Is Nicki Minaj a Sped Up Jay-Z?


I watched the Super Bowl half-time show yesterday.  I was underwhelmed by yet more lip syncing by an artist I actually liked when I was ten.  Flanking her for part of the show was Nicki Minaj, who grimaces too much for the camera, and M.I.A. who flipped us all the bird.  We deserved it.


I was reading earlier today someone's theory that Nicki Minaj is actually a sped up Jay-Z.  I'd link to the source, but I can't seem to find it now.  I did find, however, this slowed down version of Nicki Minaj's Super Bass.

And, if you're still interested, there's this sped up version of  Kanye West and Jay-Z's Niggas in Paris.

I think Nicki Minaj slowed down does sound a little like Jay-Z, but I don't think Jay-Z sped up sounds like Nicki Minaj.  Either way, if you're going to throw a rapper in the mix, I'll take Kanye West or Eminem, please.
