Hear Nicki Minaj and Eminem’s Spooky New Track
Duo team up for the ominous "Roman's Revenge," from Minaj's upcoming Pink Friday.
Nicki Minaj will deliver one of the year’s most anticipated hip-hop debuts, Pink Friday on November 22 but the rapper has offered an early look of the finished product on a collaboration with Eminem, titled “Roman’s Revenge.” Hear it below!
Minaj and Eminem’s collaboration is an eerie, four-and-a-half minute beast. Assuming her bizarre alter ego Roman Zolanski, Minaj goes to battle with Eminem’s Slim Shady character over ominous string stabs and a hard-hitting metallic beat. “I’m starting to feel like a dungeon dragon,” Minaj raps. Later, Em delivers predictably agro, expletive-laden jabs at white girls: “Life is a dumb blond white broad, with fake tits and a bad dye job,” he raps.
As SPIN previously reported, Minaj released a video last week for another Pink Friday track titled “Right Thru Me.” Unlike “Roman’s Revenge,” the song is a lighter, string-soaked ballad, with Minaj delivering emotionally vulnerable lyrics about a deteriorating relationship.
