! I think she will need to be renamed before Onika can think about rapping on any serious level again!

You can listen to Nicki’s latest verse on Birdman’s new single ‘Tap Out‘ below. You may need to use some kind of protection before listening; as it’s full of more dirty lyrics.

    I’ve done been trying to tell ALL her stupid barbz this, but then again if Nicki herself cannot see it like this then I guess we shouldn’t expect her barbz to see it, either….
