Yo Gotti ft. Nicki Minaj “Down In the DM (Remix)”

Mixtape Nicki is back (although she never left) and gets down in the DMs of Yo Gotti and his ubiquitous thirst anthem. While Gotti was able to catch the attention of his crush Angela Simmons with his shoutout on the track, Nicki shoots down the dreams of those hoping to one day land in her DMs. “If it go down in your DM, then baby boy, you lucky/ Cause 99.9 percent of these fuckboys can’t fuck me,” she snaps. Later, the Head-Barbie-in-Charge even rang the BeyHive alarm, bringing to mind that “even Queen Bey had to tell ‘em I’m the queen.”

Future “Fly Shit Only”

Future Hendrix comes alive on the intro to EVOL, his forthcoming album. Over guitar plucks and a volley of thundering bass booms, Fewtch evokes his rock-and-roll spirit (hence, Hendrix) while crooning lines like, "I’m gone off these medicals... Maybe one day I’mma get out the drank."

A$AP Ferg "Spice Girl$"

Ferg sends out a special shoutout to the ultimate girl group of the '90s. Previously unreleased, the track was created back in 2011 and finds Ferg offering his mission statement: "I'm trying to be as famous as the Spice Girls." There's nothing like dreaming big.
