Nicki Minaj won handily by vote the fourth position of RapCaviar’s Mount Rushmore of 2010’s.
RapCaviar deemed without any vote that Drake, Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole as worthy for the first three slots. The debate had celebrities and athletes such as Lebron James even chiming in on whom they believed deserved the accolade of the fourth spot.

Damian Lillard believed Lebron’s choice was mistaken and that Kanye West is no. 4 in this discussion. It led to people creating reaction videos to the topic as it seemed to come down to Kanye West and Nicki Minaj.
Another person who took offense to Lebron’s claim was another rapper that has a tremendous followers know as “The Barbz”. Nicki Minaj took to social media stating, “Never thought I’d get the opportunity to give you the alley oop,” and continued “But you almost had it. It’s N I C K I…EMMMM I N A J!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

The fans have spoken after many took to social media to give their thoughts on Nicki Minaj being excluded from the discussion.
Nicki Minaj deserves to be on any rap Mount Rushmore or “Top List” of the 2010s. And her or her fans saying that doesn’t make it not true. People really have an issue with people just claiming what they deserve based on impact. Everyone needs to be “humble”.

Now the results are in from the poll and it seems Minaj was correct in her assertion that she was indeed the person who should be on that picture for representing the 2010’s.

As they should from the beginning, it took @NICKIMINAJ to insert herself for them to do the right thing, it sad honestly how Hip Hop is so misogynistic.
