Nicki Minaj Twitter Message

Watch the Bang Bang video below.

Nicki Minaj was born Onika Tanya Maraj in Trinidad and Tobago. Her domestic conditions were not very feasible for a loving and supportive atmosphere so she had to make a decision one fine day. Either she was going to get a fast car and drive far away from the situation or she was going to die that way stuck in the poverty trap. Nicki‚Äôs father, Robert, was a very rough person who was hooked on drugs badly. He beat her mother, Carol, regularly and once even set their home on fire in an attempt to get rid of her. Nicki vowed that one day she would succeed in life and that she would lend a helping hand to her mother who was stuck in a rut due to this man who was making life hell for all of them. 

Nicki Minaj has African, Indian and Caribbean blood in her veins. Her mom held various bit part jobs while her father was an employee at American Express. However, like stated before, he was an alcoholic and hard core pill junkie who was a wife beater and generally obnoxious figure about the house. Nicki spent most of her time with her grandmother and occasionally visited her mother. She confesses to this day that the absence of rules made her make up the rules along the way in her life. 

During her high school days, Nicki had a passion for appearing on screen and had many boyfriends. They were both her main sources of divertissement. She tried to become an actress but it was not to be. So she took up waitressing for a while. Then her career as a rapper and songwriter really took off after Lil Wayne took her under his wing.  Her Pink Friday album got her going as far as a career in musicology was concerned.
