Hear Nicki Minaj's New Song 'The Pinkprint Freestyle'
Nicki Minaj fans, rejoice! The rapper dropped a new song -- titled "The Pinkprint Freestyle" -- out of nowhere Saturday afternoon on SoundCloud.
The nearly six-minute track finds Minaj delivering rapid-fire verses over the beat of Young M.A.'s "Ooouuu" and later includes parts of M.I.A.’s hit “Paper Planes.” She begins the song by giving a shout-out to Lil Wayne before referencing Harambe the gorilla and comparing herself to Jay Z.

“It’s the female Jay,” she raps. “I’m a brand according to what retail say/ Yeah, my tours be selling out on pre-sale day/ plus I got the title ‘Queen,’ press replay.”
Fans haven’t heard new music from Minaj since her 2014 album, The Pinkprint, which featured hits like “Only,” “Anaconda” and “Truffle Butter.” She recently appeared in Ariana Grande’s “Side to Side” video and performed the song alongside the pop singer on the 2016 MTV VMAs last month.
