It’s been three years since Paper magazine first tried to “break the internet” with a cover featuring a nude Kim Kardashian. Now they’ve done it again, with a nearly-nude Nicki Minaj. The reigning queen of rap appears not just once, but three times on the cover, and the three Nickis are engaged in a little … Minaj-a-trois. The internet loves it. If Kardashian was a meme-maker’s muse, the triple-Nickis are all three muses at once.

This cover is obviously fine art, so it’s only natural that it’s inspiring the internet’s fine artists:

And whatever this is:
The iconic cover has brought new life to an old meme: “Dan Nicky your bobbie s.” This stems from a horny admirer’s failed attempt to type “Damn Nicki, your boobies” into the comment section of one of Minaj’s Instagram photos, back in 2014. But the new photos have brought the meme back in a big way. “Dan Nicky your bobbie s” is all over Twitter again.
have we reached peak "Dan Nicky your Bobbie s"? https://t.co/yWqLQIpTlx

The Paper cover might not even be Nicki’s most meme-able photo, though. Remember what people did with the cover of her Anaconda single? If you don’t, you can just Google it:
Outside of Drake, no rapper has ever been so memeable.
