TGIF: We Can't Stop Watching Nicki Minaj's Sweet Jamaican Patois

On her "Flawless" remix, Nicki Minaj spits cat-eyed boasts of looking Trinidadian, Japanese and Indian, but behind the scenes on the set of her Anaconda video shoot she sounds freshly plucked from the gullies of Portmore, Jamaica. Buzzed off a few sips of Myx, Nicki and her homegirls snap and switch while chatting in thick patois about buying Swiffer and Pinesol from a dollar store and flying dancehall queens out to Toronto. Our cover story found her immersed in island vibes on set as well, posted up on a couch with her dancehall-tinged French Montana collab "Freaks" blasting on repeat. Maybe Nicki channels her Caribbean roots to buck up for the camera? Whatever her trick, it's working. Happy Friday to di world.
