The University of California, Berkeley is set to offer a course on Nicki Minaj during the Spring 2023 semester.

Entitled Nicki Minaj: The Black Barbie Femmecee & Hip Hop Feminisms, the course was announced by a professor in a series of now-protected tweets and was described as a class that “is interested in thinking critically about [Minaj] and [her] productions w/in the context of broader historical-social structures & hip hop feminisms.” The rapper herself responded to a separate tweet about the course and shared that she’d “love to stop by,” while the professor explained that “having [Minaj's] personal insights would be AMAZING” in class.

The announcement arrives just shortly after Minaj released a selection of new material including a second remix of Skeng’s “Likkle Miss,” a collab with BLEU entitled “Love in the Way” and her solo single “Super Freaky Girl,” which broke Spotify records and gave Minaj her first solo No. 1.

Elsewhere in music, Kali Uchis and Takeoff x Quavo lead the week’s Best New Tracks.
