In her mind, Nicki Minaj is the messiah of the female Hip-Hop movement and she makes that point clear to her fans via her new video for ‘Freedom’. The song is the latest offering from her ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded – The Re-Up’ album, which hit stores today.
Donning a crown of thorns before ascending the stairway to heaven, Minaj boasts about not being appreciated by her peers for opening doors and that similar to Jesus, people won’t respect her contributions during her lifetime. Watch five unbridled minutes of narcism in her ‘Freedom’ video below:
‘Freedom’ is a refreshing song that renewed people’s faith in Minaj’s skill as a rapper but this video goes so far overboard that is almost offensive. It is one thing to be an egomaniac like Kanye West, who actually has the catalogue of music to support his claims to greatness, but Minaj has yet to cement her position as a true Hip-Hop pioneer with her handful of hits that are all Pop records. Jesus didn’t die so that Minaj could mock his image with a headful of horse hair.
