Birdman, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne and Mack Maine make up the Cash Money supergroup on this single, but expect more YMCMB members to make appearances on their upcoming self tiled compilation album. The new video includes some cameos from the likes Paris Hilton, Christina Milian and Kimora Lee, and you can enjoy in full up top.
Off the Rich Gang compilation album dropping June 25th.
Previously: Behind The Scenes
We saw the photos, and now we get the video. The Rich Gang, aka Birdman featuring Lil’ Wayne, Future, Mack Maine & Nicki Minaj, drop the official video for “Tap Out.”
The Rich Gang go about their rap business in plush mansion, rapping about “million dollar pu–y.” You gotta admit, there is something entertaining in watching Nicki Minaj and Future Stuggle Falsetto sing passionately about million dollar poom poom. Just saying.
This visual certainly had a good sized budget, with Kristina Milian, Kimora Lee Simmons and Paris Hilton appearing throughout. Yes, that Paris Hilton. Milian and Hilton play a server and bartender, who pull a heist, but only one manages to gets away. What this exactly has to do with the song is anyone’s guess—just roll with it.
YMCMB’s Rich Gang: Flashy Lifestyle compilation project is due in stores June 25. Watch the Hannah Lux Davis-directed video for “Tap Out” below.
Rich Gang hits the jackpot in the video for “Tapout” featuring Lil Wayne, Future, Birdman, Mack Maine, and Nicki Minaj. The Hannah Lux Davis-directed clip was shot in Beverly Hills and Miami in March. Paris Hilton and Christina Milian play undercover waitresses, who go on a heist at a lavish mansion party.
After spiking a man’s drink, the ladies crack open the vault and find diamonds, gold, and cash. Christina is eventually caught, while Paris gets away with the goods. Nicki Minaj puts her million-dollar assets on display in a skin-baring orange dress, while Kimora Lee Simmons, Bow Wow, and DJ Khaled make cameos.
The song can be found on the upcoming Rich Gang album, due June 25.
”U Need A LIFE”
Nicki Minaj went on an angry Twitter rant yesterday (May 3rd) aimed at “Access Hollywood” reporter Laura Saltman after Saltman voiced her criticism of Minaj’s approach as a judge on “American Idol.” Saltman shared that she felt the show would be better without the rapper’s “special brand of snark” and that Minaj isn’t really needed.
“Honestly, if your day was really RUINED because i walked away from a question, rather than discuss something negative, u need a LIFE. Lmao,” Minaj tweeted in response. “Yo @LilTunechi. This hoe want some trukfit. @LauraSaltman”
“Like…why? I spk to these ppl every single week. Go above and beyond! And the one time i ignore your ignorance u try to paint a bad pic?” she continued. “like that man Billy Bush…like r u the fake ryan seacrest? like my g, who the fuk r u? lmao. i gotta laugh at this shit. i swear to God”
“I used to let these ppl say whatever they wanted about me, not anymore. I am blessed & highly favored, not afraid of losing your acceptance,” Minaj added. “I wldve respected her had she pulled me aside like a BOSS. But going to your “friends” to have them lash out against me on TV? grow up hoe”

Carly Rae Jepsen teamed up with Nicki Minaj to provide fans with even more punchy girl power on her remix of “Tonight, I’m Getting Over You.” Minaj lent her rapid verses to Jepsen’s new single and fans have had plenty to say about the remixed track.
“When Carly Rae and Nicki get together, they make songs about getting over guys,” Jepsen’s manager Scooter Braun told MTV News of the song. “Whenever girls do songs about getting over men, they seem to do really well.”
In the song, Minaj raps about hitting the club, meditating and even doing yoga (or as she calls it, “yog-er” as methods to combat a recent heartbreak. This is the second time that “the female Weezy” has lent her voice to a track by a Scooter Braun-managed artist. Minaj joined forces with Justin Beiber on “Beauty and a Beat” last year and the result was an absolute domination of the airwaves.
The remix of “Tonight I’m Getting Over You” featuring Minaj’s temporary takeover dropped yesterday. Has musical lightning struck twice for Minaj and School Boy Records? Barbz and Jepsies seem to think so.

On last night’s (May 1) episode of “American Idol,” Nicki Minaj offered up her usual compliments, critiques and…Q-tips? That’s right; Minaj wanted fellow judge Mariah Carey to “clean them ears out” after the two divas disagreed over Angie Miller’s performance of “Someone to Watch Over Me.”
Minaj told Miller, one of the final four girls vying for a spot in the finals, that her “body transforms” when she hits the high notes. She recommended that the contestant make smoother transitions. “Every time you do your higher notes you get into instantly,” she said to Miller. “It’s like your face, it’s like your body transforms. So just get to the beginning to there—just stay in it.”
Mariah seemed to disagree with this comment. “We can’t expect everything to be at the top of your register,” she said. “There has to be a build. So I must disagree with certain members of the panel that every moment’s got to be at the top…”
When Carey said “every moment,” Nicki’s brows furrowed as she looked misunderstood. “That’s not what I said…you need to clean your ears out,” she said. But Mariah continued with the rest of her critique, ignoring Nicki and prompting the highlight of the dispute. Nicki pulled a Q-tip out of her cosmetic bag (which was conveniently on hand) and tried handing it to singer. “Let me give you a Q-tip so you can clean them ears,” she said.
Then, as if addressing children, Ryan Seacrest walked over to the panel and warned, “Somebody’s gonna go to the corner. We got to get through this show okay, girls.” To end on a lighter tone, Ryan confirmed if they were all still on for dinner that night. Laughing, they said ‘yes.’

Nicki Minaj has been heating up the streets with “Tapout” and “Freaks,” but she hasn’t forgotten about her pop fans. The “American Idol” judge jumps on the remix to Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Tonight I’m Getting Over You.” Her Minajesty adds a quirky verse to the dubstep meets electro-house record, produced by Max Martin. Get into it.
”She’s Sad I Tied Her Record…”
Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey another “tense” moment on “American Idol” this week. At point during the judging, Nicki took a cotton swab from her purse and told Mariah to clean out her ears. Mariah later mocked Nicki subtly for not having a #1 hit on Billboard.
When blogger Perez Hilton tweeted that Mariah had “burned” Nicki, the Young Money rapstress exploded online.
“Bwaha! Burn? Shes sad i tied her record for Hot 100 entries in only 3 years of being in the game,” Nicki tweeted. “Yep, a black female rapper. What u SHOULD be doing (wit your messy aâ) is asking why a woman SO successful at her age, is still so INSECURE, and bitter.”
“All dem #1s but JLo phone ringin? Lol,” she added. “I guess having a personality, being a secure woman, and giving genuine critique still trumps that.”
