Nicki Minaj may be back to her natural hair color, but she's not done with the color pink. Using her new "Lookin A** N***a" video as confirmation, Nicki revealed that her next album will be titled "The Pink Print."
"Nicki Minaj releases a new track off the upcoming Young Money album Rise of an Empire & Upcoming Album Solo The Pink Print," reads the caption on World Star Hip Hop, where the video was first posted. Nicki tweeted a link to it as a stamp of approval.
Her previous albums are Pink Friday, and Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded.
Apparently, the sneak attack is the Queens-bred YMCMB rapper's new marketing M.O. She announced, for example, that she'll be dropping an album this year via a low-key track released online — a freestyle to PTAF's "Boss A** B****," which was posted to her SoundCloud and then later removed for copyright reasons.
"I'm really excited," Nicki told MTV about the album back in November. "The people that I have been working with now have been people that I haven't worked with before, so it's like they're bringing a new sound to the album that I've never experimented with."
Not everyone is feeling her experiments, though. The artwork that she posted to accompany her "Lookin A** N***a" video — an iconic image of Malcolm X peaking out of his window — was not well received. "I'm just disgusted with Nicki Minaj now you gonna have young cats out here thinking brother Malcolm is a psychopath killer," tweeted @ZuluPeabody.
An on-sale date for The Pink Print has yet to be revealed.
