In an emotionally draining clip, Nicki Minaj revealed, "I remember when my mother would let my father be violent with her. And she always brings up this story as I was a little girl I would stand in front of my mother and go like this." (she then stretched her arms out to either side as if to block her father from getting to her mom).

She continued, tearing up, "And I vowed....that's why I'm like...maybe some people would describe me as abrasive or bitchy or whatever because I vowed from that age no man would ever abuse me, call me out by my name or treat me like that. And then all of the sudden, that was my life. Everything I said I would never...."

And then the clip cuts off and another clip plays, wherein she reveals,

"Who was I gonna inspire when I had nothing in me to give? I let one human being make me so low that I didn't even remember who I was. I was scared to get in the studio like, I didn't believe in myself."

In a 2010 interview, she had revealed that her dad was a violent drug addict who once, under the influence, crossed all his limits when he tried to burn down their home with her mom trapped inside. 

Well, the videos suggest all that brashness and toughness in her persona stems from when she, as a young innocent girl watched her dad hit her mom and her, which led her to take a vow to never let that happen, ever again.
