    An epic 19-track collection that stands as her best and boldest recorded work to date.

    It’s a lot of fun, but not quite the instant classic for which Minaj seems to have been aiming.

    It may lack cohesion at certain points, but one thing is never in doubt: Minaj is still one of the best in her field.

    There are no deep layers to be uncovered on Queen. No methodical analysis responding to her critics for her reliance on sexual ploys. Nary a mention of any mental anguish the grave allegations her brother faces.

    When Minaj leans into her untouchable strengths as a rapper, things get really exciting and an album of tracks as strong as "LLC" or "Barbie Dreams" would be one for the books. As it stands, however, Queen is another chapter of Minaj's good but largely meandering and inconsistent full-length album output.

    It’s refreshingly spur-of-the-moment on an album that’s let down by constant overthinking and underestimating of her abilities. If Minaj wants to make a mission statement of an album, worthy of this title, she needs to figure out a mission statement for herself.

    Minaj is obviously capable of backing up all the posturing. ... But Queen also finds Minaj falling back on some frustratingly familiar shortcomings. The album loses its momentum whenever it aims for the pop charts.

    When you think some Iggy or Cardi **** can take her spot, she proves why and how to be the QUEEN.

I'll give you 10 minutes to name something by a female rapper this decade more harder and iconic than Barbie Dreams. GO! Expand

    Queen is definitely the best female rap album of the decade. It is not a boring album despite having 19 tracks. Nicki Minaj killing it.
