Chapter 290: Trap Queen

Upbeat & pop hip-hop

For proof that Nicki Minaj is one of rap’s great comedians, listen to her last verse on “Anaconda,” already an inspired flip of the archetypal comic rap song. Here, she abandons her usual technical proficiency to ramble about her fat ass through suppressed laughter. Lizzo goes for a different message on the punchline-packed “Truth Hurts” - she’s putting the sing in single, but her steamrolling confidence is equally front-and-center. Confidence and how to wield it is one of rap’s eternal themes, on display throughout the flexes in this set.
