Nicki Minaj doesn't have to move over: there can be room for more than one female MC. This Harlem-bred rapper was amped up by Diplo on her first single "Seventeen" when she was only 17-years old. She kept herself on the map most recently with bouncy December single "212. She shows her crossover chops on Scissor Sister's funky "Shady Love," released just his week, and cross-Atlantic appeal considering the love she's gotten from the BBC and NME. Who will sign this party-starter?
