Nicki Minaj hails from Queens and she’s the closest thing Hip-Hop has to Hollywood in a female rapper but today, she’s rocking for Chicago to potentially boost the murder rate.

If nothing else, she’ll make rival Chi-town MCs throw their microphones in a six-foot ditch.

Claiming to “always have a trick up her sleeve,” Nicki unveiled a stray bullet in the form of “Chiraq,” a semi-automatic flow co-signed by Windy City resident Lil Herb a.k.a. G Herbo.

Leaving no stone unturned, Nicki addresses her recent struggle–the artwork to her single “Lookin’ Ass N***a” which distastefully used Malcolm X’s image with no real symbolism behind it. “Malcolm X daughter came at me/lookin’ ass n***as ain’t happy/rolled out with some Latin Kings and some eses in them plain khaki’s,” she blazes through the subdued beat like wildfire.

G Herbo does his thing on the anchor, giving the record the overly violent authentication it needed, coupled with the standard Midwest double time flow.

One thing’s for certain, this definitely won’t be featured on the soundtrack of her new rom-com. This type of beautiful ignorance is better reserved for the Summer Jam or Powerhouse stages.

Stream the sinister “Chiraq” below and check the gallery for all the different variations of the single artwork.
