Tyga is currently gearing up for the release of his new album Careless World: Rise of the Last King, which is set for a February 21st release. During an interview with XXLMag.com, he reflected on collaborating with Nas and Nicki Minaj for the LP and how the duets came to be.
Tyga first spoke on collaborating with Esco for “Kings and Queens,” which also features Wale.
“Yeah man, I sent Nas a song like six months ago and I never heard back from him but out of the blue, he called me like, ‘Yo, you doing your thing. I want to be a part of what you doing, I like everything you doing. Keep working hard,” he said. “I sent him the ‘Kings and Queens’ that night and he did it the next day. I was like, that shit is crazy. Nas always talks that shit. The song, man, [his bars] added the cherry on top. It’s a real classic song. People are gonna like it. I wanna think of a dope video. The storyline of the song, the whole King and Queens [theme], it’s motivational.”
He also touched on the song “Muthafucka Up,” which features his YMCMB peer Nicki Minaj. “The song for Nicki is called ‘Muthafucka Up,’” he said. “I don’t know what they gonna call it on the radio. Maybe they might call it ‘Up.’ That one is one of them going in type songs. Like how Wayne had ‘A Milli.’ One of those Young Money records that people love. We got a crazy visual for that one, too. I don’t wanna give it away. I’ve been doing a lot of features for everyone.”
