If you’re anything like us, you probably like your Young Money singles grimy and bitter rather than floaty and poppy. If that’s the case, then you, too, probably can’t help digging “Y U Mad?”, the lead single from Birdman’s forthcoming Bigger Than Life album. It features the Young Money CEO teaming up with two of his closest pals, Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne, for a goofy-but-angry joint full of shit talking, thudding drums, and equal parts quotables and groan-inducing punch lines. Even though Nicki does spit a few dunce cap-worthy bars, this is how we’d like to hear her rapping. She keeps the animated vocals to a minimum and just straight spits, something she hasn’t really been doing too much of lately.
