“You can be the King but watch the Queen conquer.”
Nicki Minaj on “Monster”
Nicki Minaj has reached a new milestone in her career. The “Moment For Life” rapper is now the wealthiest female rapper of all time her net worth surpassed the $100 million mark. The historical feat broke on the Young Money’s Twitter account with the hashtag, #QueenTingz within the caption.
Minaj first broke onto the scene in 2009 with Lil Wayne’s Young Money, after years grinding between New York and Atlanta. After 11 years in the game, she has revolutionized and raised the standards for female rappers in the game. Throughout her career, Nicki Minaj has released 4 albums. Each of her four studio albums has been certified platinum or more, including her most recent release, Queen.
Despite a retirement announcement, the “Yikes” songstress dropped a new single earlier this year.
Aside from her music catalog, Minaj has ventured into a number of business endeavors and endorsements. Back in 2012, she reportedly earned $12 million from judging Season 12 of American Idol. She is one of the co-owners of Tidal, along with Jay-Z, Beyonce, Kanye West, Alicia Keys and more. Her collaboration with MAC, Pepsi, Adidas and most recently Fendi have all contributed to the net worth of Young Money’s first lady.
