Nicki Minaj may be going pop yet again with her fourth album, at least according to producer London on Da Track. But, as we’ve seen in the past, that hardly means that she will let go of the rap throne.

Nicki confirmed just as much yesterday (September 4) when she released “The Pinkprint Freestyle” — yet even more proof that we’re all her sons. There are allusions to Nicki’s superstar status all over, from the ruthless one-liner referencing the gorilla killed at the Cincinnati Zoo (“I’m dragging these hoes like Harambe did the kid“) to the interpolation of “Paper Planes” by M.I.A., with whom she once shared the Super Bowl stage.

“You don’t talk about Nicki in the past tense / unless I fly past that ass in a fast Bent’,” she sneers. Listen to “The Pinkprint Freestyle” below.
