These Are the 20 Best Nicki Minaj Videos

Nicki Minaj is a G.O.A.T. Hands down. She’s one of hip-hop’s all time greatest lyricists, one of the genre’s biggest hit-makers and one of the most successful rappers of all time. Her influence is undeniable. She’s basically in a league of her own. 

Her music videos are a big part of why millions and millions of people adore her. Throughout the course of her reign as a queen of rap, she has been one of the most consistent when it comes to delivering dope visuals. Even the videos she’s delivered for her not-so-great songs are unforgettable, in a good way (Think “Massive Attack”). Her video game is so on point that at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards, she’ll become one of only 34 artists to receive MTV’s Video Vanguard Award.

According to MTV, the gold-plated trophy is awarded to “artists for their outstanding contributions and profound impact on music video and popular culture.” The Video Vanguard Award is only given to artists with a legendary lineup of music videos. Prior to Minaj, iconic acts such as Missy Elliott, Rihanna, Kanye West, Beyoncé, Justin Timberlake, LL Cool J, Michael Jackson (who the award is now named after) and others have been recipients of the coveted accolade. 

Whether you’re a fan of Nicki Minaj or not, there’s no denying that many of her visuals fall within must-see territory. If we’re talking about fire Nicki music videos, there’s a lot to choose from.
