Caribbean Roots: Mavado ‘Give It All To Me’ Featuring Nicki Minaj

#TaniaOnTheScene - Nicki Minaj is at it again! This time she’s making an appearance on her fellow islander’s song. Mavado‘s ”Give It All To Me” featuring Nicki Minaj, is a great summer song.  Mavado, the ‘Gully God,’ does performs his usual combination of singing and rapping in patois, while Nicki joins in with her bad gal style. According to directlyrics.com:

“Give It All To Me’ is a nice, chill dancehall number. Nicki Minaj has one full proper rap verse on the song that starts just before ‘minute 1′. She the come backs to sing the bridge. Nice blend between Mavado and Nicki’s flows. And cute reference the ‘Pink Friday’ star had to fellow ‘islander,’ Rihanna, shouting, ‘Carribbean girls run it, ask RiRi.”

Mavado is currently signed to Nicki Minaj’s label mate “We The Best” Music, owned by her wannabe fiancé DJ Khaled. Mavado is constantly working on new music with We The Best, so it’s unclear whether “Give It All To Me” will appear on a new mixtape or an upcoming album.

Check out “Give It All To Me” below.
