Nicki Minaj’s eagerly anticipated album hits shelves on Nov. 26, but that’s not the only reason the pint-sized rapper‘s name will soon be on everyone’s lips. Minaj has teamed up with M.A.C to create a limited-edition lipstick shade named after her debut album, Pink Friday. A self-proclaimed fan of the brand, Minaj says she was so honored she teared up when meeting the M.A.C team for the first time. “They had no idea how much this meant to me,” she told PEOPLE. “I am super excited about the lipstick because I never imagined that M.A.C would even recognize me this early on in my career. For them to name the lipstick after my album makes me feel like I can do anything in the world because they are such an important brand and such an important staple in our culture.” The collaboration marks a longtime love affair between the hip hop diva and the cosmetic line. “I wore M.A.C to my high school prom,” she says. “For them to throw themselves behind a little rapper makes me love the company even more.” M.A.C’s Pink Friday will be available exclusively online, for four Fridays only, beginning Nov. 26 and running through Dec. 17. –Samantha McIntyre

Wow, some of you people are married too. That’s sad. Anyways you people need to listen to some old eminem or even his new stuff and then listen to Nicki Minaj. BIG DIFFERENCE IN LYRICS, METAPHORS, ETC. Lil Wayne sucks. He is just weak punch-lines and metaphors. If someone sounded like Lil Wayne on a track, how in the world does that mean their good? That’s not being original. Nicki is a KNOWN swagger-jacker, and she doesn’t even write all of her wack raps. If Nicki wants and real beef, step to Em and we’ll see where she stands in this game. She is a sell-out and will do anything to get famous. That includes selling her CD on amazon.com for .99 cents on Black Friday. She is basically taking Lil Kim’s style and combining it with Lil Wayne’s raps, she’s not original. For anyone who is asinine enough to think shes one of the best rapper, I feel sorry that your English comprehension skills and vocabulary isn’t advanced enough to decipher strong lyrics from the weak.

Judging by VAL’s comment saying that her lyrics “are the bomb” he doesnt really know much when it comes to hip-hop.. this is only commercial rap that floods the radio with garbage. Get real, this is nothing close to real hip hop..
