This was another month full of music releases, and honestly we could've gone with a bunch of other verses for the month's pick. Roc Marciano went off (per usual) on Meyhem Lauren's "Street Religion," Offset killed his feature on Super Slimey's "Patek Water." Skepta showed why he's still Top Boy on "Still," the intro track to his surprise Halloween Vicious EP. But Nicki's verse on "MotorSport" is the one that made the most noise.
There were multiple reasons for why she had everybody talking. First and foremost, Nicki and Cardi were mysteriously featured on the same track amidst rumors of a beef brewing over the last several weeks, leading to rumors about how the song actually ended up getting made. Then, Nicki bodied everybody on the track. She hit us with multiple flows, the verse was dumb long, she got off on a couple metaphors, especially on towards the end, and she reminded us all why all these bitches is her sons. The song overall is a little underwhelming, though, but we had to give Nicki the nod for the Best Rap Verse of the Month (October 2017).
"Watch your man, then you should watch your mouth
Bitches is pressed, administer mouth to mouth
You see them stats, you know what I am about
I am the champ, I'm Iron Mike in a bout
Attention, Imma need you to face front
You don't want smoke with me, this is a laced blunt
Rap's Jackie Chan, we ain't pullin' them fake stunts
My crown won't fit on your bum-ass lace fronts
You bitches catchin' a fade, shout out my nigga Lil Boosie
All of your friends'll be dead, you can get hit with that Uzi
I call him Ricky, he say he love me like Lucy
Get you a straw nigga, you know this pussy is juicy
This Givenchy is custom made, now you can't get it at Saks though
I don't work in no office, but they copyin' and that's facts, though
I ain't tryna be violent, but if Nicki on it, it slaps, ho
Get you lined for that paper like a loose leaf when that strap blow
I'm with a couple bad bitches that'll rip the party
If Quavo the QB, I'm Nick Lombardi
Pull up in the space coupe, I done linked with Marty
I can actually afford to get a pink Bugatti
"Hey yo, Nick, didn't you just do a hit with Gotti?"
That too, but my niggas send hits like Gotti
It's a wrap, like the things on the head of a Saudi
Bitch, you my son, go and sit on the potty"
