Nicki Minaj: ‘Roman in Moscow’ Released as a Teaser
Nicki Minaj is capping off the first week of December with a big bang. After earning a nomination for Best New Artist for the 2012 Grammy Awards, news broke that a Barbie doll was being crafted in her likeness for charity, then she accepted the Rising Star Award from Billboard magazine earlier today (Dec. 3). To top it off, the first song to come off her sophomore LP, ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded,’ debuted as well.
Produced by Street Runner and SAROM, the song, which was released via iTunes as just a teaser, sees the Queens native rapping as her alter ego Roman Zolanski. She takes shots at peers in the hip-hop community and serves up animated verses over the schizophrenic beat in the process.
“I told you bitches last year I’m a rap bitch nightmare/ That’s why I call you Buzz Lightyear/ Because the time you buzzin’, bitch, you gon’ have white hair/ Anyway, I’m on that new s—/ Every trend, I introduce it,” she rhymes.
Minaj’s ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded’ debuts on Feb, 14, 2012 — Valentine’s Day.
