Before Ms. Nicki Minaj was one of the biggest hip hop superstars of the 2010s, she was spitting flames in the underground mixtape scene. She was the first lady of Young Money and self proclaimed “Black Barbie.” When anyone thinks of 2008 Nicki, 3 things come to mind : her iconic black bob, unforgettable pink lipstick, and her mixtape Sucka Free.
Sweetest Girl is one of my absolute favorites from this project and has a permanent spot in my most beloved throwbacks playlist. It has such a nice island vibe and all the sections of the track just flow together so perfectly. Of course, the highlight is Nicki’s raw verse full of truth, the kind that made her famous.
Don’t forget about this one!
