The internet’s been ablaze since Nicki Minaj and Lil Herb’s “Chi-Raq” hit the e-streets a couple of nights ago and today, Complex caught up with G Herbo to get a few burning questions answered. During their conversation, Herb talks about what it was like to be in the studio with Nicki, how the collaboration came about and speaks on those who think that Nicki giving the song it’s title was a bad idea.

Peep an excerpt below.

How long did it take to do your verse?

We was actually in the studio together the whole day. But to record it probably took a few hours. To finish it, write it, make sure it was all good. Have it perfect? Maybe three hours, four hours tops.

There were people who thought it was a bad idea for Nicki—since she’s not from Chicago—to call a song Chiraq. What do you think about that?

I don’t even really pay attention to it. I don’t think it was a bad idea or a bad anything. I mean, she reached out to me, to put me on the song. She’s rapping about shit that’s going on in Chicago. That’s what I rap about. That’s what I’m known for. That’s what she reached out to me for. So why would we rap about flowers and heart shapes?

Check out the full interview here.
