Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” Leaks: Listen
UPDATE: Here's the official version.
Nicki Minaj's hyped new single "Anaconda" was supposed to be released this week, then she pushed it back to August 4, but now a very low quality version of the Pink Print cut has hit the web. As several fans and critics suspected, it does indeed sample Sir Mix-A-Lot's "Baby Got Back," with the famous "My anaconda don't want none unless you got buns, hon" and "Oh my gosh, look at her butt" lines sampled throughout. As for the beat, it's an update of the original for our turnt times, and assuming this is actually the final version, the whole thing was definitely made with the club in mind, with some extended instrumental chunks, including Nicki's call-and-response outro: "Where my fat ass big bitches in the club, fuck those skinny bitches, fuck those skinny bitches in the club."
In addition to all the "Baby Got Back" references, Nicki also drops an allusion to Ice Cube's "It Was a Good Day": "This dude named Michael, used to ride motorcycles / Dick bigger than the tower, I ain't talkin' bout Eiffels / Real country ass nigga, let me play with his rifle / Pussy put his ass to sleep, now he callin' me Nyquil."
We have to say, it's pretty refreshing to hear an ode to fat-bottomed girls coming from an actual woman with a big booty instead of one of the dudes ogling them. Check it out below.
