My niggas rockin’ gold, like we stuck back in the ’80s, beloved rapper-singer Future Vandross belts on this unreleased collaboration with Nicki Minaj. He brings out that inner ’80s icon with a sample of George Michael’s “Careless Whisper“–a love-stricken vibe not too far off from Future’s own biggest hit “Turn on the Lights” or the title track of his last album Honest. While Future might be stuck in the Reagan era, Nicki rattles off a guest verse that recalls her most outlandish tracks off Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded: if I was a nigga I’d be getting my dick sucked, she comments. Her recent toned-down look may be here today, gone tomorrow, but her raunch flow is gladly here to stay.
