Rake It Up by Yo Gotti (featuring Mike WiLL Made It & Nicki Minaj )

Album: Gotti Made-ItReleased: 2017
  • This is the lead single from Yo Gotti and Mike WiLL Made-It's collaborative mixtape Gotti Made-It. Mike WiLL Made-It produced the track with in-house producer 30 Roc, whose other credits include T-Wayne's "Nasty Freestyle" and Rae Sremmurd's "Real Chill."
  • The song features a verse by Nicki Minaj. It's not the first time that Gotti has paired up with the Young Money artist. In 2009, the two worked together on Gotti's "5 Star Chick" remix, they both jumped on Gucci Mane's "Coca Coca" the following year and in 2016 the Queens MC contributed to the Memphis rapper's 2016 "Down in The DM remix."

    Gotti spoke of his admiration for Minaj.

    "Whether it's something small like the mix and master, she's involved, and I have a lot of respect for her because of that … A lot of artists don't give a f--k," he told Billboard magazine. "They'll do their verse and not give a f--k how the artwork is. Many things that are little to some people, like the tedious things, she be on her s--t and that's how I am. I be on my s--t so from one boss to another, I really respect her business."
  • During the track both Yo Gotti and Nicki Minaj talk about how to handle rap feuds. The day before the song dropped, the Queens MC tweeted:

    "I love that Gotti gave you boys the dos & dont's on the [first] verse of this song. We don't beef on social sites, we just hit our target."
  • The video for the strip-club anthem is a literal take on its lyrics as we see Nicki Minaj joined by a line up of bodacious girls using garden rakes to rake up bills.

    The clip also features a car race between Nicki Minaj and social media vixen Blac Chyna, which is a reference to the first line of the Queens MC's verse.

    Brought out the pink Lamborghini just to race with Chyna.

    After Blac Chyna posted a picture of her brand new Ferrari on Instagram (a birthday present), Minaj challenged her to a race, threatening to "pull out the HOT PINK Lamborghini."
