Nicki Minaj Debut Album Coming on Nov. 23?

Nicki Minaj’s highly anticipated debut album may be hitting shelves this fall. The Young Money femcee took to her Twitter account this afternoon and alluded to her forthcoming, untitled LP’s release date.

On a message posted about an hour ago, the Queens, NY native wrote, “Yes. It’s time. November 23rd.” The date, which comes just two days before Thanksgiving, also falls on one of the biggest shopping weeks in America (black Friday is three days later).

Despite the message on Twitter, reps for Nicki’s label home, Cash Money/Young Money, told that the date is not confirmed, as-of-yet.

Minaj recently scored the No. 1 spot on the Billboard’s Rap Charts with “Your Love,” making her the first solo female hip-hop artist in more than eight years to score a the top spot. —Elan Mancini

    November 23rd 2010???? That means March 2011. But question for anybody who’s actually gonna buy the album (?), is it actually gonna be rap and just some random noise like her last 2/3 songs?

    i hope its gets offcial and it comes out then cuz im ready for it especially since she sed on the abulm she was going to go back to the old way she rapped and let ppl no the real onicka

    The only thing that can happen between now and then is for people to forget this gimmicky rapper. Bad move, she should have released her trash the same day as Drake. They should have been on each other’s singles. When you don’t have talent you need to survive off of hype. Neither Drake nor any of these hyped up rappers will sell as much as Drake just did, which wasn’t too much. Plus I stopped listening to Drake’s shit after 2 listens.


      MAN i fuckin hate drake,he bought his way into hiphop/rap,he’s a damn actor!!! his album was like R&B..BUT he went gold the first week(500000) and he’s not too far from platnum,i’ll give him a week or two cuz his shit is still flyin off the shelves, i think the company is buying his shit,LOL

    • ms_spittuh

      Only a confused nigglett will say what you just said. What makes you think that some of us aren’t up and coming artist posting on this site? Because you certainly are talking to one of them. That bitch started on posting sites like everyone else, so just because you see this bitch on television honey that don’t mean she ain’t start off at the bottom. And face it – you’re nothing but a nappy headed black girl with no self identity, that’s why you support her. You want to be her. Be my guest bitch :)

    This move can be a good thing or bad thing! It can easily go either way. But I do know one thing…..Nicki has a hell of a lot of female fans that fucks with her hard!! FACT: Females out number us males by like 9 or 10 to 1!! You do the math…….Kind of like Eminems own race giving him major support to get him 750K wk 1 numbers!! I’m not saying she’ll do that, I’m just saying she will exceed all expectations!

    FOLLOW US………….

  • One900romello

    I guess people don’t follow numbers because Drake didnt go platinum in the first week and no he isn’t there yet last I checked he was 300,00 from platinum so in the long run Drake will go platinum. And the way album sales are going who cares if you go platinum in the first week….if I’m not mistaken neither did Jay-Z. Holla if I’m wrong.

    @SerG So I’m hating because I don’t care for music?

    No dumbass I just don’t care for her music. There is a difference between hating and preference. I’d never buy her album just as well I’d never bought a Vanilla Ice record, A classical music record, don’t own any country music, none of that shit. All because of my preference.

    If you’re buying her record because she raps, therefore it’s “hip hop”, then you should go ahead and buy every other shitty rappers album

    It’s the equivalent of shitting in the grass cause dogs do it too…

    Think for yaself bruh

  • Tre


    I’m not downloading her album either!

    It’s Outkast, not Outcast.

    If I die not hearing a Nicki Minaj record again, that is ok with me lol.

    Minaj Stans like you will unite and get her to gold. I’m sure of it

    • green

      for u not like somebody im really wondering why you came and left three post under her thing and was actually the first to comment on something you dont like & just cuz you dont like her dont mean she a shitty rapper cuz she can rap

  • gift

    I will say this, minaj is making noise for female mc’s and is giving them a voice again. Think about it, if this were three years ago, their would be no debate on female mcs. Now, we on this msg board talking bout the shit right now. Whether niggas is hatin, anticipatin, or masturbatin to this chick, niggas is talking bout her, and givin her life. I don’t totally dislike her style, cuz she does have some skills. Hell she even wrecked Luda on that MY CHICK BAD shit. Everybody is entitled to their own opinion, but niggas can’t front and say that Nicki is just whack, cuz that’s not the truth. real talk. I’m not gonna buy her album, but I will say shorty got some skills.

  • E-Man

    i’m going to but her album i know sometimes shes off and doesnt do things according to the standards of regular hip hop but i believe she does everything for a reason to tell you the truth massive attack was a tester to see how the world would react to her “creative” ways and she learned that people dont like that. she re did the WHOLE ALBUM IN A NEW WAY THAT SATISFIES HER OLD AND NEW FANS !I;M BUYING
