Tyga discusses Working with Nas and Nicki Minaj

Careless World: Rise of the Last King will have its fair share of Queens rappers for guest verses. Tyga built an incredible buzz, gaining him an album release, in 2011. Initially Careless World was intended for release in December, but was delayed. The delay has worked out well for Tyga, as his “Rack City” single has gained more popularity. Aside from the high-profile remix of the single, Tyga has more big-name collaborations for the album.

Nicki Minaj, Tyga’s Young Money label-mate, will be featured on the album. Tyga was also able to pull off an incredible collaboration with Nas for his new project. Many consider Nas to be among the best rappers of all-time. Because of his status in the game and his opinion on most newcomers, it is difficult for most newer artists to gain a verse from him. Tyga joins rare company in landing Nas for a collaboration on his sophomore album.

Nas will appear with Tyga, alongside Wale, on the track, “Kings and Queens.” Speaking on landing the collaboration with Nas, Tyga said he sent Nas the verse six months ago. Until recently, Tyga did not receive a reply from the Queens native. However, Nas ended up calling Tyga, telling him he loved his movement and was interested in working with him. Tyga said he sent Nas the “Kings and Queens” track after their phone conversation and Nas had the track completed and sent back to him the next day.

Tyga is excited by the song, saying Nas’ verse was the cherry on top. Right now, Tyga said he is thinking of the right video to go with the song, meaning it may become the next single off his album. While Tyga is confident fans will love “Kings and Queens,” he knows, without a doubt, fans will love “Muthafucka Up” with Nicki Minaj. Hinting that it may also be a single, Tyga said he has no idea what the radio version of the song will be called, possibly “Up.” Tyga compared the song to Lil Wayne’s 2008 hit, “A Milli,” saying it will be one of those classic Young Money songs. A video for the song is in the works a Tyga said the visual is crazy.
