There’s no shortage of material out there from the artists assembled on Swizz Beatz’s freshly leaked track, “Hands Up,” but hearing all of them in top form together in the same place is, well, priceless. Lil Wayne is first up with a damned clever bit of aerodynamic wordplay (“Your girl is my biggest fan — windmill, nigga”) before rapping about cunnilingus for the umpteenth time in uncomfortable proximity to an Alicia Keys joke.
Then in comes Nicki Minaj, reportedly throwing shade on Iggy Azalea with, “I got little bunny rabbits in my backyard / Fuck a funny style fraud, tryna act hard / Uhn — you my son, no daddy, you a bastard / Plus you got mad miles on ya vag card.” Oof. Rick Ross puts his back into the next verse, which involves some expert-level hollering (“I can tell by your shoes that your ponytail’s new”) via hair extensions. And 2 Chainz closes us out by, well, being 2 Chainz.
