OE is a Malt Liquor which has been popular amongst rappers since the ‘80’s and has been referenced in their lyrics over and over.

Nicki’s referred to herself as Queen for quite a while now as she does so again here while also claiming to be the realest female MC.

Here she shows determination to keep fulfilling her title, make new music and pretty much be in our faces which she hasn’t failed to do so far.

They’re buying rounds on rounds on rounds, why you ask?
