The truth is, you people are much better at doing the Instagram Photo Challenges than I am. Twice I’ve vowed to participate; twice I’ve failed. Woe is most assuredly me.
But since I know y’all are gearing up for May, I wanted to share the list of challenges with you. Shout out to FatMumSlim, whomever she is, for coming up with these truly creative challenges.

Yes, I failed last month’s challenge something terrible. But this month I’ve been doing much better. Below are the pics I’ve so far taken for the Instagram #AprilPhotoAMonth Photo Challenge. Since they’ve opened the flood gates and the whole goddamn world is on Instagram now, there’s really only one thing to do: LET’S GET IT!

It’s no secret that I adore Nicki Minaj. I think she’s super talented, and those who disagree are simply blinded by a baseless, unreasonable hatred for her. It’s one thing to not be a fan of her music; it’s another to outright deny Nicki’s talent.
In any case, the NY Times recently ran a piece written by Jon Caramanica that discussed Nicki’s place in hip-hop and pop culture, positing that she is the most influential female hip-hop artist of all time. It’s an assessment with which I’d agree.
Her sophomore album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, drops tomorrow. You better goddamn believe I’m copping it right away. The tracklisting to PF:RR is below.

Featuring an impressive roster of guest artists, including Stevie Wonder, Andre 3000, Rihanna, Rick Ross, The Weeknd, and labelmates Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj, and boasting production from Just Blaze, Boi-1da, and long-time collaborator Noah “40” Shebib for production, Take Care is Drake’s attempt at giving listeners the classic album they’d expected with his debut.

It’s been a loooooooong-ass time since I’ve done this, but here it is, once again, my most liked and reblogged Tumblrs for the past week. Hit ‘em up!
Not too long ago, Mala Reignz and Quest Kuriaki got together to spit that realness over the instrumental of Nicki Minaj‘s current hit. Mala and Quest’s version is a certified banger—just ask XXL—and now they’ve dropped a visual to go along with it. Check it out above.
