Two days ago Nicki dropped single and video for track "Lookin' Ass N*gga" just in time for Valentines day. The track in itself talks really slick like the Nicki we all love, though the video was just a stir to the controversial, it was the album art that have all of social media bubbling over with the world of men going cock out because Nicki is talking recklessly. Check out the track and video below.
As a woman I think if people are going to react that way to this track, I feel like they should react that way to all of the rappers that degrade woman calling them bitches and whores along with every other derogatory term in the webster's dictionary. As artist part of their job is to create music that will push boundaries and rise uproar to controversial topics and bring conversations so that the media and haters will have a job. I don't think the album art was meant to be offensive and do I find it offensive no I honestly don't. However, I do feel like it was meant to get the reaction it's getting, so indeed in that retrospect I do find it a little tasteless that my girl Nicki would even have to dig that deep or go that far back in history. I find that the song does everything for me, it's catchy, it's Nicki and it controversial as many artist in music industry are. Yes, if it was a white person I would find it very offensive and yes we do live in a double standard world because guess what America was build that way and that's the history of this country.
The Malcolm X photo I think people are just looking for a tit in a ant because people only find it offensive because Malcom X is in a photo with the word 'N*gga' next to his head and that takes people back. I mean take out the n word and thats a perfectly find album art. I don't think Nicki meant to offend anyone, but she wanted the reaction it's getting.
Plus, Mariah Carey also dropped her single "You're Mine (Eternal)," but the single got overshadowed by Nicki's track "Lookin' Ass N*gga." Mariah dropped the video and also did some promo stop's in NYC for the single, but that didn't seem to be enough as all of social media and the web is just buzzing about the whole Nicki Minaj controversy and track. Mariah also released a remix with Trey Songz who is featured in the video as the muse. Trey also had a songful to say about Nicki's new track but that's a whole another post that's on it's way. Mariah, the song is just ok for me, but i'm tired of that same ol' sound from the "Emancipation of Mimi" album emancipate yourself darling and give us something to shake it off because the loving ain't the same and you keep on playing games. Mariah we still love you and think that you're amazing, but Nicki got this one we will see who will win when the albums drop.
Happy Valentine's Day to all you looking ass N*ggas and all you looking ass b*tches... lol
