Over the weekend when the tracklisting for Nicki Minaj’s sophomore album, Pink Friday: Roman’s Reloaded, was released many people were wondering why Nas would jump on a song with the Young Money femcee. Now Nas speaks on the reason why he will be featured on Minaj’s “Champion.”

Nas recently chopped it up with MTV and spoke on collaborating with Nicki Minaj:

“Nicki hit us up, I got love, so it was nothin’ — I did the record. It’s hip-hop music; music is music. If I feel it, I can get on it. I heard the track, I felt it, I loved it.”
