Sooo I just finished watching Nicki Minaj's documentary on MTV, an when it was all said and done I had a whole different respect and outlook for this woman.She talks about coming from Trinidad at a young age and being raised by her grandmother, to her father being on drugs, & the love and appreciation she has for her career as a female rapper.
Alot of people had doubts about Nicki as far as her writing skills and who really writes for her...the footage taken of her on the documentary cleared that up, given a close and raw look at her in the studio recording "Romans Revenge".
She sheds tears of joy and hurt through out the interview and gets real personal.Not afraid of being real and who she is as a female she speaks upon the difference between men and women saying "if a woman is assertive shes a bitch, but when a man is the same way he's looked at as a boss".
I think this documentary was good for her...to actually give not only her fans but the haters as well a look and to see she's human too..that she has feelings and throughout it all she humbles herself and will never forget where she came from and how it got her success now now.

Here's an excerpt from "Decoded:"
"When I first started working on this book, I told my editor that I wanted it to do three important things. The first was to make the case that hip-hop lyrics-not just my lyrics, but those of every great MC-are poetry if you look at them closely enough. The second was I wanted the book to tell a little bit of the story of my generation, to show the context for the choices we made at a violent and chaotic crossroads in recent history. And the third piece was that I wanted the book to show how hip-hop created a way to take a very specific and powerful experience and turn it into a story that everyone in the world could feel and relate to."
