Nicki Minaj Has Turned Your Favorite Rappers Into Puppets In ‘Barbie Dreams’ Video

The summer of Nicki Minaj continues. Fresh off a contentious weekend with Cardi B — one that apparently culminated in Cardi throwing a shoe at her — Nicki took to her Queen Radio show yesterday to both address the incident and reveal that a video for “Barbie Dreams” was about to drop.

Then the “Barbie Dreams” video did drop. But who knew it would feature some of the biggest rappers of the 2000s rendered in puppet form?

It makes sense, in a way: Nicki spends the song deconstructing why everyone from Lil Wayne, 50 Cent, Drake, her own ex-fiancé Meek Mill, Quavo, Rae Sremmurd, and more either can or cannot get with her. (Spoiler: None can.) Weezy, DJ Khaled, Tekashi69, and more get turned into puppets as Nicki raps the song in a series of staggering wig and costume changes.

The “Barbie Dreams” clip was directed by storied auteur Hype Williams. Right when the beat changes for Nicki to deliver her fierce last verse, the puppets wisely all disappear, leaving the rapper alone at the center of her own creation.

This new video comes just a few days after Nicki popped up in the visual for the alternate version of K-pop group BTS’s “Idol,” rocking similarly colorful and striking hair choices.

If you’re keeping track at home, this one marks two puppet-centric rap videos in two weeks, if you count Kanye and Lil Pump’s surreal fantasy “I Love It” as an at least puppet-adjacent visual.

Check out “Barbie Dreams” above, and make sure you tune into the next episode of Queen Radio. They seem to just keep getting wilder.

Nicki Minaj Says Meek Mill Is Still In The DMs On ‘Barbie Dreams’

Nicki Minaj’s Queen is finally here, and the album’s third song, “Barbie Dreams,” is a doozy.

The scathing track samples and interpolates 1994′s ”Just Playing (Dreams)” by The Notorious B.I.G., which infamously saw Biggie going after numerous actresses and singers. The content of the song was wildly misogynistic 24 years ago, and it still is in 2018 — which makes Nicki’s remake all the more welcome. Biggie’s hook, “Dreams of fucking an R&B bitch,” is replaced with Nicki’s, ”Dreams of fucking with any these little rappers.”

Meek Mill, Minaj’s ex-boyfriend, catches the song’s most significant swipe. In the first verse, she spits, “Meek still be in my DMs, I be having to duck him / I used to pray for times like this / Face ass when I fuck him.”

Nicki and Meek haven’t seen eye to eye in quite a while. In a May interview on “The Breakfast Club,” Mill opened up about how he felt when the Queen rapper commented on his incarceration.

“I wasn’t feeling that,” Mill said. “She shouldn’t have said nothing. And we leave it at that. I don’t feel no way. She know I wasn’t feeling that.”

The Philadelphia MC isn’t the only rapper Nicki mentions in the new song. Another high-profile lyric is about her YMCMB labelmate, Drake. “Drake worth a hundred milli, always buying me shit / But I don’t know, the pussy wet or if he crying and shit,” Nicki declares. She also claims that she caught Young Thug in her dressing room, “stealing dresses and shit,” and jokingly admits Karruenche thinks, “I’m tryna give the coochie to Quavo.”
