Earlier this week, Nicki Minaj started sharing a series of Instagram posts teasing a release announcement for Friday, May 14. The rapper told her 135 million Instagram fans she would be coming Live shortly before midnight, leading many to believe she had something new in store. And it seems like they were all correct. 

During the live stream on Thursday, March 13 night, Nicki confirmed 'Beam Me Up Scotty' would be released on major streaming services, and would include a fresh track named 'Seeing Green' featuring Drake and Lil Wayne. Drizzy joined the broadcast just minutes before midnight and explained why he had sent the song to Nicki. “It didn’t feel right, you not being on it ...” he said. “Nobody does this shit better than you … We miss your presence, we miss your bars.” Nicki added: “[Drake] got me out of my writer’s block. He sent me something and it made me feel so competitive again …”

Apart from Drake and Lil Wayne's collab 'Seeing Green,' the new version of 'Beam Me Up Scotty' features two other new tracks, titled, 'Fractions' and 'Crocodile Teeth (Remix)' with Skillibeng. The DJ Holiday-hosted project was released on April 18, 2009, and marked Nicki’s third mixtape. She previously released 2007’s 'Playtime Is Over' and 2008’s Sucka Free.

Nicki spoke about the tape during a 2009 interview with MTV News, saying she was motivated to create 'Beam Up Scotty' after she went on a tour with the Young Money crew: “It made me hungry. That’s what inspired me and the music for the Beam Me Up Scotty tape — the ‘I Am Music’ tour.” She also stated that the effort was intended to showcase her skills as an artist, as she felt talent was being overshadowed by her image. “I was OK, but I wasn’t focusing on the music. I was doing pictures and stuff like that, so people knew me more for pictures than my music,” she said. “But with the Beam Me Up Scotty mixtape, they have to take me seriously as an artist. So, I would say maybe a year ago, I started sharpening my skills. Recently, I’ve been singing more. Now it’s official — it’s going down like ‘Town Julie Brown.’”

As soon as the announcement came to light, fans of all the three artists started talking about the latest album. One person asked, "This mixtape Orginally came out in 2009? Nicki Minaj has lived many lives before she became A House Hold Name she was destroying the underground music scene." While one fan said, "There were so many times I considered dropping out of college and @NICKIMINAJ got me through.. today I graduate with my bachelors degree and the queen drops my favorite body of work from her?!! THANK YOU" 



Sharing the lyrics, one fan said, "It's the weak bars thinking that she's dissing for me I graded your homework bi**h mission complete Bit**es wanna be around me but I don't wanna be with them(ah..almost all those fake friends felt this part) Fraction by @NICKIMINAJ is on repeat mehhn I'm feeling this song." Complementing the three artists, another one said, "You can hear the lyrical growth in @NICKIMINAJ @Drake and @LilTunechi on Seeing Green the big 3"



Referring to Nicki's lyrics about the "tiktok" talent, one person said, "Nicki said "these b*tches time Tik Tok'n betta stick to dancing".. shoutout to the Tik Tok dancers #NickiDay #NickiMinaj #SeeingGreen #Nicki." And one fan said, "What a beautiful day just enjoy the music once again. Nicki Day it is!! @NICKIMINAJ" Another said, "lil wayne, drake & nicki minaj. best rap trio of all time!"
