Nicki Minaj Admits To Being "Better Than Most Of The Male Rappers Out"

Nicki Minaj says she doesn't receive the credit she deserves as a rapper, blames it on an industry run by men.

Young Money rapper Nicki Minaj didn’t shy away from speaking on her lyrical side during an exclusive interview with “MTV First” and even referred to herself as being “better than most of the male rappers out there.”

The Queens emcee, who also moonlights as a judge on American Idol, blamed the lack of credit she receives as a rapper on Hip Hop being an industry that’s heavily dominated and run by men.

“This time I care less about the acceptance and more about me being the lyrical, ill bitch that I am. Knowing that I am lyrically better than most of the male rappers out there,” Minaj explained in a video posted on AllHipHop.com. “Yes, I’m gonna say it. I don’t get the credit that I deserve. Like ‘Up In Flames’ on The Re-Up. If a dude was on that song with me everyone would have talked about it and they would say ‘Oh, who had the best verse?’ or ‘Blah Blah blah.’ But when I put a song out by myself…Men run the Hip Hop game, let’s be honest…They not gonna recite a female. They just feel funny and it is what it is.”

Minaj’s comments on her lyrical skills stemmed from a question regarding the pressure she feels as an artist who rose to icon-status in such a short period of time.

“I think I had more pressure during my second album. Because I had just sold 2.5 million records worldwide after eight years of [being] a female rapper. Even having a number one on Billboard,” said the rapper prior to her comment about today’s male rappers. “So I had all these things in my head like, ‘Can I live up to this?’ It’s just I felt so bombarded with everything people were expecting.”

Nicki Minaj is currently at work prepping for her third studio album.

    EVERYONE! Nicki has potential, she just hasn't reached it.. Her good verses were obvi monster, up all night and hell yeah (her song) she could be the best in the game but she needs to stop being wack. Also y'all just haters, actually listen to her sometimes, unlike calling her a hoe.

  • OK!

    It's sad to see that no one on this website can read. I believe she said This time I care less about the acceptance and more about me being the lyrical, ill bitch that I am. Knowing that I am lyrically better than most of the male rappers out there, referring to the growth mindset she'll have for this next album Pink Friday: The Pinkprint. If that's the mindset she wants to go in using then fine just make sure the outcome is not crossover like Roman Reloaded, same realm of concept as Pink Friday and swagger of her mixtapes with a touch with her star power and what she's learned working beside super producers Randy and Jimmy Iovine and being on Idol

  • OK!

    She's thinking just like she was thinking when she first came out.

  • imperialshalom

    She sounds bitter to me. The music speaks for itself and excuses for why people don't recognize your "lyrical ability" don't help your argument. If you can spit I say prove it on the next album because a couple verses don't make you dope consistancy does!

  • simpleTOM

    this broad is off her rocker completely. she is an insult to hip hop. i cringe at the thought of ANYONE associating her with hip hop/rap. there are a few instances where i thought she had a decent flow. but I never thought she dropped any bars. the only female rapper that was much better than a high percentage of male rappers is rah digga. she served plenty of emcees on the mic and during rap battles.

  • PhillyMu

    I wonder if she truly believes that "Roman Reloaded" bullshit was the "greatness" her fans expected of her. You gotta be good first to be great. I can only point to 3 Nicki songs/verses that I can say were good. 1. Moment For Life, 2. Monster verse & 3. "Up All Night" verse on Drake's Thank Me Later album. That's all I got

  • #teamjarule

    She will never be better than Ja Rule

  • John-Boy

    I am not a Nicki fan at all but if look at the current list of top rappers anybody can say they are better than most of them. Hell, I dont rap but if I sat down and thought out some lyrics I could easily compete with these garbage ass dudes. Just look at some of her competition. 2 Chainz, Waka, Future, Gucci,Rick Ross, Big Sean, and Kanye West and even Lil Wayne. All of them are hot by today's standards but none are lyrically potent. Not one of these artists have any verses even remotely dope as what she said on 'Monster'. I think people just need to put her comment into some perspective. She honestly is not far from the truth.

  • BlazeDatIshUp

    This dumb bitch is delusional. Then again you gotta remember she is on a label where every artists is wack as fuck, but claims they are the greatest or one of the best in the game. Greatest at what I dunno, but as far as rapping they are all a waste of space, just like this dumb hoe.

    I wonder if she would be successful without all the plastic surgery she's had or without riding the coattails of Lil Wayne and Drake. Would she be successful if she didn't resort to making pop records? (Starships was a real hip-hop classic ay Nicki?). She's had a few good bars and maybe she is better than some male rappers (shout out to Benzino!) but there's a ton of female rappers better than her.

  • Lool

    LOOL @ all the male bloggers below cussing & hating on a female Nicki doing her thang

  • John

    Please tell me this is a belated April Fools joke. This woman has not a shred of talent and her songwriting skills are non-existent. Here is one example from that song 'Up in Flames' which also has the most generic lyrics for the chorus: "I'm in Saint Tropez on a big boat/On my way to make a billi like a big goat/Pull my dick out in case you bitches get a slick throat." She's nothing but a pretentious, attention seeking whore who used the same sexism she complains about to become 'famous.'

  • Roos

    Well it seems to be her brains are in her tits.......... This is what she does to get attention and her team bird man and lil wayne should all be shipped to a stand alone island to live out there music fantasy since it's not HIP HOP I Can't believe I even found time to type this for them Ughhhhh

    I think she is confusing nagging and crying with being lyrical. When she does a show she has an audience of 12 to 18 yr old little girls. If she wants to hang with the big doggs she should being doing shows like "paid dues" or "rock the bells" and support real hip hop. Show and prove.

  • FACT

    REAL female rappers are Roxanne Shante, Queen Latifah, MC Lyte, Monie Love, Yo-Yo, Boss, Nefertiti, Bahamadia, Mecca Black, Lil Kim, Foxy Brown, Eve, Jean Grae, Rah Digga, Lauryn Hill, Lady of Rage, and several others alike or better. Even Mary J. Blige (when see raps), Sweet Tee, Da Brat, Left Eye, and the other average, yet decent rappers are better than you. Sorry Nicki Minaj, but you lost and destroyed your rep when you sucked Lil' Wayne's bisexual dick for fame and sold your soul to become a global, generic pop star and an American Idol host. You were never even that good of a rapper to begin with. When you blew up in late 2009-early 2010, you were this weird and annoying rapper, but still half-decent at best nevertheless. However, you were better then than you are currently. You are a full-blown industry bitch now. Seriously, you are a walking version of a Lady Gaga and Lil Kim hybrid and cater to people who love RuPaul and have a bad taste in music. Also, the only female rapper that is allowed to both sing and rap in songs is much more superior Lauryn Hill. My take on this is issue is that YOU stop being a whoring, self-entitled crybaby. This is not a sexist issue. You are just not very good at rapping and you clearly sold out; thus you are not a true hip hop artist. So either go back to your fucking roots and attempt to prove us wrong, or begone and become a laughing stock of a has-been in the near future. Lady Gaga is no longer relevant because she relied on shock value, tired antics, tired promiscuity, and everything else to make her music "good" and lure people in. You (Nicki Minaj), YMCMB, MMG, Justin Bieber, and all of the other no-talent hacks will soon fade into obscurity as well. You and countless others are a fucking disgrace to music.

    • THIS

      NICOLAS you are spot on. I also forgot to mention Missy Elliot (as well as her creativity), Trina, and other dope female rappers who are much better than Nicki Minaj. And I meant Mecca Star, not "Mecca Black"; I fucked up on that one. Look at this list here >>> femalerappers (dot) tumblr (dot) com (slash) listofrappers At least 95% of the female rappers on that list are better than Nicki Minaj. So if he's not better than most of them, then she damn sure isn't fucking with at least half of the overall population of male rappers in the mainstream and underground combined. She's merely a spokesperson and replacement of Lady Gaga for the LGBT and tween community now. I'm also sick of these newcomers dissing vets like Mariah Carey (Nicki), Common & Ludacris (Drake) to name a few. Also, sick of newcomers calling their albums "classic" before day of release (ex: Meek Mill, French Montana, Kendrick Lamar, etc). And damn sure sick of people comparing themselves to Snoop & Dre (ex: 2Chainz & Kanye West) and countless other vets, trolling the hip hop game with shit like Tupac's Back (ex: Rick Ross, Lil B), being hypocrites and scared to call out the bullshit in hip hop (most fans and rappers), and doing bullshit sellout attempts (ex: Slaughterhouse). Sick of people doing songs with dead talents like 2Pac (Tyga), Aaliyah (Drake), and whoever the hell else to make themselves look better. And fucking tired of dickriding and bullshit excuses from stans. When will the fuckery stop?

    • NICOLAS

      She whines about not being nominated for a Grammy as if it were a given, totally ignoring the fact that their are REAL artists who have put much more effort into their music for 10years and they did this WITHOUT tripping naked, shaking their Clunge at men, shaking there booty selling sex (beez in the trap, freaks, stupid hoe), rapping nursery rhymes a 2year old cuda written or without going for the 'easy hit' cough cough *Pound The Alarm*.| She then comes on Breakfast 105 and moans & throws her toys out the pram like a bitch moaning about radio hosts not listening to dat money makin scheme 're'-up trash reloaded' She calls her fans 'barbs' & 'ken barbs' even though the woman is hitting 31years of age Does songs with Justin Bieber, Willow Smith & Calvin Harris - for easy makin money (willow smith song 'fireball' was MAJOR flop my i add' Verbally attacks & shows NO respect to a LEGEND like Mariah Carey, a woman who outsells arenas on pure soul/r&b music.

    You YMCMB haters are fucking idiots. Because I'm an accountant for Cash Money Records, I spend a lot of time with Birdman. He told me that in 96, Biggie was looking to get out of his contract with Bad Boy so he could sign with Cash Money. If Cash Money is right for Biggie, then it's clearly the top record label. Unfortunately, Jay-Z and Diddy found out about Biggie's upcoming departure and had him shot. Also, Birdman as always a role model for Pac. Most of you don't know this, but the song Hit Em Up was originally supposed to be Split Em Up, a song where Pac brags about fucking Faith, leading to her breakup with BIG. But Birdman explained to Pac that real gangsta's talking about killing people, so that's how Hit Em Up took on such a violent tone. YMCMB for life. We got the game by the clit.

      Looks like you got all sad and emotional from the cold truth huh? It hurts the ass being so irate from my honesty doesn't it? You are the type of sutpid, wasteful person who would let the bullshit go on rather than fix it. This is one of the reasons why the economy, education, government, entertainment industry, and everything else is fucked up because people like you would rather go with the flow rather than make shit better. That's how the Nazis got complete control, which was due to people's fear and submission (like your pussified sorry ass). Continue ignoring the truth and not wanting to fix shit. That's also part of the reason as to why no-talents such as Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne are popular because no one wants to wake up and demand better. Stop letting the standards decline. And yes, I (and everyone else) need to get my lazy ass up and fight for REAL change as well.

      Jay-Z stans count and brag about his money and success. Odd Future stans blow ALL of the members, prostitute for rare tracks and shitty expensive OFWGKTA merchandise, and take it up the ass from Tyler The Creator, Frank Ocean, and Earl Sweatshirt. Tupac stans are delusional dummies who think he's a non-bipolar political activist, as well as Jesus Christ, and that he'll be resurrected in 2014. Kendrick Lamar stans believe he's the greatest rapper of all time and that his "classic" albums (the underground Section.80 and the very overrated GKMC) "saved hip hop". Immortal Technique stans believe every little conspiracy theory. Nearly are hip hop fans/stans are hypocritical, delusional, servile dickeaters.

She got signed by Young Money, sold millions of records (which is hard for a female artist especially during this day and age), and was asked to be on American Idol but yet she says she doesn't get the credit she deserves? I'm sorry but she sounds like a whiny ass diva. Just saying

    • A-Game

      @anonymous I never said she was good at rapping. I'm saying because of her popularity she shouldn't be complaining because there are artists that are way more talented that have problems getting the type of exposure she has. Her complaining about getting her "props" makes her seem like she's being a cry baby. She should be thankful where she's at.

    • anonymous

      That's has nothing to do with good rapping, if she could really rap she wouldn't be where she is now. You gotta be terrible at rappin nowadays to make it as a succesful rapper.

      all that shit was accomplished by selling out.

  • WakenBaken

    Okay, I've seen Nicki Lewinsky grow as a rapper, and ya kno she did her thing with that Beam Me Up Scotty mixtape, and then she took off like a year after that... She was really on top of the game in my opinion in the female emcee realm like after that sick verse on Monster w/ Kanye West. But then she started going solo forreal, apart from YMCMB and she got her own style with her "singing" and rapping. I listened to her less at that time, but I'd admit she had a strong presence in the game. I completely lost her after hearing that song Starships, not a fan at all. That's some wack direction to take her music... I mean knowing that she was being all tough on all verses, and then going all melodic. Didn't see that coming... Anyways, I support her creativeness and yes she can be considered better than most male rappers at the moment, because she delivers decent punchlines BUT ONLY ON THE SONGS SHE FEATURES ON. Her solo tracks ain't shit really...But she did get that whole female emcee battle going on in the recent few years, where Lil Kim, Foxy, Eve, Trina, etc all up on each other.

    • Prynce

      ....So much lose in this paragraph. How is having good punchlines in guest features (debatable, to say the least) and shitty solo songs make you better than most male rappers?

  • GoGettum

    lol she sucks just as much as the rappers that r out today!!!Talk about lyrical u should listen 2 dem underground dudes 2day Prince EA, Action Bronson, Kid Ink, OnCue, Penny Shaw, Lyrically iLLz, so much more

  • YMCMBKILLA

    before she signed to the gay parade of hiphop, she was a decent rapper.after the deal, she became a female version of wayne, then she wanted to brittney spears, now she goes harder than most male rappers? confidence is one thing, but i think it's prooven who the wackest people in rap music is, people dont wanna say it because they will be labaled as haters, but if you wack, you wack period point blank.in ten years, ymcmb will not be a footnote in hiphop history only a laughing remember them joke.

  • Slimdog

    If she would rap about something RELEVANT when she raps on her own, maybe men would recite her raps. Talking about nonsense doesn't qualify you as lyrical or maybe even good for that matter.

    Nick dat bitch. stop hating and get a job

    Good trolling Nicki, I give you props for that. And that big ol fake ass...that's about it

  • VickLovesDogs

    Is she out of her fucking mind?!?

  • Hmm

    Her entire crew are a bunch of self proclaimed greats. How about this? Let your career play itself out and the fans will decide whether or not you're deserving of the title 'great'. Thank God there's some good hip hop finally on the rise again, it's been too long. I'm tired of this wannabe disco crap.

    My only response to this is... HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

    "claims" rather than admits. It's not a statement of fact. If "all the male rappers out" = YMCMB - then in my opinion she's right. But if she's referring to the industry as a whole, then she's out of her depth. I'd make the case she's not the best female rapper if I'm honest. It's an arrogant, slightly condescending, comment from someone who's ill-informed about what they're talking about. I like some of her music... I increasingly don't like her.

  • Nicki Minaj is a dumb ho

    The headline should have used the word "Claims" as opposed to "Admits". This bitch is a joke and a stain on hip hop. She's a living walking stereotype that "confirms" a whole bunch of racist beliefs people have against black folks. She should be ashamed. She proudly flies the flag of ignorance

    She can rhyme although I am not crazy about her songs ...switched up to get that paper which is smart...she startd on DVDs...may nt like it but gotta respect her grind and hustle

  • ....

    "Admits To Being "Better Than Most Of The Male Rappers Out"" You mean she says she is, and even then she be saying she's better than Future, Gucci Mane, Wocka Flocka Flame, Lil Wayne, Gudda Gudda, Birdman etc. etc. "They not gonna recite a female. They just feel funny and it is what it is. Well we all loved Lauryn Hill. And talk about women MCs not getting credit just look how famous you are and look at Rapsody who is obviously an iller MC but is extremely underground. Bitch you talk too much.

  • King Tut

    I'm not against the idea of a female saying she's underrated or could hang with most of the guy MC's (Jean Grae, Rah Digga & Rapsody come to mind). But if you believe that you're one of the best, you have to prove it. Nicki has stood out on songs with Kanye West, Jay-Z & Eminem. But that doesn't mean anything if you turn around to become a pop princess. Her last album had a couple good songs out of 19. The rest was a wasteland of bad pop music. So no Nicki, you're right where everyone placed you, you have a couple good songs. But that's doesn't give you the excuse to call yourself underrated.

  • Anonymous

    The industry is male dominated because the females like her use it as a stepping stone to go Hollywood, pop, or some other form of selling out. Not just her but Lil Kim, Queen Latifah, Eve, and I'm sure more to come.

  • griz

    maybe she's not getting the recognition cuz she FUCKIN SUCKS at rapping

    If she's better then why she ain't got a rap album then?

    • Anonymous

      Cause most rap albums don't sell. If she can adapt to what sells then more power to her and her pocketbook.

  • Josh

    She's a female version of Lil Wayne: Nasty MF'er who only cares about cashing checks.

  • 614grind

    Oh Nicki...stop. You jacked Kim's whole image, made millions doing it, and now you think you're underrated? FOH.
