Nicki Minaj Pulls Out the Big Guns for 'Lookin Ass N---a' Clip

Rolling Stone

The concept for Nicki Minaj's latest video is simple: She stretches and flexes her bombshell body as a man looks on, so she shuts him down with machine-gun verses and shoots him down with machine guns. What's complicated is Minaj's flow on the track, "Lookin Ass Ni**a," which will appear on the forthcoming compilation Rise of an Empire. And in the clip, which premiered on WorldStarHipHop, Minaj doesn't go easy on the onlooker.

Even though all the action takes place in a deserted stretch between mountain ranges – with presumably very little else to look at – Minaj does not appreciate the man's attention. But since she's wearing a lacey, fishnet bodysuit with stars taped over her nipples, we can assume anyone in his position would be eying her, sexually or otherwise.

"Stop looking at my ass," she raps at one point, followed by a close-up of the ripped fishnets covering her posterior. "I don't want sex, give a f**k about your ex, I don't even want a touch from you," she spits in a rapid fire flow. The man's eyes never break their gaze until Minaj whips out two tommy guns and really opens fire.

For everyone Minaj didn't gun down, Rise of an Empire is set to come out March 11th, according to Vibe. The album also contain tracks by Lil Wayne, Drake, Tyga and Birdman. Cash Money Records Co-CEO and Cofounder Baby described the comp, which promotes Lil Wayne's Young Money label, as a "family effort."
