First Listen: Nicki Minaj's Pink Friday

11.11.2010

Only 11 days left until you can get your grimy little hands on the Nicki Minaj's debut album Pink Friday. But until then, you can hear snippets from some of the tracks above (thanks Perez!). If the cover art looks familiar -- it should. Nicki was so happy with photographer GL Wood's work on her October Out magazine cover shoot that she recruited him to shoot the photos for Pink Friday. GL Wood recently spoke about the inspiration for the shoot saying, "[Nicki] wanted to rip her arms off to really do the whole Barbie theme, like when little girls trash their dolls. She wanted to look like one of those broken Barbies." He added, "There’s people who are going to get it and not get it, but that's the point. There's few if any female artists now who are pushing the envelope. And that's far from a bad thing."
