In an exclusive interview with MTV UK during a break in performances across the pond, the Pittsburgh rhyme slinger has made it clear that he’s a fan of Young Money starlet Nicki Minaj, saying he “absolutely” hopes to work alongside the diva on a collaborative effort in the near feature. The “Black and Yellow” star also heaped high amounts of praise upon the Queens rapper.
“She’s awesome. She’s a hard worker, she makes really good music and she’s really diverse which is important – not only in hip-hop but just in music in general,” gushed Wiz. He continued with, “You gotta be able to switch it up and you gotta be able to still be you and that’s what she’s able to do. I really respect that about her.” When asked by MTV UK what type of tunes would the pair tackle, Wiz gave an, ahem, hazy answer but stayed true to his typically cool image.
“Whatever we feel like that day. I like to be open when it comes to music,” said the Rolling Papers MC. “When I get in the studio, I don’t really have anything in mind, I just hear stuff and then we make it happen from there,” Wiz added.
The jet-setting Wiz will wrap up his European tour with a pair of dates in Paris before wrapping up in Manchester and Berlin. He then will head back across the Atlantic to continue his American expedition before heading back to Europe in August.
