Dancer/choreographer Casper Smart is the latest addition to Nicki Minaj‘s creative team this year, called on to join Laurieann Gibson to help bring the rapper’s vision to life with new single ‘Anaconda‘!

Featuring appearances from British fitness model David Mcintosh, and scenes akin to 2010’s ‘Massive Attack’, the video was teased via behind the scenes footage unveiled by the performer minutes ago.

    I’m a just say that Nicki fooled all of us when she said this album would be more Hip Hop and less pop…… and she releases two singles “Pills N Lotions” and “Ana….I can’t” I can’t with her. She is starting to remind me of Azealia Banks…. Example: Azealia said “Yung Rapunxel” was about fighting the system and freedom but all she is talking about in the song is her cl!t and all sorts of randomness. Y’all better get on some real sh!t, real quick because I’m actually rooting for both of them…….. well partially. 😉

      YASS BISHHHHHHHH! so true, iggy done derailed nicki’s so called hip hop direction for ‘The Pinkprint.’ smh. I stan for her but this is utter bullSh*t. And never talk about azealia when you’re talking about Nicki Minaj! She doesn’t fit lol.

    Chile nicki is a disgrace taking this classic song and redoing it to sound like this trash. Chasing pop number ones again I see after saying the album will be more hip hop.

    Thank god Kim is about to storm again. Real hip hop. Not this Katy perry bubblegum rap crap.

  5. Realest August 7, 2014

    How are you labeling your album “the pink print” in reference to classic Jay-Z album “the blue print” when:

    1.) your album cover was more interesting/exciting/overshadowingthen the actual song

    2.) the video is redundant to your first video “massive attack” yet is STILL much more interesting than the actual song

    3.) pills n potions was- well… It was pills n potions LOL!!!!

    Don’t reference a classic rap album and yours in comprised of generic trash

      • Realest August 7, 2014

        The anaconda single cover is more interesting than the generic, basic ass TRAGIConda, forgettable track. How the single cover more interesting than the song? Lmfaoooooo!!!! Read and comprehend babes and whilst at it, comprehend this too.

      • Realest August 7, 2014

        And this has NOTHING to do with lil Kim.. You’re deeming your album “classic” by it’s title and “claiming authenticity” yet coming out with generic, forgetful music which couldn’t be FURTHER from a classic NOR authentic!!

    • King Nicki August 7, 2014

      @fakest Girl sit Nicki is queen and your constant hate and shade only make you look like a lonely pressed power bottom tbh

      • Realest August 7, 2014

        Do you even know what a power bottom is? Do you even know if I’m a man? Lol. Whoa, wait.. Why am I asking that, you don’t even know what decent music, you stan for a generic, garbaj maker. NEVERMIND my question bae, just MOND this..

    • fem class action August 7, 2014

      This who paragraph was lame. None of it even credible. Her album cover is not out. Pills andpotions is well pills and potions.Really?Oh we didn’t know. Gtfoh.

      Pills and potions was talking about some thing realmore than 95% of these other songs out here and yall still talk s$hit. Yall just got hate in your blood. Then when she doa fun song you still gotsomething to say even though people that know music can recognize what’s real. She don’tjust give you club likemost men do, or streets, she give you party, club, sad, and meanings. I’m sure her album will have a lot of different typesof songs.

      Nicki is an artist. She is versatile. She is entertaining. She is a hard worker and she gotta work a lot harder than her white and male counter parts. So yall know its not easy for a black femalerapper in these games. Just look at the charts. SMH>

      It’s Nicki, Drake, K lamar, Cole, and Jay z these days and Jay z is not even going as hard. These the only rap albums I willbuy these days.

    • Nicki minaj queen August 7, 2014

      No it don’t lol goodbye

  8. LIL KIM IS THE G.O.A.T. August 7, 2014

    Poor Nicki Minaj. She is going to flop so bad with this album it is not even funny. She can barely be called a rapper. She’s a pop tart like Katy Perry, but Katy Perry actually has several #1 singles, and Nicki has zero.

    I think Nicki Minaj is overrated as a rapper, and she is overrated as a pop artist. Her music is too garbage for her to be considered a historical figure in music. She won’t even be considered as great as Katy Perry when her career is over.

    I’m happy Lil’ Kim is back to give us real hip hop fans what we need to hear. Real rap and lyricism, not this bubblegum pop crap. ALL HAIL THE QUEEN BEE, LIL’ KIM!!!

    • Nicki Is Queen August 7, 2014

    • fem class action August 7, 2014

      Lil kim don’t even sound the same no more and you know it. Her nose is pinned shut. You probably don’t even know lil kim’s hardest track. I want Kim towin, Foxy could come back she stillat an age where she can go hard.

      But honestly, Nicki is our hope right now because she has the ability to wreck the charts like teh whites do. That’s why I ride hard for her. And yall mad. So she supposed to play low. Stop playin and let Nicki live. Black people destroy they own crabs in a barrel uncle tom a**es. Makin it esy too easy.

      • Wheresmyjizzle August 7, 2014

        Shut the PHUCK up.

  14. Rihboy August 7, 2014

    Girl bye! This song is terrible

  15. fem class action August 7, 2014

    You people know nothing about rap over here.If anybody is the katy perry of rap it’s Iggy. Sher does not know the culture and she does not rep the culture.They trying hard to make her the eminem of rap.Insulting. She’s a mockery of the culture.That’s why all of her songs are charting on hot 100.She is the “great white hope”- The answer.

    I know so many female rappers way better who can’t even get on but they letting her bubbleguma$$ in.GTFOH.She is a clear pop artist. Not a rapper. Some of you need to leave rap alone. At least Nicki keeps the rap formulas in her commercial stuff and is versatile.She writes her own rhymes.Her flow is top notch. Gtfoh.

    Alot of white people are narcissist and have control issues. I’m starting to not trust them.

    • Wheresmyjizzle August 7, 2014

      Dumbest paragraph ever!!!! What a waste of reading!!!! Go hang yourself thot!!!!!!!

      • fem class action August 7, 2014

        I don’t expect you or your people to understand or agree. It’s the truth and only the smart see what’s happening.

        Whites have diminished the native american race, bamboozled the black race, and ran the Mexicans out of their own terriorty just as they did Native Americans. When they werent even here first.

        They took, rock from us and gained way more popularity, took soul, blues, jazz, now reggae and hip hop/rap. Of course you wouldn’t understand you are part of the problem. You even show your true side when you tell me to “hang myself”. I wish a racist like you came to my hood trying to control us. HA. You would wish you never.

    • Rihboy August 7, 2014

      Chile. Nicki is a mess right now. But iggy is trash. She is being spoon fed to us, and majority of us are buying into her lightweight bars. It seems like now. They are forcefeeding artist in. Bey, rih, and nicki will have to be replaced sooner or later.

    • wheresmyjizzle August 7, 2014
