Nicki Minaj Says Drake “Single-Handedly Changed Music Forever”


Nicki Minaj is congratulating Drake on his achievements after the former labelmates rekindle their longtime friendship.

The relationship between Drake and Nicki Minaj started out inseparable, but along the way, the two had multiple falling outs. The Young Money artists may have never lost respect and love for each other over the years, but they certainly lost touch a few times. Back in 2015, when Drake and Nicki’s then-boyfriend Meek Mill were beefing, Nicki was forced into an uncomfortable position where she had to choose to be in Switzerland.

The Pinkprint rapper was vocal about how upset the feud made her and how badly she wanted it to end, especially since she was often in the middle of it. “They’re men, grown-ass men. It’s between them,” she told the New York Times in 2015. “It doesn’t make me feel good. You don’t ever want to choose sides between people you love. It’s ridiculous. I just want it to be over.” While the beef that spawned unforgettable diss tracks like “Back To Back” put a strain on Nicki and Drake’s relationship for quite some time, they later reconciled.

In 2017 while he was on stage at the Billboard Music Awards, Drake told Nicki Minaj how happy he was that they made up and said he couldn’t see it any other way. That was the year the powerful Young Money trio reunited on Nicki’s track “No Frauds” when she was beefing with Remy Ma. Nicki has spoken out before about how Drake is “always mad at [her] for something,” as it seems to be the dynamic between them. That statement may have prepared some fans for the next time they seemed to become estranged after a hate campaign that was perpetuated against Nicki Minaj saw Drake remain tight-lipped for years and never once defended his Young Money day one.

In December 2018, Drake and Nicki unfollowed each other on Instagram, which sparked rumors that they weren’t friends – again. This followed Drizzy going on his own campaign to make up with people he previously had beef with, which happened to include Minaj’s ex, Meek Mill. He ended up collaborating with Meek on the track “Going Bad” for the Philadelphia rapper’s Championships album in 2018. The following year, they released a music video for the song, and Nicki remixed it, calling out “old boy” and her “brother” for trying to end her.

Alas, Nicki and Drake did eventually reconcile once again, and fans only hope it’s for good this time. Nicki announced her intentions to retire from music in September 2019, but she re-emerged in 2020, earning two No. 1s on the Billboard Hot 100 chart that year in close succession. She soon went into hibernation again after giving birth to her first son, who she calls “Papa Bear.” When Nicki resurfaced with a surprise drop earlier this month, she took to Instagram Live to announce to fans and was joined by none other than Drake.

The two expressed a mutual love and respect for each other, and Nicki lauded Drake for being the G.O.A.T. and says he single-handedly got her out of her writer’s block. Drizzy also sent Nicki the track that has become the biggest off of the Beam Me Up Scotty re-release, “Seeing Green,” which features Drake himself and Lil Wayne. Drake said it didn’t feel right with Nicki not being on the song and that it’s more epic that way. “It’s just your world, nobody does this sh*t better than you,” Drake told Nicki. “When you’re gone I’m not gonna lie we really miss you and we really miss your presence, we miss the bars and we miss the excitement that you bring.”

Drake was honored with the Artist of the Decade Award at the Billboard Music Awards this year, and Nicki was quick to congratulate him on Instagram on the day of the show. “Single handedly changed music & the music business forever. Congratulations @champagnepapi,” she wrote on her Instagram Story.

Drake also took home the Billboard Award for Top Streaming Artist pushing his total number of trophies over fifty. Nicki says he is the greatest to ever do it and looks up to him not just as an artist but as a human being, who she often says is really smart.

One thing that Drake and Nicki have proved is that they will always fix their relationship no matter what goes down between them. When they say they love and support each other, they mean that. While they’ve had a rocky past at times, their future has never looked brighter.

Skillibeng Earns 1st Billboard Hot 100 Song With Nicki Minaj “Crocodile Teeth (Remix)”


Skillibeng gets his first Billboard Hot 100 song.

The dancehall deejay earned himself a Billboard Hot 100 hit with his Nicki Minaj assisted “Crocodile Teeth (Remix)“. The song was released on May 13 as part of Nicki’s “Beam Me Up Scotty” mixtape, now out on all streaming services.

The song debuted at number 100 on Monday, May 24, making this Skillibeng’s first US Billboard entry. “Crocodile Teeth (Remix)” has since cracked 2.5 million streams on YouTube and the same for Spotify, while getting 1.3 million streams on Apple Music. The original single already has over 20 million views on YouTube.

Ironically, Skillibeng was mercilessly dragged on Twitter some weeks ago, following his announcement about the collab with Nicki Minaj. The “Mr. Universe” deejay posted and soon after deleted a cover art displaying the collaboration with his October 2020 track, which had been hot in the streets for months before. This led fans to believe the artiste was lying and seeking clout, using Nicki Minaj’s name.

After the big drop on Nicki’s mixtape, the artiste was again trending as social media users who previously accused him were put to shame.

Skillibeng has perhaps been enjoying the significant boost and bolstered International reach since the song’s release. The remix trended at number 1on YouTube for three consecutive days after its release.

The gun-play track is currently the deejay’s biggest hit since getting his break in 2019 with “Brik Pan Brick.”

The artiste has been on the rise since, with a wide fan base, even wider now given the latest developments. Fans had projected that the “Coke” deejay would undoubtedly be making strides in the industry locally and internationally, and as such, he should take his music seriously.

As the news broke the internet on Monday, May 24, social media users were quick to commend the artiste, with hopes that he will use the opportunities from this new development wisely.

“Skilli get a big buss internationally, a just him fi know how him ago capitalize affa dis,” one person commented. Another added, “Skillibeng is the next dancehall superstar. I feel he has the potential to be bigger than any other artist right now.”

The remix with Nicki Minaj came just a few weeks after Skillibeng made links with international rappers Rich The Kid and Jay Critch and collaborated on “Real Boss.”

Nicki Minaj Unintentionally Embarrasses Cuban Doll For Butchering Her Lyrics


Nicki Minaj says she didn’t intentionally embarrassed Cuban Doll for butchering her lyrics on Skillibeng’s “Crocodile Teeth (Remix).”

Nicki Minaj’s Beam Me Up Scotty has been making strides in the industry, and along with fans and followers, other rappers have received the new release with positive comments and feedback.

Perhaps Cuban Doll is a big fan of the queen’s new release as on Saturday, May 22, she made a post on Instagram and captioned it with what she perceived to be a quote from Nicki’s remix of Skillibeng‘s “Crocodile Teeth”, an addition to the “Beam Me Up Scotty” mixtape.

The “Let It Blow” rapper posted a shot of her squatting in a bodysuit and heels. “My type of gal wanna know da opps out,” she captioned.

Nicki Minaj slid into the comments section of the post to correct the young rapper, typing out the correct lyrics.

“Might tek a gyal man, I know da opps out,” she wrote. Perhaps no offense was taken by Cuban Doll as she edited the caption and basically went on with her day.

“Beam Me Up Scotty” was released on all streaming services for the first time last week. The “Moment 4 Life” rapper added three new songs to the mixtape; “Seeing Green” ft. Lil Wayne and Drake, “Fractions,” and a remix of Dancehall artiste Skillibeng’s hit record “Crocodile Teeth.”

While it is not new for the Trinidadian rapper to tap into her Caribbean side in her songs, perhaps it is the dialect that sparked the confusion for Cuban Doll.

Nicki Minaj later clarified that her intention was not to embarrassed the young rapper, but just to correct her. “I hope y’all know I love Cuban,” Nicki wrote on her IG Story. “I was having fun w|her. I don’t try 2 embarrass ppl I f** wit. That’s corny. I’ll never correct a lyric ever again chile. Boom.”

Still, the Barbz are making a big deal of the mishap, exclaiming that Nicki’s lyrics were butchered by the 23-year-old rapper.

“If you don’t understand patois just use another verse bc girl,” one person suggested. Another adds, “Just archive the whole post,” while another ordered, “Say my queen lyrics properly or don’t say it at all.”

Cuban Doll was quick to make the corrections, and has so far made no comments on the issue.

Lil Baby And Bobby Shmurda Could Be On Next Skillibeng “Crocodile Teeth” Remix


Skillibeng’s unique rhymes and knack for spotting a musical opportunity has earned him yet another nod from one of hip hop’s biggest names, as Lil Baby endorses his January hit “Coke.”

The rapper shared a video clip of “Coke” to his Instagram story, tagging Skillibeng in the process. The E-Syde deejay’s ability to spot a unique angle was ignited earlier this year when a plane crash-landed in waters just outside of Rocky Point, Clarendon. It was immediately assumed that the vessel was being used to transport cocaine and other banned substances.

The deejay added his own flair to the situation when he crafted the lyrics and subsequent music video for the hit single.

The song’s lyrics include the lines: “Di plane just crash wid e coke/Me nuh put it inna mi nose/Sell me sell it like seh me have a store/We ah di plug nuh di one weh charge phone.”

While controversial, the song has taken off not just in Jamaica but in the diaspora. It has received more than 10.6 million views on YouTube.

Will Lil Baby remix “Crocodile Teeth”?

The endorsement from Lil Baby comes just days after the “Brik Pan Brik” singer collaborated with Nicki Minaj on the remix of his track “Crocodile Teeth.” The remix has been viewed more than 2.1 million times on YouTube and was the number one trending song for music videos (on May 19).

Lil Baby’s cosign can now be added to a list that includes Drake, the aforementioned Nicki Minaj, and Rich The Kid, with who he recently collaborated.

Currently, Skillibeng is working on a new project with Johnny Wonder. Johnny posted a picture of him in a studio on his Instagram stories alongside the caption “Cooking up some new teeth… Skillibeng “Guide Me”, Friday everywhere.”

In a subsequent IG story, Wonder posted a graphic of an upcoming remix of “Crocodile Teeth” with rapper Bobby Shmurda. With rumors of more international collaborations on the horizon for the young Jamaican deejay, fans are already assuming that there is a Lil Baby feature in the works.

Featuring: Flo Rida, Nicki Minaj

So many girls in here, where do I begin?
I see this one, I’m ’bout to go in
Then she said “I’m here with my friends”
She got me thinking, and that’s when I said

Where them girls at, girls at?

So go get them, we can all be friends

Hey, bring it on baby, all your friends
You’re the shit and I love that body
You wanna ball, explicit, I swear you’re good, I won’t tell nobody
You got a BFF, I wanna see that girl, it’s all women invited

Hairdos and nails, that Louie, Chanel all up in the party
President’s in my wallet, no rules I’m ’bout it
Blow the whistle for the hotties
I got it, shorty, it’s never too much, can’t be doing too much

Ten to one of me, I can handle that love
Outta of my reach, we can all get buzzed
Holla, ’cause I’m free to whatever, it’s no rush

So many boys in here, where do I begin?
I see this one, I’m ’bout to go in
Then he said “I’m here with my friends”
He got to thinking, and that’s when he said

Where them girls at, girls at?

Give Young Dancehall Stars Like Skillibeng A Chance Says Veteran Producer Johnny Wonder


Many people were in disbelief last week when Skillibeng teased that he might have an upcoming collaboration with rap superstar Nicki Minaj. In fact, after he removed the post from Instagram, he was ridiculed as a lot of people questioned the validly of his claims of getting Nicki Minaj on the track.

When Nicki dropped her re-released 2009 mixtape Beam Me Up Scotty on digital streaming platforms, Skillibeng‘s naysayers were left with their mouths open as a remix of Skillibeng’s “Crocodile Teeth” was prominently featured. The video of the remix was put on YouTube last Friday, May 14, and has already surpassed 1.7 million views and is still climbing.

The single is also performing well on local charts and is currently the number one trending song on YouTube’s local chart. It’s also number one in nine Caribbean countries on Apple Music. The producer of the track, Johnny Wonder, told THE STAR that there is a lesson in the collaboration for young dancehall artists. He said it shows that even though you do things differently if you believe in your approach, you can make it. He added that even though young acts are taking a different path to the veterans and it doesn’t mean that they won’t be successful.

“What this does for the young artistes is give them hope. It saying to them, if Skilli can do it, then maybe we can do it too one day. Quality cannot be stopped, so young artistes, just keep on going. Don’t mind the heat, just keep doing your thing,” he said.

Johnny Wonder orchestrate the Nicki Minaj and Skillibeng collab

He also shared how the collaboration came to be. “Nicki just had a baby and wanted to come back, and this was one of the songs she wanted to be a part of. It was on her radar, and that just goes to show how big Crocodile Teeth is. It was also on Drake‘s, Bobby Shmurda, Burna Boy and all those other big-name stars who were singing along with it,” he said.

Johnny Wonder and Bounty Killer

Amazingly, he added that the entire thing took a week to do, and it happened so quickly because of Nicki Minaj and her team’s love for the track. “That song is massive. I think it was bigger than Skilli at one point and once you have a huge song, the possibilities for you as an artiste are endless. It’s impressive and the sky’s the limit right now,” he continued.

What’s equally as impressive is that the producer has been churning out hits for over 30 years now. Even though he took a break in the 90s, he returned in the 2000s with a bang. He’s worked with some of the big names in dancehall like Bounty Killer and Elephant Man. Following his latest fire collab, he spoke with the Gleaner as well about his endurance in the genre. He explained that to make it, one needs to be prepared to work hard and never give up because “there’s no space for lazy people in the music business.”

He added that you also have to believe in yourself even when things seem impossible.

“I have been doing this for a while, and I have had huge successes on the international scene, but none of that came easy. I have had to persevere through a lot of things because this industry is full of obstacles. You have to be committed to working seven days a week, 365 days a year. If you want to be successful in this game, you cannot be lazy. You have to stay one step ahead,” he went on to say.

His passion for the genre began when he was just a teen growing up in Brooklyn, and he felt that he had to do whatever it took to ensure that reggae and dancehall artists get a bigger platform to perform on. While he’s achieved that for the genre many times, he believes that the moment he knew it could be done was when he got the chance to work with Bounty Killer for his 1996 album, My Xperience.

That album would become one of the greatest bridges between hip-hop and dancehall as Wonder was able to bring together a star-studded cast, including acts like the Fugees, Mobb Deep, Raekwon, RZA, and Busta Rhymes. Even Bounty Killer has publicly said that he thinks that’s his best album ever.

“I took on Killer’s My Xperience project, and working with him really helped me establish dancehall on a global scale. We worked with the Fugees and many other big names, and it was just a whole experience. That album was something special. I loved it. The world deserved to see and hear this talented man,” he added. Following that outstanding effort, New York became his playing field where he was able to work with a lot more artists.

He also revealed to The Gleaner that he’s not done, and he has new music on the way. He said that he has a new Squash, a new Bounty Killer, and some more Skillibeng in the works. However, he admitted that he prefers to work at his own pace, so there is no timeframe for when these tracks will be released.

“My dream for the Jamaican industry is to push reggae and dancehall music to its true limit. This music industry can go so far, and we just need to facilitate the growth in any way possible,” he added.

Nicki Minaj Addresses Alleged Cocaine Use On IG Live


Nicki Minaj took to Instagram to address rumors that she has been using drugs.

The Trinidadian rapper went Live on Instagram Thursday, May 13, to promote her Beam Me Up Scotty mixtape, which dropped moments after she ended the Live session. Her Barbz showered their queen with love, and she reciprocated with promises of new material, among other things. Nicki Minaj was full of life and optimism as she spoke about what is to come. It turns out that was not the only observation made by fans. Some Instagram users speculated that the rapper was sniffing consistently throughout her Live and concluded that she was on drugs.

The “Anaconda” rapper went Live again earlier today (May 14) to deny the rumors, reiterating that she has never used coke.

“I don’t know if it’s just me, but I wouldn’t be embarrassed about any f**king drugs I did, that’s why I talk about the motherf**kin drugs I do in my motherf**king music. Always have, always f**king will,” She said.

“If I’m off em, I’m off em child, but I want to make this clear so open everybody’s ears, clear your ears out. I have never, ever in my life with my hands on Jesus Christ, and y’all know how I feel about my Lord and savior. Never in my life, ever, not even once sniffed coke. Ever,” She clarified.

The “Moment 4 Life” rapper went on to explain that she was sniffing throughout her Live because of her allergies. She adds that her natural body temperature is lower than the average person, according to her doctor, and this causes her to feel colder than everyone else. In addition, she says she also gets sick very easily, which is why she has always refrained from using drugs like that. She explained that she actually doesn’t judge persons who snort cocaine.

“I have a lot of friends, or acquaintances in the industry who do coke. I don’t judge them for it but I’ve never tried it, never wanted to, never asked them to,” She declared.

The rapper added, “Especially in the fashion world, that’s so common and normal, but yes… That’s the thing, when people used to lie about me I never used to clear my name and there was someone who took a major step and told that lie to people and I never addressed it because I thought it was too ridiculous at the time to address but something just told me to now.”

Nicki Minaj Drops “Crocodile Teeth” Remix With Skillibeng On ‘Beam Me Up Scotty’


Nicki Minaj released her mixtape “Beam Me Up Scotty” on all streaming services, with three new songs. Among them, to the surprise of many Jamaican Skillibeng fans, is a remix of “Crocodile Teeth.

Nicki Minaj confirmed the remix on Thursday night (May 13), just a few hours before the song’s release. Needless to say, the confirmation has put many to shame who recently dragged the artiste for announcing the remix that they believed to be fake.

Fans and followers felt deceived after Skillibeng posted and soon after deleted a “Crocodile Teeth” artwork with the Trinidadian rapper’s name emblazoned with his. This resulted in the “Brik Pan Brik” deejay being mercilessly dragged on Twitter for using Minaj’s name for hype. As it turns out, Skilli’s announcement was not false, and Twitter is now calling on the public to apologize.

“NICKI JUST ANNOUNCED SHE DID THE REMIX ON CROCODILE TEETH!!! APOLOGISE TO SKILLI BBC BENGGGGGG YUHS,” one person urged. Another commented, “On behalf of the Jamaican family & the barbz, Skillibeng, they would like to apologize for any inconvenience they may have caused you.” Meanwhile, another warned, “After today ya’ll better stop sleeping on Skillibeng & that’s on Mary haddda lil lamb!”

Of course, the remix is nothing less than impressive, having racked up over 372 thousand views in 9 hours that propelled it to trend at #6 on YouTube. Nicki Minaj opens the song with a hot intro displaying her inner Caribbean, with her Trinidadian accent thick in some parts of the song.

“Might teck a gyal man, I know the opps out / Dem bright, f**k I look like in your eyesight? / Gyal I try it, but it not quite right/ They wan’ fight cah tru dem wah hype,” she raps.

Skillibeng follows with the chorus and other verses. Fans have commented that the remix is, in fact, “a beautiful combination of voice and sound.”

The original “Crocodile Teeth” was released in October 2020 and is Skillibeng’s biggest song to date. The song has gained a lot of traction since its release from both local and international audiences and celebrities.

Notably, Minaj is no newcomer to Dancehall collaborations. The rapper had previously collaborated with dancehall acts, including Beenie Man, Mavado, Gyptian, among others.

Nicki Minaj Flexes Pink Richard Mille In Rolls-Royce Truck Ahead Of 1st IG Live


Nicki Minaj is bent on making an entrance.

The “Super Bass” rapper recently announced her return to the hip hop scene with a promise to release new music come Friday, May 14. Fans are eagerly anticipating the release, which Nicki Minaj has been promoting since the start of the week. Monday was all about the Queen appearing as bare as one can be on IG. On Tuesday, she gave a lesson on how to set a thirst trap, and on Wednesday, Nicki showed just why she is a “Boss A*s B*tch.”

Nicki Minaj posted a video on Instagram cruising in her Rolls-Royce Cullinan and sporting a pink Richard Mille on her wrist. She captioned, “Going live tmrw night @ 11PM EST- it’s the PINK Richard Milleeeee 4 meeeeee. Only 8 in the world. Anyway, be on time tmrw night.”

Fans are speculating that Thursday’s LIVE will be about her return as well as her new release. A snippet of the song can be heard as Minaj rolled up. The “Barbie Tingz” rapper had disclosed a snippet of lyrics from the song in a previous post.

“B**chs act like they want action, heard they want action, b**ch we ain’t duckin no action. I’m bout to give em dat traction, send a distraction- then ima line ’em like FRACTIONS. F R I D A Y,” she wrote.

While Nicki received immense props for stunting in her Rolls Royce, her husband Kenneth Petty picked up some heat after he was spotted chilling in the passenger seat.

“It’s her husband sitting over there like a lil kid for me,” one person commented. Another added, “She should have driven solo my opinion.”

It is safe to say Petty is not really a favorite of Nicki’s Barbz, and many were openly dissatisfied with her decision to marry him. This may be partly because he is a registered sex offender who was convicted of first-degree attempted rape in 1995. He also pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter in 2006 and served time in prison.

Petty made headlines when his relationship with Nicki was made public in December 2018. The couple welcomed their first child in September last year, which has possibly led to Nicki’s music and social media hiatus.

Rihanna & Nicki Minaj Starts Following Each Other On IG Again, Are They Working On New Music?


Nicki Minaj and Rihanna are following each other again as the Queen rapper prepares to make her return to music.

On Monday, Nicki Minaj sent her fans into a frenzy when she posted for the first time in a while, seemingly announcing her highly anticipated return to music. The Young Money rapper who took a hiatus from the music after starting her family has kept fans wondering when she would be back ever since she announced her retirement in 2019. While she has been on a few features, we are yet to see the rapper officially re-emerge with a solo single.

Barbz may have prompted Nicki’s impromptu return after they got the #LLCParty hashtag trending on Twitter last night, leading the fan-favorite track by Minaj to become her best performing single of 2021 overnight. “LLC,” which was released as part of the rapper’s 2018 Queen album, entered the Top 30 on the US iTunes chart, which is a new peak.

Nicki Minaj took to Instagram on Monday (May 10) to post a seductive photo of herself covering her lady parts with cushions while sitting on an office desk. In the caption, the rapper wrote “FRIDAY,” leading fans to believe that the rapper has something in store for them. Along with the pleasant surprise of Nicki’s return, it turns out the rapper is also following Rihanna again and vice versa.

The Queen Radio star and Fenty Beauty boss have not been following each other on Instagram for the last couple of years. Fans suspect that the Bajan superstar unfollowed the rapper around the time she was feuding with Remy Ma, but all that seems to be a thing of the past now that they have both hit that follow button again.

Fans are speculating that the Caribbean superstars reuniting on the gram may be a sign that they’re about to drop a new song together. Given Rihanna’s similar musical hiatus, no one is quite bold enough to get their hopes up about that. However, one can dream.

Skillibeng Teases “Crocodile Teeth” Freestyle With Nicki Minaj


Skillibeng teases his upcoming “Crocodile Teeth” Freestyle with Nicki Minaj.

Ever since emerging on the scene, Skillibeng has shown all the qualities of becoming a master of the dancehall genre. He’s managed to cop some impressive collaborations along the way, including top dancehall acts like Dre Island, Tommy Lee Sparta, and dancehall superstar Popcaan. Now he’s looking to take his music to an international level and has announced his biggest potential upcoming collab to date, a freestyle remix of his massive hit “Crocodile Teeth” with multi-platinum rapper Nicki Minaj.

He revealed the exciting news on Instagram with the caption: “50,000 comments.” Fans immediately began to react to the news. Lila Ike, who he has a track with, said: “Run dat fuuuuh,” while Shenseea and Shaneil Muir added flame emojis to show their support while ShenYeng calls it a “big look”. The post, which was made a short while ago today, May 8, has already been liked over 50,000 times.

“Yuh wicked more Dan Weh me tink,” one fan said, while another added, “Happy for you and Jamaica when you win everyone wins.” This fan chimed in with enthusiasm, “This ago sick when it drop mi gad.”

The track has already been massively successful on YouTube and has already brought in over 18 million views since it was released in October 2020. Just last week, Canadian rapper Tory teased a new track he recorded on the Skillibeng’s “Crocodile Teeth” riddim, an indicator of how popular the track keeps getting.

Lanez shared a clip of the track on Instagram and captioned it “@skillibeng #CrocodileTeeth …… should I drop this or leave this in the stash? … I think it’s fire tho … word to @ovoroxx cornrows.” The Esyde artist has enjoyed mostly positive feedback from fans ever since his break out hit “Brik Pan Brik” in 2019. That song has about seven million views.

Nicki Minaj, who has strong Caribbean roots through her birthplace Trinidad, has been quiet for a while now since she’s chosen to focus on her new family, but if she’s thinking about making a come back soon, then this collaboration is sure to produce some heat.

While Skillibeng is relatively new to the music, Nicki Minaj has been around for over a decade and is to date one of the most commercially successful rappers of all-time and perhaps the most success female rapper ever. She has sold over 137 million records worldwide. Despite not releasing any new music this year, her song “LLC” climb to No. 1 on the chart after her fans started pushing the single.

Nicki Minaj’s “LLC” Hit No. 1 As Her Fans Rally Behind The Single


It’s been a minute since fans heard anything new from rapper Nicki Minaj, but now she has a number one single.

Of course, she featured on a few tracks in 2019 and 2020 as a guest, but she hasn’t dropped a solo effort since her last studio album, Queen, in 2018. That’s primarily because she’s in sort of a pre-retirement phase, having said that she’s taking time to focus on her family and raising her newborn son with her husband, Kenneth Petty.

That isn’t stopping her ascendency on the charts, though. Even though she’s basically out of the game somehow, she’s still scoring hits. Thursday night, May 7, Nicki Minaj hit single “LLC” was given a sudden push by her loyal fans, aka the Barbz. The love from her fans has pushed “LLC” into the Top 30 on US iTunes for the first time.

According to social media page, Rap God, “LLC” becomes Nicki Minaj’s best performing single Globally in 2021 in just 8 hours.”

The Barbz made it their priority to try and encourage their leader to put out new music. So they got together and launched the “LLC Party” on Twitter. Soon after, the initiative “LLC Party” became the No. 1 trending topic in the United States and worldwide with over 133,000 tweets. Even Doja Cat encouraged the Brabz by telling them to stream the song on her Instagram Story.

The track also entered the Top 40 of the iTunes US Chart for the first time since its release some three years ago. Her fans could also be responding to Joe Budden’s call for her not to release music right now. In other words, Joe Budden thinks that Nicki Minaj should extend her hiatus from music. He made the statements during an episode of The Joe Budden Podcast where he, Mal, and Rory were discussing whether DJ Khaled’s Khaled Khaled was a hit or miss.

“Did you not just hear everything we said about Khaled dropping during COVID,” Budden asked Mal. “You want Nicki to drop right now? Nicki, I love you, I wish you and your family well, and that’s what I got.” It seems the fans have spoken, and they are patiently awaiting Nicki’s new music, if it’s even in the works.

Nicki Minaj Should Extend Her Hiatus From Music Says Joe Budden


After years of hitmaking and trendsetting, Nicki Minaj decided to take a well-earned break from her explosive career to spend time with her new husband and baby boy. Since her conspicuous absence from music, fans have continuously expressed their eagerness for new material.  However, not everyone agrees that it is the right time for the Barbz to return to the rap game. 

On a recent episode of The Joe Budden Podcast, Joe, Rory, and Mal debated about Nicki’s return to the scene after reviewing DJ Khaled’s newly dropped project, Khaled Khaled.

Confident that the world is ready for a Nicki Minaj comeback, Mal declared, “It’s time.  It’s time for a Nicki album.” Joe Budden was clearly surprised by Mal’s opinion, replying, “Did you not just hear everything we said about Khaled dropping during COVID? You want Nicki to drop right now?” 

Clarifying that his opinion doesn’t necessarily reflect poorly on Nicki, Joe added, “Nicki, I love you, I wish you and your family well, and that’s what I got.”  It seems Budden thinks that dropping an album right now is a poor business decision, but Minaj fans are likely to disagree.

Many people in the hip hop world have been discussing Nicki Minaj’s place in music recently, particularly since critics and influencers have a hard time not pitting female rappers against each other. Since we are beginning to see increasingly more women rappers have just as much success as their male counterparts, fans and industry commentators are also more tempted to rank and categorize the ladies of rap instead of seeing them as the dynamic and multi-faceted forces that they are.

However, rapper Russ recently took to Twitter to make a strong point about the timing of Nicki Minaj’s career, saying, “Imagine if TikTok was out during Nicki Minaj blowin up era…numbers woulda been astronomical lmao.  Did it on em, only, anaconda, twerk it, FEELING MYSELF Man, soooo many like bruh lmao sh*t was already outta here but that woulda been insane lol.” 

It’s true that Nicki has some of the most memorable and highly animated rap songs of the last couple decades, so it is easy to imagine the endless TikTok dances she would have inspired.  But of course, it is never too late to make a Nicki Minaj track go viral on TikTok!

Stefflon Don Catches Heat From Nicki Minaj Barbz Over This Freestyle


Nicki Minaj Barbz are going after Stefflon Don for seemingly sounding like the Trinidadian rapper in a new freestyle.

When it comes to fandoms, Nicki Minaj definitely has one of the most formidable group of fans on the internet. Known as the Barbz, they are always ready and willing to go to bat for the “Queen” when warranted and in the latest case, also when unwarranted. British rapper Stefflon Don is the latest person to find herself on the receiving end of the ire of Nicki’s stans. And what did she do to deserve the vitriol? Well, she simply posted a freestyle.

The freestyle posted on the singer’s Instagram page with the caption “Crocodile Teeth Fi a Fake Friend”, sees her rapping with her signature Jamaican accent as she talks about fake friends and liking “bad man.”

The video was quickly picked up and reposted by several blogs, and that is where the drama begins. On The ShadeRoom in particular, many fans were not here for Stefflon’s freestyle as they thought she was copying Nicki and not paying homage.

One Nicki stan commented, “To dislike Nicki so much she sholl look and sound just like her….” The comment was partially in reference to Stefflon’s blue and green pastel-colored hair. Nicki Minaj was the first female rapper to embrace pastel-colored hair, with her signature pink tresses.

Another Nicki fan said, “I thought it was a Nicki voice over remix or something.” And a third fan commented, “One of Nicki’s sons.”

Despite the Nicki backlash, many IG users were here for the freestyle, with some defending Stefflon, arguing that her accent and delivery were authentic as she is of Jamaican background. One fan said, “She’s not following Nicki. That’s this girl real accent lmao y’all need to behave.”

Stefflon Don was born in Birmingham, England, but she is of Jamaican heritage and is fluent in the island’s native tongue, Patois. Nicki Minaj was born in Trinidad hence her own island girl accent. The similarity in sound between the two is, therefore, coincidental and less likely as a result of Stefflon deliberately trying to copy Nicki’s flow, and thankfully for Stefflon, there were a few of her fans who highlighted this.

Sadly, this is not the first time that the singer has been accused of trying to steal Nicki’s flow. The Barbz have regularly pitted the two against each other. Things came to a head in 2018 when Stefflon commented on the beef between Cardi B and Nicki Minaj, stating she was disappointed in Nicki. Barbz responded harshly to her comments, sending threats to the singer.

Ever since they have berated Stefflon for refusing to pay homage to Nicki, this continues despite the fact that she has said several times that she is a fan of Minaj and has never had any beef with her.

Nicki Minaj’s Sister Ming Defends Her Baby Boy From Online Bullies


Nicki Minaj’s sister is defending her nephew from online bullies.

Queens rapper Nicki Minaj finally revealed the face of her healthy, bouncy baby boy a couple of days ago, and her loyal legion of Barbs have not been able to contain the joy-filled emotions since then. The chubby 3-month old baby boy was dressed in the latest Versace and even sported an iced out watch to ring in the new milestone. To top it off, his 38-year-old Nicki had nothing but praises for her Papa Bear when she wrote a truly moving caption.

She proceeded to thank the little guy for allowing her the opportunity to be the one who brought him into this world.

“Becoming a mom is by far the most fulfilling job I’ve ever taken on,” she confessed before sending her blessings to all the moms and moms to be. “Sending love to all the superhero mothers out there. Big hugs to all the women who have been pregnant during this challenging time.”

Sadly, even with the love meter almost at maximum, there were still a few persons who proceeded to ridicule Papa Bear. It seems he has very little to worry about since his aunt ensured she was on the prowl and disciplined the persons who had attempted to troll the little guy. The rapper’s younger sister Ming Maraj hopped into the comment section below an unspecified post and had these choice words for a few for one specific Instagram troll.

“You a clown body shaming a child, u know damn well you prolly was a fat baby too,” she penned. “Ur tf mad because u ain’t getting the attention u wish you had, ur mad because ur irrelevant.” Her protective rant also came with a fierce threat aimed at anyone looking to continue the wild and cruel act of ridiculing a baby.

Shenseea Eyes Pop Music Plans To Expand Her Brand


Shenseea eyes a career as an international pop star.

Jamaica produced the most music per capita in the world and dancehall is currently expanding into markets globally like never before. In fact, some of the biggest hip hop and pop songs of the last two years are of dancehall origins, so when Shenseea says she wants to expand her brand into pop, she may be on to something. The young dancehall hitmaker has been seeing a steady climb in her career under the stewardship of Romiech but she is far from complacent.

“By next year I want to be international, and when I say that, I don’t mean just as a dancehall artiste, but an international pop star who incorporates the dancehall culture and my accent while majoring in pop music, because that is my first love,” Shenseea said.

Rihanna started her career as a reggae-pop artist before broadening her career as a full-fledged pop artist and today she is one of the biggest pop stars in history and one of the most influential women in music and fashion currently. Nicki Minaj also injects a bit of patois in some of her music from time to time.

Shenseea is currently getting ready to release her first pop single “Love I Got For U.” The track was produced by Miami-based producers Unified Pacific Entertainment and she recently shot the video with director Jason ‘Jay Will’ Williams. “So for me, actually going in that direction I think I will have a great impact as well. And this whole production is a step towards it … (the) video is loud on a different level,” the “Loodi” deejay said.

The single will be released on all digital platforms in the coming days and the video will also make its debut on the same day.

Nicki Minaj Hoodstars Associate 7even-Up Shot In His Head


Nicki Minaj former Hoodstars member 7even-Up was shot multiple times including in his head.

The Young Money MC is currently praying for her longtime friend and former member of the rap group she was once a part of, Hoodstars. 7even-Up, whose real name is Jaquin Royall, was shot multiple times all over his body including bullet wounds to his head in the Coney Island area earlier this month. Luckily he survived the attempted murder and was rushed to a local hospital where he has been getting treatments.

Royall is also facing some legal troubles because police found an illegal gun in his possession on the scene of the shooting. Whether or not that gun is linked to any crime is not yet known, but he could face with gun charges which carry years in prison. Details about the shooting are still sketchy, but sources say he was leaving a bar in the area when he was ambushed.

Before landing a record deal with Young Money/Cash Money, Nicki Minaj and her now ex-boyfriend Safaree Samuels, were members of a rap group out of New York name Hoodstars. The group comprised of four members who use to perform at clubs and parties around Queens and Brooklyn. The group was later disbanded and Nicki set out to pursue her own solo career.


Migos Says “Culture 2” Will Be The Biggest Rap Album Of 2018


Migos is a week away from dropping their new album Culture 2.

The Atlanta rap trio sat down with Ebro on Beats 1 Radio on Thursday where they opened up about the upcoming album, due on January 26th. In the interview, Migos discussed Cardi B and Nicki Minaj on “MotorSport” and their beef with Joe Budden. Among the best takeaways from the interview was when Migos categorically states that Culture 2 will be the biggest album this year. Whether or not they can prove that only time will tell.

Ebro asked the trio about getting Nicki Minaj and Cardi B on the same song “MotorSport” and why they failed to get them in the same scene in the music video. “We tried to create that moment,” Quavo said. If they had made that happened to it would’ve been a great moment for hip hop to have two of the leading female rappers currently in the same scene. Nevertheless, getting them on the same song is an amazing accomplishment. Migos is nominated for two Grammy’s in the Best Rap Album and Best Rap Performance for “Bad and Boujee.”

Speaking on Joe Budden, the group jokes about putting the rapper turn podcaster back on the map and even making him land a new job with Diddy’s Revolt TV network. “We want to see him win but he don’t want to see us win,” Takeoff said. There was also another moment when Quavo said Takeoff is the best rapper in the Migos group. “When we were all out, going crazy running around, my boy Take was rapping,” Quavo said and Offset agreed. “He the first one to get a gold record.”

Culture 2 release date is set for next week Friday, January 26th. The tracklist for the highly anticipated album is not yet available, hence the guest list is still a secret.

Maury Povich Thinks Nicki Minaj and Safaree Belong Together


Nicki Minaj and Safaree Samuels belong with each other, according to Maury Povich.

Since their breakup in 2014 over, both Nicki Minaj and Safaree have dated other people but one thing they both have in common now and that is, they are both single. SB has dated a bunch of females since joining Love and Hip Hop and not of those relationships worked out. He even suffered some embarrassment at the hands of a few of the ladies including Sophia Body who put him on blast during an interview and Star Divine who gave away all his stuff that was at her home after accusing him of cheating.

Nicki Minaj, on the other hand, has dated Meek Mill and Nas although she never really confirmed the later. Her relationship with Meek ended bitterly a year ago, while her split with Nas took place over the holidays. Maury says he knows a good love story when he sees one and the two former flames should give it a try again. “Uncle Maury knows a little something about love [Safaree Samuels] and [Nicki Minaj] why not try it again?” Maury tweeted on Monday.

Whether or not these two will ever get back together is a very long shot given the hatred that has developed between them over the past three years. SB even said in a past interview with Wendy Williams that he will never get back together with the Young Money rapper whom he dated for over a decade. That’s a lot of history so even with the bad blood between them now, you just never know what may happen.

Safaree himself regularly keep track of the happenings with Nicki Minaj only and last week he commented on a story about her split with Nas. “Yup, we’ve both been having bad luck in this department… Sigh Rastafari… Ain’t no hope in these streets,” he wrote.

Uncle Maury knows a little something about love…@IAMSAFAREE and @NICKIMINAJ why not try it again?

Nas and Kelis Made Peace For Their Son With Custody Agreement


Nas and Kelis have made peace at least temporarily for the sake of their son.

The former couple reached a custody agreement in their ongoing custody battle over their 8-year-son. Just a few weeks ago, Nas complained to a judge that Kelis has been hostile to him and is preventing him from seeing his son as per their previous agreement, TMZ reported. There were some rumors that she might have been jealous of the rap icon dating rapper Nicki Minaj and perhaps this is mere coincidence, but they reached an agreement just days after news of the relationship’s demise surfaced.

The couple’s new agreement will see Nas has his son Knight for extended periods like weekends which begins on Fridays after school and runs through to Sunday night or Monday night if it’s a three-day weekend like when a holiday falls on Monday. This new setup will cover January through to March when they are expected to hammer out a more permanent custody agreement.

RELATED: Nicki Minaj and Nas Break Up Denies Pregnancy Rumors

As part of the agreement, the couple agrees that both parties will not expose their son to social media, which means you will not see Nas or Kelis post any pictures of their son. In his most recent court filing, Nas called Kelis hostile and says she deliberately prevents him from spending quality time with his son. He argued that she only allows him to see Knight when it was convenient for her and has little regards for his wishes to see the 8-year-old. Seems co-parenting is harder than it seems, but at least these two came to the table and worked something out.

As for the rap legend’s career, many fans are hoping that they will get an album from him this year although no formal announcement was made. Nicki Minaj would have been a great stepmom but perhaps she wanted her own child.

Another Tape Of Offset Cheating On Cardi B Leaked Online


Seems hackers have leaked another tape of Offset cheating on Cardi B.

Offset iCloud account got hacked last month and the hackers have been slowly leaking contents stolen from the account in a drip drip game. On the weekend before Christmas, Cardi B and Offset relationship almost came to an end when a video was leaked online alleged of the Migos rapper and another female inside a hotel room. The clip didn’t show the male face, but the female was fully visible. Cardi posted on Twitter that she became emotional after the video surfaced.

In the end, they patched things up and looks like they are going strong and are heading for marriage. Seems someone is seriously trying to tear them apart. A snippet of an alleged explicit tape allegedly of Offset surfaced on Twitter on Friday sending the social media site into a frenzy. Both Cardi B and Offset have remained silent which is deafening, but their fans are sounding off.

The video shows a man resembling Offset but the clip is blurry so you can’t conclude that it’s him. It might be Chief Keef, Quavo, Takeoff, Weezy or any other rapper with dreads.

Son #offset doing too much man. If you don’t want to be with her again leave and save her the embarrassment jare. Damn ?

Nicki Minaj and Nas Break Up Denies Pregnancy Rumors


Nicki Minaj and Nas have reportedly broke up and she is denying being pregnant for him.

Multiple publications reported on her alleged pregnancy yesterday claiming that she is expecting her first child with her boyfriend Nas. Nicki Minaj and the rap legend have been dating for a few months now, but they are not starting out the new year together. TMZ first reported about their break up on Thursday and now sources close to the Trinidadian rapper has confirmed with Dancehall HipHop that they are not together.

We’re told that their relationship was never really serious to begin with so they mutually decided to end their relationship just before the holidays. “No they aren’t together and was never really seriously together to begin with, the media just over blown things as usual,” sources said. They both live in different cities on the opposite side of the country and that also played a role in their relationship demise. “Living on different coasts hundreds of miles apart made it impossible to sustain a relationship and they are both very busy individuals,” sources added.

The talks about her pregnancy are bogus and our source assured us that Nicki Minaj is not pregnant, not for Nas and not for anyone. This is not the first time that gossip sites like MTO have reported that Minaj is pregnant and then it turns out that she is really not pregnant, so until she makes and announcement or we see a baby bump then take those reports with half a grain of salt.

Nicki Minaj and Nas started dated around May of last year. They were first spotted together in public on a dinner date at at the rap icon’s chicken and waffle joint in New York, Sweet Chick. She also regularly gushes over him on her Instagram account like posting this photo of him back in November.

Nicki Minaj Cried When Visit Brother In Jail Before Christmas


Nicki Minaj paid her brother a visit in jail before Christmas and cried uncontrollably.

The Young Money rapper’s older brother Jelani Maraj was convicted of sexually assaulting a minor on November 9th and is currently behind bars awaiting sentencing. He is facing decades in prison for the damning crime. Sources close to the Trini rapper told Dancehall HipHop that she paid him a visit with her mother and young brother just before the Christmas holiday and she broke down during the meeting. “She just couldn’t stop crying that’s her older brother, she paid for his wedding when he got married to the woman who testified against him in the trial,” sources revealed.

Our sources told us that Nicki Minaj didn’t want to visit her brother in the Nassau County jail but was convinced by her mother, Carol Maraj, to do so. “She really did it because of her mother, she wanted to support her mother who took it very hard,” our source added. We’re told that Nicki didn’t want to go not because she doesn’t love her brother, but because it would be too painful to see his face and to see him behind bars after being convicted for such, a horrendous crime.

Jelani Maraj has denied the charges against him and his attorney argued in court that the victim’s mother was trying to extort Nicki Minaj for $25 million to make the charges go away. His attorney also argued the Maraj’s wife coerce his daughter who was 12 years old at the time of the crime to lie about it. His sentencing is set for next month, and he could be given decades in prison for the conviction. We’re also told that Nicki’s attorneys advised her to steer clear of the case during the trial and as such she did not go to court.

Nicki Minaj is currently working on her upcoming album due sometime next year.

Joe Budden Under Siege From Azealia Banks Who Defends Nicki Minaj and Female Rap


Azealia Banks is once again defending Nicki Minaj from Joe Budden trash Talking.

Budden and Charlamagne Tha God named Nicki on their “Trash List” for 2017 and Banks is certainly not happy about that. She has become the fast of championing female hip hop on social media and has become a staunched defender of Ms Minaj’s role in female rap. “Joe Budden talks the most sh*t about rappers yet the emotional trauma (and possible industry backlash) from being rejected by JAY-Z well over ten years ago is the reason why he’s actually not a part of any rap game or music community anywhere,” she wrote.

“But it SERIOUSLY makes me sick to my stomach to see @cthagod and Joe Burden get pleasure from tearing this black woman down because they are LEGIT LYING TO THEMSELVES,” she added in her lengthy post. “Every comparison they make is a FARCE…not cardio [Cardi B] nor remus [Remy Ma] are fucking with nicki on her off day.”

Azealia Banks is certain no fan of the rapper turn podcaster and now Charlamagne has joined that ranks as one of the most hated media personalities in rap. The two took turns in bashing Nicki Minaj while telling viewers that she had a trash year despite dropping a lot of new music. “I can’t remember the last time I saw a superstar of Nicki’s caliber put out three records at the same time, and by the way that ‘No Fraids’ record had the iHeartRadio stimulus package that you going to play every hour on the hour on every urban station throughout the country,” Charlamagne said while Joe Budden added, “Nicki Minaj is a superstar and you cannot have 90 followers and put out three records and non of them catch [on].”

Of course, Nicki Minaj wasn’t the only name on the Trash List for 2017, rap legend Eminem and newcomer Lil Yachty was also on the list along with Frank Ocean.

Put your reading glasses on, Roommates, because #AzealiaBanks just came for #JoeBudden and #CharlamagneThaGod after they called #NickiMinaj trash ?? (View earlier post)
