As many of my most beloved Muusers know, pop music isn’t the only sound spinning on my iPod.

In my spare time, I happen to be an enthusiast of all things female gangsta rap–be it of the quality variety (Lil’ Kim) or for the coveted LOLZ (Khia).

As of late, I’ve grown intrigued by a new talent to the scene–Nicki Minaj. Though she hasn’t released anything officially yet, she’s been featured on a smattering of mix-tapes, a few guest spots on some rapper’s remixes, and a verse on this God awful Lil’ Wayne song, “BedRock.”

I must say, while I can’t figure out if it’s out of true love or simply the chuckles, I am totally feeling her right now…even if Lil’ Kim isn’t.

I’mma bad bitch, I’mma I’mma bad bitch….
