Nicki Minaj took to Instagram to tease the visuals for the single Hard White. The Queens rapper previewed an exclusive behind the scenes clip with the cast and crew of the video rapping parts of the song. The clip is only eleven seconds long but that’s more then enough time to realize Nicki is ready to release some heat.

As promised, Nicki dropped the video, directed by Mike Ho, one of the first visuals shown is Minaj sitting on the thrown. Fans suggested that symbolically it could represent the rap thrown as Nicki has been challenged by the likes of Remy Ma and Cardi B.
When the Queen album first premiered many thought that “Hard White” was about Cardi B but Nicki cleared up the rumors by stating that the song was made before the infamous beef between her and Cardi began. Minaj often refers to herself as the “bad guy” and that seems to be the main theme of the video as it consists of gothic figures surrounding Nicki as she seduces the camera.
Nicki continues to drop fire videos back to back as she gears up for her European portion of her Queen tour featuring artist Juice WRLD.
