Following the release of his sophomore album Memories Don’t Die, Tory Lanez has been on a campaign run and recently sat down with HotNewHipHop where he opened up about the songs on the project and even gave us the backstory on his record, “Shooters.” During the sit-down, the Toronto native admitted that Nicki Minaj was supposed to be on the buzzing single, but asked to be removed following a text consisting of some harsh criticism that Fargo sent to the Jamaica, Queens rapper.
“She was on the record first and I was telling her something about the verse. I wasn’t saying it was bad or anything, her verse was incredible and I’m also like a super-Nicki fan. But I was telling her something and it may have came off.. Cause I was texting her and it may have came off in a different way. She probably read it differently than I said it… I think it maybe kinda came off a little bit arrogant or I kinda said something I shouldn’t have said about her verse and she was like “well n*gga, it’s just not that serious, take my verse off the thing.” We was like, “aight.” I love Nicki Minaj when it comes down to the music and the whole thing but I’m not like a reacher. Once a n*gga says it’s quiet, it’s quiet. I’m fine with that. I’m a great musician… Maybe in the future when the time is right, we’ll do something that’s right that we both feel comfortable with.”
