For her debut album Pink Friday, Nicki Minaj teamed up with Eminem on the standout track “Roman’s Revenge.” But now the rising star has leaked a new version of the track (available on iTunes next week) that features a guest spot from her Young Money mentor Lil Wayne. Head over here to hear it.
“Roman’s Revenge 2.0” is a replica of the original, with the exception of Wayne substituting Em for his guest verse. But it works: Weezy manages to match Em’s hot-headed energy and literally runs out of breath as he rhymes, “I’m just pluckin’ my ashes / I’m a-puffin’ and passin’/ I’m a-fuckin’ that ass!”
Wayne has wasting no time working on new projects since getting out of Rikers Island in November. The rapper most recently filmed a video for his first post-prison track “6 Foot 7 Foot” and he’ll release his highly anticipated Tha Carter IV later this year.
