A British TV show called “You Saw Them Here First,” released this footage of a young Nicki Minaj before she was famous. The video gives us a rare glimpse at Minaj’s face and body before the fame. It’s painfully obvious that the rapper has had a little work done, and by “a little,” we mean, from top to bottom, literally.

Minaj was caught on video while rehearsing for a play at the posh Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School in New York City.

The roughly minute-long footage shows Minaj while she was rehearsing a scene hurling a telephone to the ground just a few inches from a classmate.
