On day three of The BoomBox’s countdown to Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, entertainment journalist Kelley L. Carter explains how Nicki Minaj became the music industry’s top female rapper and has now transcended hip-hop.

An Emmy award-wining writer, Carter has worked for a variety of entertainment outlets such as USA Today, BBC, MTV News, Essence, Billboard and the Chicago Tribune. She can be seen routinely weighing in on the hottest topics via HLN and her expertise landed her on several other networks including E!, Fox News and the TV Guide Channel.

Carter covers the growth of Minaj’s career often and likens her cult-following to that of Lady Gaga, only with a hip-hop twist.

“The great thing about Nicki’s career is that in a lot of ways, she’s redefined what a female MC is. Truthfully, she’s helping to create a new genre of music. Much of what she’s doing doesn’t feel fair to just keep it in the box of hip-hop. Her music capabilities are only rivaled by her fashion sense, which is very avant-garde — love it or hate it.

She’s put herself in great company too — she’s easily hip-hop’s answer to Lady Gaga. We now wait with baited breathe for her video premieres, to hear new singles and hear what type of wordplay she’s going to twist and turn up and put in a verse.”
