Earlier this month, Minaj shared an insane story about how “FeFe” involvement came together.
#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.”
