Nicki Minaj just put the hump in hump day. The rapper, 31, put her best assets on full display when she released her wild new NSFW "Anaconda" music video at midnight on Wednesday, Aug. 20. 

The single takes inspiration from Sir Mix-a-Lot's 1992 classic "Baby Got Back," specifically riffing off of his line, "My anaconda don't want none / Unless you've got buns, hun." Minaj echoed the booty theme in the lyrics to "Anaconda" — and in a big, big way in the new music video.

The raunchy clip opens with a shot of a scantily clad Minaj in the jungle, surrounded by buxom women. Footage of booty-shaking then kicks off the video over the original audio of Sir Mix-a-Lot rapping. See more over the top pics of Nicki's video here.

Sir Mix-a-Lot, 51, recently called the sample "good stuff," adding to VladTV that the "Anaconda" video is the "new and improved version" of his own "Baby Got Back" video.

While Mix's video was famously full of backsides, Minaj stepped up to the challenge, offering nearly five minutes of twerking goodness. Minaj's dance partners in the "Anaconda" video are largely women, but she mixes it up toward the end of the clip when Drake enters a scene to receive a lap dance from the female rapper. 

"Anaconda" is the latest cut off of Minaj's upcoming third album The Pinkprint. The project was led by the track "Pills n Potions" and is expected to hit stores later this year.

"Sonically I think the album sounds so amazing," Minaj told 97.1 AMP Radio of The Pink Print. "There are so many surprises on the album. I had Drake come by the studio the other day and he was like 'Oh my god, you're talking about new stuff, I'm so proud of you.' And that's what I'm most excited about. I'm speaking about new things on this album. I'm excited I'm not allowing anyone else to define what the album is going to be."
