Nicki Minaj began her career in 2004 singing background vocals and hooks for underground rappers in New York City. She was discovered on MySpace by Dirty Money CEO Fendi, who signed her to the label in 2004. After appearing on "The Carter Edition" of Young Money's The Come Up DVD series, Minaj was contacted by Lil Wayne, who has a great single called :"The Knockout" that i love! which lead to her being dropped by Dirty Money. The two played ping-pong with her on a number of mixtape tracks. In April 2007, she released her first mixtape, Playtime Is Over, posing as a Barbie doll on the cover which that crazy ass bitch mariah carey used for her video with "Minaj" "Up Out My Face" The mixtape was well received. only cause i spread mad word hehe 

Before Minaj released any solo material besides mixtapes, she was featured on 18 mother-fuckin album tracks and 11 god dammed remix's singles with high-profile acts including "Up Out My Face (Remix)" with Mariah Carey, "My Chick Bad" with Ludacris, "Lil' Freak" with Usher, she steals the show on Christina Aguilera's "Woohoo" and Sean Kingston's "Letting Go (Dutty Love)" is not the best song, but its fun because of Nicki. Then, in January 2010, another mixtape leaked virally, titled Barbie World. Minaj has not supported the mixtape and has stated that it should not be regarded as a true release. I have every damn single by minaj, and i love every damned track this girl puts out, its always the highlight of the track.
Minaj released her first single "Massive Attack" on April 13, My B-Day! woot woot! im not a huge fan of this track actually, The song features Sean Garrett, who produced the song along with Alex Da Kid. A music video for the single was filmed on March 16 in the desert near Lancaster, California with director Hype Williams (Aaliyah's Rock the Boat). The music video for the single premiered on BET's 106 & Park on March 31 with a cameo appearance by model Amber Rose. The single wasn't successful, however, as it only reached #22 on the US Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles chart and #65 on the  chart. The song is a buzz single, however, and Thank the lord Jesus Christ, will not be included on her debut album.
Minaj then released "Your Love" (one of my favorites so far) as the first official single from her debut album, after the leaked version started receiving heavy airplay on the radio because of its inclusion on her Barbie World mixtape. The single went on to become Minaj's most successful single so far, peaking at #14 on the Billboard Hot 100, #7 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, as well as topping the Rap Songs chart. Minaj has become the first female artist to top the chart unaccompanied since 2002. something quite noteworthy because woman rap artist are always assisted by a bigger or more successful artist A music video for the single was filmed by Lil X during the 4th of July weekend and was released on July 21, 2010 . The second single from the album, "Right Through Me", will be released near the album's release date. She appeared on the remix of the M.I.A. single "Teqkilla" in July 2010.
Minaj announced via Twitter (I follow her!!!!)  that her debut album, Pink Friday, will be released on November 23, 2010, stating "Yes. It's time. November 23rd".
