It’s not Nicki Minaj’s fault that she’s the most in-demand featured guest in hip-hop. (So much so that her appearances are being faked). But the fashionable Young Money MC has more than a few solo tracks on the way. Check her new “Blow Your Mind” — built on a clever sample from Prince’s classic “Darling Nikki” and the Harajuku Barbie’s own tongue-twisting verses. “This is the anthem,” Nicki says. Let’s hear Jay Sean try to cover this one.
We dig the Missy Elliott-style beat, but Nicki sounds a little lackluster here. But there’s no need to wig out, Barbz. This is a jam from DJ Haze’s mixtape Still Countin’ Money 3, and there’s a good chance she’ll come with stronger material for Pink Friday. (In fact, she already has).
