I smell a massacre Black Friday by Lil Kim

Invoking the penultimate line of Jay-Z’s verse on “Monster”. Which, of course, is a track that Nicki tore to shreds by all accounts.

Guess Kim wasn’t too impressed.

Save Me by Nicki Minaj

Subtle reference to her celebrated verse on Kanye West’s “Monster”

NICKI: Maybe reminding us of how good you can be on a mediocre track isn’t the best way to go…

But I think I like him better when he dolo Super Bass by Nicki Minaj

Also means “solo”, but “dolo” refers more to keeping things on the down low. He’s still single, but doing things with women on the DL. Or he could be going down low…as in giving Nicki head.

*Fun fact: Kid Cudi goes by the name, “Mr. Solo Dolo”… so she may be referring to him here.

Dolo is apart of the Queens laugage when they switche the d with a s becaus their was a guy who famous cause he couldn´t say “s” and said “d” instead. The most famous example is dun instead of son. She likes him better when he´s alone so they could be together. Which she explains a couple of bars down that he can jst giver a look and off the panties go.

While your reading is definitely one way of looking at this section, I can’t help but feel that this has another more subversive undertone to it. It seems to me that the way these rich men dress strikes her as immediately re-establishing the class divide between those aforementioned and those now being described. I’d also like to point out that there is no suggestion here that their money was made in any more legal a fashion than those in the first verse. Tax evasion is still rife in business, today more than ever.

I got two White Russians but we also need some drinks Blazin by Nicki Minaj (Ft. Kanye West)

A White Russian is a delicious cocktail made with vodka, kahlua, and milk or cream.

Kanye puns on the name, implying the drink but then making it clear he’s talking about sexy Russian girls.

Got two bones to pick I'mma only choose one
You might get addressed on the second album
Which means you can breathe 'til I motherfucking say so
I'm The Best by Nicki Minaj

There have been two female emcees who have been the loudest in criticizing Nicki: Lil' Kim and Keys. In this sense, Nicki has two bones to pick.

She’s saying here that she’s only going to pursue one of the conflicts at the moment: the one with Kim. Although Nicki’s thrown a couple subliminals around which could apply to Keys (bummy swag?), on tracks like “Roman’s Revenge” and “Did it on ‘Em”, Nicki refers to her nemesis as a has-been more so than a never-was.

Nicki’s saying here that she’s not going to help Keys blow up by beefing with her on her first album. Maybe if in two years, once she’s done setting the world on fire with Pink Friday, and if Keys still has some shine, Nicki will let herself get into a beef with her.

Once Roman Reloaded came about, Keys hadn’t actually gone up (if anything, she’d gone downwards), and no more came of it.

Also, when Nicki says “you might get addressed on the second album” she says album AL-BUM referring to “the bum” which is Keys.
