Nicki Minaj discusses hip-hop influence

Female rapper Nicki Minaj has come in for some slight criticism recently, with people claiming that she gives off this street persona but is really just a pop act. However, Nicki has now hit back at the criticism, claiming that there will always be hip-hop influences in her music.
Minaj explained to MTV News, "What can I say? I don't know what I gotta do anymore. I don't know what I can possibly do. What [have] I gotta do? Go and rob a bank?”
She added, "I'm still me, hip-hop culture is still in my heart. That can never leave me. I know I'm always gonna be street, because I can't pretend to be street. It's a lot of people walking around here pretending to be that, but I ain't gonna call nobody out right now."
Nicki Minaj recently spoke out against comparisons between her and Lady Gaga, claiming that they are two completely different artists. Nicki also revealed how her video for the single Beez in the Trap is dedicated to her stripper fans.
Do you think Nicki Minaj has sold out and gone more mainstream to gain bigger fans and better pay days?
