Nicki Minaj Strangely Attracted To Dinosaur Sweaters

Lately, two figures completely dominate the Rocks Off blog. One is Allyson Townsend, whose battle to bring pop music to the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community has her scheduled to make an appearance as Diane Sawyer's "Person of the Week" on ABC's World News Tonight.

The other towering figure is Trinidadian rap sensation Nicki Minaj. So when Rocks Off saw a new music video called "Dinosaur Sweater" that claimed to feature her, we couldn't click "play" fast enough.

Waiting for Nicki Minaj is something of a Rocks Off rite of passage, so we didn't mind meditating a bit while the video loaded. The artist was listed as Dudely Jones. The name failed to ring any bells. No matter; the music was starting.
