Coi Leray cites Nicki Minaj’s legendary “Monster” verse to flex her own rising status, revealing how much it costs to land a verse.
It’s reached the point where Leray has become somewhat of a household name, and though she has yet to release an official debut album, her price has already reached a significant level. Like many before her, Leray opted to flex the cost of a verse, circling back to the immortal braggadocio of Nicki Minaj circa “Monster” to emphasize her point.

“What nicki say?” writes Coi. “50k for a verse no album out? Don’t forget, I still never dropped an album.” Though the invocation of Minaj’s name drew out the presence of the Barbz — who weren’t exactly keen on Leray’s citation of their Queen — many fans were quick to praise the melodist’s undeniable rise.
It’s entirely that Leray found herself inspired to flex in the wake of “Big Purr’s” continued success; as she was quick to point out on Twitter, the Pooh Shiesty-assisted single is well on its way to gold certification. Don’t be surprised to see it lining the tracklist of her upcoming debut, which should bolster the numbers quite nicely for that essential first-week tally.
50k for a verse, no album out. Not too shabby for Coi Leray. Do you foresee that price tag rising even higher?
