Catchy rap song containing some strong language
Nicki Minaj is one of the most successful female musicians of the 2010s, especially when it comes to hip hop music.
Though some of her more techno-ish tracks seem to be more universially acclaimed, her rap music frequently split the audience into those who love it and those who hate it. One of her most controversial songs was "Stupid Hoe", causing both haters and fans to shake their heads.
Let's face it, we've never heard any song like this before.
Nicki's rapping style ranges from extremely high pitched to very manly and low - all in one line. There is one moment in the song, where she screams out the word "would" for the length of four lines, making it sound like one long roar.
Still, you can not deny that beneath all the weirdness it causes the first time you listen to it, there follows a bit of addiction once you manage to listen to it again... and again... and again.
With loud pounding kicks and claps and "whoo"-sound effects it remains one of the most memorible hip hop beats in the last five years, and reminds you of a time where Timbaland and Nelly Furtado dominated the charts. Nicki Minaj does not copy the contemporary techno pop, she creates something herself. And once the power of her rap style get stuck into yourself, you can't do different than play it all over again.
Still, the song uses several curse words, such as "f**k" (even though most uses are hard to understand, since it's when Nicki turns into yelling at the end of the song, where you can barely understand what exactly she's saying), several uses of "b***h", two uses of the term "s*ck my d*znick" and several uses of the song's title.
Even though some argue this song is about glorifying violent bullying, it actually is a counter attack at Lil Kim.
Still, people who don't know the background could misinterpret it.
I think it's okay for mature teens 14 and up who know how to deal with language.
