Nas credits his daughter for his Tyga collaboration and says Nicki Minaj is the only female rapper “doing it.”
“I mean it was crazy cause Nicki is out there doing it,” Nas explained to XXLMag. “She’s like the only female doing it. You got some new ones out here doing it—Azealia Banks, Iggy Azalea—you got them. But since we don’t hear much from Eve, Kim and Foxy these days, nobody can’t front, Nicki is representing. To be on her album, that shit was crazy.”
The rapper also went on to refer to his Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded track with Nicki Minaj, Drake and Young Jeezy as being the “perfect record.”
On top of his work with Nicki Minaj, Nas also worked with Young Money artist Tyga for his Careless World: Rise Of The Last King track “King Queens.”
And when it came to Nas’ appearance on Careless World: Rise Of The Last King he says that his daughter played a large role in that decision thanks to her approval of the Young Money rapper.
“Yeah man, you know…the youngin’ reached out,” said Nas. “He’s out there doing his thing. I asked my daughter, that’s how that works. I probably don’t listen to everybody she listen to, but I have to show her I’m not hating. The ‘Rack City’ shit was a monster. It is a monster. Tyga, he do what he do. That was fun.”
