Nicki Minaj targets a long list of rappers on ‘Barbie Dreams’, an explosive track taken from her new album ‘Queen’.
The song, which features on the record Minaj released a week early, hears Minaj slam nearly every rapper in the game. But, she has insisted, it’s “not a diss.”
Speaking on her new Apple Beats 1 “Queen Radio” show this week, Minaj said: “You guys know that’s not a diss, right. I love them. I said things about people who can take a joke and not be emotional about it.”
Minaj’s attacks include: “Drake worth a hundred milli, always buying me shit/But I don’t know if the pussy wet or if he cryin’ and shit”, “I tried to fuck 50 for a powerful hour, but all that n**** want to do is talk Power for hours” (50 Cent), and her ex-boyfriend Meek Mill (“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”).
Minaj read the reactions to the song after the album’s release on Friday (August 10), calling them “fucking hilarious” (via Rolling Stone). “Everyone is saying how disrespectful ‘Barbie Dreams’ is, and that’s why I fucking love it,” she added.
‘Queen’, Minaj’s fourth studio album, arrived after several date changes and a week before it’s planned release on August 17.
