Nicki Minaj Old Freestyle Clip, Before Pink Wigs & Alter Egos [Video]

An unreleased video of Nicki Minaj freestyling in the streets of New York is creating an internet firestorm today.

The clip features a regular looking Minaj spitting rhymes long before she became an overnight hip hop/pop star. Don’t expect to see rainbow coloured wigs or alter ego Roman Zolanski rapping. This video features the original lyrical Nicki Minaj who was still hungry to get her shine in the rap game.

These days Nicki Minaj is a global phenomenon with huge influence in hip-hop, pop and fashion.

Watch Nicki rapping over Terror Squad’s “Yeah Yeah Yeah,” then busts out an a capella freestyle.

  13. What the hell Happened to this Nicki! Please bring her back!

  14. Damn, its crazy what money power and surgery can do to a normal person, she was way better when she spit game like this.

  15. I think you are pretty girl old or new.Just do what you feel is right, And everything will fall in place and my GOD bless you

  16. I like this Nicki way better, but I guess when you are hungery for stardom selling out is not a problem!

  17. She is a imitation it will come out one day

    I think she was a boy look at her neck on the first picture why it look like that adams apple been fixed. She was flat though before her surgeries they had a clip a while back with her in the club and that was not the same body like she got today.It is something about her that is undercover.

  18. She should have stayed like this. I like the oringnal dirty raw Queens Nicki Minaji. I think she looks real cute here, she just needs to be herself. Not nickigaga or nickililkim just be yourself. Stop with all the madness pinky, just sayin. Be YOU!!!!

  19. Ummnotimpressed

    I agree that she looks so much better here and all this dress up crap is so wickety whack. But I come
    From an era of lyrically talented female rappets like Mone Love, Queen Latifah, Salt and Pepper and Spinderella, MC Lyte, Patraa and Missy Elliot. Thid chick aint about nothing. She couldn’t rap then and she certainly cannot rap now. No talent whatsoever. I don’t get what people are listening to. Do people really take the time to listen to the nonsense she spits? Really?!!!

  33. Here she sounds just like that dike Nicki that was calling Remy Ma talking about she ate the box. hmmmm

  34. told people the girl had skills…… it’s just that she uses her power for evil(commercial)…. and seeing her currently I’m mad that she said “look at the state of hip hop” back then.
