Before all the fame and magazine covers, Nicki Minaj was high school student and aspiring actress Onika Maraj. A clip of young Maraj getting all dramatic at the Fiorello LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts in Queens has surfaced via the British TV show You Saw Them Here First.
Yikes. Nicki goes so hard in the first part of the clip she almost injures her co-star with a prop. Later, she additions for a group of casting directors. She probably didn't get the part, since she spent her pre-fame years working at Red Lobster.
What do you think about a considerably less-enhanced Minaj's acting chops?
