Super producer Swizz Beatz is back in the studio working on a new project, and he’s released new music today. Swizz Beatz’s “Hands Up” featuring Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, and Lil Wayne, has a hard hitting beat that is certain to be a hit in the clubs.
According to vibe.com:
“Before the summer officially comes to an end, Swizz Beatz has one more trick up his sleeve with ‘Hands Up.’ Last night, HOT97’s Funkmaster Flex blasted off Swizzy’s latest monster collabo, which features Rick Ross, Nicki Minaj, 2 Chainz, and Lil’ Wayne. Get ready to let loose one more time.”
Nicki Minaj was doing her “girl power,” thing again, as she continues to stand out on tracks among her male counterparts. Everybody may be focused on Kendrick Lamar and his “Control” verse, and it’s been a great summer with releases from Jay Z, J. Cole, Wale and Drake on the way, however, a case could be made that Nicki is the hottest rapper in the game right now. Not only is she the most sought out rapper to featured right now, but she doesn’t disappoint.
“Hands Up” also appears to have more star power than Swizz has listed. The official track listing doesn’t include Swizz’s wife, Alicia Keys, but most people are certain that those are her vocals on the chorus.
