Reddittor joshlamb took six of Minaj’s hits, including "Starships" and "Beez in the Trap," and slowed them way, way down. You gotta hear this.

As the rumor goes, if you listen to Led Zeppelin’s "Stairway to Heaven" in reverse, you can hear a haunting homage to Satan.

Equally as terrifying: slowing down the songs of rapper Nicki Minaj. Instead of Minaj’s squirrel-pitched sorcery, you hear Jay-Z rapping as if he’s had one too many sips of Cristal. 

That is what Reddit user joshlamb discovered Thursday when he took six of Minaj’s hits, including "Starships" and "Beez in the Trap," and slowed them way, way down.

Since posting a link to his Soundcloud remixes on Reddit, the tracks have collected more than 370,000 listens combined

“This is precisely what the internet was invented for,” steve0suprem0 wrote on Reddit. “This is the best thing I've read all day at work. Can't wait to get home and try it out. Fuckin' saved.”
