With Nicki Minaj's Queen finally upon us, the album's third track "Barbie Dreams" already has fans in a frenzy. The song is a flip of Notorious B.I.G.'s "Just Playing (Dreams)," and its sequel, "Dreams" by Lil Kim, off 1996's Hardcore. Whereas the first two are about R&B singers, Nicki's version has her running absolutely raunchy raps about having sex with a number of big-name rappers. Minaj playfully delivers a few foul-mouthed jokes aimed at just about everybody.

Lyrics like, "I remember when I used to have a crush on Special Ed / shout out Desiigner because he made it out of special ed," and “I had to cancel DJ Khaled, we ain’t speaking / Ain’t no fat nigga telling me what he ain’t eating,” have spurred a riot online. Nicki even took playful jabs at 50 Cent, Drake, NY Giants wideout Odell Beckham Jr. and Meek Mill.

Peep reactions to "Barbie Dreams" below.
