Just when you thought Nicki Minaj's videos couldn't get any wilder, the Young Money rapper throws a curveball with this comparatively straightforward new clip for "Freedom," from Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. The video fits the mid-tempo, introspective cut like a glove as we see Minaj getting contemplative in various settings – amid wreckage in the middle of the desert, trekking through the woods, atop her throne – while the black-and-white color scheme slowly morphs until it's bursting with color.
