It’s been a rocky few years of jail sentences, diss tracks, and feuding boyfriends, but the gang is finally back together. The Young Money crew of Lil Wayne, Drake and Nicki Minaj released their new track “No Frauds” last month, reuniting the trio that dominated the music charts together in the early 2010s.
Taken from Minaj’s highly anticipated upcoming fourth studio album, “No Frauds” has the MC mending friendships with Drake and Lil Wayne while squarely taking aim at rapper Remy Ma. The new music video, which dropped today, features Ma’s former friend Rah Ali, who posted a formal letter about the beef between Ma and Minaj on Instagram.
Shot mostly in London (scenes with Lil Wayne were not filmed in the U.K. because the rapper is barred from the country), the video shows Minaj sitting on a throne with a crown, posing in front of Westminster Bridge and walking through the streets of London. Minaj and Drake perform their verses together in London club, while Lil Wayne joins Minaj on a matching throne for the Young Money founder.
Directed by Benny Boom, “No Frauds” marks the first Young Money music video since 2014’s “Only”, with Minaj and Drake recently reconciling after Minaj ended her romantic relationship with Meek Mills last year.
In addition to the new single with Drake and Lil Wayne, Minaj also just dropped a video for “Run Up” with Major Lazer and Drake’s OVO signee PartyNextDoor. “Run Up,” which debuted in January, is one of the many collaborations Minaj has appeared on this year. She’s also released music with Nick Jonas with the single “Bom Bidi Bom” for 50 Shades Darker, as well as Nick’s brother Joe and his band DNCE on the song “Kissing Strangers.”
Barbz still knows her way around the studio. Now, let’s get that fourth album.
“No Frauds” is the third single Minaj has dropped for her untitled fourth album. She’s also released “Regret In Your Tears,” and “Changed It.”
