Nicki Minaj swore she was done with all that bubblegum pop that made up 2010’s Pink Friday. That she was going to return to her harder hip-hop roots. And with her latest track–her third off her upcoming album, The Pink Print–she proves she’s a woman of her word.
On “Chi-Raq,” Nicki once again makes it clear that she’s not to be messed with, proclaiming, “I’m a bad b—h, and I f— good.”
Though she hasn’t announced an official release date for her new album, she does promise in the song’s outro that she’s got more tracks up her sleeve. “I might give you a new trick every week until this album drops,” she teases. “I don’t know, I figured they wanted some more.”
This latest track follows her remix of Young Thug’s “Danny Glover” and her dangerously sexy clip for “Lookin Ass N***a,” which had her saying sorry (not sorry) after some felt the album art, which featured a photo of Malcolm X holding a gun, was in poor taste.
