"40 Bars" is the ninth track on Nicki Minaj's first mixtape, Playtime is Over. Minaj later re-used some of the lyrics in "BedRock" ("He pressin me like button downs on a Friday night"). The recording is an original rap over the beat of "Banned from T.V." by Noreaga, Nature, Cam'ron and The Lox.

Freestyle videoEdit

The song was originally a freestyle by Minaj, who later re-recorded for the Playtime Is Over mixtape. In the freestyle video, Minaj raps a cappella on a staircase with her friends TT and Candace sitting behind her.[1] At the 2011 BET Awards, Minaj described being "discovered" by Lil Wayne while rapping on a staircase; it is very possible that this freestyle is the beginning of relationship with Wayne and Young Money.[2]
