Swizz Beatz – ‘Hands Up’ Feat. Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross & 2 Chainz

DJ Khaled, you’ve got competition. Usually it’s the furry Miami mogul’s job to draft the most predictable starting five for an all-too-obvious attempt at a club smash. But for his latest solo single, titled ‘Hands Up,’ it’s Swizz Beatz who calls on Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross and 2 Chainz for the chart-ready party anthem.

Swizzy’s uptempo beat — which abruptly jumps between classic rap braggadocio and girly pop throughout — works well for the YMCMB pair, who devour the first-half of the track with equally playful verses. As for Tity Boi and Rick Ross, though, they fail to find the rhythm and subsequently get swallowed whole. The only thing missing is a dribbling French Montana hook.

But what the hell? Summer’s nearly over so you’re probably looking for a cheap track to drown your sorrows in.
