Watch Nicki Minaj act in her high school acting class

Onika Tanya Maraj better known by her stage name Nicki Minaj , is an American rapper, singer, and songwriter. Born in Saint James, Trinidad and Tobago and raised in Jamaica, Queens, New York, Minaj received public notice after releasing three mixtapes between 2007–2009. She signed a recording contract with Young Money Entertainment in 2009.

Minaj’s debut studio album, Pink Friday, peaked at number one on the U.S.Billboard 200 and spawned the top-three single “Super Bass”. During that time, Minaj became the first female solo artist to have seven singles simultaneously charting on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.

But before becoming a billboard topping actress, Nicki Minaj grew up in a troubled home. Her father was addicted to alcohol and other drugs and attempted to kill her mother by setting their house on fire. She would later go to LaGuardia High School which focuses on music and the visual and performing arts. She wanted to become an actress, and was cast in an off Broadway play In Case You Forget in 2001. When Minaj’s acting career failed to take off, at age 19 she worked as a waitress at Red Lobster in the Bronx.
