Through the years, the rapper has been accused of undergoing plastic surgery for her nose and butt. But before the rumors of her getting butt implants started swirling, the 34-year-old (real name: Onika Tanya Maraj) was just an unknown female rapper from NYC trying to make a name for herself. So, to answer your questions...
When it comes to her backside, Nicki has been under scrutiny by her peers for years, including fellow female rapper Remy Ma who said Nicki's ex Meek Mill told her about her butt implants. “I saw Meek at All-Star,” she rapped on her diss track "Shether." “He told me your ass dropped / He couldn’t f--k you for three months because your a-- dropped."
However, Nicki retaliated by accusing the Love & Hip Hop star of having surgery of her own! "Sheneneh, you a fraud committin' perjury/ I got before and after pictures of your surgery," Nicki rapped for "No Fraud" before writing, "#StopSurgeryShamingB4IPostThem" on Instagram.

You can see for yourself in the gallery below that Nicki's nose appears to look different in her first major rap music video for “Dirty Money” back in 2007. Nicki denies any plastic surgery and blames it all on the magic of makeup! Nicki revealed in an interview with Extra to never having plastic surgery done … on her face. "When people see my makeup, they think all types of crazy things," she told Extra. "No, it's makeup. They'll see contouring and think you had surgery on your nose. I've never had surgery on my face."
