Nicki Minaj: Surreal Feminist

I was talking with my neighbor about teaching.  He gets to teach Rhetoric of Music and he asked me if there were any narrative rap songs, to which I had a handful of classics right away:  Gin and Juice, Boys in the Hood, Just a Friend, Fresh Prince of Bel Air... (the last song, though not nearly as awesome, is engraved in the brain of every person I know born in '83).  I noticed immediately that this wasn't the most recent mode for rap and hip hop.  I also exploded a blood vessle in my brain when he asked me what is the current mode of rap and the new Kanye record made me say surreal:  contemporary rap is surreal.  This is a recent discovery of mine, so it's just surface right now but expect great things to come...

“I made a conscious decision to try to tone down the sexiness... I want people—especially young girls—to know that in life, nothing is going to be based on sex appeal. You’ve got to have something else to go with that.”

(From Kanye's Monster)
Pull up in the monster
Automobile gangster
With a bad bitch that came from Sri Lanka
Yeah I’m in that Tonka, colour of Willy Wonka
You could be the King but watch the Queen conquer
First things first I’ll eat your brains
Then I’mma start rocking gold teeth and fangs
Casue that’s what a muthafucking monster do
Hairdresser from milan, thats the monster do
Monster Giuseppe heel that’s the monster shoe
Young money is the roster and the monster crew
And I’m all up all up all up in the bank with the funny face
And if I’m fake I aint notice cause my money aint
So let me get this straight wait I’m the rookie
But my features and my shows ten times your pay
50k for a verse no album out!
Yeah my money’s so tall that my barbie’s gotta climb it
Hotter than a middle eastern climate
Find it 20 mataran dutty whine it
While it, nicki on a pit while I sign it
How these niggas so one-track minded
But really really I don’t give a F-U-C-K
Forget barbie fuck nicki she’s fake
She’s on a diet but my pockets eating cheese cake
And I’ll say boy the Chucky is Child’s play
Just killed another career it’s a mild day
Besides ‘Ye they can’t stand besides me
I think me, you and (____) menage friday
Pink wig thick ass give em whip lash
I think big get cash make em blink fast
Now look at what you just saw I think this is what you live for
Aaahhhh, I’m a muthafucking monster!
