Queen of Rap? Nicki Minaj Makes a Statement in the ‘No Frauds’ Video

Nicki Minaj

It looks like Nicki Minaj is claiming the throne as Queen of Rap. Just like male rappers regularly jocky for “King of New York” or the top spot as the GOAT (greatest of all time), it’s hard to deny the success the Trini rapper has had since bursting on the scene in 2010.

After dropping Pink Friday, the Queens-bred wordsmith has had more than 70 songs on Billboard’s Hot 100, and has been the hottest female rapper in the game–at least commercially–for years.

The crown doesn’t come easy, though. Last month she battled with fellow New Yorker Remy Ma for lyrical supremacy, suffering a near-fatal blow when the Bronx lyricist dropped “ShEther.” Still, Minaj recovered, releasing a trio of tracks that not only took direct aim at Remy Ma, but sent her Barbz into a tizzy as well.

One of those songs, “No Frauds,” was the most full-throated attack on her rival and it’s also her latest video.

In the clip–which talkshow host Ellen DeGeneres loves–Minaj gives fans Beyonce vibes, donning a jewel-encrusted crown and custom Alexander McQueen ‘fit while rapping alongside the River Thames in London. Oh, and she’s also joined by her Young Many comrades Lil Wayne and Drake.

Take a look at the NSFW video below.
