Nicki Minaj doesn’t need any help standing next to Forbes Hip-Hop Cash Kings, because she’s a cash queen right along with them. 

Being the only female on Forbes Hip-Hop Cash Kings Of 2011, Nicki Minaj is definitely making a name for herself.

Solidifying her spot in the rap game, Nicki Minaj needs her own throne as one of the highest paid female rappers ever!

Nicki rounded out the top 20 rappers on the list, clocking in at number 15.

Nicki brought home a whopping $6.5 million in earnings. Tying with hip-hop producer Swizz Beatz, Nicki beat out Rick Ross, 50 Cent, B.o.B. and T-Pain, who all earned $5 to $6 million.

We know Nicki’s used to being the only girl, but we wonder how it feels to be reigning as the current queen in hip-hop. 

What does this mean for Nicki Minaj?

Well for starters, Nicki is definitely here to stay. With her new acting role in Ice Age 4: Continental Drift and her endorsement deal with MAC cosmetics, Nicki will be quite the business queen. 

Some people may not agree with her Barbie-inspired messages she sends to young girls, but Nicki is paving the way for all women to make a name for themselves in a room full of men. 

Big ups to Nicki!
