In the video above, Tyga, Young Jeezy and T.I. speak to MTV on set of the “Rack City (Remix)” video shoot in Atlanta about appearing on the record.

“I heard the record, loved it, seen it go crazy in the club. I couldn’t visualize it without a Young verse on there, so I just went ahead,” Jeezy told MTV News from the video set. “The homey hit me up for the video, and we in the A-Town, we in the city, we here, turnt up.”

Usually, pulling features from such big names is quite the chore, especially for newer artists like Tyga. But already, the “Rack City” remix features some pretty notable MCs, with the Snowman and Tip just the latest to jump onboard. “I didn’t think the song would be bigger than outside of L.A., because that’s like an L.A. sound,” Tyga said, “So to have two of the legends that I’m big fans of on the record is crazy.”

When talking about his decision to jump on the record, T.I. was as nonchalant as could be. “For me, I got reached out to. They told me to add my two cents in, so I did just that,” Tip said. “When they told me the video was coming, I picked out an outfit.”

In the video above, Drake talks to Mando Fresko about the women who got “DRAKE” tattooed on her forehead (you can see a pic in the video). Drizzy says he wants to speak to the lady who got the tattoo done and understand why she did it, but he also calls the tattoo artist an asshole and says he would fuck him up if he ever came across him.

“The guy who tatted it is a fucking asshole, for real. I don’t fuck with that guy. Fuck you to that tat artist cause you’re an asshole for real, and you should lose your job. You should never do tattoos again. I don’t fuck with you and if I ever see you, I’mma fuck you up.”

Drake And Nicki Minaj Defend Their Written Rhymes

Nicki Minaj isn’t worried about the people who criticized her for not spitting off the dome during the BET Hip-Hop Awards cyphers.

“How many people on that cypher do you think spit off the top of their head?” Minaj fumed to Richmond, Virginia, radio host TT Torrez last week. “I don’t write off the top of my head. I can’t come up with those punch lines and metaphors off the top of my head. Everybody besides KRS-One, who else can you name that spit off the top of their head? They will tear apart a female, like, ‘She did a good verse, but she wrote it.’ … The only thing that matters is that I wrote on a paper and memorized it. Wayne never wrote my sh–. No one ever wrote my stuff.”

Nicki’s Young Money family member Drake went through some of the same problems earlier this year. When he was on Funkmaster Flex’s Hot 97 show, Drake spit his rhymes while reading them from his BlackBerry. Some bloggers and fans wrote negative responses, and comedian Affion Crockett even posted a video spoof online.

“I’ll never forget the night, man, when I went up to Hot 97, and it wasn’t scheduled,” Drake explained. “It wasn’t like, you know, ‘Drake’s coming up here Tuesday.’ It was literally like, ‘Funk Flex wants to meet you,’ and bam, like, two seconds later, it was like, ‘Let’s go on the radio and just kill New York.’ I’ll never forget how nervous I was. It was such a rookie hip-hop moment — and, obviously, the controversy of me pulling out my phone and rapping off my phone because I just wasn’t prepared. A lot of people don’t know the difference between freestyle or off the top and coming to a radio show knowing you got to go there, so you got verses cued up in your head, whether they be off your upcoming album or verses just that you have laying around. A lot of artists get that preparation time.”

Drake said the moment was an important steppingstone.

“That moment, just as far as hip-hop, as far as MCing goes, that moment was one of those … it was just, ‘Whoa! I’m really here and I got to get better. I got get to be better than this. I can never be caught off guard again,’ ” Drake said. “That was probably one of the most interesting moments of my life this year. I’m a writer, man. I appreciate the elements of hip-hop. I appreciate a guy like Common who goes city to city and just spits at the crowd for 10 minutes about everything he sees. I admire talent like that, because that’s just not my creative process. So, you know, as far as moments this year go, though, I’ve had amazing stories. I don’t want to tell them all in interviews, because then Thank Me Later will just be empty, so I think I’m going to tell them in this album as vivid as I possibly can.”
