Nicki, Nicki, Nickiiiiiiiiiiiii!!!!!!!

Many of you have been anticipating the comeback of the Queen Nicki (myself included), and can I just say how overwhelmed I am?! This week the Queen herself, blessed us with two songs, “Barbie Tingz” and “Chun- Li,” which have already climbed the charts to the top two spots on iTunes and Apple Music. Now originally, Nicki was supposed to drop her two singles the day that Cardi B dropped her first studio album, but as one of the best female rappers in the game today, Nicki wanted to see Cardi’s win with her music climbing the charts and flourishing. Ever since the Pinkprint, I’ve been begging for more, but THIS by far, has exceeded my expectations, especially seeing for myself that Nicki wrote all of this by herself. You know what that means… NO GHOSTWRITER! Miss Nicki, on behalf of the fandom, YOU DID THAT!

Although it is very clear that Miss Onika Maraj snatched many of our edges and stole the show with her much anticipated singles, the significance of her new music goes far beyond the charts. This is a moment where Nicki can finally break her silence about all the fake music industry beef between her and hot and upcoming rappers like Cardi B and Chicago’s very own, Cupcakke. Not to mention Remy Ma, who rightfully earned another diss track, as if Nicki doesn’t shade her enough in the first part of “Barbie Tingz.” Nicki doesn’t hesitate to mock Remy Ma’s “Are You Dumb” line from “ShETHER” with:

How you still dissin’, still can’t find some hits? (Okay)

Was it worth it, dummy? I ain’t mind a bit

Still on that show gettin’ no chips, time to dip”

The point is, in a music industry that praises male rappers that only limit themselves to “mumble rap,” female rappers are always being pinned against each other. Rather than tearing these very talented and successful women down, the industry needs to make room for these women and their bars. There is enough room for Nicki, Cardi, Cupcakke, and any other woman that wants to make music and hip hop history. Nicki is in her prime and no one, not even one-hit wonder Remy Ma and the industry, can get in the way. Whether she’s silent or outspoken, let Nicki keep doing what she’s doing. Nicki, you’re doing great sweetie!
