Nicki Minaj delivered her new “Hard White” video on Thursday (January 31) and fan theories are working wild. Around the 1:32-minute mark, a black scorpion seems and is promptly ripped aside into a number of items.
Considering Drake’s newest album is known as Scorpion, many followers are assuming it’s a shot on the 6 God.

Although the scorpion scene is temporary, it’s prompted fairly an uproar on Twitter (naturally). Last December, followers observed Drake and Nicki — who’re each a part of the Young Money household — weren’t following one another on social media. Of course, hypothesis began to swirl across the standing of their relationship.
Other theories counsel Black Barbie can also be throwing a shot a perceived rival Cardi B with not solely the road, “I ain’t ever must strip to get the pole place” (a reference to Cardi’s stripper previous) but in addition with the Mike Ho-directed video. Fans consider a lifeless chook falling from the sky is meant to represent Cardi’s fall from grace.
But that’s not all. Toward the start of the visible, a Grammy trophy flashes throughout the display as Nicki raps, “I’m the trophy of the sport/Everybody attempting to win me,” which many have concluded is a diss aimed on the Grammy Awards.
“Hard White” is taken from Nicki’s Queen challenge, considered one of RealStreetRadio’s Most Disappointing Albums of 2018.
Check out the “Hard White” video up high and a number of the reactions to the imagery within the visible under.
