Nicki’s “No Frauds” Gets the Royal Video Treatment

Nicki Minaj‘s most direct response to “shETHER” gets the video treatment today, and it’s a bit like visiting the dark side of a fairy tale. The visuals’ quality is razor sharp and clean with no rough edges or grime, but there’s plenty of dark alleyways, underground clubs, and menacing masks. Directed by Benny Boom, the video is reminiscent of the old EDM-flavored side to her former split personality. In her throne with her princess crown, she’s looking a lot like “Va Va Voom” Nicki, but the track isn’t nearly so cut and dry.

With a hook that travels from stretched-out Auto-Tuned sections to growling effects, and throaty verses punctuated by reverb smashes, she gets downright filthy. Like literally dirty. Remy was over there talking about diseases and botched surgery and here Onika’s going in about operating tables and OBGYN visits.

Even though it features king-of-the-charts Drake, Lil Wayne has the best verse when he says, “I just looked in the mirror like, ‘Alright, alright, alright/ I would let that little n***a right there fuck my wife.'” How’s that for a twist on the fantasy vibes?

By the way, has anybody brought up the related incident when Lady Leshurr was offered a deal with Atlantic if only she would dis Nicki? Just gonna leave that there. Seems relevant.
