A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this music.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that the song "Stupid Hoe" is all about competition between girls. Nicki Minaj uses lots of foul language (including "f--k" and the "N" word) and disrespectful put-downs to demonstrate her superiority over other girls, repeating "you a stupid hoe" and other pejoratives dozens of times. In light of today's intense bullying environments, this song's message is inappropriate for tweens and young teens.
What's the story?
"STUPID HOE" is the second single from Roman Reloaded, the second full-length album by rap diva Nicki Minaj. The song is another in a long list of risque tracks by the artist using lots of profanity and explicit sexual references to get its main message across: that other girls are "stupid hoes" compared with Minaj.
Is it any good?
Nicki Minaj has made a career out of cutting frenetic rap songs -- a formula she exploits to the limit in this track. Backed by an annoyingly high-pitched siren sound, Minaj's rapid-fire vocals get so out of control that she lapses into barely intelligible gibberish by the end of the track.
