When people think about being a rapper or singer, they often think of having a big voice. Nick Minaj is not one of those rappers. Her vocals are very quiet and soft. She likes to make sure that she doesn’t overpower the lyrics with her voice. Instead, she lets her words shine so that the listener can hear them clearly.
Nick Minaj‘s style and attitude have been compared to rapper Eminem. Both singers love to use profanity and curse words in their songs. However, while Eminem uses his language for shock value, Nick Minaj actually takes it seriously. She even says in interviews that if she ever had a daughter, she would want her to understand how bad some of these words really are.
