Young Money’s Nicki Minaj is back on her music grind. The hip-hop heavyweight has surprised the world by coming through on fellow musician Doja Cat‘s “Say So” remix.
Last night, both Nicki Minaj and Doja Cat shocked fans with their unexpected collaboration. The remix is a revamped version originally featured on Cat’s 2019 Hot Pink sophomore album.
The new spin on the retro-grooving pop song features Minaj taking on a verse and also closing out the remix, which wraps around Doja Cat’s original hook and rap verse. “Every time I take a break, the game be so boring/Pretty like Naomi, Cassie, plus Lauryn,” Minaj raps on her verse. “They don’t understand the back talk, I’m foreign/When they think they top the queen, they start fallin’.” (Rolling Stone)
Nicki uses her verse to go in-in on her enemies. The rap superstar puts respect on her own lyrical ability and makes ample real-life references.
Every time I take a break, the game be so boring
Pretty like Naomi, Cassie, plus Lauren
Spittin’ like Weezy, Foxy, plus Lauryn
Ball like the ram, see, now that’s Gordon
They don’t understand the bag talk, I’m foreign
When they think they top the queen, they start fallin’
Word to my ass-shots, I’m so cheeky
Got ’em tryna palm my a** like young Keke
Yes, I’m ghetto, word to Gepetto
Plus I’m little, where’s my stiletto?
Tell Mike Jordan, send me my Retros
Used to be bi, but now I’m just hetero
Ain’t talkin’ medicine, but I made him more fien’
Ever since I put the cookie on quarantine
He know this thing A1 like a felony
All he gotta do is say the word like a spelling bee
Wait, There’s More
Nicki doesn’t stop there. The hip-hop heavyweight also fires shots at anyone worried about her body.
You coulda said so
Boy, you shoulda said so
Say so, say so
I got dressed just to sit in the house
People with the least always doin’ the most
I’m countin’ money while he suckin’ my toes
Real nasty with them balls, all net, yeah, I’m gross
Why you talkin’ ’bout who body fake?
With all the fillers in your face, you just full of hate
That real a** ain’t keep your n*gga home
Now you lookin’ silly, that’s word to silicone
