Mizz Nicki Minaj has just unveiled the explicit clip for “Beez In The Trap,” a song about, um, being in the trap, from her not at all insane o’clock sophomore record, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded.
The Benny Boom-directed clip for Nicki’s latest…single (Is it even a single? Who knows–everything’s a single with this era!) sees the multi-talented singer/rapper/dick-in-your-facer dancing dirty, serving body and stacking bills up in the club with sexy ladies in a very throwback ’90’s rap video sort of way.
The fashions, however, are thoroughly 22nd century Minaj: a chlorine green wig, bright blue eyeshadow–you know, the works. Plus, there’s a rather severe gyration in a leopard onesie. I’d call her brave, but the bitch clearly stole my Saturday night look.
Oh, and there’s also an appearance by newcomer 2 Chainz, whose verse includes some rather fantastic rhymes about potential career opportunities and spending dollars on fancy items, including my all-time favorite reference ever: “True Religion trousers.” I am very impressed!
So like, “Beez In The Trap” bumps hard and the video makes me want to pound the alarm and all, but where’s the clip for “HOV Lane”? Or “Whip It”? Or…the current single, “Starships”? I know it’s hard to get a starship out on loan, but still…
On a related note, I got to watch Nicki perform and then awkwardly stand next to her at the R Lounge at yesterday’s Nokia’s Lumia 900 event in Times Square. It was, as we say in the industry, “a hoot.”
Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded was released on April 3. (iTunes)
