Nicki Minaj Seems Confused About Chun Li In Her New Track


[Image: j7xbe1avxea3i1bmdcff.jpg]

Nicki Minaj just dropped her new track “Chun-Li,” during an interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1.

Nicki hasn’t recorded much solo music recently, and a lot of her features on other people’s tracks have sounded like she’s been asleep. While “Chun-Li” doesn’t reach the high heights of “Itty Bitty Piggy” or even “Super Bass,” it’s a respectable showing, and I’m into the beat. Given that she apparently finished recording this track yesterday, I’ll give her some props.

The song is named after Chun-Li, a Street Fighter character that, like Minaj, is known for her thick thighs. Chun-Li is not, however, a villain, and in the line where this character is referenced, Minaj seems convinced that she is. “They need rappers like me,” she says during the bridge, “So they can get on their fucking keyboards and make me the bad guy, Chun-Li.” Chun-Li is actually a pretty clean cut cop character, but okay Nicki go off!

This isn’t the first time Nicki has gotten a little nerdy—she’s decked out in Wonder Woman cosplay on the cover of her third mixtape, “Beam Me Up Scotty.” She’s usually a little more accurate than this, though. Onika, if you want to get more familiar with Street Fighter I’m sure there’s a fight night in New York that would love to have you.

A random tweet. Validation!

But that's the point -- they don't care about Nicki Minaj. They don't even like her, and will likely drag her for trying to use the reference

and be cool but incorrectly.

Which is what the writer is doing but in a nice kotaku appropriate way.

the line makes a lot sense than the literal interpretation being used in the article.
nicki never has been one for literal interpretation so im inclined to believe the set up is what this tweet states.
thoughts?

actually no, there's no way you can deduct that reference with the lyrics from the song.

The only valid interpretation is that, like Chun-Li, she's only female fighter/rapper in the game. (As Chun-Li was in street fighter until they began releasing the new versions and added Cardi Cammy)

Other than that the line was a pretty clear misstep.

no, you can. chun-li is considered a hero in the street fighter universe in
and the street fighter alpha OVA.

you wanna pull my street fighter fan card because we can go there.

EDIT: again the line is talking about a good guy being portrayed as bad. any good character could be in that slot. anyone who knows anything about street fighter would agree chun-li is one of the protagonist (along with ryu, ken, sakura, guile, etc.) and a titular female character as the first female in a "male dominated" cast. you're taking this into an interesting area but again, we can go there.

The song is exactly about what I described and that line is a misstep, she chose chun-li for a reason and not any character can be in that slot.

Further proving my point is the fact that she also calls herself storm of the x-men in the lyrics... storm held the same position as chun-li, being the only female staff in Xavier's school (Jean Gray was a student, at least in the 90s and 00's show)

There is nothing about good guy being portrayed as bad in chun-li's storyline. Chun-Li is literally a police officer.

ya'll just need to admit that this line don't make sense deadbanana3
