Donald Trump has found another outspoken non-supporter in Nicki Minaj! The rapper kept quiet during election week, but made sure to call out the president-elect in her new song ‘Black Barbies’ — and the lyrics reveal just how fearful she is of him taking office.
“Island girl, Donald Trump want me to go home,” Nicki Minaj, 33, sings in the second verse of “Black Barbies.” The rapper is obviously referring to the 2016 president-elect’s immigration policy, which worries her since she was born in Trindad & Tobago, rather than the United States, although she’s an American citizen
Trump has made it clear that he is going to be incredibly strict about immigration laws, detaining and deporting anyone who’s here illegally and even building a wall to keep Mexican immigrants out. “Now I’m prayin’ all my foreigns don’t get deported,” she raps later on in the verse. Listen to the song here:
Nicki is clearly NOT on team-Trump, but while many celebs were vocal about their disdain for the GOP candidate during the election, she noticeably kept quiet on social media all week long. In fact, she event went on a hiatus from Nov. 7-14, and on the 15th, she finally returned to surprise fans with “Black Barbies.”
The track is actually a remix of Rae Sremmurd, Gucci Mane and Mike Will Made It’s “Black Beatles,” which Nicki was celebrating because it reached the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Charts. Twitter totally blew up when Nicki posted the song in the early morning of Nov. 15, and obviously, fans are crossing their fingers that it means a new album is on the way soon!
HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Nicki’s lyrics about Trump on “Black Barbies”? Do you think it’s a good song, or are you waiting for something better from the rapper?
