Nicki Minaj

The Pinkprint Tour stops at Concord Pavilion on Friday, August 14.

Is that a world tour or your girl’s tour? So rapped Drake in one of his twin dis tracks aimed at Meek Mill, the Philadelphia shouter opening for Nicki Minaj on Friday at the Concord Pavilion (2000 Kirker Pass Rd., Concord) as part of her Pinkprint Tour. The versatile rapper Minaj once referred to herself as The only rap bitch on the Forbes list and now boasts her own wax sculpture in Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum in Las Vegas, immortalizing a still from the flashpoint music video to “Anaconda.” Fans have already begun making pilgrimages to the sculpture and enacting lines from Minaj’s own repertoire, such as Let ‘em eat my ass like a cupcake. In other words, the answer to Drake’s question is obvious: It’s Minaj’s world tour — one she’s been poised for since at least 2010, when she dropped an unparalleled verse on Kanye’s “Monster” — and Drake’s barb only stings if you consider it inherently emasculating for a man to open for his girlfriend.
