Nicki Minaj’s ‘Barbie Dreams’ Is Trending Because She Called Out All Hip-Hop’s Heavyweights
Nicki Minaj set the Internet on fire with the surprise release of her fourth album Queen, but one song, in particular, has everyone losing their mind.
Minaj ripped a page out of hip-hop history and put a female spin on Biggie’s classic Just Playing (Dreams) (that was also redone by Lil Kim) and the Barbz are going bananas.
“Dreams of f”cking one of these little rappers,” she spits over the classic beat. No one is off-limits as Nicki cruises through all of hip-hop’s heavyweights.
From 50 Cent to Young Thug with a sprinkle of Dave East in between, Nicki sends shots at them all with no fear.
“Meek still be in my DMs, I be having to duck him/ “I used to pray for times like this”/ Face a*s when I f*ck him,” she raps calling out her ex Meek Mill by name. She even referenced DJ Khaled’s refusing to participate in oral sex. “Had to cancel DJ Khaled, boy, we ain’t speaking/ Ain’t no fat nigga telling me what he ain’t eating.”
The jabs keep going. “I tried to fuck 50 for a powerful hour/ But all the n*gga wanna do is talk Power for hours.” Her Young Money label mate Drake was the recipient of some of her tongue and cheek bars as well. “Drake worth a hundred milli, always buying me shit/ But I don’t know if the pussy wet or if he’s crying and sh*t.”
Twitter is ablaze with fan reactions. Keep scrolling to see what everyone is saying about Nicki’s hot new track.
