Buzz60’s Sam Berman rings in the new year with the most anticipated albums of 2018.
Nicki Minaj is not here to play with her male rap counterparts, and she’s coming for each of them.
Minaj dropped her album “Queen” a week early, and she had bar after bar of insults in “Barbie Dreams” for everyone from Drake and Meek Mill to DJ Khaled and Young Thug. As she says on the song’s hook: “I’m just playing, but I’m saying.”
Pusha T might have called Drake out for hiding a child, but Nicki said his wealth doesn’t impress her AND he’s always in tears: “Drake worth a hundred milli always buying me (expletive) / But I don’t know if the (expletive) wet or if he crying and (expletive).”
For her ex, Meek Mill, Nicki didn’t hold back, even using a line from his song “Dreams and Nightmares”: “Meek still be in my DMs, I be trying to duck him / ‘I used to pray for times like this’ / Face (expletive) when I (expletive) him.”
Nicki saves one of her most lethal bars for DJ Khaled, whose 2014 comments about not performing oral sex on his wife had Twitter in a frenzy when the interview resurfaced them in May: “Had to cancel DJ Khaled / Boy we ain’t speaking / Ain’t no fat (expletive) telling me what he ain’t eating.”
She also has some feelings about Young Thug, who has admitted that 90 percent of his closet is filled with women’s clothing and who modeled women’s clothing in a Calvin Klein ad: “Used to (expletive) with Young Thug, I ain’t addressing this (expletive) / I caught him in my dressing rooms stealing dresses and (expletive).”
She calls out Young Thug’s lisp in the next bars: “I used to give this (expletive) with a lisp tests and (expletive) / How you want the puthy? Can’t say your s’s and (expletive).”
50 Cent, who has an executive producer credit on STARZ series “Power,” was not immune from Nicki’s wrath: “I tried to (expletive) 50 (Cent) for a powerful hour / But all that (expletive) wanna do is talk ‘Power’ for hours.”
Twitter went wild for the song, with most applauding her in some way, either for the messiness of the song or for her no-cares-given attitude.
One user says that the song is “so messy.”
Another person said that “Nicki snapped on Barbie Dreams like a substitute teacher that’s fed up with students trying to convince her they ain’t have no homework.”
Someone else tweeted that “no song has ever made” them cry laughing like “Barbie Dreams.”
Others on Twitter tweeted their own reactions to the song as well as their imagined reactions of everyone Nicki insults.
