I mean to dedicate your life to someone for 12 years and be hidden and under appreciated to being called “soft” and a “pussy” must be damaging.
There is a difference from keeping your relationship private vs. keeping your relationship a secret.
She can write a whole album about their relationship, which she denied numerous times, then claim to be the victim when he leaves is crazy.
He still has yet to disrespect or humiliate her since the break up but he did speak his peace on the issue.
Yet him making one song about her means he’s “clingy” and “needs to move on”?
He thought getting engaged would help their relationship and it didn’t.
He had his fears about Meek and she denied anything was going on.
Meek stated he wanted her while they were still together and was probably talking in Nickis ear the whole time they worked on projects together.
To think this person was your friend and finding out he was plotting against you from the beginning…
He felt degraded with her dancing and kissing on other men.
She might have thought it was entertainment but he saw it as disrespect.
Then when they broke up, she IMMEDIATELY jumped into a relationship without any type of healing period that usually happens after you break up with a partner you’ve been with for 1+ years. How?
How can you claim to love someone that quickly after a relationship you’ve been in for over a DECADE has ended without blinking a false lash?
Either she is exaggerating the relationship or it was premeditated before her Safaree broke up.
She claims he cheated.
If you have been treated like shit, being called a hypeman and a bag carrier for over 5 years and she has yet to correct peoples statements, you feel as though the relationship is ending.
To have to sit there and watch men talk about fucking the woman you are in love with and her rap about fucking other men must fucking hurt.
To be there from the beginning, when Nicki Minaj was just Onika, a girl from Trinidad trying to be a rapper in Queens, you being each other’s everything, striving to be the best and make it. Then when you do make it, things change and you really can’t stop it and the only thing you can do to show her you are serious is to show her what she’s putting you through.
She cried live on air when talking about him but claims now that she’s in love with Meek and over Safaree.
She wants her fans to believe she did no wrong doing when it comes to their relationship and it is obvious and well known that she is most likely the root of their tarnished relationship.
She calls him corny and lame for expressing how he feels but she can say what she wants because she’s the superstar?
Safaree is a good man being overshadowed by some “Relationship Goals” pictures.
Girls claim they want a man with ambition, goals, loyalty, who can express the way they feel and encourage them but when they get that they throw it away for an IMAGE.
Omg sorry my fault I mixed them up! I think you're right & what if these streets = Meek Mill?? :o
here’s my lyrics interpretation:
“You’re my right hand, you’re my go to / Told me everything about you / That’s a bold move”self explanatory: they are/were pretty tight and i’m sure they talked A LOT (nicki even said in a ustream back in 2011 that she used to call drake when she was sad while with drake on the phone)
“I know that you’re out here / And there’s things you gotta go through” like dealing with her 6 years old boyfriend
“Just know that these streets just don’t love you like I do / And they never will”i don’t think he’s only talking about meek in here. i think he’s talking about every man in nicki’s life. drake loves her more than anything (his words). like, in coachella with all the engagement stories about nicki and meek breaking and them (nicki/drake) being kinda distant he could’ve played that moment on stage with nicki SO differently but he made sure to reminder her one more time how much he loves her and misses her. IT’S JUST SO CLEAR TO ME
“But I swear you gotta chill / You wanna grip Benz wheel / And I know you can’t wait / You dream big and sleep late / You got a lot on your plate / That’s why you’re always working out / Taking pictures of yourself / You don’t see anybody else / You’re like oh well / You’re like fuck it oh well /My past behind me like a pony tail” in here he’s just talking about how much she wants to conquer as a black woman and a rapper in the industry and how much is going on in her life right now and how she’s trying to focus more on her and her career and leave her past behind which i think it’s a sutil reference to all the SB drama
“Ok I know you want the Audi / I know you want to go to Maui / You and all your girlfriends / The ones you never bring around me” i’ll just quote nicki on this one: bitches might wanna get in your pants, i don’t know if i’mma let em
“Cause you don’t trust me like your last man“ again, i think it’s a SB reference. he’s saying nicki doesn’t trust him to be around other women but SB trusted him enough to watch his girl do lap dances on another man
“Did he open doors for ya? / Buy the things he can’t afford for ya / Cause he must have did a lot for ya / I just fell back with it” SB saying he helped nicki to write her raps
“And now your past is behind you / Like the car with the strap in it / Thank god that’s finished / Cause now it’s back to business / Any more Hennessy and you’re past the limit” self explanatory
“You told me about the picture / Now you have to send it / I would never put you on blast when I get it“ clearly talking about nicki’s leaked nude photos
i can be TOTALLY wrong, but i do think the song is for nicki.
I’m a huge fan of Nicki but Meek is starting to get under my damn skin, before all this happened I was okay with him but now he doing too much. People expect Meek to do and say whatever he want without consequences. Obviously Drake and Safaree was going to have a come back after what the dude done tweeted. I’m on Drake and Safaree side, that’s just me.
Nicki Minaj opened her 2012 song “Freedom” with the lines “They never thank me for opening doors, but they never thanked Jesus when he died on the cross/… My career’s been a pink print”. Even for its spectacular hubris, it wasn’t a hit and since seems to have been largely forgotten. Though the song may be just barely living on only in the Related Videos section of the “Anaconda” music video, Minaj hasn’t let go of the sentiment. Playing off of the title of Jay Z’s seminal album The Blueprint, Minaj is attempting to define her own career with her third studio album, The Pinkprint. While she caught the public’s attention with neon wigs and relatively radio-friendly pop, she’s now dropping all pretences. The notoriously private Minaj shows off a side far more personal than she has ever before, finally allowing—or, possibly, forcing—audiences to know who she really is.
Minaj lays all of her cards on the table from the very beginning with the opening track “All Things Go”. She reveals shockingly intimate details of her personal life, including growing distant from her family as a result of her fame, feeling indirectly responsible for the murder of her cousin, and lamenting an abortion she had as a teenager. The laundry list of secret anxieties is ended with Minaj, simultaneously confident and enervated, stating “This is the Pink Print”. It’s effectively an announcement that she’s not just Nicki, a.k.a the Female Weezy, a.k.a. Barbie, a.k.a Sit-on-your-favorite-rapper’s-faceanymore—she’s purely and honestly Onika Maraj.
But, luckily for us, being Onika Maraj also means going back to her origins in hardcore rap. While she may not be as focused on traditional rapping on the album as singles “Anaconda” and “Only” might have implied, Minaj is still spitting more than she has in years, particularly on “Want Some More” and the deluxe edition’s “Shanghai”. It should come as no surprise that the standout of the album is “Feeling Myself”, the aggressively confident Beyonce collaboration. As seen also on this summer’s “***Flawless” remix, Beyonce is at her sharpest when she’s collaborating with Minaj.
Nicki’s audacity seems to have a sort of mystical influence over Queen Bey, allowing her to express an aggression that hasn’t been seen since her Destiny’s Child days. Other notable tracks are the hypnotic “Get On Your Knees”, which features her “Bang Bang” collaborator Ariana Grande, and “Trini Dem Girls”, an infectious dancehall-inspired track that throws back to Minaj’s Trinidadian roots.
But, as evidenced by the 16-minute movie accompanying the album, the crux of it is the four bookending pop ballads (“I Lied”, “The Crying Game”, “Bed of Lies”, “Grand Piano”) that were most likely written in response to her breakup with hype man/producer/general sidekick Safaree Samuels. It’s strange to hear Minaj singing a love song, almost jarringly so. It speaks volumes of her self-proclaimed reinvention that, on the same album on which she said she’d let Drake and Lil Wayne eat her ass at the same time, the most shocking part of it is Minaj admitting fault. Regardless of the musical merit of Minaj’s attempts at earnest pop, they humanize her and provide a necessary relief from the impenetrable neon facades that were her previous two albums. It’s hard to imagine that there could be an actual human male who isn’t Drake that could be bold enough to ask Nicki Minaj on a date, but here we are with half an album’s worth of songs about one. It’s a level of vulnerability that calls her Queens bravado in tracks “Feeling Myself” into questioning. It’s a level of vulnerability that makes me want to hit pause and just give her a hug. The album provides no closure with its final song, “Grand Piano”, an open wound of a pop ballad that succinctly punctuates Minaj’s newfound candidness.
Even for a performer as talented as she is, it’s hard to pull of sincerity in a candyfloss Bride Of Frankenstein wig. Though the album as a whole isn’t so much a notable addition to the rap and pop history books, it is a strange and astounding look into the private life of one of the world’s biggest superstars. The Pinkprint isn’t just defining Minaj as an artist—it’s defining her as a person.
