Nicki Minaj – I'm The Best lyrics

Uh yo yo
It was back in '07 did a couple of tapes
Did a couple dvds made a couple mistakes
Didn't know what I was doing but I put on a cape
Now it's which worlds tour should I go on and take
See you told me I would lose but I won
I might cop a million Jimmychoos just for fun
Cause bitches couldn't take what was in me
Australia Sydney, Might run up in Disney
Out in la wit Lindsey,
Got the eye of the tiger the lion of Judah
Now it's me and my time it's just me and my prime
Everything I try to teach them they gonna see it in time
Tell them bitches get a stick I'm done leading the blind
Got two shows tonight that's Brooklyn and Dallas
Then the private party at the Buckingham palace
Which means I gotta fly like a movie no commercial
As young money cash money yea I'm universal

I hope they coming for me because the top is lonely
What the fuck they gon say oh (2x)
I'm the best bitch doing it doing it (2x)
I'm the good good good good
I'm the best.

Yo yo yo
I remember when I couldn't buy my mother a couch
Now I'm sitting at the closing bought my mother a house
You can never understand why I grind like I do
Makiya and Jelani why I grind like I do
Cause even when my daddy was on crack
I was crack now the whole album crack
You ain't even gotta skip a track
I ain't gotta get a plaque I ain't gotta get awards
I just walk up out the door
All the girls will applaud All the girls will commend
As long as they understand
That I'm fighting for the girls never thought they can win
Cause before they could begin you told them it was the end
But I am here to reverse the curse that they live in
Got two bones to pick ima only choose one
You might get addressed on the second album
Which means you can breathe till I mothafucken say so
To all my bad bitches I could see your halo.

I hope they coming for me because the top is lonely
What the fuck they gon say oh (2x)
I'm the best bitch doing it doing it (2x)
I'm the good good good good
I'm the best eh
It's ok (2x)
Long as you know (2x)
Long as you mothafucka know
I'm the b b b b b b b best

I hope they coming for me cause the top is lonely
What the gon say (2x)
I'm the best bitch doing it (2x)
I'm the best
I'm the best

    This is my 2nd favorite song of Nicki Minaj's songs. This one was the first song off of the Pink Friday album I heard n I loved it. Go Nicki Girl. Forget what the hataz said. "U Tha Best". Plus hataz she way more talented than Lil Kim ole fake self. How you gon reverse somebody song and make it lame. That was really lame n childish of you. Thatz why this whole Pink Friday album is 4 you n yo lil followers. Thanks Haters>Lil Kim etc.

    I love nicki minaj. The meaning of this song is that you are the best and you can accomplish anything you want in life. Like to become anything like a rapper, singer, doctor, police officer, anything really and this song talks about her childhood memories what is like that you have a father that does crack and that she is fighting for all the girls you did not win love you nicki minaj hope you keep it up. :). : p

    I think it's about how she rose to fame, and she transformed from the person she was to the person she is now- the awesome person she is now, I might add.
    "I remember when I couldn't buy my mother a couch, now I'm sittin' at the closing, bought my mother a house. '
    Mikaya and Jelani are relativs of hers, I think- this is on the acknowledgement list of her pink friday album.
    I love this song, and it is one of the best on the album, after Superbass, Fly- feat. Rihanna, and Roman's Revenge- feat. Eminem (Slim Shady).
    Nicki is awesome- she presents a unique image (I mean, did you see what she wore to the vma's?) All the girls are applauding, and commending, and the girls who never thought they could win are probably rockin' it now.
    By the way, Nicki is totally bringing pink doc marten's back into fashion.
    Love ya< nicki.
