Nicki Minaj made her big screen debut this year with her role in "The Other Woman," but she's been acting for years. In fact, Nicki was in the drama program when she attended LaGuardia High School, long before she was making hits.
But was she any good back then?
Judge for yourself -- but, if a new clip that hit the 'net is any indication, she definitely had the energy and passion that has now crept into her music.
It's not clear what the clip was pulled from, though we found it on Birdman's Stunna Life website.
