Thoughts behind the mix: Right now, Nicki is fraught with the different influences in her life. She grew up on the compound, and she grew up far too quickly. I included some 80s music and covers to represent that time in Nicki’s life, and now, as she tries to recover it. Pervasive through the mix is the theme of folk belief: Nicki has always clung to her system of belief and now more than ever she is struggling to find where she fits into that system. Additionally, there are some songs that fit the mix tonally, which support Nicki’s mindset–pulling away from the family, struggling to find her place.
