Ciara On Nicki Minaj ‘I’m Out’ Verse: ‘It’s One Of The Best Female Rap Verses Of All Time’

Published: Friday 9th Aug 2013 by David

As her closest ‘rivals’ continue to wade through a sea of struggle and pushed back release dates, Nicki Minaj continues to fly the flag for her field with a brand that’s now well and truly global.

You don’t agree?

Array

Well, you’ll have to take that up with Grammy winning songstress Ciara who has showered praise on the star, and her verse on her brand new single ‘I’m Out’.

Her estimation below!

While we’re sure most won’t agree, the fact remains that very few Female Rappers (fresh or seasoned) can boast of verses as quick witted and well executed as Minaj’s.

Basically, by creating a standard which says credibility can only ever be synonymous with being ‘the underdog’, Hip Hop finds itself downplaying the impact Minaj has had on the genre, even when faced with gems like the above.

Your thoughts?

    Hmm not sure but her VOCALZ SUCK & I STILL FEEL SHE IS LIL’ KIM 1996-2013!! Except LIL’ KIM S*** IS REAL & NOT THAT BUBBLE GUM POP B*******

    • Baduizm05 August 9, 2013

      Who told you Kim was real and Nicki was fake.
      Nicki writes all her own songs so wouldn’t that make her song more REAL to HER by default. You don’t know that much about Kim if you think she was ever taken seriously back in the day. Everyone called her a w**** and were calling LAURYN the real one.

      Her image was tarnished that people believed that urban myth about her having to have her stomach pumped after blowing Biggie’s crew.

      • MEAddiction August 9, 2013

        @Baduizm No lies were detected.

      • ASBEENISH August 9, 2013

        Girl your fave Krim is a flop, Nicki continues to win. But you can take a seat along with the other Krim stans who continue to cling on to her era. #NEXT

  2. Hellioss August 9, 2013

    As much as I appreciate Ciara, indeed this song starts so well and crumbles all the way through.
    That’s not what she deserves as a lead single for an album.

  3. FentySoSnatched August 9, 2013

    Yes Ciara, but she wasted it on your shitty song.

    • Gopit August 9, 2013

      But she obviously liked the song enough to put a verse to it, though…

  4. 212Thuggin August 9, 2013

  6. KissesForKelly August 9, 2013

    Get back to work Ciara.

  7. BeyLikeMe August 9, 2013

    This is true, but what is also true is that you did everything right this era and still flopped. That means you can’t afford to be taking random vacations.

  8. TeenageDreamer August 9, 2013

    I concur.

  9. OVODasher August 9, 2013

    Some people can actually write their OWN songs.

    • truth(the new and refined TRUTH. f*** icki she done now i just slay a b****…yew mad??) August 9, 2013

      not YOUR fav tho!! ooops..

  15. truth tea (take a sip) August 9, 2013

    It’s average.
    Nicki isn’t bad however i just feel people give her too much praise for mediocrity.
    This verse isn’t even in Nicki’s top 5 verses.
    For some impressive female rap verses check out
    Foxy Brown ‘Affirmative Action’ ‘My Life’ and the entire ‘Broken Silence’ album
    Lauryn Hill ‘Ready or Not’ or pretty much anything from her.
    Remy Ma ‘Ante Up’
    Lil Kim ‘All about the benjamins’ ‘Quiet’ ‘Mafia Land’

    • Nellz August 9, 2013

      How dare you not mention Queen Latifah or Mc Lyte up in this b****!! The motherfucking pionneers. I do agree with eveyrthing you wrote tho.

    • nicko August 9, 2013

      Lil kim doesnt write her own bars !!!!

      • GoldenBoy J August 9, 2013

        Yes she does, stop repeating everything you hear like a brainless monkey.

      • Your fave is a FLOP August 9, 2013

        No she doesn’t. Notice how she fell off right after Biggie and nobody is checking for her.

      • truth(the new and refined TRUTH. f*** icki she done now i just slay a b****…yew mad??) August 9, 2013

        B**** SHE WAS STILL ON TOP YEAR AFTER BIGGIE STUPID ASS!!! DIE!!!

      • Your fave is a FLOP August 9, 2013

        Being on top? Selling a MIXTAPE? On PAYPAL at that!

  16. QueenCeline August 9, 2013

    I can’t say she lied. Nicki’s verses have gotten back to the standard they were before PF and I think it’s because she know she slipped on PFRR.

    • channel_ROMAN August 9, 2013

      She f***** up bad on Roman Reloaded but she gave this interview stating she didn’t have time to re-write verses during the period of production. And the beats were WHACK. But her featured verses were good in the PFRR era. Out of My Mind, Get Low, Born Stunna, Take It To Head, Girl On Fire.

    • truth(the new and refined TRUTH. f*** icki she done now i just slay a b****…yew mad??) August 9, 2013

      who is celine??? and the other S*** that posted can kiss my fabulous ass

  17. CandyWarhol August 9, 2013

    Nicki is obvs at her best when she takes her time. Even she admitted she rushed Reloaded and that’s why it was so disorganized. But yeah Ciara this verse does snatch.

    • truth(the new and refined TRUTH. f*** icki she done now i just slay a b****…yew mad??) August 9, 2013

      candyWHORE stfu!!!

  18. RoyalNavi August 9, 2013

    Such a shame it went to waste.

  19. Everyone’s A Critic August 9, 2013

    Anything by Lauryn Hill.. Trina has had some good verses, Lil Kim’s Jump Off ridicules most of Nickis verses. Yes nicki is good, but her recent stuff is just waffling nonsense. Everything she rapped about on Im Out is not relevant to anyone… Did she tackle any social issues? No, heck, the verse isn’t even catchy, I remember 3 lines at best, one being “you couldn’t gt a fan if it was hanging from the ceiling” … It’s good, punchy, but I brand it “selfish music” bragging about achievements and sexual conquests instead of real topics. NEXT

    • LittleMixer August 9, 2013

      Why would she tackle social issues in a song about breaking up with your boyfriend?
      Anyway, if its social issues you want.

      • Everyone’s A Critic August 9, 2013

        This song is irrelevant in this debate! We’re discussing nicki on THIS verse, not nicki as a whole. NEXT

    • Brazilian Beyonce!!! August 9, 2013

      Lil Kims “Jump Off” remains unbothered that shita is the best female track by a female rapper…
      The Lyrics>
      The Beat>

      That ish was SICK

    • channel_ROMAN August 9, 2013

      The song is about feeling good about a breakup because you’re out having fun because you got your cake up. The verse went together with the song. F*** you trying to bring up. “F*** these petty n***** is a b**** motto”.

      • Everyone’s A Critic August 9, 2013

        I said I liked the verse. I like nicki, but this is NOT the best verse ever. Whoever disliked my comment is ever dumb or one of those overly camp “stans” that satan has spaces reserved in hell for…

  20. LANA DEL RAY STAN August 9, 2013

    And for other news lana’s summertime sadness jumped to #23 … slay them stupid ass s**** lana

    • truth(the new and refined TRUTH. f*** icki she done now i just slay a b****…yew mad??) August 9, 2013

      slay a bath you stinkn trick

  21. VisionOfMimi August 9, 2013

    Nicki needs to learn to take her time because she slays when she does.
    I’m even noticing how much her looks have improved now she’s wearing nicer wigs and letting her natural skin tone glow.

    Before it was all so horrible and confusing but now I can really see her coming for wigs again like she did with Pink. All I need from her is balance and I’ll buy the new album cos I sure as heck didn’t buy the second one.

    • truth(the new and refined TRUTH. f*** icki she done now i just slay a b****…yew mad??) August 9, 2013

      b**** hush

  22. Brazilian Beyonce!!! August 9, 2013

    Its amazing!
    … I also like
    Lil Mamas Verse in Girlfriend
    Nicki Minajs Verse in monster

    Ciara should be promoting and making deals with operation networks to promote her properly.. She’s so talented tbh

    • truth(the new and refined TRUTH. f*** icki she done now i just slay a b****…yew mad??) August 9, 2013

      did you take your meds today???

  23. JT>>>>>JC>>>>>JB August 9, 2013

    One of my faves from her but it’s not in her top ten.

  24. Nayyyy August 9, 2013

    I’m a huge ciara fan and this song was great, nicki did it justice….but why did ciara not choose living it up as the single for her and nicki? It’s pop, inspirational and sweet. It would drag the mainstream and urban community together.
    No doubt Ciara is highly talented and could dominate, but she gets too comfortable too soon.
    I’m beginning to think she does this for her fans and continues to live her life…..but she really could slay.,,living it up, overdose read my lips and DUI should be singles.
    Congrats to coco for selling over 100k copies too.

    • truth(the new and refined TRUTH. f*** icki she done now i just slay a b****…yew mad??) August 9, 2013

      girl nicki verse was WHACK as hell LOLOLOLOL chile!!!!

  25. Beyawnce August 9, 2013

    Nickis verse is good but not the best though

    • truth(the new and refined TRUTH. f*** icki she done now i just slay a b****…yew mad??) August 9, 2013

      that b**** verse was pitiful

  26. Layla August 9, 2013

    If you agree with Ciara, you must be young as hell to not know any female rappers that came before her before her.

    • truth(the new and refined TRUTH. f*** icki she done now i just slay a b****…yew mad??) August 9, 2013

      PREACH B**** PREEEEEEACHHHHH!!!!!!!

  27. Raven August 9, 2013

    I still haven’t heard any verse from Nicki that matches up to Lil Kim’s “Quiet Storm” Verse.”

    • truth(the new and refined TRUTH. f*** icki she done now i just slay a b****…yew mad??) August 9, 2013

      i haven’t heard a good from from the b**** at ALL!! she doesn’t even write her own s***…Baby does!!!

  28. Nancy Grace Stan August 9, 2013

    Foxy brown’s “Broken Silence” album and Lil kim’s “Naked Truth” album shits on Nicki’s Discovery.

    • ASBEENISH August 9, 2013

      Girl they released these albums when they were in they prime. Broken Silence is over a decade old and Naked Truth is 8 years old. And ‘Monster’ shits on most of the songs from both of the albums. And if you talking bout sales, RR sold more than both of em. And after Broken Silence it was downhill for Kim. Den in 2011, she claimed ‘Black Friday’ was the #1 seller on PayPal XD. Her next album will also flop. So stfu.

      • truth(the new and refined TRUTH. f*** icki she done now i just slay a b****…yew mad??) August 9, 2013

        and i s*** on you

  29. JER August 9, 2013

    And I suppose C-error thinks her verses are the best female vocals of all time.

  30. bran bran slower August 9, 2013

    Lil kim – benjamins
    lauryn hill- ready or not, lost ones first verse
    Nicki – monster

  31. Diamond Princess August 9, 2013

    Of all time? Girl Bye! I Can’t Anymore! Oh and Ciara please take off that lioness wig ASAP! I like the ombre short dos you’ve been rocking. Why try this ratchet mess?

  34. The Boy Toy August 9, 2013

    Her verse on Monster was THE BEST of her career!!!

  35. bow down August 9, 2013

    The verse is so good that im out is already on its way out of the hot 100

    • Ya’ll Nicki stans need to learn from the queen Lil Kim August 10, 2013

      You are out of your mind

  36. Slaylor Swift August 9, 2013

    Nicki has way better verses than the one on im out…. Like monster, bottoms up, Romans revenge etc

  37. XtinaaLovee August 9, 2013

    It is a good verse but Nicki wasted on such a shitty song.

  38. ASBEENISH August 9, 2013

    Girl listen to Nicki’s verse in Up in Flames, Romans Revenge, or Monster. She is the MC killing dis s***. #NEXT

    • Your fave is a FLOP August 9, 2013

      Thats how I see it. People listen to her mainstream stuff but her good songs where she actually spits hard, their ears fail to hear.

    • Okay August 10, 2013

      I see quite a few people mention her verse on Roman revenge being one of her best, but was it really? She got killed on that song by em, which was even a lacklustre attempt of him.. She has a lot of better verses imo.

  39. Starships August 9, 2013

    that y this h** FLOPD!!!! thinkn that tacky b**** can rap

  43. Shady365 August 9, 2013

    it’s not Nicki fault that she the only one can stick to what she say. If she say a song gone be out soon its gone be out next week it will. Unlike alot of other h*** who say it’s gone be out then push that s*** back 12 times and be rocking the stink face when that s*** don’t sell

    • truth(the new and refined TRUTH. f*** icki she done now i just slay a b****…yew mad??) August 9, 2013

    Lies & Lesbian tells darling……Ms. Ci-error ain’t going to be stupid enough to say something about Stink Friday. TGJ…just made up this story to get some hits….GTFOH!

  47. artPOOP August 9, 2013

    i’m not the biggest nicki fan; i will proudly admit that much. I will however say it like it is. nicki ABSOLUTELY KILLED that verse. She killed it! I haven’t heard a female MC go that hard into a verse since Da Brat on Lil Kim’s “Ladies Night” remix.

  48. Rosie August 9, 2013

    Too bad “one of the best female rap verses of all time” can’t keep it on the charts.

  49. Honesty August 9, 2013

    I have a couple of things to address:
    “The truth” it is so unnecessary to comment on everyone’s post rather to agree or not.
    Lil kim did not fall off AS SOON as Biggie died (how many licks, jump off, lighters up, etc) (all her albums are platinum or gold) HOWEREVER Kim’s looks/career is not looking pleasing…I am not blind to the fact her career is pretty much done.

    This Nicki minaj’s verse was good…..not HER best (monster & Romans revenge)
    And not THE best in female rap history!

    I believe nicki writes her raps, and idk about lil kim….but who cares
    Because you all Stan for Beyonce, Rihanna, Ciara and many others
    Who don’t write their music or not 100% of it

    And it’s ok to be a fan of multiple people, and to not like something and not be hating!

    Ugh these comments sometimes are so irritating

  50. Honesty August 9, 2013

    Btw way I like beyonce, rihanna, SOME of Ciara’s music…..don’t get iit twisted I’m just being real

  51. ENOUGH ONIKA (KMART QUEEN) August 9, 2013

    OMG!! Once AGAIN, where the F*CK are all the Ciara stans????!!!!!! Ya’ll STAY absent from a Ciara post and y’all are the ones who “stans” for her. No wonder she only sold 57k, instead of supporting, y’all too busy calling relevant females ugly and flops on blogs….
