Check Out Nicki Minaj's High School Acting Chops

How do musicians reach super-stardom? Hard work, dedication and dreaming big, of course! Before Nicki Minaj wowed us with "Super Bass" and took back the booty with "Anaconda," the rapper was a teenager, hoping to one day become a superstar. 

Last weekend on the British television program "You Saw Them Here First," a clip of Minaj rehearsing a dramatic scene at the famed Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School in New York City surfaced. Who knew the rapper had done any work acting?

In the video, an impassioned Nicki Minaj screams, "Call that judge right now and tell him I can have my baby back! Tell him!" while throwing a stage phone at a fellow student. The entire scene is very impressive, with Minaj proving that she truly knows how to make a scene.

Watch the clip above and check out our complete guide to the rapper's latest full-length, The Pinkprint.
