NickiMinaj_NoFlexZoneCover

Nicki Minaj’s latest freestyle has her tackling the street anthem “No Flex Zone” from Mississippi brothers Rae Sremmurd. While it unsurprisingly doesn’t take much for Nicki to outrap the youngsters, it’s humorous to note she does with more bass in her voice than the original. No word yet on when her Pinkprint project will be dropping.

Game gets to be one of the luckiest emcees in Hip-Hop for a few minutes as he plays Nicki Minaj’s love interest for her “Pills N Potions” visuals. The special effects are a little cheesy at certain points, but overall they fit with the pop rhythms. You can purchase “Pills N Potions” HERE.

You didn’t really believe that spiel Nicki was giving about The Pink Print being a complete return to her Hip-Hop roots, did you? The Young Money queen has made legions of fans over the last few years appealing to pop trends, so it would make little sense for her to alienate that segment of her diverse fanbase. The hook and production tips it about 60/40 in favor of her pop leanings, so it’ll be interesting to see if this single still finds a consistent home on traditional Hip-Hop stations.

“Pills N Potions” will be available later today on iTunes.

Soulja Boy has the easiest job in the world on this one. Despite of the highly repititve refrain from SB, Nicki Minaj gives another example of her high-powered flow by destroying her umpteenth trap beat. Some guys caught feelings off her “Looking Ass Niggas” track, so for this one Nicki mostly takes aim at underachieving females. With news that an official single is coming within two weeks, this will probably serve as one of, if not her last, street single before the media push for The Pink Print goes into overdrive.

Straight out of the 90s Busta Rhymes video playbook, the Young Money camp drops a surreal video “Senile.” The track is included on their compilation Rise of an Empire.

It was touch and go over the last few days, but Lil Wayne has finally made good on his Labor Day Weekend promise in delivering the fifth entry into the Dedication series. Hosted by DJ Drama, this tape has a little more intrigue than recent ones as Wayne admitted a few weeks ago that his rhymes have been subpar. He vowed to fans to start taking his craft seriously again.

Included on this staggering 29-track tape are guest spots from The Weeknd, Chance the Rapper, Jae Millz, 2 Chainz, Birdman, T.I. and others. And as with previous entries, Wayne picks all the recent hits, underground and mainstream, to rock over. Check the samples and download.

If your impression of the Rich Gang album is that it’s just a thrown together mashup of MMG and Young Money throwaways, this video for the Rick Ross-featuring “50 Plates” will do little to change your opinion. Typical beat and typical rhymes mire this one in mediocrity.
