(AllHipHop News) Over eight years ago, Songz joined forces with a then lesser known rapper named Drake for records like “Replacement Girl,” “Successful” and “I Invented Sex.”
The Virginia-raised vocalist spoke about how he nearly signed Drake before the Toronto native went over to Young Money/Cash Money.
“Drake wouldn’t be Drake if we made that decision. Drake wanted to sign to me at a time I wasn’t even ‘Trey Songz’ yet,” explained Songz. “At that time, I felt like me and my label weren’t even in a good place whereas though they fully believed in my potential. I took Drake to many executives and a lot of people said no.”
The “Animal” singer admitted he and Drake had “personal issues” which played a part in the two performers not making more music together.
“Nicki said she gave me six plaques. But let’s keep it real, Nicki ain’t have sh-t before ‘Bottoms Up,'” stated Songz.
He added, “I love you, Nicki. I love you. You came at me wrong. You disrespected me, but I love you.”
The radio show conversation also included Trey talking about Minaj’s ex-boyfriend Meek Mill.
“Nobody ever uses me as a pawn, first of all,” Songz declared.
The Tremaine album creator continued, “I was appalled that people would think I would get together with Meek and do some kind of diss record against Nicki Minaj. I’m not even thinking about that.”
While a Minaj response track is not happening, Songz did reveal he and Meek have recorded at least five records together.
“I don’t think it was a good idea to take a picture and post it… But whatever, you wanna take a picture and post it” said Trey. “I think the caliber of intelligence that people have is lowered by the need and the want for drama. I think people look past logic and reasoning to see, ‘Oh, there’s bullsh-t.’ We were just in the studio.”
