Nicki Minaj Wins Two 2012 TheDrop.FM Music Awards
All hail the Queen Barbz! Nicki Minaj grabbed two trophies in TheDrop.fm's Music Awards 2012. The Young Money star won for Best Female Rapper and Best Hip-Hop Song ('Beez in the Trap').
Minaj, who is currently judging contestants on 'American Idol,' beat out big-name contenders Azealia Banks, Lola Monroe and Iggy Azalea. The 24-year-old rapstress had a big year in 2012 with her second album 'Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded.' Despite critics panning it because of the LP's pop-oriented sound, she managed to earn a platinum plaque for her efforts.
One of the many non-pop-sounding tracks on the LP was 'Beez in the Trap,' which must have been a fan favorite because YOU voted for it. Minaj's infectious tune, which also featured 2 Chainz, won against songs from Nas ('Daughters'), Future ('Turn on the Lights'), and 2 Chainz, himself ('No Lie').
Congrats to Nicki, and to the fans who voted for her!! We can’t wait to hear what the Young Money rapper is going to bring in 2013!
