But before I continue let me thank my crew

from Nicki Minaj – Freedom Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Nicki loves to boast and brag, but in this song, where she reminisces about the hustle and everything in her career that has led her to be the Queen, it’s only appropriate to take the time and thank those who really helped her.

Even before Nicki was signed, she was repping Young Money/Cash Money in her songs. She follows suit here but calls out six people specifically.
