Nicki Minaj “Sorry”: Nas Raps About Gangsta Love on New Song With Fellow Queens Native
Nick Minaj just dropped her new Queen album on Friday (Aug. 10), but there is more where that came from. On Saturday (Aug. 11), Funkmaster Flex debuted a new record from the Queens rapper that didn't make the cut on the new album and this one features Nas.
Ill Wayno checks in on the beat which has reggae undertones. Nicki beats up the track with a demanding pitch. "Ayo, that bitch is always flippin'/You niggas never listen/We make a perfect team/Balling Jordan and Scotty Pippin," she raps. "But I'ma let you dip in/That wax sauce drippin'/Said that when you with a boss bitch, now you can tell the difference."
Nas masterfully lays bars over the beat rapping, "I used to mack with the Mac on me/Project parties, lights off, mad horny/Dutty wine and feel the gun I'm hidin'/She still grindin' on me, smilin' at me/I'm like 'Hi, I'm Nasty.'"
He even appears to touch on his relationship with Nicki. "Flexing with your ex, I couldn't disrespect ya/Later on, I undress ya, couldn't wait to sex ya/Made a nigga wait so long, but it was special," he spits.
This is apparently the track that Nicki had announced she might push back her album for. In the days leading up the project's release, Nicki notified fans that she has a record that "Features one of the greatest of all time" and samples Tracy Chapman that might delay the LP. The original lyrics for the sample on "Sorry" were penned by Tracy Champman for the 1998 track, “Baby Can I Hold You.”
It sounds like we will be getting at least one more record off the Queen cutting-room floor. Nicki also announced plans to update the album with a new Future record.
