    OK now is the time to reveal it was me and Cassie that funded this release.
    Such a bad investment.

    Pfft. Cassie can't even afford a full head of hair.

  4. Its such a shame because the new material is tons better than the original album.

    On the topic of rap vs pop Nicki, I much prefer rap, I can listen to cheap run of the mill pop by other people but her rap songs are usually pretty amazing...why can't she see this?

    I think its a choice of sales or reputation... which is she gunna choose? Sales of course, idiot.

    "Super Bass" really fucked her over as much as it helped her, didn't it? It's caused such an identity crisis for her that she's spent the majority of this year throwing as much shit at opposite walls and seeing what sticks.
  6. Boom, headshot.
  7. The Re-Up is still a pleasant surprise and mostly a joy for me to listen to. I stand by my initial review.

    I'm Legit is twerktastic. Up In Flames is one of her best tracks. The Boys is quirky and sexy. Etc...

    It sounds more like a mixtape than a real album (including some phoned-in verses), but on the whole it's really enjoyable. And much better than the headache-inducing Reloaded.

    I'm terrified about what she'll choose to release next.
  8. I'm sure if Diddy buys Cassie a new pair of knee-pads for Christmas she will earn her hair back in no time at all.

    Super Bass was the double edged sword for Nicki. It was her biggest success and everything she does will be held up to it.

    Romantic Reloaded: Pink Valentine Friday
    with sexy 80s ballad covers.
  10. Isn't that her verse on Monster?
  11. I love the Re-Up and I hope Va va Voom becomes a hit. I don't get all the hate she gets, but then again I'm one of the few who actually enjoys both pop and rap Nicki.

    I love her shitty Redone tracks and will always be here for some booty claps whether it is in I'm Legit or Pound the Alarm.
  12. I think some people just can't handle the pressure of superstardom. She was extremely exciting as an up and comer spitting some of the best verses on her features but since Massive Attack flopped and Your Love was a success, she has spent her career in a no mans land between pop and rap with no direction or identity, doing neither pop or rap justice. Since the inevitable floppage has started, she has blamed everyone from Walmart to radio programmers. I think the choice is simple. Either be a bad pop star and go the LMFAO route or stick with your guns, put out the great rap records you know you can and gain back credibility and the rap audience.

    Seconded - i enjoy both sides and I usually hate that kind of generic pop. She makes it work somehow.
  14. Maybe she can do a two-disc album for both her pop and urban fanbases, like Beyonce did with I Am... Sasha Fierce.
  15. Surely I Am... would be the urban side and Nekci Menij would be the pop one?

    She'll be fine, Va Va Voom is a hit without any help, her song with Justinia is a smash, she's starting Idol, she writes new stuff all the time...

    Wasn't that exactly what Roman Reloaded was meant to be? No fucking thanks.

    I never knew Va Va Voom was meant to be the lead single. So fucking wrong it wasn't. Yeah the video is shit but it's not like Starships was any better.

  18. I was strictly talking pop, but as you mentioned it, the Monster verse will always be what Nicki's new rhymes are compared too.
  19. I really think she should give up the goose on this whole rap credibility bollocks alongside her cutesy pop image, it's becoming increasingly clear that the urban community are distancing themselves from her. If they were here for her, the Re-Up would be selling far better.

    Let's just make the next album entirely pop/dance. Go for the huge chart hits.

    Then, on an entirely separate franchise, release an urban mixtapey affair. Don't make the hood listen to Starships, don't make a load of little girls listen to Come on a Cone. Spend two entirely separate brackets of time and promotion on two different markets. Mixing the two has been not at all successful.
  20. Va Va Voom is also DEAD at US Top 40 Radio as of today.

    Lord, she really needs to take a time out and figure out how to save her career with album 3.
