Don’t close the book on the best jam of the summer yet.

Hot 97′s Funkmaster Flex premiered the latest VIP Swizz Beatz posse track “Hands Up” last night. Lil Wayne, Nicki MinajRick Ross, and 2 Chainz all show up for a verse, and even though Bawse says his crib looks like Kim Dot Com’s and Weezy talks about how he’s got a diamonds in his teeth (“Bluetooth, homie”), the jeweled crown goes Nicki’s verse on here.

Swizz Beatz takes a cue from Kanye’s “Monster” for the production, and just like she did on “Monster” against the sparse 808 bass, that’s always where Minaj flexes her best. Check out the track above (via Vibe).

When last we heard from Swizz Beatz, he was producing Alicia Keys‘ new song “New Day” and when last we heard from 2 Chainz, he was being arrested in Oklahoma for narcotics possession.

Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj has been throwing down some of her best verses this year, most recently on the DJ Khaled track, “I Wanna Be With You” featuring Rick Ross and Future.
