REVIEW: Nicki Minaj – ‘The Pinkprint’

Artist: Nicki Minaj
Album: The Pinkprint
Genre: Hip-Hop
Label: Young Money

Whenever new material from Nicki Minaj arrives online people are quick to ask whether the pop star’s delivery falls under the category of ‘radio’ or ‘mixtape’ Minaj. The former is typically viewed a hook-heavy club offering, while the latter tends to refer to tracks where Minaj drops all pop sensibility in preference of her hip-hop roots. The Pinkprint is a perfect combination of both, though I would argue that it offers the least radio ready collection of tracks Nicki has shared with fans to date. That’s not a complaint, …

Hear Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé on “Feelin’ Myself”

Earlier this year, Beyoncé brought Nicki Minaj onboard for an intense remix of “Flawless” in the way that the quick spitter can make possible. Now, Minaj has shared a brand new single featuring Queen B called “Feelin’ Myself” off her upcoming studio album, The Pinkprint, out December 16 via Young Money, and it gets a little grittier.

Produced by Hit-Boy, “Feelin’ Myself” is a glitchy beat that saunters in low tones, remaining relatively dark throughout until Beyonce’s bright vocals lighten things up. There’s no beef here. Instead, the two divas take it slow, letting their lines speak for themselves …

Rae Sremmurd, Nicki Minaj, & Young Thug Drop “Throw Sum Mo”

The two biggest acts of 2014 have joined forces with the queen of hip-hop to deliver a new hard-hitting track that further cements Rae Sremmurd‘s place in pop culture.

Serving as the third single from the duo’s upcoming debut album, SremmLife, “Throw Some Mo” is a crazy single that features appearances from Nicki Minaj and Young Thug. It’s not the club banger you may be expecting, but it does boast a high energy beat and lyrics relating to fat asses, cash, partying, and generally living the good life. You can stream the track below:…

Rae Sremmurd Streams “No Flex Zone” Remix Featuring Pusha T and Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj Releases “Anaconda” Video, Puts Miley To Shame

Move over Ms. Cyrus, there is another pop queen who wants a little time in the controversy spotlight.

Nicki Minaj has never been one to shy away from her sexuality, and it she made it clear she was holding no punches when she revealed the cover art to her latest single, “Anaconda,” a few weeks back. The song’s debut made that even more evident, with talk of sexual exploits, past lovers, and plenty of ass love. It was everything you expected, yet somehow more.

Juicy J Shares “Low” Featuring Nicki Minaj, Lil Bibby, and Young Thug

Juicy J has released a number of throwaway digital singles this year, but this post does not contain one of them. What we have here is the very first confirmed single off Juicy J’s upcoming studio album, and it’s one of the most star-studded tracks in recent memory.

“Low,” which was produced by Dr. Luke and Cirkut, founds its way online early this morning. The beat is rather minimalistic, but thanks to a slew of major guest appearances the song feels packed to the gills with radio-ready sounds waiting to be discovered. It’s a little odd to see Lil Bibby …
