Welcome back #DaRundown South Podcast. This week we are joined by Keith Nelson Jr. once again to break down some big-picture topics. 04:13 Nicki Minaj Missteps Darling Nicki, where are we today? Nicki Minaj has been the face of female Hip-Hop for the 10 years or so. Her new album, Queen, drops in the shadow of the recently minted Cardi B.
