How much is Nicki Minaj worth? Nicki’s net worth is estimated at $14 million, and from May 2010 to May 2011, Minaj made a reported $6.5 million. That was enough to land her at No. 15 on Forbes’ Hip-Hop Cash Kings list. The Pink Friday rapper is the first female to grace that list.
Nicki was the only lady on the Forbes inventory, and she had the honor of out-earning Rick Ross, 50 Cent, and Pitbull—each of whom made $6 million. Minaj also bested T-Pain and B.o.B., who closed out the list with $5 million each.

Might Nicki be adding to that $14 million net worth? It seems like a safe bet. In March 2012, Forbes reported that Minaj had signed a seven-figure endorsement deal with Pepsi. Minaj is also linked to Mattel—the toymaker made a one-of-a-kind Barbie in her likeness—MAC’s Viva Glam makeup, Onch Movement jewelry, and OPI nail polish.
Nicki sells records, too. Her 2010 debut, Pink Friday, went platinum, and the 2012 follow-up, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, spawned the smash “Starships.” Even if Hot 97 DJ Peter Rosenberg doesn’t dig it—he called it “wack” in June 2012, leading Nicki to pull out of the station’s Summer Jam concert—the single was a hit around the world, earning platinum sales in the U.S. “Starships were meant to fly,” Minaj sings on that tune, and as she climbs higher into the pop stratosphere, her bank balances promises to rise just as fast.
