I’m so glad that my lady’s back making music again and whatnot, and getting back out there.”
The rapper continued, “It’s just incredible. Especially for both of us — it is a good year for both of us to be more active and be out there. But the Super Bowl is huge, and her being the creative she is, she going to bring it, man. I’m excited. I’m more excited than everybody else, honestly.”
