“Itty Bitty Piggy” is an important piece in the Nicki Minaj timeline.


We may look back at “Itty Bitty Piggy” as Nicki Minaj‘s character defining performance. In 2009, Nicki dropped her fan favorite Beam Me Up Scotty under the watchful eye of Lil Wayne, who was at the peak of his second phase as a rapper. On “Itty Bitty Piggy,” Nicki completely co-opts Weezy’s knack for punch lines with a set of working principles inherently her own.”Itty Bitty Piggy” is also quite possibly our first encounter with Nicki Minaj’s canon of ideas and broad cultural references. In a matter of minutes she alludes to fairy tales, make-up concealer, Vienna sausage, American Association football, and that’s only half the list in short.

Today marks another chapter in Nicki Minaj’s illustrious career. Her two new singles dropped at 1pm, but let’s take a minute to rejoice on her maiden adventure.

Quotable Lyrics:

Flyer than a kite, I get higher than Rapunzel
Keep the Snow White, I could buy it by the bundle
Step your cookies up ‘fore they crumble, don’t be actin’
Like the Cardinals ain’t gonna fumble
Cause I’m a Steeler, fresh up out the dealer
All the dope boys gon’ feel her flow
So sick, I need a healer, fuck is my MAC
Concealer? I be out in Queens on the back of four-
Whee-whee-whee-whee-whee-whee-wheelers, I’m a big deal
That’s why I get more head, than a pigtail.
