Premiere: Future Featuring Nicki Minaj “Rock Star”

Future Nicki MinajIn a new loosie, Future brings along Nicki Minaj for “Rock Star.” The part-crooner, part-rhymer focuses on the rock star lifestyle, but the hook borrows from another genre. You’ll hear pieces of the sax riff from George Michael’s “Careless Whisper” here. Sample clearance issues prevented it from appearing on Honest.

Minaj is taking her inspiration from Minaj, however. The Young Money First Lady sounds aggressive as she drops punchlines over the busy instrumental. “Cuban linked up, cue the brinks truck/ If I was a nigga, I would be gettin’ my dick sucked.” Again, Minaj isn’t bounded by gender when it comes to her dominance.

Give the previously unreleased track, produced by DJ Clue, a listen below.
