The Twitter user @omartalksrap states that the rapper is able to outclass 90% of the current rappers and should be compared to all the rappers out there. Not limiting the people to keep the comparison between female rappers only. The people replied to Omar’s tweet with a piece of their mind too.


The American rappers’ Sims and Rapsody also appeared to get entangled among the rankings.


She has also been appreciated for her rapping abilities when collaborating with other artists like Kanye West, Jay Z, Wayne, and even Eminem. Although a verdict cannot be passed on who is a better rapper, it seems the public is quite impressed with Nicki Minaj’s abilities. Becoming the first and only female rapper to cross the 26 billion stream mark on Spotify is a pretty big deal.

Holding this record in the male rappers is Drake which has been holding the king seat of Spotify for quite a while. With over 62 billion streams for his music, Drake is way ahead of all the people in the game. Along with Drake, lies Eminem with over 31 billion streams on Spotify. There appears a difference of over 5 billion streams between the singer of “Side-to-side” and the creator of “Rap God“. It is now only a game of wait-and-watch as to the highest highs this popular rapper will achieve in the future.
