28 Rolling Stone Crowns Nicki Minaj The Queen Of Hip Hop, But Are They Premature? Who Really Deserves That Title?

[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Nicki Minaj[/lastfm] is the toast of hip hop, and now even the pop world as Rolling Stone has given her the title of the “Queen Of Hip Hop” in it’s upcoming issue

Nicki deserves all the credit she’s getting right now. Her debut album ‘Pink Friday’ is expected to sell over 400,000 units its first week out. She’s gotten co-signs from almost every major rapper out there from [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Joe Budden[/lastfm] to [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Kanye West[/lastfm]. But does she deserve the title of “queen” after only one album?.

Let’s look at some other female rappers who should also be considered for that title as well.

After taking a look at the careers of Foxy Brown, Eve, Missy Elliot, Lil Kim and Lauryn Hill, it would seem Nicki Minaj has some stiff competition for the title of “Queen Of Hip Hop”

Which one of these ladies would you give that title to?
