Nicki Minaj

On Thursday, rapper Young Thug released a sign language video for his track "Anybody" featuring the comeback queen Nicki Minaj. Thugger has a brother who is a deaf mute. The rapper previously said he planned to take a yearlong hiatus from music to live his life as a deaf man.

"I've got a deaf brother," Thuggie said in a Hypebeast video. "I've got a brother who can't hear or talk, so I want to act deaf for a year. So I ain't going to put out no music this year."

It didn't take long for Thugger for change his mind.

In her verse, Nicki takes another swipe at the throat of Cardi B: "Latex on my drawers / bitch go clean my crown / I can hear my haters from way up here / they don't make a sound".

Nicki also comes for ex-boyfriend and former weed carrier Safaree Samuels: "You should be cleaning my mansion / my place is disgusting / why don't you act like a houseman / and go get to dustin'."

    As for Nicki: "And no one was listening..."

    (The last words from my infamous Karlie Redd reposted bio)

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I don’t want to hear about Nicki anymore! Anyone else think her time is up?

  • Indies beauty

    This is awesome for our exceptional learners!

  • stav

    All her lyrics are trash!

  • RoniV

    I hope so


    I like Nicki and all, but she’s trying to hard! ?????

  • FukkFolks2018

    Been thought that

  • sunni_daze

    This get 5 rose just based off the sign language alone. I am convinced that the rappers Nikki does features for are writting her verse. Her features sound better than her singles.

  • king shun

    Ground breaking video !

  • Kemi

    Nice video and thoughtful innovation for hearing impaired individuals, who are interested in this type of music. I can’t hate on that!!

  • oshh16

    Sia did a sign language vid in 08, but she not hip hop of course.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    And her stuff all sounds the same. No growth at all lyrically.
    She's talking about the same junk she was 10+ years ago.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    This reminds me of Common's video. I was in middle school and this dude was talking about. He said, "Yo, I was like why this ni--a writing on mega index cards then I was like this bitch bout deaf as a motherfucker". I died. ???

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    "The rapper previously said he planned to take a yearlong hiatus from music to live his life as a deaf man."

    He should have taken that year off. Actually, he should have taken like 10 years off.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    not clicking play .. I wish this cat the best if he bringing awareness ... but I wont support Icky ... Petty ... Nah

  • RealATLPeach36

    Now I actually like this! This was DOPE....

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I didn't even see that quote. Who says that? For what purpose? Smdh

  • HoneyyGoodMoneyy_

    i can appreciate this.. i'm studying ASL.

  • countrygal

    Nicki also comes for ex-boyfriend and former weed carrier Safaree Samuels

    You meant *cocaine carrier*, no?

  • deadellamore

    Nice video and the song is dope! Finally, rappers doing something different. Very nice gesture!

  • ?Royalty?


  • Stationarity

    I am not disagreeing but could you give me some examples of rappers that have started rapping about different stuff or have grown lyrically? The only one I can think of is JayZ and I am not even confident in that answer. David Banner?

  • SandraRose

    Read the post again. He says, "I want to act deaf for a year."

  • Kayke

    Id give another rose for being out the box ?

  • Kayke

    On her singles, she usually has one bar thats fire and then she switch up flow and melody. I think that's why she sounds better on features because she only gives that one hot bar

  • Kayke

    I don't understand when people say this.....what is she to be rapping about now?.....401ks, menopause, her funeral arrangements? She's a persona not a person.

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Hmmm interesting a clap back in a giveback video . I would have chosen a different venue to get at my nemesis or if I am truly the Queen I would just put out hreat music and let it speak for itself. I guess she is going to use every opportunity to annihilate and eviserate her enemies perceived and actual .

  • Kim’s Original Face

    When is young thug going to act like a recovering addict man. I been deaf to his music....

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    My point is that her lyrics are predictable...Not just the topics she's rapping about, but the lyrics themselves. A lot of her stuff has a "recycled" feel to it, and shows a lack of lyrical creativity. Just my opinion.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Grown folk don't listen to this garbage!

  • Kayke

    Oh can finish Nicki's sentences. I don't think her lyrics are awe inspiring but I can't predict what she's going to got a real gift there.

  • Ny MaGee

    Why are we so certain she's referring to Cardi and not Remy?

  • Django the God

    I don't know if deaf n***as will be feeling this without any bitches in the video.

    This beat harder than those beats yesterday though. If that was 4 Rose's this should be 4 or 5--easy.


    Take a year off to be deaf? What if he had a gay brother would he take a year off to be gay? Well his intention good tho, song is pure ? tho..

  • Django the God

    Would you rather have a big stick and some powder, or small and some weed?

  • Django the God


  • countrygal

    Give me average and some crown ?

  • davine puddin

    I think saf the staff was a better ghost writer

  • countrygal

    How nice of you ?

  • GuestSTAR

    Young thug looks like he stinks

  • ebonics

    This is my fave song made for a deaf person. Andy's older sister is def and he wrote this song for her. Its beautiful and touches my heart every time I watch it.

  • ebonics

    Nicki should have followed suit and went mute! ?

  • ebonics

    Yes, and she keeps calling herself the queen. You can't label yourself, reminds me of Kanye. Let the people decide and personally I say Boo this maaaan (half baked reference) lol

  • ebonics

    Cormega.. Went from hustler/rapper on to his legal hustle, and has evolved to real shit like how shady the industry is and how rappers should own homes and invest, etc.

  • Stationarity

    I have never listened to him. I will put him on the playlist now.

  • ebonics

    He's poetic.. My favorite living rapper. Every album is great but start with his older stuff (the realness, the true meaning) his newer album was amazing too!

  • ebonics

    Its been up, ive never liked her.

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    I live for anyone who includes the deaf community. My first love was deaf and i learned sign language to hit on his fine ass. i see onika is back okur

  • Rere

    Your comment tickled me! ??? but I agree with you.

  • KarmaBackAround

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

  • Allihave2say

    The lyrics sound childish and immature.

  • The Boom ?

    No it’s not.

  • The Boom ?

    No one’s making you listen to her. You not listening to her won’t affect her in any way, shape, or form.

  • The Boom ?

    Oops. Read hunneeee lmao ?

  • The Boom ?

    How many award winning songs have you written ?? Exactly. None. So stfu.

  • stav

  • The Boom ?

    Actually my dear, the only guttersnipe is you- talking out your ass with no facts! Nicki Minaj has more Billboard TOP 100 HITS than ANY other female artist! In HISTORY! Over 70 that she wrote. Get going bitch!!
