Who is the world’s most self-regarding rapper? John Lemon has compiled an analysis of self-mentions by rappers to find out which of them wants it to be about ‘me-me-me’. The number one act is Nicki Minaj.

1st: Nicki Minaj (11.5% of all words)

Three albums. 17,665 words. 2026 explicit references to herself

A self-reference every 8.78 words

42.87 self-references per song

An average of 371.55 words per song

On “Right By My Side” she referenced herself every 3.5 words, or 28% of the song

Her most word-laden song is “All Things Go”, at 718 words, with 67 self-references

It;s just her, herself and more of her.
