Ready your bars and flows kids, the Megatron Challenge is here.
On June 20, 2019, Nicki Minaj returned from her quick absence with fresh single, ‘Megatron’.
The song arrived in perfect timing for an overseas summer, but did a pretty good job at warming up our Winter as well.
Accompanying the song was a hot new video, in which the rapper returns to an Anaconda-like setting in the forest.
The hit has already seen 34 Million views on YouTube and has spent two weeks in the Billboard Top 100.
Recently, Minaj hit up Instagram to introduce fans to the #MegatronChallenge.
The winner, whoever can submit Minaj’s favourite freestyle, has been promised $10,000, the runner up a hefty $5,000.
All that is needed is the backing beat to be that of Megatron, the rest is up to the individual.
Mixing, remastering, and even dancing to the beat are all accepted, but the most impressive entries have been the killer freestyles.
Participants have also been teased to receive a possible place on Minaj’s label.
The challenge kicked off July 5 and will continue on until July 27.
Here are some of our favourite entries so far, that we hope Nicki will adore as well:
Mixing humour and within a freestyle is always a huge plus. The delivery on this submission was also nothing to ignore.
Hopefully this one lands a top spot in the Megatron Challenge.
Another incredible submission to the Megatron Challenge.
It’s going to be really hard for Minaj to choose a fave, it looks like everyone is gunning for the main prize.
Omerettà The Great – @omeretta
This freestyle by Omerettà The Great was even reposted by Minaj herself, and it’s very easy to see why.
In regards to this incredible rendition Minaj wrote, “reasons she deserves to sign to the Queen: mad pretty, dope accent, pen game strong.”
We wholeheartedly agree. Our favourite Megatron Challenge submission so far.
It’s honestly hard to believe Nicki hasn’t seen this one yet. Incredible flow and lyricism – watching this will leave you breathless.
She’s even followed by Billie Eilish and Rico Nasty, so here’s hoping Nicki will see her Megatron Challenge submission soon.
