Earlier this month, Nicki Minaj released her brand, spanking new album based on her fictional alter ego, Roman. The album has evolved into a very successful album – as it has debuted no1 on the Billboard chart. But the quality lacks. Seriously. I have never been so angry in my life. I was surprised, confused and vex when I actually listened to this album. On paper, the album sounds like it could be amazing- Nicki stated that she didn’t want this album to be based around sex or violence; which is fair enough. But, I’m going to be honest. Sex and violence is what made Nicki, Roman and Martha famous in the first place. It’s like taking the Yankee hat away from Jay Z- whats the point?

The album almost has two sides. There is a hiphop attempt (“Roman Holiday”, “Come on a cone”, “I Am Your Leader”, “Beez in the Trap”, “HOV Lane”, “Roman Reloaded” and “Champion”) and a pop, all star attempt (the other 11 tracks). Oh, I forgot, there was this one track where she tried to merge her Trinidadian roots with pop, creating “Gunshot” – Yeah, having Beenie Man on a uptempo song really doesn’t work.

It is my job, as a truthful blogger, to admit when something is wrong, and this album was all wrong. The only two tracks I appreciated was “Beez In The Trap” and “Champion” other than that, it was a colouful, artistic mess. Comparing it to her previous album, ‘Pink Friday’- ‘Roman Reloaded’ has no chance. C’mon, all you barbs out there must admit that the previous album contained a lot more tunes. “Did It On Em”, “Superbase”, “Roman’s revenge”, “Right Thru Me”…  come on!

I was really disappointed with this album, AND the videos that followed it. The “Beez In The Trap” video was weird and confusing and the “Stupid Hoe” video- don’t even get me started. INFACT the whole “Stupid Hoe” song was wrong. Unlawfully wrong. Shamefully wrong. I just – urgh!

A true fan can admit when someone has fallen off. And Nicki Minaj, has indeed fallen off. Music wise.

Here’s the best song from the album, Champion:

Everyone who knows me knows that I love this woman to death. I have every song on every mixtape printed on a Tshirt. I love her. But my love for her has started to die down a bit. Oh no you say. What could have caused this preposterous predicament? Well, I guess she just ‘fell off’.

The hype for Pink Friday was insane and a lot depended on that album. Her future reputation as a female rapper – not to mention her credibility of her given title ‘Queen of Rap’. Pink Friday was a huge success and deserved all the hype and awards. But. We expected Nicki to murder her first album, what actually mattered was the continuation. The world wanted to see if she could continue being this badass female rapper. I, for one, was super disappointed with the outcome of ‘Roman In Moscow’ and I am not looking forward to her new album, ‘Roman Reloaded’.

The only reason being; I feel that good ole Nicks is running out of idea’s. There’s only so much disses to Kim I can handle. And everyone eventually gets bored of hearing how much money rappers have… so the only conclusion would be to go at another rapper. Preferably, a man.

I have contemplated the rappers she should come at and finally, I came to Jay. If Nicki was to come at Jay…. man who knows.

What do you guys think?

 

Nicki Minaj has officially announced her 2nd album ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded’ will be out in February 2012!

Nicki has decided to record her whole album as her gay-male alterego ‘Roman’, she explained “Roman will be in rare form this time. You know why? ‘Cause he no longer gives a fuck.”

I am soo excited! This is one valentines day that wont end in tears! :D
