    She said in the graham norton show that 'the trap' refers to anything you can make money out of, so I take it the bees are people and she means when people get into to something that they're making money out of, it would be hard for them to get out of it because they need/want the money.

    The trap always refers to selling drugs, think about T. I. Or listen to his songs. It's a trap because it's an easy way to make money, but you are taking a risk getting killed or locked up, plus it's hard to get out of it. Nicki is using that reference but using it in a more universal way. If your way of life is a " trap" it's more than likely illegal or shady.

    Well, "beez in th trap" is about being stuck in an illusionary state of bliss (a spell), induced by materialism and perpetuated by hyper-consumerism. She is telling everyone to make money and then give it all away to the people that set the trap up for you. They usually use honey (something sweet/seductive) to trap bees(consumers of sweets and seduction). Nicki minaj and all of the luxurious items she mentioned could be considered the honey in the trap.

    A trap is basically a crack house. But, nicki means it as a metaphor for being in an environment where she has access to sexual pleasures - lesbian, that is. The song is basically about picking up and having sex with women. Nicki has said that a trap is a place of work because she couldn't tell the truth on live tv; plus, a trap house sort-of is a place of work where you get money. "i spit that crack, like i'm in that trap" (gives lesbian pleasure like crack). "i been popped-off, and if she ain't give it up then she gets dropped off" (she has had her orgasm, now she is ready to give sexual pleasure but if the girl is not wit that, then she is going to kick-her-to-the-curb, so to speak). "may pay a couple of thou just to bust that open" (she might pay for sex - to bust them legs open). The rest is pretty self-explanatory.
