The Young Money femcee drops a video clip on Instagram last night of herself and Lil Uzi Vert hanging out on set. Earlier this month, the pair drop the remix for “The Way Life Goes” and that track has since become Nicki’s 82nd Billboard Hot 100 entries. “This dat Nicki. This dat UZI. Who’s ready for the video?” she wrote. “This just became my 82nd Billboard Hot 100 Entry. Thank you guys so much. #TheWayLifeGoesREMIX #Motorsport was my 81st. Barbie working but u ain’t seen nuffin yet!”
Nicki Minaj was also high as sh** and she made sure that she pointed that out before anyone started judging her. “Congratulations, we high as sh*t,” she said. “We feelin’ really good right now. We on the set of the video. It’s just a pleasure to work with him.” Nicki added that Lil Uzi Vert reminds him of his label boss, the man who gave her her first big record deal, Lil Wayne. “He just reminds me so much of Tunechi (Lil Wayne) so everytime I see him, I’m always like, ‘aww, my little baby,’ because he just gives me the Lil Tunechi vibe. And so because of that, I love him. And I love this f***in’ song. Shout out to our fans and all of that. We’re about to give you a killer video.”
Some fans are already questioning Nicki Minaj’s sanity for comparing a young and new artist like Lil Uzi Vert to one of our generation’s most influential rappers and arguably one of the greatest rappers of all time, Lil Wayne. They do share some similarities in that Weezy often refers to himself as a rockstar and Uzi also sees himself in that light.
