Kanye West Taps Nicki Minaj for ‘Good Ass Job’
A host of noted artists and producers have revealed guest spots on Kanye West's upcoming album 'Good Ass Job,' but it looks like one collaboration in particular might have been on the hush-hush. According to a report, West has hooked up with Young Money's First Lady Nicki Minaj for a track on his highly anticipated album.
In an interview with Rap-Up, BET's Executive Vice President of Entertainment and Music Programming Stephen Hill revealed he's heard four tracks from Kanye's new project and also divulged another bit of info that hadn't gone public just yet. "[Kanye]'s got a track with Nicki Minaj that's so dope. You won't believe it when you hear it," he told Rap-Up.
Hill also says that the direction that Kanye is taking with his new project is more a reflection of his first three efforts: 'College Dropout,' 'Late Registration,' and 'Graduation.' "It's less like '808s & Heartbreak' and more like 'Graduation.' He comes back unapologetic and his performance [at the BET Awards] was stellar, absolutely stellar."
On Sunday, Kanye performed his new single 'Power' at the BET Awards in his first appearance at an awards show since his mishap with county star Taylor Swift at the 2009 MTV Video Awards.
