Nicki Minaj raps on Inside The NBA

Nicki Minaj’s unusual promo outlets continue on this hellacious tour duringĀ Pinkprint week. Tonight, she stayed up with the guys on Inside The NBA (sans Charles, who was doing commentary here in Chicago) and after a brief interview, Nicki and the hosts partake in an actual rap cypher.

Yeah.

Observations:

– Kenny leads it off with a solid written.
– Grant Hill kinda comes off lame on Inside Stuff. Compounding that is rapping off a piece of paper. At least his last line was clever.
– Shaq is a true character. His trembling cheeks do also bring out a rapper he brings up: Biggie.
– Nicki goes hard, in an odd atmosphere to do so, but it plays alright overall. Some one-liners worked on me. Then she spoke in her high-pitched voice right after, which I noted immediately was weird in the stark contrast.
– Oh yeah… this happened.
