Though it's almost certain that they were not on the same sets during the making of this video, Lil Uzi Vert and Nicki Minaj have released a visual for their collab on the remix of "The Way Life Goes." And while I'm kind of sad thinking about what a two person log-cabin moment ft. hunting knives may have looked like, it's pretty great how it is, with everyone doing some extremely on-brand shit. By this I mean: Nicki's looking like the world's most glamorous lumberjack, and Uzi, tied up against a tree as a metaphor for the hopelessness of his love (emo in 2017 thrives, by the way), is, well, Uzi as usual.
Their link-up is a fun one: though it's mostly retired these days, Nicki's demonic Roman persona of old is a fun counterpoint to Uzi's outwardly emo aesthetic and sound—they're like two sides of the same weird-but-mainstream rap coin. Their union is one that makes sense, and the video and track together feel like a baton passer, from one rapper who invoked their dark side, to another who lives every day like it's Halloween. It's beautiful, really.
