Polo’s girlfriend recently revealed how he was able to score a feature from the Queen.
In her words: I’m not saying this to brag or for cool points. But when I heard for the love of New York Polo asked me who should he put on there and I immediately said ‘nicki’ he gave me that look like ‘naw I don’t think she’ll do it’ I kept saying yes she will! He asked everybody for days and my answer stayed at yes she will.
A couple of weeks later, Polo G got word that Nicki did end up recording the verse, and the rest is history.
