The summer starts now. After a surprise announcement, DJ Khaled unleashes “Top Off,” a powerhouse collaboration with JAY-Z, Beyoncé, and Future that’s set to appear on his forthcoming 11th album, Father Asahd.
Boasting production from Khaled and Joe Zarillo, the new banger allows Hndrxx to set it f with an amped-up chorus. “I took the top f the Maybach,” he raps. “I see the popo behind me, I ain’t gon’ stop.”
JAY-Z takes the baton from there and delivers a wide-ranging verse about everything from Meek Mill’s ongoing legal issues to an apparent George Zimmerman reference.
“Free my ni**a, Meek Mill,” he raps. “Ni**as can’t wheelie in this free world / Meanwhile Georgie Porgie sinnin’ and sendin’ me threats / Save your breath, you couldn’t beat a flight steps / Try that shit with a grown man / I’ll kill that fuckboy with my own hands.”
Following Pluto’s infectious hook, “B” delivers a show-stopping verse her own that also highlights Meek Mill’s case.
“I’m the only lady here, still the realest ni**a in the room,” she raps. “I break the internet, top two, and I ain’t number two / 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 f the coupe and it look like Freaknik / In the hood, hollerin’, ‘Free Meek’ / Two deep, it’s just me and JAY.”
“Top Off” is the first single f Khaled’s upcoming album, Father Asahd. It follows his Jigga and Queen Bey collaboration “Shining” f last year’s Grateful and Hov and Hndrxx’s “I Got the Keys” f 2016’s Major Key.
