when i heard nicki minaj was coming out with a new album,
one inspired by jay’s “the blueprint”,
i will admit i was pretty excited.
i enjoyed that whole blueprint movement,
and it serves a lot of memories from high school,
so i KNEW nicki minaj was about to deliver.
she immediately dropped singles to prepare us for this new era.
“lookin’ ass pineapple” and “boss ass bitch” i was feelin’ type heavy.
she is spittin’.
when she rapped on the lackluster “anaconda”,
i was scratching my head with the sour face.
even though i loved “pills and potions”,
i was really eh for “bed of lies”.
my hype for this album kinda went out the window.
one of my readers sent me the album to review and well…
…BUT i do have some critiques.
the one thing that irks me about this album is the constant “whitney-ing”.
she replaced her nauseating pop tracks,
if you count “the night is still young”,
with now “that pineapple hurt my soul” caterwauling.
i can do without “i lied”,
“bed of lies”,
and “mona lisa”.
now what i love…
she came with some big features like beyonce and ariana grade tho.
while “feelin myself” with beyonce is catchy as hell,
i actually prefer “get on your knees” with ariana grande.
nicki got ariana out here talmbout getting her pussy eaten.
i like a wolf on his knees so we all have something in common there.
my other favorites are:
“the crying game”
“buy a heart” feat. meek
“only” feat. drake, wayne, and breezy
four door aventador”
“favorite” feat. jeremih
“trini den girls”
“big daddy” feat. meek
“shanghai” <—- on fleek!!!!
funny enough i actually like “anaconda” and “bed of lies” as the album plays.
they definitely shouldn’t have been singles to sell this album.
again: who are her people?
while nothing has come close to “pink friday”,
and “roman reloaded” will remain a disaster we will try to forget,
“the pinkprint” is actually pretty solid.
plus she is spittin’ more.
its not a classic album as “the blueprint” since there is no:
“u don’t know”
“girls girls girls”
“heart of the city”
“all i need”
“people be talkin”
…she did come back to why the fuck we fell in love with her.
no rainbow wigs or halloween costumes.
i would give her my money with this one.
its better than “that new classic” that designer imposter got out.
