After years and years searching for an answer to the burning question, “What does a slowed down Nicki Minaj sound like?” a Reddit user finally used their lunch break to find out. The answer is, drum roll please, Jay-Z. Yup, slowed down Nicki Minaj sounds like Jay-Z. Understandably, the post has already been declared the best post on Reddit ever.
Nicki Minaj Slowed Down
The original Reddit post from user joshlamb reads:
Someone told me that if you slow down Nicki Minaj songs, she sounds like a gay version of Jay-Z. So I tried it and it’s TOTALLY TRUE. REDDIT, I GIVE YOU MY LUNCHTIME PROJECT: NICHOLAS MINJAY-Z (now taking requests)
*Side note: The “gay” part is not my assessment and, for what it’s worth, I find it completely unnecessary.
Reddit users, who never leave a single stone unturned, immediately said “Try speeding up Jay-Z and see if you get Nicki Minaj.”
Unfortunately, the answer isn’t what you want to hear. joshlamb responded, saying “i DID try that… it didn’t work as well as i’d hoped.”
The nearly 900 comments (at the time of publishing) are classic. Here are a few of the best:
dan_glesack: What if Nicki Minaj really is a man, but they just speed up her songs to fool everyone ?
TheCatKnowsBest: What if Nicki Minaj is really just Jay-Z with his voice sped up?
StuartMacKenzie: So… Nicki Minaj is just Jay-Z’s chipmunk voice?
Osiris32: But he doesn’t have the butt. You can’t hide that kind of trunk junk easily.
Also, it’s quite hard to find a picture of Jay-Z’s butt online. He doesn’t seem to turn around much when cameras are present.
Osiris32: I have been quite close to Minaj’s ass. About 4 feet away, actually. That’s no basketball. It ain’t real, either, but it’s no basketball.
EneaMD: I did not expect that to be true – at all. Hearing Jay-Z say “you’ll get slapped if you lookin, hoe” was.. Enriching
