The song ‘Fractions’ secured the 10th spot on the list whereas, ‘Seeing Green’ was listed at number five for Lil Wayne’s verse. ‘Fractions’ did not come with a catchy hook/chorus which is a usual practice in songs. Nicki Minaj dived straight into the verse with her tight rhyming schemes. On the one long verse, the multiple award-winning rapper spits, “I put these bi**hes on game, they should be kissin’ my feet/ I tried to give ‘em some press, they tried to say it was beef” referencing her feuds with various artists.

Nicki Minaj’s song ‘Seeing Green’ got all the hype, thanks to a skilled verse from the hip-hop heavyweight Lil Wayne. In the song, he raps, “How I go from bars on the screen door to the TV screen?/ Don't ask me, but never change the channel/ Gucci flannel, Gucci socks, Gucci sandals/ Gucci teddy bears, and pandas, not fake/ Propaganda 'bout to blow out the candle” Nick Minaj had re-released her 2009 mixtape ‘Beam Me Up Scotty’ in May 2021 after taking a hiatus from music due to her pregnancy. The mixtape peaked at Billboard 200 making it the highest-charting reissued mixtape and the highest-debuting female rap mixtape in history. Stacked with a whopping 23 tracks, Minaj joined hands with artists like Bobby V, Brinx, Busta Rhymes, Drake, Gucci Mane, Mack Maine, Gudda Gudda, Jae Millz, Lil Wayne, Red Café, Ricky Blaze, Rocko, Ron Browz, and Shanell.
