Nicki Minaj has always had a knack for the classroom flow -- at least according to Better Education Place, who named her Teacher of the Year -- but this lesson is best left for her regular sparring partner Lil' Kim.

It comes in the form of "Stupid Hoe," a new single from Minaj's second album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, due on Valentine's Day.

The chorus, and general sentiment for this one, is "You a stupid hoe." And over an evolving, spare beat that would fit right in on M.I.A.'s Vicki Leex mixtape, she ferociously dumps the Queen Bee in detention for not being a pal -- which has been a much blogged-about discussion topic for the past couple years.

"Stupid hoe is my enemy/ stupid hoe is so whack/ stupid hoe should've befriended me/ then she coulda probably came back," the Female Weezy raps bitterly towards the end. Again, probably not something that we'd recommend for grade-schoolers, but every kid is going to have to learn what a stupid hoe is one of these days.
