Nicki Minaj is getting ready to release her next single off The Pinkprint, but in the interim, she explained the meaning of "Yasss Bish" in an interview with Yahoo!. The phrase comes from drag queen culture, and Nicki said that females adopted the lingo because "it makes us very cocky and very sexy and feminine." She also added that by saying "Yasss Bish," "I'm confirming that you're the shit."
