Nicki Minaj Provides Boost of Confidence With Diss Song in Hilarious ‘SNL’ Skit
Nicki Minaj's return to Saturday Night Live on Saturday (May 19) featured two lit performances and the rap star making a cameo in a hilarious sketch.
Titled "Cut for Time: Friendship Song," the skit also featured SNL actors Tina Fey, Aidy Bryant and Kate McKinnon. In the skit, the women come to each other's aid by talking down on people they have issues with, in order to give themselves a boost of confidence. This is all done via impromptu, poppy rock tunes where the helping homie points out flaws in the person their friend has issues with.
When it's Nicki's turn, she goes from friendly confidant to that chick you don't want to mess with. "I'll rip up her life, yo get the knife/'Cause you low-key my wife, you my bitch for life/You a 10, she a two, life sucks for her/It's going down when we come out, it's up for her," she snaps.
Nicki also performed two songs on the show, breaking out the single "Chun-Li" and bringing out Playboi Carti for their duet "Poke It Out." Of course, the "Barbie Tingz" MC went all in with extravagant sets and a number of background dancers.
Next up for Nicki is her highly-anticipated new album, Queen, which is slated to drop on June 15. June is looking to be a big month for rap, as it is stacked with big releases from Drake, Kanye West, Nas, Kid Cudi and Kanye West and more.
