Sorry But Nicki Minaj Wasn’t Finished, Releases New Track With Nas (LISTEN TO AUDIO)

Nicki Minaj’s long awaited and delayed and it almost got released but didn’t and then it did fourth studio album finally dropped on Friday.... But it wasn’t all she had in store for fans. Saturday night Funk Flex debuted another brand new track from rap’s queenmander-in-chief, ‘Sorry’, on his Hot 97 show. The song is the collaboration with Nas that finally explains what they’ve actually been doing on all those platonic sleepovers. The track is thought to be the one that was awaiting clearance from Tracy Chapman, whose phone number apparently no one had, so it wasn’t included in the original release of Queen. But hey if she’s already talking about changing the hook (and name) of Ganja Burns, there’s no reason she can’t just add a whole track a day later. She is The Queen after all.

Nicki Minaj -Coco Chanel- ft. Foxy Brown (LISTEN TO AUDIO)

Nicki Minaj and Foxy Brown are old war buddies; Foxy has come to Nicki’s defense in feuds against Lil Kim and Remy Ma, and Nicki has dubbed Foxy “the only rapper she competes with.” They’re both Trinidadian-Americans from neighboring New York boroughs who have fought the testosterone-powered rap paradigm from the inside. They team up for the first time on “Coco Chanel,” from Nicki’s new album Queen, which she unceremoniously released today a week early. Through interplay, the two formidable rappers find the space where their styles meet and complement one another, building on years of mutual admiration. They bridge a generational divide with big-city swagger and island cool. With “Coco Chanel,” they take a classic dancehall riddim and warp it into a mean-mugging rap flexer. At her most dynamic, Nicki is a puncher who lands heavier blows than anybody. She has struggled to find balance and perspective in recent years, but she summons some of that command in these verses. As the drums stagger below, she unloads stacking cadences, emphasizing what her goons are capable of: “If they take your cocaine then they making crack of it/If they grab your gold chain then they make a plaque of it,” she snarls. It’s a far cry from her more delightfully unconventional writing, without the glow of her immensely colorful personality, but shows she is still capable of stinging barbs. Not to be outdone, Foxy Brown musters some of her hardest raps in a decade, leaning into the sway of the beat and bounding forth with threats for rap rivals. The two artists play off each other well, reveling in their mutual island roots and trading lingo. It’s that chemistry that makes “Coco Chanel” stand out as the crown jewel on Queen.

Listen: Mobb Deep – ‘Greatness’ (Unreleased)

Mobb Deep is forever. This is exactly what DJ Absolut wants us to remember as he digs in the crates for “Greatness.” Absolut gave us an exclusive Mobb song “What You Think” shortly after Prodigy’s passing. “Greatness” is a part of Absolut’s “#DJAbsolutMixtapeMonday” series. It sounds like the Mobb Deep that we’re all used to; grimey and gutter. It’s a very braggadocious track in every sense of the word (“you couldn’t see me with Slick Rick’s good eye”). It sounds like it definitely could’ve made the cut on an album around the Infamy era, though I’m not sure when this song was recorded. I love the fact that DJ Absolut is keeping the Mobb Deep name and brand alive. Prodigy may have passed, but “Greatness” is forever. R.I.P. Prodigy.
