This makes two new Nicki Minaj videos in two weeks. The YMCMB rapper/American Idol judge drops a video for “Up In Flames” off of her Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded – The Re-Up album.
No mansions with big @ss pools and kicking it in a bed with Lil Wayne for this one. Instead, you get images of Onika mean mugging the camera, sitting at a piano with a bunch of lit candles and rapping in the studio, as well as guys performing stunts on motorcycles. The darkly themed Boi-1da and The Maven Boys pretty much required such aesthetics.
“B-tches ain’t got punchlines or flow, I got both and an empire also/Sell out shows out in Norway Oslo, this is the re-up, better cop it while the costs low,” spits Nicki. This is definitely more “mixtape” Nicki Minaj. Are you impressed? Let us know in the comments.
