Nicki Minaj Gears Down For Yo Gotti's 'Rake It Up' Video

Money literally grows on trees in the twerk-filled visual.

Published August 21, 2017

After teasing fans in a series of hilarious tweets that there would be no video for "Rake It Up," Nicki Minaj and Yo Gotti unveiled the visual in full today (Aug. 21). 

Nicki's initial justification for withholding the video was her finest form of trolling, to say the least. According to the rapper, the world would be a better place if her fans would "stop twerking and start reading." 

While it's entirely plausible to do both, it's clear that the "No Frauds" femcee was merely joking, as she teased snippets of the video over the course of the weekend. In the Benny Boom-directed clip, we find Nicki and Gotti living in an idyllic suburban neighborhood where money literally grows on trees. The foliage of Benjamins is so overwhelming that Nicki along with a sea of bodacious women have to rake it up. 

While Yo Gotti brags about his penchant for "bad b*tches," Nicki steals the show as she gears down for a high-stakes race with Blac Chyna. Complementing Nicki's flashy pink Lambo, Chyna gets behind the wheel of a similar red model proving that both ladies have a taste for the fast life. After showing off her skills behind the wheel, the head Barb makes sure to put her assets on full display in a barely-there latex bikini. 

Tidal subscribers can watch the video in its entirety on the streaming service. Check out a clip of "Rake It Up" below.
