Rather than attacking the organization that has all along made Minaj feel inadequate, she spends her department of energy build it up and passes her wrong right along. Is there a chic direction ? ” [ 89 ] Online hip hop publication HipHopDX criticised the album for a lack of depth and its race time : “ Nicki Minaj has excelled to the compass point where Onika Maraj has resorted to being an change ego when it comes to public appearances and the music.
