Female rappers have come along way since the days of MC Lyte, Salt N’ Pepa and Queen Latifah. Nevertheless, you would be pretty hard pressed to argue that any female rapper has been more successful than Nicki Minaj. Face it, Nicki owns the 21 st century.

I doesn’t matter if she’s laying law on her own tracks or coming to show n’ prove on someone else’s song, it’s pretty clear any song is gold when Nicki is holding the mic. I guess, her bodacious body and absolutely sex appeal doesn’t hurt either. To prove our point, we’ve listed 10 of Nicki’s hottest gifs with 10 of her hottest rap lyrics. You tell us if we’re wrong:
