Minaj was the first female artist included on MTV’s Annual Hottest MC List, with The New York Times’s editor Brent Staples saying that some consider her “the most influential female rapper of all time”. Her rapping is distinctive for its fast flow and the use of alter egos and accents, primarily British cockney. Early in her career, Minaj was known for her colorful costumes and wigs. In April 2013, she became the most-charted female rapper in the history of the Billboard Hot 100.

As a small child, Minaj and a sibling lived with her grandmother in Saint James. Her mother, who had moved to The Bronx, New York to attend Monroe College and brought her husband six months later, brought them to Queens, New York, when Minaj was 5.

By then the family had a house on West 147th Street. Minaj recalled, “I don’t think I had a lot of discipline in my household. My mom motivated me, but it wasn’t a strict household. I kind of wanted a strict household.” Minaj successfully auditioned for admission to LaGuardia High School in Manhattan, which focuses on visual and performing arts. After graduation, Minaj wanted to become an actress, and she was cast in the Off-Broadway play In Case You Forget in 2001. When her acting career failed to take off, at age 19 she worked as a waitress at Red Lobster in the Bronx, but was fired for discourtesy to customers. She said she was fired from “at least fifteen jobs” for similar reasons. She also worked as an administrative assistant, in customer service and as an office manager for a Wall Street business.

Minaj is a Christian, and has stated that after her father went to rehab and began attending church, “he got saved and started changing his life”. In July 2011, Minaj’s cousin, Nicholas Telemaque, was murdered near his home in Brooklyn, which she references in her songs “Champion”: “Cause they killed my little cousin, Nicholas/ But my memory’s only happy images”, and “All Things Go”: “I lost my little cousin to a senseless act of violence”. In late 2014, Minaj separated from her longtime boyfriend Safaree Samuels. Several tracks on The Pinkprint are believed to have been inspired by the end of their relationship. She also revealed she had an abortion as a teenager in her song “All Things Go”. Minaj began dating rapper Meek Mill in early 2015.
