Unlike last weeks’ bubble gum and torch-fuel powered production “The Boys” production, the Nicki Minaj‘s new video for “Come On A Cone” is all business. “Come On A Cone” comes from the rap-heavy front-end of Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, and finds Nicki at her most unhinged and wonderfully weird. And, save for the bit at the end where she sings “d*** in my face, I’ll put my d*** in your face” real pretty and pop star like, the entire song is spent with Nicki rapping like the phenomenal rap star she is when she wants to be. Accordingly, the video that accompanies the song seems to serve two purposes: 1. To promote Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded: The Re-Up, which is out on November 19th; and, 2. To once again remind Hot 97’s DJ Rosenberg and all the rest of her detractors that she can sing songs “Starship” and still hang with hip hop, too.
In order to do so, Nicki made sure that everyone who is everyone (who is not named Lil Wayne or Drake, for some reason) in hip hop turned out to join her in the otherwise low-budget looking new video. Let’s have a look at all the hip hop heavyweights who will stand behind Nicki, even at her most unconventional…
