2009 - CD & Mixtape Reviews

Nicki Minaj, DJ Holiday, & The Trap-A-Holics
Beam Me Up Scotty
Nicki the Ninja has created a sub-culture of harajuku barbie bitches and her
fan club probably doubled with this mixtape. Though a few freestyles like
“Best I Ever Had” and “Get Silly” could have been left off, overall the
complaints are few. Young Money’s diva impresses on nearly every song
starting with “I Get Crazy.” The ode to Fendi and Louis (”Shopaholic” with
Bobby V and Gucci Mane) is also worth a listen, along with “Keys Under Palm
Trees” and “Easy” with Gucci and Rocko. Nicki’s image may be similar to a
Lil Kim, but her range of skill and content are superior. Kim can swallow a
Sprite can-Nicki can rap, act, and sing. - Ms. Rivercity
