Poetic Reading Of Nicki Minaj's 'Anaconda'

Milton, Wordsworth, Hughes, and dare I say…Minaj? It's easy to get caught up in a catchy beat and an iconic hook, but thanks to comedian Ian Martin's dramatic reading of the Nicki Minaj hit, "Anaconda," we can truly appreciate the mastery of her wordplay.

Recited slowly over soft piano music and a backdrop of waves and clouds we can see how Minaj incorporates a plethora of literary techniques throughout her verse. She greets us with the alliteration: "Boy toy named Troy used to live in Detroit", captivates our imaginations with the hyperbole of: "Dick bigger than a tower, I ain't talking about Eiffel's," and mystifies us with the metaphor: "Pussy put his ass to sleep, now he calling me Nyquil." Through her use of language, Nicki proves that she does, in fact, have a fat ass.
