Nassau, Bahamas -- “Wow! Talent to the tenth power,” commented Nicki Minaj on Jamaal Rolle’s Instagram page. The Celebrity Artist recently painted Minaj’s portrait with Mac makeup which quickly went viral.
“Since Nicki Minaj and Mac currently collaborate, I rendered a portrait of her using Mac foundations, eye shadows, liners and lip sticks.” said Rolle.  “Mac offers a wide range of foundations and makeup that gives me more hues than my traditional pastels.  This new way of creating portraits is just crazy and fantastic at the same time, and I am having a lot of fun with it!” said Rolle.
After Rolle posted the artistic rendition of Minaj, the image was quickly shared in many large online publications like The Shade Room, BET, a­­nd Pop Sugar, garnering more than a million views in a just few days.
Minaj’s portrait by Rolle has created a sensation for the artist’s fans at home in The Bahamas. “Greatness from a small country!” wrote a follower on Instagram.
