It’s official, many of the most successful female rappers of all time aren’t very tall. To that effect, Nikki Minaj measures only 5’2”. After serving us multiple bops like, “Superbass”, “Starships”, and “Bang Bang”, it’s no surprise that she’s the most followed rapper on Instagram. Her unique style also earned her spots as a judge on the 12th season of American Idol and as a guest judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race. In 2020, Nikki released musical collaborations with Megan Trainor and Doja Cat.
