For her latest single off The Pink Print, Nicki Minaj gets introspective in speaking on the difficulties juggling love and family life while being one of the biggest stars in Hip-Hop. If you’re not in the mood for a pop ballad, you’ll probably want to skip this one.





We should have know that Drake dressed up as the Pope on the cover was a bad sign. “Only” is Nicki Minaj’s latest single with the theme being Nicki’s YMCMB comrades lusting after her. The flows are good.Ā But considering the lineup, most were expecting straight heat. Instead, the playful rauchiness comes off sophomoric and Brown’s talents are reduced to a bland hook.

Back to the drawing board.


Nicki Minaj’s latest freestyle has her tackling the street anthem “No Flex Zone” from Mississippi brothers Rae Sremmurd. While it unsurprisingly doesn’t take much for Nicki to outrap the youngsters, it’s humorous to note she does with more bass in her voice than the original. No word yet on when her Pinkprint project will be dropping.

Game gets to be one of the luckiest emcees in Hip-Hop for a few minutes as he plays Nicki Minaj’s love interest for her “Pills N Potions” visuals. The special effects are a little cheesy at certain points, but overall they fit with the pop rhythms. You can purchase “Pills N Potions” HERE.


You didn’t really believe that spielĀ Nicki was giving about The Pink PrintĀ being a complete return to her Hip-Hop roots, did you? The Young Money queen has made legions of fans over the last few years appealing to pop trends, so it would make little sense for her to alienateĀ that segment of her diverseĀ fanbase. The hook and production tips it about 60/40 in favorĀ of her pop leanings, so it’ll be interesting to see if this single still finds a consistentĀ homeĀ on traditional Hip-Hop stations.

“Pills N Potions” will be available later today on iTunes.


Soulja Boy has the easiest job in the world on this one. Despite of the highly repititve refrain from SB, Nicki Minaj gives another example of her high-powered flow by destroying her umpteenth trap beat. Some guys caught feelings off her “Looking Ass Niggas” track, so for this one Nicki mostly takes aim at underachieving females. With news that an official single is coming within two weeks, this will probably serve as one of, if not her last, street single before the media push for The Pink Print goes into overdrive.


Straight out of the 90s Busta Rhymes video playbook, the Young Money camp drops a surreal video “Senile.” The track is included on their compilation Rise of an Empire.
