Nicki Minaj takes fans back to her earlier days in the newly-released “Come on a Cone” video. With a real street vibe to the clip, Queen Barb takes fans on a day-in-the-life journey, which includes cameos from Tyga, Wacka Flocka, Birdman and even Tyga’s girlfriend Blac Chyna.
Directed by Grizz Lee, the video includes footage from the BET Awards in which Jay-Z, Beyonce, Swizz Beatz, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian all appear. She also shows love to her Barbs in the clip, including a few recent interactions with her die-hards.
The entire video has a very low budget feel, and it seems as though Nicki is trying to convey that even though she’s made it to the top, she hasn’t forgotten her roots. “Come on a Cone”appeared on Pink Friday Roman Reloaded and will appear again on the re-issue Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded: The Reup, out November 19.
