According to Tory Lanez Nicki told him to remove her verse from his “Shooters” single, because he allegedly gave her criticism through a text message. That’s sad, because Nicki totally slays this song. Listen to it below:
The Nigerian rapper ‘Wizkid’ teased about a collaboration with Nicki. There is no release date yet. Check out what konbini.com wrote about it:
While most Nigerian artists tend to team up with C-listers (at best) when it comes to international collaborations, Wizkid has been fortunate enough to consistently work with the best of the best — like Drake, Future and Chris Brown, just to name a few.
Now, the afropop superstar has revealed that he has an upcoming collaboration with the undisputed queen of hip-hop, Nicki Minaj.
About eight months ago, Wizkid and Nicki Minaj took to Instagram to share a picture of both of them together. While fans immediately assumed that meant we were getting a collaboration, nothing had been confirmed — until now, that is.
Speaking with The Beat FM’s Gbemi Olateru-Olagbegi about upcoming collabs, Wizkid said:
“I’ve got a couple big ones coming up. I’ve got one with Nicki [Minaj] coming soon. “
Although we are not sure if what we are getting is a Nicki Minaj song with a catchy Wizkid chorus or a Wizkid song with a killer Nicki Minaj verse, we can be sure that what we do get will be a bop either way. Let’s just hope it doesn’t take forever before we get to hear it!
Thug teased the upcoming collaboration on Instagram Live.
Young Thug is preparing to release new music with Nicki Minaj, according to a statement made on Instagram Live Saturday. “I’ll log back on a little later. When I log on I’ll be previewing my next single featuring Nicki,” he said. As far as we know, the promise was not kept, but the announcement itself is big news for both Thug and Nicki fans.

Last September, Nicki spoke of a collaboration with Young Thug which she said would appear on her fourth studio album. “[I was] so blown away,” she said of working with Thug. “I can’t wait for people to hear that collaboration.” Thug and Nicki have previously collaborated on the “Danny Glover” remix, Juicy J’s “Low,” and Rae Sremmurd’s “Throw Sum Mo.”
It is unclear if the song Nicki referred to back then is the same collaboration Thug is now teasing. From Thug’s description, it sounds like he will be the lead artist on the track with Nicki appearing as a feature. If that’s the case, the song has either been reworked, dropped from Nicki’s album, or is another collaboration entirely. There is also the possibility that this is Nicki’s single which Thug appears on. Either way, the news should excite fans of Nicki, who has been silent both musically and on social media for the majority of 2018 thus far. Thug fans may also be surprised, as the rapper said in February that he would not be releasing any new music this year to honor his deaf brother.
Nicki has not shared any news of upcoming music. Her long-awaited follow-up to 2014’s The Pinkprint is expected to see release in 2018.

The Singer Tory Lanez (“Luv”) talked about Nicki on ‘The Breakfast Club’. Check out the article ebony.com has published about it:
Singer Tory Lanez said that Nicki Minaj told him to take her verse off of “Shooters” after the singer texted her what he views as constructive criticism about her verse on the track.
Lanez made his remarks during an interview with “The Breakfast Club” on Monday.
“She was originally on ‘Shooters’ and she did an incredible verse. I was asking her about the verse, about changing something around because of where you placed the hook at…through the text it kinda came off like I was trying to critique her verse…and she really wasn’t rocking with it and she was like take my verse off the song. ”
