Drake, Nicki Minaj Put Each Other in the Hot Seat
The Young Money cohorts interviewed one another during a stop in New Orleans for the I Am Still Music tour. Drizzy was one of the night's special guests, and rather than answer questions from MTV's Sway Calloway, decided to put the microphone in front of the 'Pink Friday' creator himself.
The Toronto native, who is the most notable Young Money member not on the bill, got the ball rolling by asking Minaj what her favorite part of the tour has been thus far. "You want to know what, Drizzy?" Minaj responded. "I really love busting out from underneath the floor doing 'Roman's Revenge,' When I say, 'I'll kick that ho, punt!' When I say, 'B----, if you ain't sh---in' then get off the pot,' we really connect."
Proving that he may have a future on the other side of the mic, Drake touched on the topic of Minaj's forthcoming sophomore release, inquiring about what fans can expect from the project. Minaj explained that her hectic touring schedule, which includes a run with Britney Spears to begin in June, has been at the forefront of her mind at the moment.
"I have been keeping everything sort of stored inside of me," she said. "So I'm just in complete tour mode. Yeah, I've been getting a lot of requests to do some features, but if I can't give myself wholeheartedly, I always pass. I definitely never want to be just doing too many features that they start getting watered-down and I'm not giving my whole, true self."
Minaj then took the reins, questioning Drake about returning to the stage with the rest of the Young Money crew, after touring solo overseas.
"I truly enjoy these moments," he said. "Especially being in New Orleans. Actually, New Orleans was the first place that I ever really realized that my music was getting out there. I remember walking outside the W [hotel], and there was a guy out there selling mixtapes and he had 'So Far Gone.' I couldn't believe it. I wasn't even mad. You usually think you'll be mad when there's a bootlegger, but I was super excited."
The wig wearing diva also questioned Drake on the longer hair and scruffy beard he's been rocking as of late, which he explained was for a film roll.
Young Money's I Am Still Music Tour will end its U.S. run next week, before heading to Canada for three nights.
