Monday Motivation!

Ever famous Nicki Minaj, may paint a pretty unique picture of rap and hip-hop in the 21st Century; but all was not good for Minaj while growing up. Like so many families in Queens (New York), she too, faced the dilemmas of domestic tides. Minaj's father was a severe drug addict and abused her mother. Apparently he has even set fire to the family's home in an {failed} attempt to kill his wife. In an interview with ContactMusic, she said that these experiences and the poor condition of her family helped her to rise above the life her parents had. She always had this "Female Empowerment" in her mind because she always wanted her mother to be strong and she couldn't be! Minaj knew that if she becomes successful, she can change the lives of her mother and her family. At the age of 12, she authored her first rap, then tried her hands on acting at La Guardia High School of Music and Art. Nicki Minaj was featured in seven songs on Billboard's Hot 100 at the same time, even before the release of her debut album in 2010!
