Five weeks after the release of Nicki Minaj’s Solo Album ‘Pink Friday’ has been certified Platinum by the RIAA.  After all the beefs and drama, Nicki’s music speaks for itself!  I’m sure that she is an inspiration to upcoming Female Rappers trying to make a name for themselves!  It has been reported that Nicki is the first Artist from New York to be Certified Platinum since Lloyd Banks.  Additionally, Eminem’s ‘Recovery’ and Drake’s ‘Thank Me Later’ are the only other Rap Albums released in 2010 that went Platinum, so Nicki in good company.
