We can't think of any other rap musician in recent rap history who has had this level of hype and attention as a rookie without an official album out---except for Drake. So kind of like Drizzy's, MTV made this documentary chronicling Niki Minaj's ascendancy. The clip features never-before-seen footage of the rapper interacting with her fans, family, and friends. She also comments on the importance of her presence, how she plans to be a role model figure for up-and-coming female entertainers stating, "Why isn't there a female rapper turned mogul? I just want to be the first woman to do it." Barbie's going for that Jay-Z money. Watch the clip above and decide if she has what it takes to get it.
