Memphis rapper Yo Gotti and Mike Will Made It have released a new mix of trap bop “Rake It Up” featuring Nicki Minaj, whose bars shouting out Blac Chyna and their matching Lamborghinis along with her Queens roots are being praised as a return to her mixtape days, a period when she laid down the foundation for her reputation as a flow master.
Minaj also jumped on Yo Gotti’s “Down in the DM” the lead single from the same album last year.
Her “Rake It Up” verses perhaps signals an entry for more positive press in rap world for Minaj, who has been under siege since the release of Remy Ma‘s “Shether.” Most of it has been the misogyny and double standards Minaj as a woman in the game has always had to battle, but she hasn’t been aided by the songs she’s chosen to drop thus far this year, many of which were frothy pop or techno numbers.
Granted, many of those songs were in the queue before the beef dropped like on bomb on Minaj, the problem is that sort of insider-baseball info matters not to temperature takers.
According to Minaj, there is a visual forthcoming for “Rake It Up,” but in the meantime check out the single below.
