Beyoncé is the Best Rapper On DJ Khaled's New Track "Top Off"
JAY-Z and Future are here too, but yet again, Bey's the star.
Beyoncé is a musical dodecahedron, in that she has many sides. There is Ballad Singing Beyoncé, whereby Beyoncé destroys everything in her path with the sheer power of her gorgeous vocal; there is Dancer Beyoncé, where Beyoncé's physicality in itself becomes art, and there is World's Greatest Entertainer Beyoncé, whereby she somehow packs her talent into a few minutes of phenomenal showtime. There are also loads more Beyoncés – perhaps even infinite Beyoncés – but perhaps best of all, however, is Rapper Beyoncé, who only comes out occasionally, but whenever she does, she manages to knock every other rapper out of the park with her skill and flow.
That's who we hear on "Top Off," the new DJ Khaled track (and the first from his upcoming album Father of Asahd, for which a release date is not yet set), which features Bey, JAY-Z, and Future. And while Future and JAY-Z are on top form – for his part, Jay references his recent $91,000 wine bill, and gets a "Free Meek" in – it's Beyoncé who comes out on top, because of course she does. Marvel at her skill:
My body, my ice, my cash, all real, I'm a triple threat
Fuck it up and then leave, come back, fuck it up and leave again
Top off the coupe and it look like Freaknik
In the hood, hollerin', "Free Meek"
Two deep, it's just me and Jay
Just posted in them courtside seats
Woo! I'm like hol' up...
Woo! I might roll up
If they're tryna party with the queen
They gon' have to sign a non-disclosure, ayy
It surely really is only a matter of time until we get a whole Beyoncé rap album, right? Right?
