Even though “Massive Attack” was nominated for a VMA with Nicki Minaj, the song isn’t going to make her album. He says you should live and die with your decisions:
“But at the end of the day, that’s what I do, I love great people. Me, I don’t do this sh*t for the fame. I don’t do it for ‘oh he hot now, I’m gonna f*ck with him’ or ‘she hot now, I’m gonna go f*ck with her.’ I don’t do that. I love the music, I do the sh*t for what’s hot, I wanna make the fans happy. I don’t stand beside a person because they’re blazing. I’m muthaf*ckin blazin, I stay blazing.”
The Pen continues to give praise to Usher for going through everything he went through, having heart, and still standing to have what it takes to be a superstar.
