PHOTOS: The Best Of Nicki Minaj!

You've come a long way, baby! Nicki Minaj straight killed the mixtape scene back in 2007 with the release of her much buzzed about "Playtime Is Over." But the Harajuku Barbie from southside Jamaica, Queens, has really come up. Girl's been nominated for award after award, won a good percentage of them, toured the world and performed live on stage with Madonna at the 2012 Super Bowl halftime show. Her parents have got to be way proud.

We're super proud too, hence our repeated listening of her Pink Friday re-release, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. (Um, anyone wanna grab drinks and talk about "Beez In The Trap" for a few hours?) To celebrate our girl Nicki, take a look back through some of our favorite moments. We even go all the way back to a mystical time long ago when the girl had black hair (2009), and my personal favorite, orange (seen here accepting her Best Female Hip Hop Artist award at the 2010 BET Awards).

Check out more Nicki Minaj photos after the jump, and collect 'em all in our BEST OF NICKI MINAJ PHOTO GALLERY!

I don't know about y'all, but I'm pretty sure Nicki Minaj is THE LAST PERSON ON THE PLANET whom I'd want to receive the ol' side-eye from. We definitely feel bad for whoever shaded Nicki, seen here at New York Fashion Week in 2012.

Ah, yes! The pink chicken wing necklace heard 'round the world! What better place to sport a fried chicken item around your neck than the iHeartRadio festival in 2011. Makes total sense, right?

+ Peep the rest of our favorite Nicki Minaj photos over at our BEST OF NICKI MINAJ PHOTO GALLERY, and try not to be too jealous of how she always manages to find the perfect shade of pink lipstick.
