Tyga Talks His “Hit ‘Em Up” Track With 2Pac, Wanted Nicki Minaj On The Song At First

March 31, 2013 by Danny M


While on set of his Molly” video shoot in Los Angeles earlier this month, Tyga spoke to MTV about his upcoming “Hit ‘Em Up” song featuring 2Pac and Jadakiss that will appear on Hotel California.

T-Raww explains that the track is not a remake of 2Pac‘s classic and instead it will include unreleased Pac vocals. He also says that he wanted his Young Money label-mate Nicki Minaj on the record at first, but that never worked out.

“A lot of people think it’s a remake of ‘Hit ‘Em Up,’ his song — which it’s not a remake, it’s original. When people hear it they’re gonna think it’s real clever and they’re gonna really respect it.”

“I wanted Nicki to be on the song at first and then we never did it, so then I went back to the song later. When you’re talking about ‘Hit ‘Em Up’ you ain’t really dissing nobody, but you lettin’ it be known that you don’t rock with certain people. I sent it to Jadakiss and after that I was done with the song and then I had came across some ‘Pac vocals from a friend. I was like, ‘Man this would be dope,’ but I didn’t really know how to use it properly.”

      Haters are pathetic. A disgrace to humanity. If you’re here and you are not a Tyga fa, then you are a pathetic disgrace to humanity. It’s common sense. Not a fan, ignore them. You people do the opposite. Not a fan, pay attention.

    Repetetive and simple as fuck

  8. Fucking ymcmb Says:

    All Young money cite Will be ddosed down cuzz you are making remix of 2pac song mothafucker!!


  9. IM SURE OF IT Says:

    Isn’t Afeni Shakur going to sue Tyga? Pretty sure she will. Cause you can’t get a hold of unreleased Tupac vocals that easily. Cause only Afeni Shakur has unreleased vocals and the copyrights/licenses to them. I’m also pretty sure as Tupac’s mother and in music business, she wouldn’t let someone steal her son’s vocals and get away with it. Plus there probably bootleg vocals with low quality.
