Nicki Minaj Releases ‘Chi-Raq,’ Addresses Malcom X Controversy In Verse

Comments:  | Leave A Comment

Nicki Minaj has released an aggressive single off her upcoming album. The song, “Chi-Raq” (feat. Lil Herb), marks the first bit of promotion for “The Pink Print,” a projected followup to “Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded.”

This new song is decidedly more gritty than some of the mainstream dance-pop more recently associated with the rapper. She churns out hard-hitting wordplay over a beat by Boi-1da, Vinylz and Allen Ritter, making sure to address the controversy attached to the cover art of her “Lookin’ Ass” single: “Malcom X daughter came at me / Lookin’ ass n—-s ain’t happy.”

Whatever your thoughts on “Chi-Raq,” there’ll be more of this re-upped return to form. “I always got a trick up my sleeve,” Minaj teases in the final verse of the song. “I might give you a new trick every week until this album drop / I don’t know, I figured they wanted some more.”
