Nicki Minaj Puts Her Own Sharp Spin on Drake and Meek Mill’s ‘Going Bad’


Nicki Minaj dropped two freestyles on her should current Queen Radio dispatch — and one in every of them takes goal at Drake and Meek Mill.

The rapper has used her Beats 1 radio present to supply up her aspect of the story on the common, both straight-up, as she did when she addressed her tension with Cardi B final fall, or in track, as she does this week. On Saturday (Feb. 2), Minaj launched two freestyles: "Barbie Drip" pulls from Lil Baby and Gunna's "Drip Too Hard," and "Barbie Goin Bad," which has her rhyming over Meek Mill's collaboration off his newest LP, Championships, with Drake.

"Going Bad" was the highest-riser of the Championships tracks on the Hot 100 and debuted at No. 6 on the chart in December, and is the product of Meek Mill and Drake bringing their years-long feud to an finish. The beef — which began when Meek accused Drake of leaning on ghostwriters again in 2015 — was formally squashed again in September after Drake introduced Meek out on stage.

Minaj and Meek had been courting when the Drake vs. Meek Mill row was at its peak, and with "Barbie Goin Bad," she dusts off the drama and goes in: she boasts about her success ("I bought extra slaps than Aretha") earlier than citing Meek's authorized drama and the way she supported him earlier than others did ("I used to be within the courtroom, no Jays and Beys/Made her change her thoughts within the choose chamber, sleeze"). 

She then brings up ghostwriting — "Yeah, I bought the juice and I'm takin' him on a tour/Imitating Nicki whereas your ghostwriter dissin' me/Leave for 2 weeks, I bought all of my infants missin' me" — winking on the root of the preliminary concern. 

Before she wrapped the freestyle, Minaj revealed that new music is on its method as effectively: she casually talked about that her label needed her to get shifting on her "fifth thing-thing," presumably her fifth studio album, and that she could drop a brand new freestyle each week earlier than her subsequent recorded effort arrives.
