Who says you can’t be all things to all people? In the space of about 10 days, Nicki Minaj has been Justin Bieber‘s pool party playmate in “Beauty and a Beat,” the provocative partner to Cassie in their video for “The Boys,” and now she’s going back to her roots in the video for her “street single” from Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, “Come On A Cone.”

Watch the video up top, then head after the jump for more details.

The song, which sees a characteristically deranged Minaj spewing swag, contains a brilliant lyric about Vogue editrix Anna Wintour — “When I’m sitting with Anna, I’m really sitting with Anna / Ain’t a metaphor punchline, I’m really sitting with Anna.” Fittingly, the video does a tidy job of exploring that high/low lifestyle tension, intercutting footage of Minaj rapping on the street with her crew with shots of her sitting front-row with Kim Kardashian at a fashion show and performing in front of thousands of people.

But most importantly, the video also teases the re-release of Roman, which hits retailers November 19. Watch the clip above.
