I fly with the stars in the skies
I am no longer trying to survive
I believe that life is a prize
But to live doesn’t mean you’re alive
Don’t worry ’bout me and who I fire
I get what I desire, it’s my empire
And yes I call the shots, I am the umpire
I sprinkle holy water upon the vampire
In this very moment I’m king
In this very moment I slay Goliath with a sling
In this very moment I bring, put it on everything
That I will retire with the ring
And I will retire with the crown, yes
No, I’m not lucky, I’m blessed
Lyrics from one of my favourite Nicki songs, Moment for Life. I love love Nicki. However, I can’t help worrying about her a bit. I feel like something went wrong with her somewhere along the line. When she started off, she was so creative and killed it. Don’t get me wrong, I still think that compared to the other ladies in the game, she’s still top two and not two 😉. However, I just wish she would have evolved somehow and matured and become a little more age appropriate you know? I feel like before she “retired” she was somehow trying to compete with the Cardi’s of the world. This is something she really did not need to do because they have nothing on her anyway🤷🏾♀️ She also seems to have been going through some top tier stress over the past few years and, in my humble opinion, her choice in partners is questionable at best. Anyhoo, I hope this time off will help her centre and find herself again.
What I love about Nicki’s raps is, if you actually listen to what she’s saying, the clever word play and crazy metaphors. This is unlike most of the other rappers or indeed musicians in general these days whose lyrics really make no sense at all.
Without further ado, let’s jump right into my favourite songs from Onika. Enjoy!
My Chick Bad
If my memory serves me correctly, this was the song that introduced me to Miss Minaj.
Moment For Life
Poor Drake. I feel there was a time when he was truly in love with Nicki. In my opinion, I think he really would have been a better fit for her compared to some of the guys she’s dated. *Sigh*
I Am Your Leader
Right by My Side
These birds copy every word, every inch
But gang gang got the hammer and the wrench😜
Remember earlier when I was saying I wish Nicki would have evolved and matured with her music? What she did with the Pinkprint movie is exactly what I meant. I was hoping we’d see more of this sort of thing from her. I love these three songs from her.
Also, her perfume The Pinkprint is one of my absolute faves. Unfortunately I can’t find it anymore and have a tiny bit left😥. If anyone knows where I can find some either in Harare or Joburg, please do let me know😊
The Pinkprint Movie
Willy Monfret and Boris Kodjoe are both looking fine as f😜😜k in these music videos!!
At the end of it all, the fact remains that I love Nicki and her music. I really hope she didn’t leave the music industry for good. I really hope to see back bigger and better sooner or later!
