'Got Ur #' Web Extra: LunchMoney Lewis Talks Nicki Minaj 'Pinkprint' Collab

Plus, Lewis reflects on performing with The Roots on 'The Tonight Show'

Ever since he was a kid, LunchMoney Lewis has been surrounded by music. He would go to his brother’s studio on the weekends to learn the business. When it was 11, he saw Heavy D perform with his pops, and also ran into Tupac, all within the same day.

Now, 27 years old, Lewis has made a name for himself. His smash hit “Bills” is one of the hottest songs on the charts. Lewis performed it with The Roots on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

Lewis has even collaborated with Nicki Minaj, thanks to his mentor, Dr. Luke, who has worked with Nicki many times before. Lewis, who’s Jamaican, wanted to give Nicki something with a Caribbean feel to it, and the two ran with it. The song, "Trini Dem Girls” was featured on Nicki’s third studio album, The Pinkprint.
