Nicki Minaj claimed just last Friday that no video would be coming for "Rake It Up," her recent collaboration with Yo Gotti. But the "Rake It Up" video has indeed arrived, even if it took a couple extra days.
Minaj's initial justification for the video being withheld was curious: the rapper claimed she wanted people to "stop twerking and start reading."

We decided to not put the #RakeItUpVideo out anymore so that ppl can stop twerking and start reading. Let's change our world 1 book @ a time— NICKI MINAJ (@NICKIMINAJ) August 18, 2017
It seems entirely possible to do both, but who are we to argue with Nicki? She would eventually change course on the "Rake It Up" video (she was probably joking to begin with), and began teasing snippets of it on her social feeds over the weekend.
Though the video for "Rake It Up" features plenty of, well, raking it up, the big story at the center of the video involves a long-awaited race between Blac Chyna and Minaj, who busts out her infamous pink Lamborghini to battle her good friend. Behind-the-scenes footage of the two women in their flashy cars leaked in late July, and now you get to see what the final product looks like.
