I need your help settling a debate. Is it weird for a grown man to rap along to a Nicki Minaj song? For all intents and purposes, she’s one of the greatest female rappers of all-time (if not THE greatest). Her rhymes can be witty, gangster, thoughtful or braggadocious. She even had the best verse on the song “Monster” alongside rap heavy-hitters Kanye West and Jay-Z. Still, something feels weird about rapping along with her, word for word.
I’m someone who loves knowing the words to songs and turning any track into an unwanted duet. However, I find that when I do this with a Nicki Minaj verse, I always end up saying something that I regret. Almost all her songs reference either an ex-boyfriend, how good she is in bed and at doing sexual acts with men, or some sort of claim to her “bad bitch” status. While that’s all cool for her, it’s not what I want to be shouting as a 27-year-old man. I just don’t feel right yelling about my “boy toy named Troy used to live in Detroit”.
Anyways, I suppose it’s something I need to get used to, because Nicki isn’t going anywhere any time soon. As long as she keeps pumping out tracks, Nicki will stay on top of the music industry. Especially if she keeps wearing outfits that are completely see-through and totally show off her bra and panties.
