Rap artists are exceptional businessmen, evidently. That’s why it was no surprise to see such heavy-hitting, well-respected rap artists on an album like this. Nicki sells records. Lots of them. I would assume mostly to teens and people who are easily convinced something is good if they see it pop up on every website in their bookmarks. I must admit I don’t have the most refined musical taste but surely nobody in their right mind over 17 years of age actually enjoys this music. Do they? Can you really imagine 2 Chainz listening to this album front to back as he drives his ferrari around getting it? I definitely can’t. Sorry Nicki, stick to the cameos.
