10 Baddest Moments In Nicki Minaj’s NSFW ‘Lookin’ Ass’ Video — In GIFs!

Nicki’s about to slay. Literally.

The Roman holiday is officially over! Late Wednesday night, Nicki Minaj dropped her brand-new video for “Lookin’ Ass N****” on WorldStarHipHop, and, uh… “Starships” it ain’t!

The sparse-yet-vicious track off of both Young Money’s Rise Of An Empire and Nicki’s own The Pink Print brings to mind the genre-bending MC’s mixtape days. (#IttyBittyPiggyFlashbacks) As much as we love her pop radio-friendly side, it’s SO GOOD to see Nicki Lewinsky/Nicki the Ninja/Nicki the Boss/Nicki the Harajuku Barbie back in action.

Thankfully, the NABIL-directed desert visuals — which we saw #iconic photos of on Tuesday — pack the power to match Nicki’s lyrical punch. I mean, it’d be pretty hard not to, what with Nicki double-fisting a couple of assault rifles and all.

Basically, just sit back, forget your strongly held beliefs on gun control, live for these GIFs, and watch this new era slay. Slay, era, slay!
