Nicki Beats Lil Wayne, Kanye At AMA’s

(AllHipHop News) Rapper Nicki Minaj was the big winner in the Hip-Hop category during last night’s American Music Awards.

The Queens, New York rapper bested both Lil Wayne and Kanye West in two different categories.

Nicki’s album Pink Friday was crowned Album of the Year, while the rapper was named Favorite Hip-Hop Artist.

Nicki was shocked when she accepted both of her awards during the AMA’s, where she also performed “Turn Me On” and “Super Bass,” with two speakers plugged into her curvaceous backside.

“I didn’t think I was going to win it,” Nicki told the crowd before offering some advice.

“Love yourself no matter what. There’s power in your peace,” the philosophizing rapper said.

Other performers during the AMA’s included Pitbull, will.I.am, Mary J. Blige, and others.

Taylor Swift and Adele were the big winner of the evening, taking home three AMA’s each, with Swift landing the coveted Artist of the Year award.

Other winners included Usher, Beyonce, Rihanna, Foo Fighters, Maroon 5, Bruno Mars, and Chris Brown.

Check out some images of Nicki performing and backstage at the AMA’s.

    This was basically a popularity contest. Right now Nicki Minaj has one of the biggest fan bases in rap. The crazy thing to me about her winning was that I don’t really consider “Pink Friday” a rap album, it seemed more pop to me.
