Nas Says His Track With Nicki Minaj Is The “Perfect Record”
By Danielle Harling
In a recent interview with XXL magazine, Queens rapper Nas spoke on his appearance on Nicki Minaj’s Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded and expressed his appreciation for Minaj as an artist.
“I mean it was crazy cause Nicki is out there doing it,” Nas explained to XXL magazine. “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.”
