It’s interesting to note that she went after both genders in general, so as time passed, she’s changed her stance for this year and is prepared to go after anyone, not just the male or female MC’s.

COMIC BOOK SUPER HEROINE (DC nerds rejoice)

Put all 3 words together and it actually very sneakily refers to Batman and Robin indirectly earlier in the verse by alluding to one of the most iconic storylines in all of comic book history!

Here’s an in depth explanation, that reveals the strong parallels even in her lines are structured IN THE EXACT SAME ORDER with how the story’s synopsis pans out

When analyzed this has to be the most unknown reference of all time. It makes sense when you consider her
A. Knowledge of movies (Favorite movies are Scarface, Juice, Clueless, The Devil Wears Prada, etc.),
B. Acting background
C. Possesses VAST literary knowledge
D. The most obvious hint SHE’S DRESSED AS SUPER WOMAN! ^ (Diana is close friends with Batman in the Justice League!)

A brilliant, rarer instance of litotes “Not even biological” that effectively sends the hardest impact of the message by saying they all act like “real kids” not real women. None of them are real and just act as fake as Angelica, (It is therefore EMPHASIZED even if they were “real kids”, Nicki still is the realest out of all of them, being the mother who “birthed” or “gave life back to their careers”)

Well it is true…..

4 & 5. “And you adopted” taking care of her unclaimed children by both
A. Disowning them — Nicki’s own words
B. Dissing them

Adoption implies that the kid is at a very young age and is ignorant (Therefore Azealia is explicitly talked about here, and this is true given her already prolific history of “tweefing”, calling a mother’s own kids ugly, and referring herself, along with her fans as the “Kunt Brigade”

3rd , “Prodigal Son” (Pictured above) is a Biblical phrase referring the symbolic story of a father who left his inheritance to two of his sons. The younger one (represents the sins of the Pharisees) used it to waste his life and squandered it for excess and selfishness. His father (represents God/Jesus’s forgiveness)

However she is a woman and unforgiving (mothers do scold their young), therefore using a “Goddess” analogy to further the maternity metaphor Minaj is saying her “sons” are a waste of talent, time and money, not doing anything redeemable, therefore are an embarrassment women in Hip-Hop and in general to the genre.

Son (2nd definition, Ebonic Noun) — an masculine Ebonic use by BLACK GUYS (she’s calling them ugly and look like men, the 2nd meaning of the term)

Specifically talking to (Kim as Ratatouille, Keys as a Hippo, and Azealia with a Horse Face

Her signature motif
Is used to imply she owns her “children”

Instead of saying “bitch/ho” she is surprisingly formal here and is just cutting through the bullshit to tell it like it is.
This does away with usually referring as such in feminine terms(bitch/ho) and connects with the punning of using the 2nd definition of “son” in point #2

BLACK POWER IS IN NUMBERS NOT WORDS

This pic basically describes YC’s whole verse on how the entire misguided perception of the Black community is divided on how people generalize how someone looks as behaving a sort of way by attaching a derogatory/slang word.

As a race we will always struggle and we have to acknowledge that, but we’re still human beings at the end of the day. Sometimes a word is just that.

Instead of enacting action to keep the cause going about deeper issues that humanity has to face, Black people still have the tendency to solely focus on the legitimacy of a meaningless word, rather than “walking the walk”. We spend way too much time judging our own kind based on how we should look, act, speak, etc. rather than getting everyone on the boat.

Before any pertinent problem (such as racism) we’d face before anything, the fight over “Nigger vs. Nigga” is absolutely a waste of time, because no matter what people do or DON’T DO, you can’t stop anyone from saying both words.

DEAD JOKES AREN’T FUNNY! (Black Humor)

"Kids cryin’ at the viewing, I guess it was sorta sad" (Meek Mill – In God We Trust) | accepted

Meek is using black humor with his sarcasm and disregard for dead niggas who got murked either by him or his crew, and has no remorse whatsoever for his family’s sympathies.

He’s desensitized to the effects of a funeral, especially when it’s someone who deserved to die, and his dad got killed in front of his family’s church in “Traumatized”.

To add to Flow-1’s suggestion it should be noted there are a multitude of “Food/weapon metaphors” such as Meek Mill often does in these songs for proof
“…got my hand strapped to my toast

“…banana clips make a mess

He’d also would want to be less materialistic and be natural, but fuck it, we all know those Benjamins still come from Nature itself

"Real niggas don't die homeboy, we multiply" (ScHoolboy Q – Gangsta) | accepted

He’s rephrasing part of WC legends, Nate Dogg and Xzibit’s Chorus from “Multiply”

“(We) back on line (We) came to ride
(We) build (We) stack (We) multiply
(We) stay on the grind (Until) we die

And back for mo', cause we can’t get enough”
