Nicki Minaj got a lot of shit from the hip hop community when she went all ‘Starships’ on everyone, but she always vowed to get back on track and back to her rap roots on her next album, and she seems to be holding up her end of the bargain.
While I’ve only listened to her new single, ‘Pills N Potions’, once, it seems like it might be a grower. It’s a bit of an emo track, as far as these things go, but still fire on the verses and it really shows off what Nicki started off doing and what she does best: rapping. There are some layered vocals in there, as well (Nicki can actually SING, too!), so I’m intrigued, at the very least, as to what her next album is going to sound like.
