First Listen: Nicki Minaj Releases A New Rap Song Titled, ‘Freedom’


Right in time for her E! reality special (the first part of which aired last night) Nicki Minaj is releasing new music. Freedom (which we saw her recording in that preview of her show) will be one of the new songs featured on Nicki’s Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded – The Re-Up and I’ve been listening to it since last night, trying to decide if I like it or not. I do like that it’s a rap song; I do like the braggadocio. And I like that the lyrics (which you can check out over at DirectLyrics) have some actual substance, even if I don’t love every line. I guess what I’m trying to say is that… I do like this song, lol! I don’t love it, but I do like it. And I’m gonna sit here and come to terms with that while y’all take a listen. What do you think? Could you get used to this Nicki Minaj? I love when she decides to be a rapper! Agh!!!

    Have to ask, did you watch the show Shannon? Someone uploaded it on Youtube and I turned it off after 10 minutes. If it was a show that is meant to represent her as some hard-working woman in hip-hop, build up her credibility then it fails on all counts.

    She comes across as ungrateful, selfish and too diva(ish). I hate what she has become, cause she goes around saying she opened doors – and perhaps she has – but her attitude appears to stink. I don’t care she went mainstream or dresses outrageously, it’s the way she presents herself when she opens her mouth that is the issue. Especially her sob story of coming to America, growing up in Queens, yet she acts/treats some people like she was born into Royalty.
