Nicki Minaj and Tyga ‘Get Low’ with Waka Flocka Flame [Behind the Scenes]

Tyga and Nicki Minaj

Waka Flocka Flame joins forces with Young Money in the Benny Boom-directed video for “Get Low,” the new single off his sophomore album Triple F Life: Friends, Fans & Family. MTV News caught up with the Brick Squad rapper and his co-stars Nicki Minaj and Tyga on set in Atlanta last week.

“The concept for the video was a red, white, and black color scheme, and a lot of art,” explained Waka, who’s readying his new mixtape Salute Me or Shoot Me Vol. 4. “I wanted to bring hip-hop videos back—choreographing and girls dancing in it. There’s too [many] naked women dancing in videos scenes to me. I feel like I wanna put the art back into it. I feel like it’s my job to put the art and the fun back into the music.”

Tyga jumped on the song as soon as he heard it. “When he sent me the verse, I was like, ‘This is different,’ so automatically, I wanted to do it ’cause I like doing stuff that’s different,” said the Young Money MC. “Coming from Waka, people are used to hearing head-bussing, more crunk shit, so when he sent me this, I was like, ‘This is different, so I gotta do it.’ I did my verse like the next day and sent it back.”

Nicki didn’t hesitate to lend a hand. “Waka Flocka, he’s my brother,” said the blonde raptress. “People know that I go way back with him, and whatever he needs me to do, it gets done. He called me, he sent me a song, I said, ‘It’s nothing.’ I was finishing up my album, and I said, ‘You know I got you, it’s nothing.’”

    @DRAGHOES, Kim’s impact > Nicki’s “impact. People didn’t approve of Kim when her first 2 albums dropped because ppl who only listened to her singles protested against her saying she was too “raunchy.” She had to go through what she went through so your fav can succeed following Kim’s blueprint. All of Kim’s album are better than Nicki’s. BY FAR. And it doesn’t take a “stan” to know this.

    @CAdy, You can’t really compare the albums because the sound is totally different nicki went for a crossover kim went for approval she was sex nothing wrong with that but they are totally different musically (album) wise I know people who say : Kim and old nicki are = and that’s an opinion some would disagree but in the same sentence without nicki there would be no Iggy and Azealia

    @Queens, huh?? where did u get Iggy and Azealia come from? they are nothing like Nicki…i wouldn’t say it’s b/c of nicki that they’re here…nicki ain’t pavin the way for no one but herself really…

    And u have gotta be deaf dumb to not think Nicki hasn’t completely taken Kim’s style and ran with it…regardless of how different their albums were…and Nicki’s 1st album wasn’t crossover, it was the 2nd one (the one that’s flopping)…

    @SdotB, Gotta disagree. Nicki inspired a whole generation of females to pick up a mic and get at her or try and rock with her or outdo her.

    The same amount of fans she annoyed that started looking for a new female to get rid of Nicki is the same amount of her fans that are now supporting other females. Nicki piqued people’s curiosity in the genre.

    Nobody paid female rap that much attention. Pre Nicki most females weren’t garnering huge buzz. When Wayne co-signed he made her trendy. When she was repping Gucci’s camp & Young Money at the same time she made it trendy for crews to have a female rapper.

    After Remy solo album didn’t sell that well labels weren’t really gambling with female rappers like talking about.

    Now there’s Nicki, LoLa Monroe, Azealia Banks. Iggy Azalea, Angel Haze, Brianna Perry.

    Look at Diamond from Crime Mob. She was buzzing and couldn’t flip that buzz into a notable career.

    @Dro, “she made it trendy to for crews to have a female rapper”…

    you see this is this type of stuff Nicki stans are blinded by…

    how did she make it trendy?? This has ALWAYS been a trend…hello, Lil’ Kim with the Mafia, Foxy Brown with The Firm, Lauren Hill with the Fugees, Remy Ma with Terror Squad, and the list goes on…

    Nicki ain’t doing ANYTHING NEW…it’s ALL been done before…she’s just the NEW GENERATION…that’s it!! And YES, she STOLE Kim’s style, lyrics, image, and everything…that’s what got her popular…and once she established herself…that’s when she took OTHER musical routes…if Nicki initially came out with her Pop music, and dropped PF:RR as her first album…she wouldn’t be nearly as successful as she is…

    Stop discrediting ALL OF THE previous, AND VERY SUCCESSFUL female rappers that came before her! Nicki didn’t put anyone on the map, she’s thrives off of having “1 main chick in the game”…

    So to correct you on your comment “without nicki there would be no Iggy and Azealia”…it’s actually, “without Kim, Foxy, Lauren, Missy, Remy, and all other vets…there would be no Nicki, Iggy, Azaliea, Diamond, Lola, Kreashawn, and all current rookies in the game right now!”

    @CAdy, Kim paved the way but now she needs to move out the way and let Nicki do her thing. And Nicki ain’t following Kim’s blueprint cus Kim ain’t never been where Nicki is going.

    @CAdy, At the end of the day yes they belong to two different eras. But I hate when stans knock someones receipts. I am not a stan for either Nicki or Kim, however album sales do speak truth. You can’t knock the fact that the album sell, clearly insinuating that the music is positively affecting someone that may not be you. (sidenote: I cannot verify that the numbers are correct) However, if the numbers are you can say you don’t have an appreciation of the music but at the end of the day I applaud ANY artist whether I like their music or not for selling 4 million records. ANOTHER sidenote: If you don’t like the artist WHY THE HELL do you click the link to bash, you have to much time on your hands. This goes to all Nicki Minaj Stans that attack Lil Kim articles, AND Lil’ Kim fans that attack Nicki Minaj articles. I’m just saying.

    @CAdy, sorry, Nicki DID NOT follow Kim’s blueprint if so she would have BEEN wahsed by now. Nicki is in her own lane & her versatility is something we have NOT seen. Theatrical, hardcore, & pop.. Nicki doesn’t just do “ganster porn raps” .. Now spill dat

    @DRAGHOES, Ummm, you’re spreading FALSE info. Kim has sold 10 MILLION worldwide with 4 albums, Sicki has sold 3 million off of two. Not sure where you’re getting your info but stop trying to spread false info. Flaming drag queen.

    @DRAGHOES, You’re an IDIOT! Spreading false stats to make Nicki look better. Firstly PF is around 3 mill, while PFRR is around a mill, so that’s 4 mill WW.

    Kim’s USA sales ALONE sold more than 4.5 mill. Dumbass

    “I wanted to bring hip-hop videos back—choreographing and girls dancing in it. There’s too [many] naked women dancing in videos scenes to me.” — That comment alone just meant that people still have a little dignity for themselves and Hip-hop …. That comment alone made me have some type of respect for Waka

    The comment Waka made about he didn’t want a whole bunch of naked girls in the video makes me actually want to watch the video. Most times I only watch the first 15 seconds of a video and switch it off cause of the same old naked girls dancing in a video.

    Y’all need to stop comparing Nicki to EVERYBODY.
    She slaying and winning and working her ass off, let her be please cause the kid ain’t goin anywhere.
    She’ll be on ya screen and even tho you don’t wanna admit it you like it.
    But as she said before herself, the comparing is – a common – way to interprete her music. Your own opinion of course, but bit simple minded. Just sayin
