With the exception of Drake’s 2016 album Views, the classic YMCMB trio have all had us waiting years for a formal album release.
I don’t know about my fellow fans, but I am getting a bit antsy for More Life, The Carter V, and more following Nicki’s “Bom Bidi Bom” and “Regret In Your Tears.”
Following multiple social media posts with the three of them, and the two singles “No Frauds” and “Changed It” were released soon after.
Apparently these two singles were created in response to Remy Ma’s singles with lyrics and cover art directed at Nicki. Although Remy was extremely clear in her attacks on Nicki, it is a bit surprising that Nicki even acknowledged her attack.
This minor feud has only benefitted Nicki, by increasing her album sales. Nonetheless, Nicki enlisted the help of here two go-to YMCMB brothers, and as always, the trio put out some great tracks.
Nicki takes a subtle approach with her response diss track (Shether.)
She does not directly say Remy’s name, but addresses the majority of her points against Nicki. Along with ghost writers, kids and before and after surgery pictures.
Of course she also has Drake and Wayne backing her up at the end of the track, just for good measure and to flex her connections, I mean who wouldn’t?
This track (Changed It) does not seem to have a direct purpose, other than general reflection on the changes that these two artists have created.
Both have definitely been influential in the world of hip-hop. Nicki’s comments on education and selling her clothing line naturally stick out to me.
She is constantly encouraging her fans to stay in school and have the background and drive to support themselves.
As well as her conscious decision to sell her clothing line in stores that her fans can afford.
What we're listening to.
