On February 21st, “God’s Son” will meet “The Last King,” as Nas will appear on Tyga‘s debut album, Careless World: Rise of the Last King. In a recent interview with XXL, Tyga discussed what it was like working with one of Hip-Hop’s greatest of all time on the song “Kings & Queens.”

“Yeah man, I sent Nas a song like six months ago and I never heard back from him but out of the blue, he called me like, ‘Yo, you doing your thing. I want to be a part of what you doing, I like everything you doing. Keep working hard,” Tyga tells XXL. “I sent him the ‘Kings and Queens’ that night and he did it the next day. I was like, that Shyte is crazy. Nas always talks that Shyte. The song, man, [his bars] added the cherry on top. It’s a real classic song. People are gonna like it. I wanna think of a dope video. The storyline of the song, the whole King and Queens [theme], it’s motivational.”

While the “Rack City” MC is clearly looking forward to the release of “Kings & Queens,” he is also excited about his collaborative effort with fellow YMCMB apper, Nicki Minaj. The two MC’s teamed up on Nicki’s sophomore album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, on a song called “MuthaFawka Up.” Tyga spoke with great enthusiasm about the record, too.

“That one is one of them going in type songs,” said Tyga. “Like how Wayne had ‘A Milli.’ One of those Young Money records that people love. We got a crazy visual for that one, too. I don’t wanna give it away. I’ve been doing a lot of features for everyone.”

Careless World: Rise of the Last King, will be available February 21st.
