Rick Ross is hip-hop’s self-proclaimed Bawse, but despite giving it up to Rozay on his new single, Nicki Minaj answers to another. While on the set of Birdman’s “Y.U. Mad” video, the Female Weezy told MTV News that she originally wrote Ross’ “You the Boss” for Young Money CEO Lil Wayne.
“You know what’s interesting about that song,” Minaj said while in character as her alter ego, the Female Weezy, “Nicki originally did that song for Wayne two and a half years ago.”
The slow-rolling track, which is the first single off of Ross’ upcoming God Forgives, I Don’t, finds Minaj on the hook toasting the larger-than-life Rozay. “I’ll do anything you say, anything, ’cause you the boss,” Nicki sings softly.
Wayne never ended up using the track, but it seemed all too perfect for Ricky. “It was just lingering, and then she gave it to Rick Ross,” Lady Wayne said. “I think it’s hot.”
On October 14, Ross gave the rap world quite a scare after he suffered two separate medical emergencies on his way to a Memphis, Tennessee, concert. Ross is currently on the road to recovery, but while on set with Birdman and Wayne, Minaj wished her collaborator and friend well.
“We actually been talking about him and praying for him on the trailer because he’s such a crucial part of hip-hop right now and we’re just hoping he’s healthy,” Minaj told MTV News. “That’s all we can do is pray and hope that he gets some rest and comes back stronger.”
