Before she became her Minajesty and one of the fiercest female rappers today, Nicki Minaj was Onika -- a high school student with aspirations of becoming an actress. And lucky for us, a throwback clip of her early acting skills has surfaced online while attending New York City's LaGuardia High School of Music & Art where she was in the drama program there. 

The clip shows Minaj, rocking cornrows, a red t-shirt and jeans. The heated scene, ultimately escalates to Nicki throwing a prop phone at her classmate. The scene gets interrupted when Nicki's teacher warns her to be careful -- looks like she didn't know her own strength! She even asks her classmate, "Did I hit you with the phone?"
