Edge Eight: Nicki Minaj’s Most Outrageous Songs
By Lacee Shepard
Nicki Minaj is known for her collaborations, catchy songs and obscene language, which is why no one should be surprised at her new single “Stupid Hoe”, which was deemed too explicit for television networks such as BET, which seems outrageous because explicit language is the Minaj way.
To see if this new single is really more obscene than her other work, I am taking this opportunity to view her top eight most outrageous songs.
1.Did It On ‘Em
I think this is her most obscene song. The first line is laden with vulgar language and creates disturbing imagery. This song gets number one for making me cringe out of disgust.
2. Fuck You Silly
I was torn if this song beat “Did It On ‘Em”. It is just as blunt, and the only reason it is at number two is because it didn’t gross me out as much as “Did It On ‘Em”, and I’m not sure that really a compliment.
3. Stupid Hoe
I agree with BET this song probably should not be on television. Not just because of its horrible lyrics but because even for a typical Nicki Minaj song the grammar is horrible. The whole thing sounded vaguely familiar, like every 15 year-old drama queen’s Facebook fight.
4. Sex in Crazy Places
Really the name says it all. For only having a short verse in the song she made an impact. In only 12 lines she was able to bring up Disney, Stage moms, and 5th avenue apartments.
5. Va Va Voom
From what I can gather this song is about making money. Specifically making money from selling drugs. Really though any song that has the line “dirty scabies” in it deserves to be on a list like this.
6. Knock Out
I’ll admit this song is catchy. I will also admit that things are getting a little risqué toward the end of verse three.
7. Bottoms Up
If there is one thing I’ve learned, do not piss off Nicki Minaj. She will not hesitate to get violent. That’s what landed this song on the list, I’m sure parents aren’t thrilled to hear their teens listening to “then I’ma go and get my Louisville Slugger”.
8. Roman’s Revenge
Although this song is not laden with obscenities there are definite violent and angry undertones. It doesn’t help that she collaborated with Eminem on this one, which could make even the most mild of songs seem vengeful.
