Nicki Minaj Pink Friday + Performing w/ Rhianna, and Drake

Posted by Ms.Tris On November - 30 - 2010

Happy Tuesday! How was your holiday week? I had a fun time, and I did not over eat yaay :)…

I had time to really listen to Nicki Minaj’s 1st official release “Pink Friday”. Again Young Money has shocked me. Like Drake, I didn’t expect so much singing from such a witty emcee. Smart move by Lil Wayne signing them. Both Drake and Nicki can sing. I am not mad with the cd at all. It’s been on repeat in the ride since I got it. It’s different, and at times she reminds me somewhat of Busta Ryhmes, when using all the crazy flows.

I did notice that Pink Friday incorporates a lot of pop type melodies through out. Heavy use of synths on almost every song. Some of you may wonder how to create the synth sounds heard in tracks like “Moment 4 Life ft Drake”. The sound I’m referring to comes in around 7 secs:

Well if you have Reason it can be achieved with the Malstrom or Subtractor. There are even a few free vst instruments that will help you come close like the Ugo Audio Rez2 or Superwave8. For the hardware lovers, the Alesis micron has almost the exact sound used in “Moment 4 Life”.

This is surely a theme song for me, I love uplifting songs that make me feel inspired to keep grinding with the music. I am also loving “Fly” featuring Rhianna. Did Rhi Rhi blaze that hook or what?… Check out some live footage from last Thursdays Thanksgiving show:
