Nicki Minaj’s new album “Queen” — which suddenly dropped Friday — takes royal aim at a roster of Top 10 hip-hop artists.
Her “Barbie Dreams” track already has social media buzzing about men that the Queens rapper calls out on that explicit song — which uses the same funky James Brown beat as Notorious B.I.G.’s “Just Playing (Dreams).” Minaj takes on Drake, 50 Cent, DJ Khaled, Young Thug and her ex, Meek Mill. Clearly, even those who have gotten intimate with her aren’t safe.
“Meek still be in my DMs, I be having to duck him,” she raps about Mill, shading the Philly MC who she split with early last year.
Minaj also alludes to having had sex with an in-his-feelings Drake: “Drake worth a hundred milli, always busy buying me s - - t/But I don’t know if the p - - - y wet or if he cryin’ and s - - t.”It’s clear that Minaj at least attempted to have relations with 50 Cent: “I tried to f - - k 50 for a powerful hour/But all that n - - - a wanna do is talk ‘Power’ for hours.”
Meanwhile, Minaj lets DJ Khaled have it over comments he made about not performing oral sex on women: “Had to cancel DJ Khaled/Boy, we ain’t speakin’/Ain’t no fat n - - - a tellin’ me what he ain’t eatin’.”
But the fellas aren’t the only ones who get bashed by Minaj on the 19-track, 66-minute “Queen”: The rapper also disses Cardi B, the artist who has emerged as the biggest competition for Minaj’s throne in the last year.
“I ain’t never had to strip to get the pole position,” Minaj raps on the menacing “Hard White,” in an obvious reference to former stripper Cardi B.
And on “Ganja Burns,” the atmospheric opening track, Minaj appears to address rumors that Cardi doesn’t write all of her own lyrics: “At least I can say I wrote every rap I spit.”
Elsewhere on “Queen” — the follow-up to 2014’s “The Pinkprint” — Minaj shows that she still reigns in the game, with guests like The Weeknd (“Thought I Knew You”), Eminem (“Majesty”), Lil Wayne (“Rich Sex”), Ariana Grande (“Bed”) and Future (“Sir”) all showing up to pay homage.
