Nicki Minaj has broken her lengthy silence with a new track posted on her SoundCloud called “The Pinkprint Freestyle”.
The track, which utilises Young M.A’s “OOOUUU” beat, shows that Minaj has picked up where she left off since the release of her album The Pinkprint two years ago. Nicki’s boss-like aura is highlighted in her tone and bars, with punch-lines about Harambe the gorilla and even comparing herself to Jay Z with the line, “It’s the female Jay”. She raps, “I’m a brand according to what retail say/ Yeah, my tours be selling out on pre-sale day/ plus I got the title ‘Queen,’ press replay.”
Minaj recently performed alongside Ariana Grande at the MTV VMAs for Grande’s single “Side To Side”, with a corroborating video which has exceeded 30 million views in less than a week.
