44 seconds of pure passion? It’s not Anaconda and it tends to focus on her front side, but this clip of rapper Nicki Minaj rehearsing for a high school drama reveals a young woman who is DETERMINED to make it. The teacher has to step in and tell a worked up, method-acting Minaj–as she shoves and hurls a phone at a fellow actress–hey “we gotta be careful.”
Turns out that teacher was right. People who want to get in Nicki Minaj’s way–even back when she was an adolescent named Onika–had better be careful. Is the seed of who we become in us all along?
