Hit the Roller Rink with Rae Sremmurd & Nicki Minaj in "Throw Sum Mo"
To do a total lane change from Kendrick Lamar's To Pimp a Butterfly—surprise-released overnight, blowing our minds—we've got "Throw Sum Mo." The Rae Sremmurd track's got Nicki Minaj, ascendent weirdo Young Thug, and the requisite rap video Beats by Dre. product placement. It's from January's debut album SremmLife.
Like Beyoncé's "Blow" video, "Throw Sum Mo" is set at an all-neon-everything roller-rink. Except instead of a bunch of women having fun and twerking with zero men present, it's got Slim Jimmy and Swae Lee throwing money onto butts, smacking butts with vigor to spare, and also some pole dancing. There might be a Migos cameo.
Onika's contributions here aren't Pinkprint-worthy—or really even repeat-listen worthy, if you're here for her, since she's only on the hook—but we're always down to hang with her, no matter what quality roller-rink we're linking up at. (Plus, we just heard from her last week on Maroon 5's "Sugar" remix.)
And Young Thug…is Young Thug. The latest—and maybe most unpredictable—ATLien.
