Nicki Minaj has finally released her studio album Queen. The album arrives after much hoopla regarding its release date and tracklist, but now it seems, Minaj is getting attention for the song “Barbie Dreams,” where she takes aim at ex-boyfriend Meek Mill and several other male rappers.
On “Barbie Dreams,” which flips the instrumental and concept of The Notorious B.I.G.’s 1994 track “Just Playing (Dreams),” Minaj rattles off bars that mock previous relationships with Mill and Drake, who she’s rumored to have dated in the past, and younger emcees like Desiigner, Tekashi 6ix9ine, and Young Thug. Preview the track below and check out all the lyrical references she makes after the jump.
“Drake worth a hundred milli, always buying me s**t,” she raps. “But I don’t know, the p**sy better if he’s crying and s**t.” Drake and Minaj have had a complex relationship over the years, as the two were rumored to have been an item around 2010, when they got “married” on Twitter and appeared as a couple in the music video for the latter’s single “Moment 4 Life.”
Minaj’s attack is even more surprising given that Drake sampled her on his latest album, Scorpion, and the two recently appeared on Instagram together, suggested that they had mended fences.
“Meek still be in my DMs, I be having to dump him,” she raps about Mill. “I used to pray for times like this / Face a*s when I f**k him.” Mill and Minaj split up at the beginning of 2017, and the fallout of their relationship was publicly messy. The two emcees dissed each other regularly, and Mill even sided with Remy Ma with Ma feuded with Minaj last summer.

“Man, Uzi is my baby, he ain’t takin’ an L / But he took it literally when I said “go to hell,” Minaj spits. The punchline here is a play on when Uzi Vert told his fans that they’re “going to hell with him” at the 2018 Wireless Festival. Minaj and Uzi Vert have collaborated on the track “The Way Life Goes.”
Used to f**k with Young Thug, I ain’t addressing this s**t / I caught him in my dressing rooms stealing dresses and shit,” she says. “I used to give this n**ga with a lisp [?] and s**t / How you want the p**sy? / Can’t say your s’s and s**t. Minaj’s verse pokes fun at Thug’s controversial style, and the fact that he often wears women’s clothing. Minaj and Thug previously collaborated on the song “Anybody.”
“I remember when I used to have a crush on Special Ed / Shoutout Desiigner, ’cause he made it out of special ed,” she raps. “You wanna f**k me, you gotta give some special head / ‘Cause this p**sy had these n**gas on some special meds / Like Mike Tyson, he was biting my s**t.” Minaj appeared on the remix to Desiigner’s breakout single …read more
