Rumor has it that on the first Thanksgiving, Myles Standish took to the Plymouth Plantation stage and dropped sweet rhymes and fat beats. Rumor also has it that he and his friends stole a lot of land and killed a lot of Native Americans, but we'll talk about that later. Anyway, the musical tradition continues! You can catch rapper Nicki Minaj at NYC's Hammerstein Ballroom this Thanksgiving, November 25th. Tickets are on sale now. Skip the pumpkin pie (no, bring it ... Read More

The NY-based multi-talented musician shows off her lyrical sensitivity and D.I.Y. skills with this homemade video of her song, "For the Best".
