Last week, Nicki Minaj dropped her Lil Wayne-assisted “High School” video, which we noted was her 10,000th music video. We were just being facetious — today she dropped her 10,000th video, with the clip for “Up in Flames.” While her last one was all sexy bikini party high jinks, this one finds Minaj getting serious. There are candles, there’s piano playing, there’s time at the studio and there’s so much scowling from Nicki.
The coolest part, though, is all the sick motorcycle stunts calling to mind the old Ruff Ryders videos. As far as we can tell, they have absolutely nothing to do with the song, but we’re glad director Grizz Lee included the shots. Check it out up top.
