Matthew Stueber (and His Mom)

YouTube Channel: MatthewStueber444

Stueber has only done one other cover (another Minaj tune), but went viral with his rendition of "Bees in the Trap" thanks to the guest appearance by his mom, whose expressionless delivery of lines like "a hundred motherfuckers can't tell me nothing" is strangely captivating. Plus, Matthew does a better job with the verses than most folks who've tackled it on YouTube and he obviously has real love for Minaj and the tune.
