Nicki Minaj: 'I Want To Inspire Little Girls To Become Rappers'

 

04 April 2012

Artists like Nicki Minaj have paved the way for young talented female rappers to make their name in the music industry- and now Nicki has revealed that she wants Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded to inspire young girls to pursue their dreams.

Nicki recently told MTV that she hopes her soon to be released album will teach younger musicians to be ambitious and embrace experimentation.

She said, "If there's one thing I want people to take away from it, it's just that little girls can aspire to be anything, and that's all I want people to see."

She added, "Whether you follow Nicki Minaj's blueprint or not, just don't be afraid to experiment, and don't allow people to knock your hustle just cause it ain't something that you're used to seeing."

Nicki finished off by saying, "I like that I'm there because it gives little girls in Southside Jamaica, Queens or South Africa or Brazil a moment to say, 'Oh wait, I can be a female rapper!' Yes, you really can."

Nicki's Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded was made available for download today (April 4).

What do you think? Is Nicki a role model?
