Tyga Compares Motherfucker Up Collabo With Nicki Minaj To Lil Waynes A Milli

Tyga recently spoke with XXL about 2 songs that will appear on his forthcoming Careless World album, dropping on February 21st. The first track he talks about is “Kings And Queens” featuring Nas and Wale. Tygaman says Nas recorded his verse in one night! The second track he discusses is “Motherfucker Up” featuring Nicki Minaj. T-Raw says they both go in on this joint and he already has a crazy idea for a music video.

“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 apart of what you doing, I like everything you doing. Keep working hard,” Tyga tells XXL. “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.”

“The song for Nicki is called ‘Motherfucker Up,’” he shares. “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.”

Gudda Gudda Talks About Lil Waynes Incarceration

“I’m almost finished with my Back 2 Guddaville mixtape and the first single ‘Willy Wonka’ is killing up top radio right now.” Gudda tells VIBE of his Lil Wayne featured track. “I’ve already worked with Waka Flocka, Beanie Sigel and I just did a joint with Brisco. You’re going to see me on a lot collabs very soon. I’m hoping to have my album out at the beginning of next year.”

Although Weezy’s absence can certainly be felt amongst the Young Money crew, Gudda doesn’t feel any added pressure to keep the label afloat. With Drake and Nicki Minaj on the verge of releasing debut albums, the future only looks bright for the entire camp.

“We’ve got a solid line up, Nicki’s killing it, Drake’s killing it… I think we’re going to hold up strong. Wayne hears about everybody’s progress and all the moves we’re making. He’s real happy and excited about everything.”

Gudda’s next mixtape, Back 2 Guddaville, is set to be released later this month and will feature a collaboration with Waka Flocka Flame called “Lock My CEO Up” that the Third Ward native believes will be the biggest of his career. Gudda tells VIBE that he continues to stay in close contact with Wayne despite his incarceration.

“I talk to Wayne probably about two to three times a week. I let him know about everything that I’ve been recording and basically, he just tells me to keep going. Wayne is behind me 100 percent. He calls me with a lot of ideas and I execute them. I just go in the studio, knock it out.”

Drake & Trey Songz Contemplate Joint Album

Drake & Trey Songz Contemplate Joint Album

Before the money, the cars, and the clothes, Drake and Trey Songz were friends. Trey spoke to Rap-Up.com about his friendship with Drizzy and whether a joint album is in their future.

“That’s my homie, man. Making music with him is like two kids getting together to play basketball. It’s gon’ happen,” Trey said about his Canadian counterpart. “We have fun making music and our working relationship has furthered into a friendship.”

The “Successful” stars first met four years ago before Drake’s career took off. “He wanted me on a record entitled ‘Replacement Girl’ and once that record was done, I made consecutive trips to [Drake’s hometown] Toronto. I hit him up like, ‘Yo, come holla at me.’”

Trey did what he could to help a then-unknown Aubrey Drake Graham get noticed. “If you look back at the ‘Wonder Woman’ video, he’s in it. I brought him out on the tour I was on with Ne-Yo.”

Since then, both artists have made names for themselves and Trey couldn’t be happier for his friend’s success. “It’s great. I’m proud of him, man. I’m very proud of him.”

When asked whether their frequent collaborations could lead to a full album, Trey revealed that the idea has crossed their minds. “We’ll have to see. That’s crazy. We always talked about that when we first got on,” he shared. “We enjoy making music and we sit back and laugh about a lot of things—life. Look forward to seeing more music from us. I think we’ll make music together as long as we’re both making music.”

The two have recorded material for Drake’s debut album Thank Me Later, due early next year. “We’ve done some songs for his album, but we do songs all the time. There’s no telling if those songs will be on the album or not. I’m sure we’ll work together again before his album is out in stores, but we got some special stuff brewed up.”

In the meantime, Trey plans to release a video for “I Invented Sex,” his collaboration with Drake from his new album Ready.
