Nicki Minaj Says She’s Going Back to Hip Hop Roots On New Album, ‘The Pink Print’

blame it on Shake April 22, 2014

Listening to Nicki on YG’s “My Nigga (Remix),” Young Thug’s “Danny Glover,” YMCMB’s “Senile” and her tracks “Lookin’ Ass” and “Chi-Raq” with Lil Herb, it’s no secret that she’s back on the rapping tip. But will this carry on to her new album, The Pink Print?

Sitting down with MTV to promote her new film, The Other Woman, Nicki says that The Pink Print is her return to her hip hop roots.

I went so far to the other side that there’s only one place to go from there. You can either continue doing costumes or you can just say, ‘Hey guess what? This will shock them even more. Doing nothing will shock them even more.’

The tracks on Pink Print are back to my hip-hop roots. And I don’t think it’s something that I’m necessarily trying to do. As soon as I started working on my new album, that’s just the songs that I’ve been writing.

She also stated that every song won’t be on the same page as “Lookin’ Ass” and “Chi-raq” but she promises we won’t get any bullshit like “Starships” or that “Super Bass” fuckery…

  • Hmmmm!!!!! Was she dope to begin with?

  • Translation:
    White America ain’t really like me as much as I thought they did.
    (if the price right)

      White America loves her…she will probably take a sells hit for a less pop, more hip hop-hop oriented sound, I don’t think she has anything to gain as far as popularity and money goes going this route however I do agree on some level she probably is concerned with her credibility within the hip-hop sphere. More power to her, I’d rather rap/hip hop from her than something like super bass, though I care very little either way.

      • “White America loves her”
        When she was a judge on American Idol, the show’s ratings plummeted. I don’t care enough to google the particulars n’ whatnot but I think the show had its worst ratings ever when she was a judge.
        (White)America wasn’t goin’ for that Nicki/Mariah feud or whatever.

        RIPiss to me for responding to my own comments. That’s loser shit. Bout to go take a nap with a fuckin’ plastic bag over my head now n’ shit.

          If she come out rapping like she did on Monster and Romans Revenge for a whole album? Fools aint gonna be able to front without looking like haters. I can understand hip hop heads hating on Nicki cause I myself didnt like the bitch when she first came out but over time, its like certain lines you gotta respect if they just dope bars and she got a few at this point.

            Her first album was classic IMO

          • marty mcfly

            I never heard her albums, I just heard individual songs she drops but she can spit when she wants to though. I’ll give her that much. Im just saying if she puts out a dope hip hop album that would be interesting.

        • Mez D

          Idk I think white america does love her. American Idol’s ratings are still tanking after she left and was before she joined that show is just dying.
          And she was all over Ellen and morning shows and shit superbass and starships were huge.
          I agree if anything shes taking a loss by doing purely hip-hop.

    • Goldberg brain

      “White America ain’t really like me as much as I thought they did.WASSUP, NIGGAS” LMFAO!!!!! Exactly what i was thinking

      I’m glad that pop trash (Her 2nd album) blew up in her face!

    • marty mcfly

      White america aint like her? Idk about that cause this bitch is worth like 100 million dollars with only 2 albums. It would seem white america love her like she’s princess Diana at this point.

    • marty mcfly

      What real be really fucked up is if she makes a rap album and comes out rapping better then the men do. I dont know if she can or can not but the skills is somewhere in this broad.

    • marty mcfly

      What WILL be really fucked up…

  • SpeakingHarshTruth

    At this point she could make a full album of queef sounds and her lil Thotlet army would buy it regardless.

    • Ace

  • Joe Kerr

    • datbul

  • LXRD

    Lmfaoooo so I’m the only nigga that actually happens to like Super Bass.

  • Goldberg brain

    I thought SuperBass was pretty dope!

    Starships on the other hand was pop trash!

  • Jae Brown

  • She too late… I was kinda digging her before she signed, but I found myself less & less interested in her music (unless she nekked)…idc about her anymore

  • Chris Brown
