MTV News caught up with label mates Drake and Nicki Minaj recently in New Orleans before a show on the I Am Music 2 Tour. In a twist instead of having correspondent Sway interview the two superstars the two rappers asked each other a few questions each.
Drizzy wanted to know if Nicki was planning on dropping any new material any time soon. She responded, “Well, you know, Drizzy, I have been keeping everything sort of stored inside of me. So I’m just in complete tour mode. I’ve been getting a lot of requests to do some features, but if I can’t give myself wholeheartedly, you know, I always pass. I definitely never want to be just doing too many features that they start getting watered-down and I’m not giving my whole, true self…[But] when my Young Money and Cash Money family calls me I hope on the jet and get it done ” When pressed by Drake to commit to whether she would make time to record a cameo on his upcoming sophomore release, Take Care, Nicki playfully answered, “I gotta check if I can pencil you in.”
Next it was Drake’s turn on the hotseat. Minaj asked the Canadian emcee how it felt to be on stage and back with his friends on the roster. He enthused, “I truly enjoy these moments, especially being in New Orleans. Actually, New Orleans was the first place that I ever really realized that my music was getting out there. I remember walking outside the W, and there was a guy out there selling mixtapes and he had So Far Gone. I couldn’t believe it. I wasn’t even mad. You usually think you’ll be mad when there’s a bootlegger, but I was super excited.” The I Am Music 2 Tour hits Phoenix tomorrow night and continues across the country until May 1st.
