Nicki Minaj

Even though Nicki Minaj boasts a Barbie-esque aesthetic, the 31-year-old emcee isn’t just a pretty face. Collaborating with some of the biggest names in hip-hop like Drake, Usher and Eminem, receiving endorsements from recognized brands like adidas, MAC Cosmetics and Pepsi, and holding eight BET awards, Minaj is a self-made powerhouse and has quickly become a top dog in the industry. She’s the first female artist to be featured on MTV’s annual Hottest MCs in the Game, and The New York Times suggests that she’s arguably the “most influential female rapper of all time.”
