I realize how random this article seems, but after I listened for myself, I couldn’t help but share because it’s so bang on. A Vancouverite on Reddit named Josh experimented with the theory that when you slow down Nicki Minaj songs, the result is vocals from someone that sounds like a gay version of Jay Z. “Someone told me that if you slow down Nicki Minaj songs, she sounds like a gay version of Jay-Z. So I tried it and it’s TOTALLY TRUE,” said Josh. “REDDIT, I GIVE YOU MY LUNCHTIME PROJECT.”
After looking around a bit on the web, I also found that earlier this year, people had posted about the total opposite…that if you sped up Jay Z songs, they sound like Nicki Minaj. After listening to that as well, I found it too be true, but it isn’t as bang on as the Nicki to Jay Z change.
Josh also took the liberty of renaming the songs to encompass their slowness. For example, “Stupid Hoe” becomes “Stupid Slow”. LOL. A little mindless entertainment to wind down from your week. Listen to the slowed down tracks below.
