Nicki Minaj Brings the Melodrama in Recently Uncovered High School Acting Footage

She throws a phone at a fellow student, too

Years before her time atop the charts as rap’s reigning queen, Nicki Minaj was — like many of us — a high school student in search of her big break. In recently uncovered footage from the Queens MC’s time at LaGuardia High School in New York City, the teen storms around and throws a phone at a fellow student, all as part of an acting reel. You can watch the brief clip above in the hopes that more dramatic footage from the Pinkprint rapper’s early days surfaces sometime soon.
