In what seemed like a direct rebuttal to critics who saw her as a gimmick, Nicki dropped “Roman's Revenge.” Although she insisted her second verse wasn't being directed at Lil Kim, lines like, “Word? That bitch mad that I took the spot?” and “Got some niggas out in Brooklyn that’ll off your top” doesn't leave much room for interpretation. So for simultaneously silencing her critics, putting the Queen B in a headlock, and not letting Eminem kill her on her own shit, we gladly award Nicki a spot on this list.
