On Friday, the rap queen released her 2009 mixtape Beam Me Up Scotty to streaming services for the first time featuring three new tracks including “Seeing Green” with Drake and Lil Wayne.
In a Q&A with fans, Nicki said that her Young Money brothers “washed” her on the track, and she’s not afraid to admit it.
Way too many. All I know is that they washed me on #SeeingGreen I’m a woman enough to admit when I’ve been washed on a track by the Greats and it’s ok #Barbz I’ve washed them b4. We’ll live through this one. I was still a lil rusty I washed them in my head on #Fractionshttps://t.co/ZdPIqjOJn3
“All I know is that they washed me on #SeeingGreen,” tweeted Nicki. “I’m a woman enough to admit when I’ve been washed on a track by the Greats.”
However, Nicki feels that she has outshined Drizzy and Weezy on their past collaborations. “And it’s ok #Barbz I’ve washed them b4. We’ll live through this one,” she said, adding, “I was still a lil rusty I washed them in my head on #Fractions.”
She also revealed that she recorded around seven different versions of “Seeing Green” before settling on her verse. “Honestly I kept coming back to it for like a week. I have like 7 diff versions of my verse on that song,” she told fans.
Honestly I kept coming back to it for like a week. I have like 7 diff versions of my verse on that song. and no I’m not gonna upload them. and I took out a very funny line from #Fractions a cpl days b4 we released. It was such a fkng Ki https://t.co/KsgQ2j3Xki
During her Instagram Live on Thursday night, Nicki said that it was Drake who helped her overcome her writer’s block after she gave birth. “He single handedly got me out of my writer’s block, and I’m never gonna forget it and I’m gonna shout it to the fu**ing world from the mountain tops,” said Nicki. “He’s a fu**in’ genius as a musical artist but also as a human.”
Fresh off the release of The Off-Season, the Dreamville champ paid a visit to “The ETCs” podcast with Kevin Durant and Eddie Gonzalez, where he reflected on his career and relationship with fellow rappers Drake and Kendrick Lamar, which has evolved over time. While they came up together, he has learned to value friendship over competitiveness.
“These are the guys that push you, and you gotta push them,” said Cole. “I was so competitive early on that, like, even though we were all friends, I’ve never been a reach out, I’ve never been that person, especially when it’s competition involved. It’s almost like working out together.”
When he was younger, he had a more competitive mentality, which has changed with age. “I guess in the NBA in the past that was unheard of. Like, ‘Why would I work out with this ni**a? I’m trying to destroy this ni**a.’ That was kind of my mentality early on,” he said. “But as I’ve gotten older, I realize that no one is truly my peer or can relate to what I’m going through in life more than these people right here–just in terms of whatever pressures there might be… Nobody can really relate to that like these dudes, and I really genuinely f**k with these dudes.”
He was able to stop viewing them as competition and more as friends. “I’ve been absolutely trying to make an effort as time goes on, to strip the competition from me,” he said. “I’m more interested in the relationship ’cause I also see a time when I’m not doing this. That seems very realistic to me.”
Added Cole, “I’m more interested in the genuine relationship. Before I was interested in the competition. Before I was just interested in putting pressure or responding to pressure… It’s just less competition in my mind ’cause ni**as is old, bro.”
However, he always had respect for his peers. “It was always a respect thing. Now it’s just more of a wisdom thing where it’s like, ‘Yo, you can never have it all.’”
“Michael Jordan will never be universally hailed as the greatest player of all time–and that’s insane. And LeBron James will never be universally hailed as the greatest player of all time–and that’s insane. You’ll never have it, so it comes with age to realize that like, ‘Yo, what are you even worried about?’ ‘Cause you’re just setting yourself up for suffering.”
Elsewhere in the podcast, Cole opened up about fulfilling his professional basketball dreams. On Sunday, the Fayetteville rapper made his debut playing for the Rwanda Patriots BBC in the inaugural season of the Basketball Africa League.
