Nicki Minaj's bawdy roasting session "Barbie Dreams" falls somewhere between neck suckle and jugular bite.
It's safe to say that Nicki Minaj is on her "How To Rob" tip. Taking to an old-school, New York City boom-bap Biggie classic, Minaj slides through with narry a care in the world. "RIP to B.I.G," she prefaces, the first of many names to come. It doesn't take long for the comedy to start, as Nicki takes a page out of 50 Cent's book, lining up some of the game's prominent males and absolutely clowning them. From former collaborators to ex-boyfriends, Nicki comes through with enough name-dropping to make The Game proud.
Anybody can get it, and it feels like nobody is spared from Nicki's clowning session. 50 Cent, Quavo, Drake, Meek Mill, Lil Uzi Vert, Young Thug, Young M.A., Desiigner, Odell Beckham, DJ Khaled, YG, Tekashi, Eminem, and more. While the album remains in its infancy, it's safe to say that "Barbie Dreams" will emerge as an early highlight. For good reason. It may very well be the sharpest we've heard Nicki in a minute, delivering scathing wit with the confidence and swagger befitting of a Queen.
Behold some the most memorable lines from "Barbie Dreams":
"Man, I ain't got no type, like Jimmy and Swae Lee
But if he can't fuck three times a night, peace"
I tried to fuck 50 for a powerful hour
All the n***a wanna do is talk Power for hours
Karrueche & Quavo
Somebody go and make sure Karrueche okay though
I heard she think I'm tryna give the coochie to Quavo
Drake worth a hundred milli, always buying me shit
But I don't know if the pussy wet or if he's crying and shit
Meek still be in my DMs, I be having to dump him
"I used to pray for times like this," face ass when I fuck him
Man, Uzi is my baby, he ain't takin' an L
But he took it literally when I said "go to hell"
Used to fuck with Young Thug, I ain't addressing this shit
I caught him in my dressing rooms stealing dresses and shit
I remember when I used to have a crush on Special Ed
Shoutout Desiigner, 'cause he made it out of special ed
On the real, I should make these n****s rap for the pussy
Young M.A., Lady Luck, get the strap for this pussy, uh
And I would've had that Odell Beckham banging the cake
'Til I saw him hopping out of cars dancing to Drake
I been a five-star bitch, man, word to Gotti
I'ma do that n***a Future dirty, word to Scottie
Had to cancel DJ Khaled, boy, we ain't speaking
Ain't no fat n***a telling me what he ain't eating
YG & The Game
YG & The Game with the hammer yelling "gang, gang"
This isn't what I meant when I said a gang bang
Tekashi want to menage, I said Tre-way
Curved him and went the Kim and Kanye way
Em, cop the Barbie Dreamhouse and you can play the part
I ain't tryna bust it open in the trailer park
