Nicki Minaj Raps in a Fake Haim During Unaired ‘SNL’ Sketch, Haim Responds
Nicki Minaj was the musical guest for this week’s episode of Saturday Night Live hosted by Tina Fey and as part of her appearance she starred in a trio alongside Fey, Aidy Bryant and Kate McKinnon. A parody of sister group Haim, “Friendship Song” rips into ex-boyfriends and coworkers, and features a fiery verse from Minaj.
The Trinidadian rapper appears around the 2:30 mark, where she walks up to the crew and says, “Oh girl, I don’t even need to know who it is. I’ll rip up her life, yo, kick the knife.”
She then proceeds with the lines: “Let’s punch her in the face and take her jewels/ It’s May, you know we don’t play with those April fools/ You shoulda seen her face, I was me, Ady, Katie and Tina Fey… Ooh, ooh-ooh ooh ooh/ Honey, we caught the shade that you threw.”
SNL acknowledged that the skit was cut for time but that didn’t stop the execs at NBC from sharing it online. The real Haim got wind of it and shared their thoughts on social media, as seen below.
