Okay guys, pack up your things and clear out your desk, because queen Nicki Minaj has returned to show everyone who’s really in charge of the rap game. If you haven’t noticed, this past year Miss Minaj has been ominously quiet with the news of her father passing and the birth of her newborn baby son occupying her time. But with the rap game becoming more and more TikTok influenced, the queen decided the time was right to make her grand return.
Teasing the end of her hiatus earlier this week, the legendary rapper took to IG Live in the early hours of Friday morning to announce the re-release of her debut mixtape Beam Me Up Scotty. Celebrating its 12th anniversary this year, the mixtape has never been on stream platforms, but fans have still dubbed the project as Nicki at her most raw and unapologetic. Featuring Barb favourite and cultural reset tune “Itty Bitty Piggy”, the mixtape also comes alongside three new singles – “Seeing Green” ft Drake & Lil Wayne, “Fractions” and “Crocodile Teeth”.
