Nicki Minaj Is One Of Us On ‘The Pinkprint’, Her Best Album Yet

The album is a complete package that while swerves from ballads to hard hip-hop, there is no sense of entitlement or proving to us once again why she’s so great and desperate to spread herself thin. It’s an album that sacrifices her secrets and experiences in order to heal, and for us as her audience to better understand and treat her like a human being that’s actually lived. She’s not just the cartoon character she was so used to playing because it became a meal ticket. Truthfully, it may also be the most important hip-hop album by a female rapper in years.
