A little over a week ago, Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” single artwork spurred plenty of reactions, whether it be of thirst or a call to arms for daughters to not admire to be her. If anything, listening to “Anaconda” isn’t going to help the latter section as the Sir Mix-A-Lot “Baby Got Back” sampled cut goes back to 1992, plenty of sexual innuendos and one well timed placement of the Seattle rapper’s “my anaconda don’t want none unless you got buns, hon.”

If you wanted appropriate and wholesome, “Anaconda” is so far away from it. Minaj raps here with about the same tongue-in-cheek frankness of any female rapper who decided to out raunch her male competition. Small samples: “Dick bigger than a tower, I ain’t talkin’ about Eiffel.” and “Toss my salad, now I call him Romaine”. The track is a return to the limelight for the likes of Polow Da Don who a couple of years ago dominated radio with the likes of Rich Boy, Keri Hilson and Timbaland. It may cause Chuck Creekmur to write another letter to feminists and in particular African-American mothers but more than likely all that intent will be delivered towards the lyrics Minaj projects here (as we expected just from the artwork).

With apologies to the skinny booty women in the club, Minaj’s “Anaconda” is going to get its proper release on Monday, August 4th after a week’s delay. Her third LP, The Pink Print has yet to have been given a release date.
