When the trailer for the new live-action film, Barbie, released on April 4, fans were confused when they realized rap superstar, Nicki Minaj, was not in the film.

The “Super Freaky Girl” artist has built her brand around the popular doll, and even nicknamed her fanbase “The Barbz.”

In fact, the rapper has shouted out the doll in numerous songs like:

Barbie Dreams

“I’m just Playin’, But I’m Sayin’ (Barbie Dreams).”

Barbie Tingz

“Barbie Tingz, That’s Barbie Tingz.”

Roman Reloaded

 There was a lawsuit against the company for using the trademark, Barbie

According to Billboard, one of the flavors for the Rap Snacks was “Barbie-Que.” The toy company, Mattel, who created the Barbie doll, sued Rap Snacks for copyright infringement, which forced the snack brand to change from “Barbie-Que” to “Bar-B-Quin.”

Shortly after, the toy company asked the judge to dismiss the case after the snack food brand decided to pay a settlement to the popular toy company.

The doll sported vibrant pink hair, the rap mogul’s signature look. The dress the doll wore was made out of a light pink tulle material with diamonds and a Barbie chain. This marks the last time the Barbie brand has acknowledged the “Moment 4 Life” singer.
