Nicki Minaj is feeling sensitive about her place in the game.
Why wouldn't she? Her last album, Queen, was a sales disappointment compared to her previous output.
And last night her upstart rival Cardi B did what Nicki hasn't been able to: Win Best Rap Album at the Grammy.
But at least Nicki has this going for: According to the RIAA, she's the second best selling emcee this decade.
The list goes Drake (130 million), Nicki (100.5 million), Lil Wayne (100 million), Kendrick Lamar (95 million) and J. Cole (79 million.)
Nicki suggested Drake, Wayne, Kendrick, and Cole would never by disrespected as she has been lately.
" I never see the men on this list being disrespected. I’ll continue to keep my integrity & push my pen. It’s a promise I made to myself in ‘07 when I was selling my tapes out my trunk," Nicki typed.
Are you surprised by these figures or nah?
