32 Best Lyrics on Nicki Minaj's 'The Pinkprint'

FUSE TV - 32 Best Lyrics on Nicki Minaj's 'The Pinkprint'

Happy The Pinkprint week, everyone. Nicki Minaj's third album — the gauntlet she's thrown down against Jay Z's 2001 landmark The Blueprint, and a giant breakup record, too — has landed on Earth.

A quick story before we get to all the lyric-worship: 2.5 years ago, Nicki released the sequel to Pink Friday, the awkwardly-titled Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. Not all parties [points shamefully to self] were fair enough to that album at first. Lots of cuts have ended up passing the test of time ("Beez in the Trap," "I Am Your Leader," "Pound the Alarm"), and your Greatest of Roman Reloaded playlist will keep winning parties for a while more. But it sucked watching rap's reigning empress serve up her second not-as-good-as-Nicki-herself album in a row.

ENTER THE PINKPRINT, December 16, 2014. There's a ton to love this time, and the album's arguably her best. Whether you're in or out on post-"Starships" Onika ("Starships" is so good!), The Pinkprint's worth a look. Nicki's magnetic performances swivel effortlessly from glamorous to generous to genius. And those Cash Money–approved hashtag punchlines are still there. (#callinmenyquil)

So here are Nicki Minaj's 32 shiniest gifts to us all this holiday season, arranged from best to least-best-but-still-great. We're doing 32 because Nicki Minaj is 32. (#doublerainbow)
