Young Money’s Nicki Minaj is back to her music-making ways with the release of her new song and music video “Lookin A** N*gga.”
The unexpected new track premiered online Wednesday (February 12) afternoon.
Nicki Minaj has been on a lyrical onslaught lately, dropping show-stealing verses on YG’s “My N***a” and Young Thug‘s “Danny Glover” hits. Today the Queen Barbie goes solo on “Lookin’ Ass N***a,” a track that will be included on both her upcoming album, The Pink Print, and Young Money’s Rise of an Empire compilation (out March 11). The venomous track comes complete with a seductive black-and-white video directed by NABIL, in which Nicki flaunts her au naturale look. (Miss Info TV)
Photos from the music video’s set heated up the Internet a few days ago.
After sharing some behind-the-scenes pics last week, Nicki Minaj has teased her Barbz with a new round of photos from her mysterious video shoot. The busty Barb heats up the desert, rocking a clip-on ponytail and pasties underneath a black cutout dress by Mark Fast, Roberto Cavalli jewelry, and Versace stilettos. For her second look, Nicki wears her hair up in a bun and squeezes into a bodysuit by Luxe & Le’Bra, gold Moschino jacket, Louboutin boots, and more pasties. “Behind the scenes. Shot by @grizzleemusic,” she wrote on Instagram. (Rap-Up)
The Young Money star’s new ESPN Magazine cover shot alongside sports icon Kobe Bryant hit the Internet last month.

The offering has been dubbed the “The Music Issue” and will also feature stories on Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, and look back on Janet Jackson‘s infamous Super Bowl wardrobe malfunction ten years ago. Not much more information is available, but stay tuned and we’ll be sure to keep you updated. (XXL Mag)
Recently, the self-proclaimed “Barbie” revealed she would put all priorities to the side to focus on an upcoming new LP.
“I already started, and I’m going home, actually tomorrow to really start. Like, I’m taking two months to just lock in. So I’m really excited, and the people that have been working with now have been people that I haven’t worked with before, so it’s like they’re bringing a new sound to the album that I’ve never experimented with. … I’ve got so much to talk about. In the features, I don’t really delve into no deep sh*t. And with the album, thank God, I’ve experienced so much in the last year-and-a-half that there’s so much for me to talk about. I know my fans are gonna be excited about it.” (MTV)
