NICKI MINAJ PROMISES TO STOP CORRECTING LYRICS IN THE FACE OF CUBAN DOLL ‘CROCODILE TEETH’ CONFUSION
Nicki Minaj is enjoying the positive response from fans to her new singles from the re-release of her 2009 mixtape Beam Me Up Scotty. However, after assisting Cuban Doll with one particular lyric, Nicki clarified that she is not out to embarrass people she genuinely cares about. On Saturday (May 22), Cuban Doll posted an Instagram photo with a caption that highlighted Nicki’s verse from “Crocodile Teeth.”
“My type of gal wants to know da opps out,” she wrote at first. After noticing the post, Nicki jumped into the comments to point out that the verse was in patois and provided Cuban with the correct lyric, “Might tek a gyal man, I know the opps out.” Cuban thought she was in good hands after one quick update, until people jumped on her, telling her to delete the post and feel ashamed for not knowing patois. Not long after the drama erupted, Nicki Minaj took to her Instagram stories to inform fans that there was no beef between the two and that the entire situation had been taken out of context.
“I hope you all know how much I adore Cuban food,” she wrote. “I was having a good time with|her. I don’t try to embarrass the people I fuk with. That’s cheesy. I’ll never, ever correct a lyric again, Chile. “Wham!” On May 14, “Crocodile Teeth” was released as part of the updated version of Beam Me Up Scotty. According to Hits Daily Double, the album is expected to debut at No. 2 on the upcoming Billboard 200 chart, with approximately 79,000 total album-equivalent units sold.
Cuban Doll was not the only rapper who was irritated by the Barbz’s actions. Lil Yachty recently asked Nicki and the Barbz for forgiveness after siding with Cardi B during her and Nicki’s feud in 2018. “Hey, Barbs, this is Boat… “I just wanted to apologize,” he wrote on Twitter on May 17. “I’m a huge fan of Cardi B and Nicki Minaj. I hope you will forgive me.”
