Remember when Kanye West's "Monster" first hit the radar and everybody was amazed at up-and-coming hip-hop artist Nicki Minaj's rap skills? The diva's flow was so impressive that she became one of the biggest stars on the planet, especially with her hit "Superbass". Her latest record, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, The Re-Up was definitely a decent hip-hop compilation, but Nicki has been known to be extremely, well, POP these days. Which is why she's decided to go back to her rap roots on her next record.

Sitting down with Hot 97's Peter Rosenberg, Nicki had this to say about her new music: "I am not your typical rapper. I'm choosing to get back to my essence and just feed the core hip-hop fans. Rapping helps me stay on my grind. I'm very competitive when it comes to wordplay, my writing, my flow." What do you think about Nicki's news about her next album? Vote in our poll below:
