Nicki Minaj has made up for her lack of a feature on Drake’sFor All the Dogs with a new song that borrows one of the album’s beats — listen to it below.
On Friday (October 20), the Young Money hitmaker shared a freestyle fittingly called “For All the Barbz,” which finds her letting off some bars over Drizzy “All the Parties” collaboration with Chief Keef.
Sandwiched between the Toronto and Chicago rappers’ original vocals, Nicki slows things down with a verse filled with clever punchlines aimed at her competition.
“Ayo, pushin’ your pen or you pushin’ your luck?/ Tummy on tuck and my titties reduct/ Oh, look, you guys, I’m back to a D cup/
Oh, look, now bitches is tryna meet up,” she raps over the woozy instrumental.
“VMAs was a family reunion/First time in a while I seen all of my sons/ Keep it a hundred, keep it in a trust/ If I lose 99, I still keep it a buck.”
Listen to “For All the Barbz” below:
“For All the Barbz” is Nicki Minaj’s second release in as many weeks following the flex-heavy “Bahm Bamh.”
According to Genius, Nicki originally scrapped that song because she “didn’t like it for her album,” but its subsequent popularity in a fan poll resulted in her sharing it.
Both tracks are part of Nicki’s “Pink Fridays” series, which she announced last month. In a video posted to X, the “Roman’s Revenge” rapper outlined her plans to reward fans’ patience with “special things” each week leading up to the release of her new album Pink Friday 2 (out November 17).
Meanwhile, Drake had hinted that Nicki Minaj would appear on For All the Dogs, telling fans during a Detroit show in July: “Me and Nicki Minaj did our first song together in, like, a really long time. I got a lot of love for her.”
However, when the album arrived earlier this month without a feature from his former labelmate, the 6 God faced the wrath of her die-hard fanbase, the Barbz.
Nicki herself spoke about the unreleased collaboration — which may yet find a home on Pink Friday 2 — during a TikTok livestream in August, saying the song gives her nostalgia for Young Money’s heyday.
“The song I did with Drake recently definitely put me in the feels, like when we used to be doing Nicki Minaj TV on the Lil Wayne tour and stuff,” she reminisced. “Fun times, right?”
