Wait, Bon Iver isn't rapping on this? Vernon, where's your hot 16! No matter. Four former FADER cover stars and New York's new Sinatra all trying to outdo each other on one track means we all win—though if we had to pick a star on this one, it'd be Nicki, who slithers in from the cut and completely murks everybody. You could be the king but watch the queen conquer. Minaj is New York's new Minelli, maybe? This is from Kanye's forthcoming album with Jay-Z, Watch the Throne, which is not a joke even though he tweeted it shortly after Nicki and Drake's marriage prank.
