Last Saturday Night’s season finale of Saturday Night Live was a high-profile episode with no shortage of celebrity guests. Hosted by Tina Fey, the show featured everyone from Donald Glover to Robert Deniro. But in-between the sketches and yuk-yuks were two highly-stylized Nicki Minaj performances.
Some abstract Asian flare graced “Chun-Li,” and Playboi Carti was the most special special effect accompanying “Poke It Out.” Most notable was Minaj breaking from the choreographed posturing for a few moments in each go-round to ask the audience if they want to get “turnt up?”
Fans of the show will get to see Minaj and Fey reunited soon as their rumored buddy cop film Get Ya Life Ugly – which some speculated was announced by Minaj as an Instagram joke, has gotten so much momentum online that now it pretty much has to be real.
– In another major moment, Childish Gambino‘s “This Is America” has topped the Billboard Hot 100 for the second week in a row.
– According to Pusha T, his forthcoming King Push album is “flawless.”
– Hip-hop fans can sleep easy once again now that the J.Cole vs. Lil Pump beef is “over.”
