Things have been really quite cold for Nicki Minaj after Remy Ma ruled with “SheEther” and took home the BET Award for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist. But the back-and-forth between the two didn’t silence Minaj for long. Between her hot features of Yo Gotti’s “Rake It Up” and Fergie’s “You Already Know,” she shows no signs of slowing down.
Recently, Nicki continued her streak of features with a collaboration with gospel songstress Tasha Cobbs Leonard. Entitled “I’m Getting Ready,” the 8-minute song is all about reclaiming your throne in the midst of adversity.
“Eyes haven’t seen and ears haven’t heard the kind of blessing that’s about to fall on me,” sings Leonard. “Victory is here, it kicked defeat out the door.”
And of course, Nicki brought her usual banter, boasting of resilience this time around: “I serve a God that parted the Red Sea,” he raps. “Multimillion dollar commercials for Pepsi / From food stamps to more ice than Gretzky / I don’t gotta talk, the Lord defends me / I watched them all fall for going against me / Me and all my angels shot the devil up / While you was trying to pull me down, I leveled up.”
