The past year in hip hop can be summed up in two words, Nicki Minaj. Three years ago, Lil Wayne officially took over the radio waves and began shouting out Young Money. On the mixtape level, a lady named Nicki Minaj was winning men over with her curves and sexually suggestive lyrics.
In 2009, Lil Wayne added a new fan base when Nicki Minaj was signed to Young Money. When he went to prison, she took over the rap game, overlapping Drake. Now, Nicki Minaj is the biggest name in rap, after a high-profile feud with Lil' Kim. Nicki Minaj is focused on expanding her brand.
Recently, Nicki Minaj announced she was going to soon have her own fragrance line. She said the scent will not be bubble gum, despite what many may think. The fragrance will be summery, since Nicki's favorite season is summer. While she wants a summer smell, she also wants it to have a certain impact on the fans so they will continue to buy it.
There is no set date on Nicki Minaj's fragrance line.
