Senior editor of IAMHIPHOPMAG.COM, Warren Tate wonders if Nicki Minaj is impersonating another artist to keep herself relevant. "I just find it kind of weird, the sudden changes. I thought she was a barbie. You know bright colors, blond hair, flashy. Now it's black, with heavy eyeliner and to be really and totally honest that is not Nicki Minaj. It's like she is trying to be somebody or something that she is not. Have you ever seen a barbie that looks like Nicki's new look? I'm not convinced. I don't believe you!"
Hip Hop's favorite Barbie Nicki Minaj has been appearing a lot in the headlines as of late. First on December 30th she drops a freestyle to the group PTAF's song to Boss A** B*tch.
Then shortly after that, she drops another song with Young thug's "Danny Glover", and she put's a picture of Malcolm X on the cover of her new single "Lookin A** N*ggas", and received a lot of flack from a lot of critics. Nicki states, "the song is a conversation and not a direct diss to the estate of Malcolm X or his family."
The video was released right before Valentines day and every male in hip hop expressed their disdain. To add more fuel to the fire, hip hop website IAMHIPHOPMAG.COM'S editor-n-chief Hannah Langhorn, uncovers what appears to be Nicki Minaj impersonating another artist to keep herself relevant. While the magazine does not confirm, they dissect Nicki's lyrics in each of the 2 newly released songs, give a complete breakdown of what was said, the time in the song or video of what was said, and the strange resemblance of Nicki's new look similar to 22 year old MC ImYounik. Clearly Nicki is dissing someone on at least 2 of those songs said Langhorn. It looks like the magazine may have revealed who that person is.
Imyounik was discovered by former Shady recording artist Bobby Creekwater at the time he will still signed. Bobby put her on a record with STS and Obie Trice called PAUSE. ImYouNik landed an artist development deal to Indie powerhouse Major League Music Group out of Atlanta GA.
Since teaming up with the music group,ImYouNik has stayed busy and in fact recently came off a tour where she headlined with Young Money (YMCMB) rapper, T Rone as well as 2 Chainz’s artist, Cap 1 (Motown Records) from January 27-31, 2014. Imyounik is no stranger to lyricism. She dropped a video with industry vet Sha Stimuli called 5 Fingas Of Death, the remake to one of Big L's singles . Sha Stimuli clearly states in the video, "Imyounik is raps future, the girl that yall should see."
If you were to check out Imyounik’s Instagram page you would find the “new” signature wing-tipped eye make-up that Nicki has adopted, has always been worn by ImYouNik since making her musical debut back in 2009.
Furthermore, as of recently on ImYouNik’s Instagram she revealed plans to release a new music video that was set to drop Monday night, however, it was released on Tuesday morning. It appears that these recent speculations may in fact have some validity as the video reveals ImYouNik’s cover to Nicki Minaj’s remix of “Boss A** B**ch”.
ImYouNik’s “Boss A** Chick” offers what seems to be a response to the Young Money rapper but she never mentions her name and does so with nearly no profanity use at all, a true feat and testament to the remarkable talent of this rising artist.
