Nicki Minaj And The Roots Celebrate Independence With Epic Philly Jam Gig

Nicki Minaj performing at Philly Jam on the 4th of July – the word combination inspires a lot of “yes.” Or maybe that should be “yass.” Nicki is at the top of her game these days, and she just can’t help but drop a whole lot of game on everyone each time she hits the stage. Add The Roots to that combo, and there’s a great show on its own. She blazed through favorites like Super Bass and Beez in the Trap, and included a couple of low-key moments with the new ballad Pills N Potions.

Beez in the Trap served as the ending for a medley, which included the Soulja Boy collab Yass B---- (naturally) and Did It On Em.

Besides celebrating her own personal independence, Nicki also gave a special Philly shoutout.

“It’s New York PHILLY!” she emphasized to cheers. “This has always been one of my favorite places to be, since before my first album dropped. Everybody knows that. Happy birthday America, today we’re free from everybody that tried to hold us back last year.”
