Lupe Fiasco vs. Nicki Minaj – Sound Off
Lupe Fiasco's 'I Don't Wanna Care Right Now' has cemented him as the winner of our Sound Off for two days in a row now, beating out rap newcomers J. Cole and Big Sean. Now, Fiasco will take on another fresh game player to the rap scene in the form of Nicki Minaj and her newly released track 'Roman in Moscow,' which will appear on her 2012 'Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded' album.
For his single 'I Don't Wanna Care Right Now,' which features MDMA, Fiasco raps quickly over an uptempo, dance-inducing beat of fast-paced drums, thumping bass, and high-pitched synth. Fiasco finds a great balance between hip-hop and electro music on the tune, which appears on his acclaimed LP 'Lasers.' On the other hand, Minaj delivers braggadocios lyrics in the style of her snarky alter ego Roman Zolanski. The beat has an urgent feel -- with sirens, hard-hitting drums and swelling synth.
