M.I.A. responds to Nicki Minaj namecheck on new freestyle

The ‘Pinkprint’ rapper gave a shoutout to the British artist

MIA has responded to Nicki Minaj after the rapper name-checked her on a freestyle.

Minaj’s new song ‘The Pinkprint Freestyle’ pays homage to M.I.A. by interpolating sections of her hit single ‘Paper Planes’.

She raps: “I fly like paper, I get high like planes, If you catch me at the border I got visas in my name” and later shouts out the British artist directly, “M.I.A., M.I.A., I make bitches go M.I.A”.

Following the track’s release, M.I.A. sent Minaj a message of gratitude on Twitter.

Minaj responded back:

M.I.A.’s fifth album ‘AIM’ is out this Friday (September 9). The record will feature a collaboration with Zayn, which M.I.A. recently admitted she had second thoughts about in an interview with Annie Mac.
