Nicki Minaj – “Blazin'” (Feat. Kanye West)

Maybe Kanye West’s “Monster” was your introduction to Nicki Minaj. Even if your intro came earlier (via her Beam Me Up Scotty mixtape or one of her other guest appearances), none of her stuff since has lived up to her “Monster” turn. Or “Monster” was the exception? Maybe this leak from her upcoming LP, Pink Friday will help you decide. That’s a sample of “Don’t You (Forget About Me)” in the background. Listen at

Pink Friday is out 11/22 via Young Money/Universal. It’s the same release date as West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
