4.“Don’t worry bout me and who I fire/I get what I desire, it’s my empire/And yes I call the shots I am the umpire/I sprinkle holy water upon a vampire” —“Moment 4 Life” (Pink Friday)
Like everything she does, Nicki owns every moment on this Drake-assisted track. It’s her world with her rules and not even the biggest villain can take her shine, because he will have repercussions.
5. “But your bitch at home trying to play me, I'm Nicki M Weezy F, baby/Man, fuck you and your lady, gun butt you, cause you're shady/Now which bitch want it, cause that bitch get it/I gave him to you, bitch, don't fucking forget it” —Ciara’s “I’m Out”
He’s old news if Nicki already had him. So don’t get too flattered you have him because remember— she gave him to you. He’s disposable; Nicki did what she wanted, you just got the leftovers.
6. “I’m coming for these rap bitches if they ready or not (yeah)/You know the girl, I already was hot/You tell 'em fuck a new bitch, I want a veteran spot.” —“Ease Up” (Playtime is Over)
In 2007, when Nicki Minaj was just Onika Tanya Maraj from South Side Jamaica, Queens, she knew she was ahead of the game before she even got to the top. She goes after her fellow female rap counterparts, challenging only the baddest in the game leaving the newbies like herself behind. Because she already knew she’s “The type to get right, stay in the limelight.”
7. “If you was as real as me/You would never let another girl sit in your throne/I done put the choke hold on now/They screaming, "Nicki leave me alone!" —“Go Hard” Ft. Lil Wayne (Beam Me Up Scotty)
Nicki doesn’t care who you are, where you're from and what you claim you’re made of. Do not get in her way. Before you know it, you’ll be under her raft. And she won’t let go. Lil Wayne reminds her that she “Gotta make these bitches know” her “Just like bobby know water.”
