Nicki Minaj's third album, The Pinkprint, dropped a few weeks back, so we thought we'd go ahead and compile the best rap references to the female beast. And damn were there a lot. Dropping Nicki Minaj's name in a song seems to be a thing. Of course, not all of the references were about Nicki specifically. A lot of them were about her butt or wanting to have a "menage" with Nicki Minaj (that one may be a tad overused). But there were a few clever, meaningful references that stood out, which we've highlighted for you here today. If we had to guess, there's probably no other female rapper who's name dropped so often in hip-hop, which is pretty cool if you think about it. 

On that note, you can cop The Pinkprint on iTunes or stream it here.
