It seems that most of these artists get a good 5-year run so she has at least until 2015. Although, things change so fast these days who knows.

He'd be right, except for the part where Starships wasn't ever said to be a hip-hop record. Ever.

Nicki Minaj might be a sellout, but that's something else entirely. I would rather be Nicki Minaj the Pop Star and sell out than be Nicki Minaj the Female Rapper and nobody buy my albums or take me serious. Let's be honest here, even if Nicki Minaj spat fire and was on a GOAT level, how many of you would take her serious? Would Peter Rosenberg take her serious? Nope. Don't even front.
if she spit fire why wouldn't someone take her serious?

Its an extremely pop record and yeah its a sellout move...but in 2012 given how hip-hop approaches and deals with crossover records..and considering its Nicki Minaj we're talking about, I dont see how this is a shock
The fact that it isn't a shock to most heads nowadays is the shock...Fif used to sh*t on Ja every day for his singing till he started singing..now when he sings and does club joints most heads will say yeah but the song bump though..Same with Wayne etc...The soundscape is f*cking lame and generic..cookie cutter bullsh*t over electro beats...I'm not saying everything should be murder murder murder k!ll k!ll k!ll and whatnot but the music is full of estrogen cause of these sell outs who are trying to keep up with the Joneses..

n*ggas dont know if they wanna be The Hansons or Wu-Tang these days

im callin it now, synchronized dance steps ala the temptations gonna make a full comeback via hip hop soon

i was cool with genre mixing or bending when it was Method man and Limp Bizkit, When it was Korn, or Jay-z and Rick Rubin, hell as recent as Linkin Park or as far back as Run DMC and Aerosmith

Some genres just complement each other but Hip Hop and babyface pop music is not one of those,
Never cared for Niki then and sure as hell dont care now. Sell out? sheeeeit you wanna see a true sell-out? well go back and listen to the first Black-eyed peas Album and then listen to all of their post fergie albums. You have to stand in awe of the 180 they pulled from their inception. I mean damn, Has Nikki Minaj ever been anything other than a low rent pop-princess GaGa since she's been mainstream, Between all that moronic enunciating of words and miming a malfunctioning robot, i find it pointless to make a big deal outta her moving towards records that sound like bargain Bin singles from budding Disney Channel child stars

After all even trash has a market

Word, the song isn't even being sent to Urban radio, its being sent to Pop and Rhythmic stations. Plus, Nicki has been saying she wants to crossover to Pop since before she had a deal.

What contract did Nicki sign that said "I'm going to do rap, and only rap music?". Who says she's not allowed to dab into other genres and increase her brand, fanbase, and fame?

On top of that, she was theater kid & a singer before she even began to rap. So is she a sell out for becoming a rapper? n*ggas are ignorant. Nicki is only dubbed a sell out when she doesn't make the kind of music THOSE people like or listen to.
