[photogallerylink id=65638 align=left] This past Sunday the American Music Awards were held, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Nicki Minaj[/lastfm]. Was nominated for and won two big awards, but she beat out some heavyweights.
Nicki won for Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Artist and Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Album. It’s who she beat out that was a bit of a surprise. For Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Artist she beat [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Kanye West[/lastfm] and her YMCMB boss [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Lil Wayne[/lastfm]. For Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Album she also beat out the same two, but it was Kanye and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Jay Z[/lastfm]‘s Watch the Throne album. Congrats to Nicki!
