(Nicki Minaj on ’Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded’)
Earlier this month, we were treated to “Roman in Moscow,” the first single from Nicki Minaj’s sophomore album Pink Friday: Reloaded, and just a couple of weeks later her latest single “Stupid H—” has surfaced. On the new track Nicki taps into her off-the-wall flows that first captivated hip-hop fans, and while bragging she hints that she might perform at the 2012 Super Bowl and throws a shot that seems to be directed at Lil Kim.
The Young Money rapper spits one particular line—“Put ya cape on, you a super h–/2012, I’m at the Super Bowl”—hinting that she might join Madonna as a performer at the annual event. There has been speculation that Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. could both appear alongside Madonna at Super Bowl XLIV, since both rappers are featured on her upcoming album.
Super Bowl news aside, Nicki’s second single of the month taps into her multiple personalities and employs her off-the-wall flow. She spits verses in different pitches, slowing down and speeding up her bars and stretching out some syllables like she did on the remix of Big Sean’s single “Dance (A$$).”
The track ends with the declaration “I am the Female Weezy,” and after one listen, it’s easy to understand why. Nicki handles the song’s chorus herself, repeating the title of the track in her quirky voice. For her final verse, she spits a few lines directed at an unnamed enemy (speculation has already pointed to rival Lil’ Kim) who she says should have befriended her instead.
Nicki’s sophomore album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, is scheduled for release on Valentine’s Day 2012.
