Today, Nicki Minaj appeared on "RapFix Live" and answered questions you, the fans, tweeted to @MTVRapFix with the hashtag #hottestmcs and #rapfixlive and uploaded to your.mtv.com. Questions began rolling in last Friday as Barbies submitted queries to us—we see you JeanelleB and we love your video questions!—throughout the week for their chance to connect with the Nickster. Make sure you check out our photo gallery of Nicki on "RapFix Live" for more Barbie.
While we usually shoot "RapFix Live" with Sway live and direct here on RapFix and MTV.com, we filmed this week's show last night. But don't worry, we'll get back to our roots with a live show soon.
To celebrate her Hottest MCs in the Game rank and penchant for entertaining faces, we figured today would be a great opportunity to chat with Nicki Minaj and her multiple personalities, including Roman Zolanski and Barbie themselves. We admit ... Roman might've scared Sway a bit when she appeared but the two ultimately got along fine. She even told us that her mother, Martha, would be appearing on Pink Friday, along with Slim Shady, er, Eminem. Yes, Nicki Minaj will be rapping alongside Detorit's own Eminem! We're excited too but not at all surprised.
"Most artists, they come out and they just want to rhyme, and that's cool," said Busta Rhymes, another "RapFix Live" guest, when describing Nicki's talent. "But she's not afraid to deliver as a character, so big up to Nicki Minaj as well."
Following Sunday's premiere of the "2010 Hottest MCs in the Game" on MTV2, Nicki said she's been trying to absorb her position at #6 in the "elite club" of MCs. We salute you Nicki, you deserve it.
