Nicki Minaj’s third studio album The Pinkprint is finally out and we’re celebrating by taking a look at 15 of her best verses through the years. From collaborating with Beyoncé with a remix of “Flawless” to showing up Rich Homie Quan, Lil Wayne, and Meek Mill in “My N-gga,” Nicki has proven that she is the Rap Queen (at least of 2014). Read on for a list of Barbie’s game-killing verses!
Nicki Minaj celebrated her 32nd birthday last week in style with a gift from DJ Pauly D. According to The Gossip Table, these two have been getting close. Find out the details in the clip below.
1. “Flawless” Remix by Beyoncé feat. Nicki Minaj
How does Queen B top a song like “Flawless?” She invites the Queen of Rap to do a remix with her.
“Mayday mayday, earth to bitches / Slap these hoes on they ass like we birthing bitches, uh / The queen of rap, slayin’ with queen Bey / If you ain’t on the team, you playin’ for team D / ’Cause we A-listers, we paid sisters”
2. “Out Of My Mind” by B.o.B. feat. Nicki Minaj
Nicki may be completely out of her mind — and she definitely is in this music video — but her theatrical style is what makes her rap verses so good.
“You gon’ be the priest, and I’m a be the preacher / You can be the he-man, I’m a be the she-ra / You can be the Grim, I’m a be the Reaper / We can pretend that airplanes in the night skies / Are like shooting stars? / Well, you gon’ really need a wish right now / When my goons come through and start shooting stars”
3. “Monster” by Kanye West feat. Jay Z, Nicki Minaj, Bon Iver, Rick Ross
Rap may be a man’s game, but Nicki’s verse in “Monster” is a game changer.
“Pull up in the monster / Automobile gangster / With a bad bitch that came from Sri Lanka / Yeah I’m in that Tonka, color of Willy Wonka / You could be the King but watch the Queen conquer / OK first things first I’ll eat your brains / Then I’mma start rocking gold teeth and fangs / ’Cause that’s what a motherfucking monster do”
4. “I’m Out” by Ciara feat. Nicki Minaj
CiCi and Nicki pair up in this song for the ladies.
“Take him to the bank then I hit him with the cash drops / I do it big, I hit him with the CAPS LOCK / I’m gonna ball, I hit him with the mascot / No, I never been there, but I like to Bangkok”
5. “Stupid Hoe” by Nicki Minaj
“I get it cracking like a bad back / Bitch talking she the queen, when she looking like a lab rat / I’m Angelina, you Jennifer / Come on bitch, you see where Brad at”
6. “My N-gga” Remix by YG feat. Lil Wayne, Rich Homie Quan, Meek Mill, Nicki Minaj
Even when she’s the only woman in the room, Nicki knows how to make her presence known.
“You n-ggas ain’t got no joints / Like a injured Chris Paul, you ain’t got no point / I just come through with a couple bossy bitches / They get money, too, they some “don’t cross me” bitches / Flossy bitches, Sergio Rossi, bitches / And if we at the game then it’s floor seats, bitches!”
7. “Lil Freak” by Usher feat. Nicki Minaj
Who better to play the role of Usher’s “little freak” than the woman who rocks “gold teeth and fangs?”
“I really like your kitty kat / And if you let me touch her / I know you’re not a bluffer / I’ll take you to go see Usher / I keep a couple hoes / Like Santa I keep a vixen / Got that Dasher, Dancer, Prancer / Dixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, BLITZEN!”
8. “Beez In The Trap” by Nicki Minaj feat. 2 Chainz
Nicki claims her place as the baddest “beez” in the game with this track.
“Rip it off, no jokin’ / Like your name Hulk Hogan / N-ggas move weight in the South, but live in Hoboken / Bitch, I spit that crack / Like I’m in that trap / So if you need a hit, then I’m with that bat”
9. “Bottoms Up” by Trey Songz feat. Nicki Minaj
Who can forget Nicki asking Trey to buy her a bottle of rosé?
“I’m wit a bad bitch he’s wit his friends / I don’t say “Hi”, I say “Keys to the Benz” / Keys to the Benz? Keys to the Benz! / Motherfuckin’ right yeah weed to the 10 / If a bitch try to get cute ima stomp her / Throw alotta money at her then yell “Fuck her” / Fuck her fuck her then yell “Fuck her” / Then I’m go and get my Louisville Slugger”
10. “Boss Ass Bitch” Remix by PTAF feat. Nicki Minaj
In this remix, Nicki gives you one more name to call her by — and another reason to bow down.
“Yo, I employ these n-ggas / They be grown men, but I little-boy these n-ggas / Want the cookie, so I gotta Chips Ahoy these n-ggas / But I never iPhone, Android these n-ggas”
11. “Dance (A$$) Remix” by Big Sean feat. Nicki Minaj
Who better to remix a song called “Dance (A$$)” than curvaceous Nicki Minaj?
“Only time you on the net is when you Google my ass / Ya fuckin’ little whores, fu-fuckin’ up my decors / Couldn’t get Michael Kors if you was fuckin’ Michael Kors / B-B-Big Sean, b-boy, how big is you? / Gimme all yo’ money and gimme all yo’ residuals / Then slap it on my ass, ass, ass…”
12. “Super Bass” by Nicki Minaj
This song was so catchy, even Sophia Grace Brownlee and Rosie McClelland had to sing along to it.
“And he ill, he real, he might got a deal / He pop bottles and he got the right kind of bill / He cold, he dope, he might sell coke / He always in the air, but he never fly coach”
13. “I Luv Dem Strippers” by 2 Chainz feat. Nicki Minaj
Nicki is the conductor of a “hundred thousand dollar engine” in this collaboration with 2 Chainz.
“Fifty black trucks gone follow when I pull up / This shit hit you in the chin like a pull up / My door so cocky, my door so stuck up / Oh, hop up out the space car / Bitches stay pressed, I call them a space bar / Man I wish a bitch would, hundred-thousand dollar engine / I wish a bitch could”
14. “Come On A Cone” by Nicki Minaj
Who’s on Nicki’s roster? Anna Wintour, for starters.
“Ain’t a metaphor punchline, I’m really sitting with Anna / Front row at Oscar de la Renta posture / Ain’t a bitch that could do it, not even my impostor / Put these bitches on lockout, where the fuck is your roster?”
15. “HOV Lane” by Nicki Minaj
Nicki is in her own lane, and it’s the fast track to superstar status.
“I travel more than you walkin’ with a basketball / I’m out in Spain, runnin’ game to the matador / I’m in my own lane, you ain’t in my category / You like a Rav 4, I’m like the Aventador”
