so, as usual, my friends always have di real big link dem to interweb fooliniss
and this one is in the top 5 of the year so far,
it’s an article, and tool, to help you write rhymes like Nicki Minaj, or any other young money artist for that matter (possibly barring wayne, he just says whatever is on his mind, and we buy it…i have literally heard him say his ABCs)
remember this—*i’m gudda gudda, i put her under, i see me wid her, no stevie wonder * <–talk di truth, that coulda come inna Friday
So the original article i believe is by a dude named Amadeo and can be found here <- i’m not sure if he’s the author, but this thing has been whoring it’s way around in interwebs and i can’t tell where it started, but me a credit it back to smady caw me nuh waan nuhbody say me a tief dem tings.
You’re Nicki Minaj (or any Young Money rapper) and you have to write a 16-bar verse in 5 minutes.
You’re writing 16 lines, so that’s 4 rhyme series.
Lines 1-4: Rhyme Series A, 5-8: Rhyme Series B, 9-12: Rhyme Series C, 13-16: Rhyme Series D
Now the good thing about this is that your rhymes can be really simple because you’re Nicki Minaj.
You might notice that the rhymes I use in this tutorial aren’t simple enough for Nicki Minaj.
Let’s do A first.
Step 1: Think of 4 things that rhyme. They don’t have to relate to each other. List them all:
Go to bed
Loaf of bread
Step 2: Place a phrase before each rhyme that links with it.
Now these rhymes have nothing to do with each other but we can link them together poorly (because we’re Nicki Minaj) with some boasting cliches. Let’s start with “go to bed”:
N*ggas always sleep on me… go to bed
Now for “overfed.” Ah, that’s to do with eating, so we can recall another boasting cliche: being hungry.
No one as hungry in this game… overfed
Now “loaf of bread.” How can “loaf of bread” be turned into a boasting cliche? Ah, bread is made of dough. Nicki Minaj is known for witlessly boasting about her money (see: Monster).
N*ggas know I got the dough… loaf of bread
Now “motorhead.” Well, she’s bragging about money… may as well brag about cars. “Coat of red” could work as an internal rhyme.
Coat of red on the rims… motorhead
Yes, it really is as simple as that. Just pause after the phrase, and say the rhyme. The antecedent phrase is there to confuse listeners into thinking it’s well thought-out.
Here are the 4 lines in all their glory:
N*ggas always sleep on me, go to bed
No one as hungry in this game, overfed
N*ggas know I got the dough, loaf of bread
Coat of red on the rims, motorhead
There’s a quick tutorial on how to quickly write 4 Nicki Minaj bars. Just repeat that process 3 more times and you have a verse written in under 5 minutes. I call it the “Young Money Method.”
—-there’s more here but he started dissin Drake, so i had to cut him.
and may i mention, i used the tool and came up with an EXCELLENT rhyme of my own
Snitches need to be quiet I don’t wanna hear a peep <—cue Nicki in the chicken feathers rollin her eyes and saying “peep peep” in the baby voice
Actin like they real they so Meryl Streep <–cultural reference, heeeeyyy USA!
Young Money, we Adele, rollin’ in the deep <–come on, that’s a classic.
Comin like a Dungeon Dragon it’s a promise I’m a keep <–you can do that one in the super fast snarling voice that she loves so much
and there you have it, i am ready for my contract.
Put me in coach!
Now. before the STANs get up in arms and start throwing pink leopard print grenades, let me go on record as saying i actually like Nicki Minaj, especially her older work…BUT yu woulda be a bug dutty liyad if yu nuh admit seh it nuh come een like a so she a build di verse dem.
cough it up
you know it’s the truth
*moves eyes side to side and twitches lip and head*
