Watch Nicki Minaj Throw a Phone During High School Play in This Vintage Clip

Pin It

Nicki Minaj didn't just become a total badass when she began her rap career...she was born this way, as evidenced in this clip from her LaGuardia High School of Music & Art drama days.

A fresh-faced Nicki, rocking braids and jeans, was acting in a school play and brought the intensity and some serious sass during a heated scene with a classmate.

At one point, she hurls a phone at her castmate to make her point, nearly hitting her in the process with the flying object and prompting a warning from her teacher to be more careful and calm down.

"Did I hit you with the phone?" Nicki asks afterwards. "It looked like she did," her teacher adds.

The 32-year-old rapper scored her first big acting job when she was cast in The Other Woman in 2013.

What do you think of her retro acting skills?
