See How Nicki Minaj Transformed Over The Years, Astonishing!

Onika Tanya Maraj, commonly known as Nicki Minaj is not just a typical female rapper you know just because she went "Super Bass-ing", or flew around the world through Starships. She got through a lot of hardships, and she's proven so much of her talents. She was born in Trinidad and Tobago on December 8, 1982, and grew up in South Jamaica, Queens, New York.  

Her journey in the music scene began in 2004 after she joined the group, Full Force, under the quartet Hoodstars.Three years later, she felt about being single in this feat, so she focused on posting her own music on her myspace account, and relayed them to those people in the music world. More events happened to her, which we'll later conclude as a perfect transformation as time goes by.
