Nikki Jean recently spoke with AllHipHop about a variety of things. Here is what she said about her working relationship with Lupe for Tetsuo & Youth:
AHH: You’re on several tracks on Lupe’s upcoming album. Did the two of you go into the process planning to do so many tracks together or were [the ones on Tetsuo & Youth] just the particular songs that came out of the sessions?
NJ: We’re both out here in L.A. quite a bit. Lupe recorded a lot of the album here. Every once in a while I would get a text that said, “Hey can you come to the studio?” It would always be like “Come to the studio now.” [laughs]
I think it just worked out that way. He made a number of amazing tracks. One of my favorite songs is not even going to be on the album. I’m not on it, but I’m sure people will get to hear it in the future. He made so many songs for the album, and it’s just kind of the luck of the draw so many of the songs I’m part of made the album. I’m really happy to be part of it.
