Nicki Minaj Net Worth 2013 – 2014: $52 Million
Nicki Minaj’s real name is Onika Tanya Maraj, I bet you didn’t see that one coming, however, she’s better known by her stage name Nicki Minaj, which is actually one of the biggest names in the hip-hop industry at the moment, in fact, Minaj is the only female rapper who’s ever been ranked on The World’s 20 Highest Paid Hip Hop Artists list, also known as the Hip Hop Cash Kings list. Onika is so good at what she does, and makes so much money while being at it that she was ranked #4 on the 2013 Hip Hop Cash Kings list with estimated earnings of $29 million throughout the year. Her wealth comes mainly from touring, album sales, digital downloads, merchandising, endorsement contracts from big brand names such as Pepsi and Adidas for example, and a big juicy salary for her work on American Idol during the show’s twelfth season.
Nicki has not only succeeded financially, apart from being the first and only lady who’s ever made it to the Forbes Hip-Hop Cash Kings list, she was also the first female rapper included on MTV’s Annual Hottest MC list, and you have to believe me when I tell you that that was quite a feat. Now the reason why she’s so successful is because she has a truly unique singing style, she likes to play around with the beat by changing the tone of her voice every now and then, she also likes to use accents such as British Cockney which has made her very popular in the UK, and loves blasting off with her own distinctive and remarkable fast paced flow that she is most known for.
Even though her style sometimes resembles Lil Kim’s rapping technique, which by the way caused a big feud between them wasn’t that necessary at all, at least it wasn’t for me, because I truly believe that Minaj has her own thing going on, I also think she’s a far better rapper than Lil Kim, and if she ever tried to emulate her style in order to become a better rapper, well, then all I can say is that she did a damn god job, because she wasn’t only able to sing similarly to her, but she also surpassed her in every possible way, both as an artist and as an entrepreneur.
Nicki has had an outstanding career, she has sold more copies than any other female rapper to date, her debut studio album “Pink Friday” peaked at number one on the US Billboard 200 chart and was certified platinum by the RIAA, her single “Super Bass” was certified platinum 8 times and it became one of the all-time best selling singles in the USA, her second studio album “Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded” peaked at #1 on the Billboard 200 charts as well, and it also became one of the best selling albums in 2012.
But, how much is Nicki Minaj really worth? Well, according to several online media outlets and magazines she currently has an estimated net worth of $45 million, however, after making our own calculations and taking into account the most recent information about her career, salary, and earnings, we have come to the conclusion that she might be a little bit richer than what most people think, or say. In fact, we believe that Onika Maraj has a total fortune of $52 million dollars approximately.
