"I Am Your Leader"
"Come on a Cone" is a song by Nicki Minaj from her sophomore album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, originally released on April 2, 2012. The song was written by Minaj and Chauncey Hollis. The song was produced by Hit-Boy. It received mainly positive reviews, but it was criticized for its explicit chorus. It is a hardcore hip hop and electro hop song. The music video was released on October 22, 2012 by Grizz Lee, Nicki's cameraman who films a lot of footage of her.
This song features Minaj as Roman Zolanski and is rumored to be another diss song to Lil' Kim, following "Stupid Hoe". Minaj makes references to Ellen DeGeneres ("When you see me on Ellen / Just admit that I'm winning"), Oscar de la Renta ("Front row with Oscar / De la Renta posture"), Anna Wintour ("When I'm sitting with Anna / I'm really sitting with Anna / Ain't no metaphor punchline / I'm really sitting with Anna), Versace ("Do a show for Versace / They request me by name / And if they don't get Nicki / It just won't be the same"), and Cee Lo ("My commercial with Cee Lo...") The chorus is Roman saying in a cartoonish voice the title repeatedly (critics compared it to "Stupid Hoe"). Many critics panned the song saying that the chorus was the main problem of the song. The most imfamous line from the song is, "If you wasn't so ugly / I'd put my dick in your face", and then Minaj breaks in to song, "Dick in your face / Put my dick in your face".
