Young Money star Nicki Minaj recently discussed the new steamy "Beez in the Trap" music video, explaining why she placed a heavy emphasis on strippers.
For the self-proclaimed Barbie, the strip club setting is where her career really began to take off.
"When I was doing my mixtapes, I would perform in strip clubs, I would perform in clubs and it was just like some of my most die-hard fans would be in these places," Nicki said in an interview. "I wanted to kinda like honor them -- kinda honor all my girls in the club and just say thank you for the support." The Benny Boom-directed clip, which was released Friday, follows Nicki as she struts through the nudie bar counting hundreds and working her money-maker in some very flattering outfits. In one scene, Ms. Minaj sports a leopard-print catsuit and shakes her tail feather alongside "Beez in the Trap" guest 2 Chainz. "When I see the strippers and all of that, they always show me love, so I wanted to kinda make a video around them," the reigning rap queen said. "I hit up Benny Boom like, 'Yo, I need a sexy video right now.' I knew 2 Chainz wasn't gonna be mad." (MTV)

The video was shot in a Miami gentlemen's club, with surprise cameos from many local "fan" favorites, including recently retired stripper "Tip Drill."
Directed by Benny Boom, most of the video takes place at a Miami strip club where Minaj is surrounded by a bevy of bikini-clad strippers. Not to be outdone by the beautiful dancers, Minaj also dons a bikini and neon green hair and twerks it for the camera, while her rumored boyfriend Scaff Beezy is in the background flashing wads of cash. We also see Minaj wearing a pink-colored leotard behind a barbed-wired fence looking seductive and fierce. She also dons a leopard-print one-piece and puts on a bootylicious show for 2 Chainz as he spits his verses. (Pop Crush)
