Published Jan 17, 2011Nicki Minaj's Pink Friday was a successful pop record, spawning some hits for the break-out rap diva. What it lacked, however, was the roaring grit of the mixtapes that brought her there. The only track that came close was "Roman's Revenge," a venomous Eminem collaboration that stripped away the album's pop sheen and let Minaj show her teeth. Now, label boss Lil Wayne has jumped on the track for "Roman's Revenge 2.0."
While Eminem's verse did the trick on the original version, the addition of Lil Wayne sends "Roman's Revenge" over the edge better than any nasally Marshall Mathers rapping ever could. Frantically paced and over the top, Weezy is at the top of his game, not only breathing life into the original track but further amping up our excitement for his upcoming Tha Carter IV.
