Rise Of The Last King: Tyga Talks Album Collaborations With Nas & Nicki Minaj
On February 21, 22-year-old YMCMB rapper Tyga will be releasing his forthcoming LP, entitled Careless World: Rise Of The Last King. The disc has collaborations with Nas, Lil Wayne, Drake, Nicki Minaj, Big Sean, J. Cole and Robin Thicke, among others. In an interview with XXL mag, Tyga said that it took some time but he has finally procured a verse from Nas. The Queens Hip-Hop legend appears on a track called “Kings and Queens” that also features Wale.
“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.”
On the album, Tyga also has a collaboration with Nicki Minaj.
“The song for Nicki is called ‘Muthafucka 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.”
Tyga’s current single, “Rack City,” just reached No. 8 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week and his new single “Faded” Ft. Lil Wayne is buzzing on urban radio stations across the country.
