Nicki Minaj feat. Lil Wayne Rap Legends?? What a Joke!

I got so HEATED last night watching the Billboard Music Awards. During one of the breaks, right before the Nicki Minaj AND LiL Wayne performance, The announcer stated “And coming up, A performance by Rap Legends Nicki Minaj and LiL Wayne. I was so angered at what they said that I barely watched the rest of the show.  I tuned in Just in time to see the end of these so called “legends” performing Nicki’s latest single High School.  Now I’ll be the first to say, Nicki’s physical Assets are unbelievable! and maybe that’s the legendary part , but RAP LEGENDS?…I think not!

Lets check the facts, First off, Nicki stole her ENTIRE swag from LiL Kim. Before the So called Pink Barbie decided to display herself in this way, LiL kim did that over 15 years ag0. KiM paved the way for Minaj’s entire style and look.

Second…Nicki Has one platinum album , Does this make her a legend? Kim did three platinum albums and her first album was arguably a  Hip Hop Classic! When Kim did it the current state of rappers in the world were making hip hop History. Biggie, Tupac, DMX, were all making their mark in the game when Kim was doin it. Now maybe she had the Best ghost writer in the world (Biggie) But, she had to pull it off,and she did so in spades.

I respect Nicki’s Talent, but don’t get it twisted, if it weren’t for LiL Kim , Minaj could not exist in Hip hop on any level!

And don’t get me started on LiL Wayne….ok so he’s talented, He might have even put on some hot albums. Would anyone consider him a rap legend?….Did he make hip hop history? Did he put out a classic hip hop album?  (The Carter?) maybe? I’m sorry but I don’t see it. I don’t think Wayne has the potential to go platinum every time he drops and album. Take a look at his sales to date. His first album Platinum, Carter II and III Platinum. After his 10 albums to date, about half sold over a million.  I just don’t think when people look back at hip hop History Wayne could be considered a Legend. Not right now anyway.

I could easily make an argument for 50 cent being a hip hop legend, A CLASSIC ALBUM in get rich, and he changed the game forever with his mixtape swag! Everything in hip hop has changed because of what 50 did. What has wayne Done to make him a legend?…How has he changed the game? Hit the poll , Let me know what you think!
