Murda Beatz Reveals Drake Nice For What Single Came About From Playing NBA 2K

Murda Beatz was a guest on episode 33 of Elliott Wilson and Brian “B.Dot” Miller’s Rap Radar Podcast.

During their conversation, the producer revealed how Drake‘s “Nice For What” single that samples Lauryn Hill came about:

“I feel like music needed a record like [“Nice For What”]. We were chilling at Drake’s house playing [NBA 2K] and we came up with the idea to sample a female artist. So I asked my manager: ‘Yo, what do you think?’ He’s like: ‘Ex-Factor.’ And Drake’s like: ‘Oh, what part?’ And we picked the part, chopped it up, I made the beat while he was playing 2K. [Drake’s] like: ‘This shit fire.’ He sat there, wrote the shit in front of me, cut the shit in front of me. We got the shit done — beat and song, probably in like an hour and a half.”

Nicki Minaj Commends Sickamore For Admitting He Made Mistakes While Managing Her

Nicki Minaj has gone on social media to praise her former manager Sickamore, who is now the Vice President of A&R and Creative Director at Epic Records, for admitting in a recent interview that he made some mistakes during the early stages of Nicki‘s career.

“It takes heart to admit when your wrong. You can always work with me Sickamore. Only good memories. @Sickamore thank you”

This all came after Sickamore did an interview with RapRadar and mentioned that Minaj is one of the smartest business people he has ever met, he thought he was ready to manage her but he wasn’t, he learned a lot from their time together, and reaching out to her to ask if she will do a verse on YG’s My Nigga” remix.

Sickamore also said the Young Money Barbie always knew that she would be as big as what she is today and she didn’t get this big by accident, as well as told a story of what happened between them back in the early days when Nicki had a cover shoot with Vibe magazine.
