New York rapper Nicki Minaj is spilling her guts on what it took to put together her smash “FeFe” anthem. Onika has stepped forward to speak on how the banger formed.
Nicki hopped on Instagram Monday (August 6) to dish on how a quick Tekashi 6ix9ine convo turned into a certified Billboard Hot 100 debut.
#3 on BBHOT100 – 🙌🏽 @6ix9ine sent me this song & we got on the phone to discuss. 5 mins after the call I sent him this voice note 😅True story. He sent me a voice note back making fun of my voice. I was literally in bed half sleep! Smh 🙈 i was inspired tho cuz it reminded me of a song I did wit GUCCI years ago. Got dat supa soaka, p$$y pop like cola coka, plus it’s tighta than a choka, got him smilin like da joka! Gucci made me write that verse in 15 mins cuz he said he only had money for 2 hours of studio time & we both had to write and record😩
Last month, Tekashi announced his and Nicki’s “FeFe” video had already received over 70 million views after just 7 days.
Recently, Tek took a minute to acknowledge how mainstream he’s become over the past few months.
“Yo I’m really the hottest artist in the f*cking America right now. Three days. 36 million views. Number one. Apple. Number one. Everywhere. Everywhere we number one. It’s f*cking Treyway. At this time I’m so happy. Shout-out to Nicki. Shout-out to Murda. I’m so happy I did this, this time, because I gave ’em so much time – ‘Gummo,’ by myself. ‘Kooda,’ by myself. ‘Billy,’ by myself. ‘Gotti,’ by myself. Straight Billboard hits by myself. ‘Tati,’ by myself. Now when I do a feature nobody can say, ‘Yo, it’s because of this person, because of that person,’ n*gga you seen me do it by myself for months.”
