Nicki Minaj, Drake, and Lil Wayne have been featured on each other’s popular tracks for years, and the Young Money stars currently have two hit singles with “Only” and “Truffle Butter.” The general public seems to love hearing the three rappers together on a record, and one Wu-Tang Clan member agrees. In an exclusive interview with AllHipHop.com, Masta Killa spoke about his appreciation for Nicki, Drizzy, and Weezy.
“Artists that are out now have their own style of doing things, but I love what they’re doing. Their world is a different style of hustling, but it’s dope,” says Killa. “I like Drake, Nicki Minaj, and Lil Wayne’s chemistry and how they do their thing.”
The man also known as Jamel Arief broke onto the music scene as a member of the Wu. The group’s debut album Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) is widely viewed as a Hip Hop classic. It has been over 20 years since that LP dropped. Killa reflects on how the game has changed since that time.
“At the time when I got to know Hip Hop, things were so rare that it actually had you stuck, even when we put our first album together. Making an album at that time was still kind of mystical to people,” adds Killa. “Now you can run into the average [rapper], and he has about ten albums in his backpack.”
