Perhaps it was American Idol that put her over the edge, but Nicki Minaj has promised that her third album, The Pink Print, will mark her return to hip-hop. “I’ve been getting back to that place where I was before I dropped my first album which is ‘kill, kill, kill, kill, kill, kill everything,'” Minaj said in an interview from earlier this year. “I agree that Nicki Minaj should focus on rap… now.”
“Even though you out here looking so ungrateful,” she raps, “I’m a keep it moving, be classy and graceful.”
Nicki Minaj claims she is making everything more real for her forthcoming album, from her make-up to her verses.
When Nicki Minaj sat down with MTV News to discuss her role in The Other Woman, she looked different; gone were the multi-colored wigs, eye-grabbing outfits and colorful makeup. But don’t call Minaj’s new look a makeover. According to her, “it’s just coming full circle.”
With her latest track–her third off her upcoming album, ‘The Pink Print’–she proves she’s a woman of her word.
This latest single from the upcoming Young Money compilation follows previously released tracks from Drake and Nicki Minaj.
She posted it to her Instagram account, revealing that the artwork would include a photo of civil rights leader Malcolm X taken for Ebony magazine in 1964. In the photo, X is holding a gun and peeking out the blinds of a window.
With her new video, Nicki is letting all the men out there know, they can look, but can’t touch.
Nicki Minaj has never been one to hide her body so when ESPN The Magazine decided to go a little crazy with the Photoshop for their latest cover, she decided to give them a piece of her mind.
The album is properly titled Young Money: Rise of an Empire, due out March 11 on Young Money/Cash Money, and will feature Wayne, Drake, Nicki Minaj and many noblemen and women.
