One of the appeals of Nicki Minaj's music is its everything-at-onceness. Whether its her multiple personalities or the multiple genres of music that pop up within the same song, Nicki's music is kind of like a dizzying carnival of sound. You never know what you're going to hear.
Case in point: Nicki's new track, "Blazin,'" from her forthcoming debut album, Pink Friday. It features not only Kanye West but also a big dollop of Brat Pack (shouts to Ally Sheedy!), sampling "The Breakfast Club" soundtrack classic, "Don't You Forget About Me" by Simple Minds.
"Blazin'" is dizzyin'; Minaj raps at a breakneck pace, with the beat a skittering tumble of sounds featuring the iconic melody and "hey hey hey hey" from Simple Minds.
Kanye comes in and makes it work, lyrically, stating: "I think I'm Marc Jacobs," referencing Rick Ross' famed "I think I'm Big Meech" line from his hit "BMF."
