On Sunday, Infinity Ward and Activision released a trailer for their upcoming game “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II.” The Grammy-winning rapper appears in the promo alongside an array of popular artists, athletes and actors ― including rapper Lil Baby, comedian Pete Davidson and country singer Kane Brown ― as they rally their “squads” with a call-and-response military cadence to prepare for battle.
In the trailer, Minaj stands in front of a helicopter, sporting a camouflage-printed skirt and flanked by women, as she raps: “Pull up with the Barbz/ Superheroes, no capes.”
The game trailer marks the third collaboration this year between Minaj and Lil Baby, who has also appeared on Minaj’s singles “Do We Have a Problem?” and “Bussin.”
Minaj’s appearance in the trailer ignited chatter on Twitter, with many fans speculating that she may have taken advantage of an endorsement deal that fellow rapper Cardi B failed to snag.
Last month, Cardi, who has had a longstanding public feud with Minaj, alluded to having fumbled an opportunity for “a multi-million dollar” deal with the “Call of Duty” franchise, because of legal troubles stemming from an assault case.
“My stupid decisions from the past caused me to miss out on money now,” Cardi tweeted on Sept. 27. “I had a multi-million dollar Call of Duty deal on the table that I couldn’t take because of court. Guys, think twice about those quick decisions! Lesson learned.”
As of Tuesday afternoon, Cardi hadn’t commented on the “Modern Warfare II” trailer ― which you can watch below.
