#1. Nicki Minaj
Why we've loved her in 2010: When we heard the words "And I just signed a chick named Nicki Minaj" come out of Wayne's mouth, we had no idea what he was talking about. However, Weezy's draft pick was as good as gold. From bodying rappers whose tracks she's featured on (um...Drake) to her quirky sense of style to our Hot Complex spread, Nicki embodies what Complex looks for in a female. The sexy rapstress has already ruled half of 2010, so wait, wait, fixate, and watch what she has planned for the rest of 2010.
