Nick Young Talks Kanye’s “Facts” And Nightmare Wedding Planning With Iggy

Lakers star Nick Young hasn’t had much to celebrate on the court this season, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t having a great year. Nick’s idol Kanye West shouted him out on his new Nike diss track “Facts” and he’s getting ready for his wedding to rapper Iggy Azalea.

Swaggy P recently gave an interview to Billboard where he covered his excitement about yeezy name checking him, and how wedding planning with Iggy is a nightmare.

Where were you when you first heard Kanye West’s “Facts”?

Aw man, I was on my way home, trying to get dressed for my New Year’s event and a couple of my teammates called and texted me [about the song] and I didn’t know what they was talkin’ about. I was like, ‘Y’all playin’, y’all lyin’, man.’ They sent me the SoundCloud [link] and I was like, ‘Aw, it’s over. I’m the man now.’

What are your thoughts on Michael Jordan’s son, Marcus, responding to “Facts”?


There’s nothing you could really say about the issue. What [Kanye’s] been doing with shoes and clothes, 2015 was Kanye’s year. I understand [Marcus] defending his pops but I think we won this year. Adidas won this year.

**Technically Nick by the overall numbers, Adidas actually took a few steps back in 2015 in earnings, lagging behind Nike and Under Armor.


Your fiancee, Iggy Azalea, has been hard at work on the new album. What does Digital Distortion sound like so far? 

Aw man, it’s gonna be the best album of 2016. I got my Swaggy P feature on it so that’s why it’s gon’ blow up. [Laughs] I see how hard she be in the studio and I heard a couple songs. Couple surprises and a lot of features on there. It’ll be dope.

On wedding planning with Iggy:

Whew, a nightmare in its own. I think we should go to the courthouse. [Laughs] It’s tough, it takes a lot of time and compromising and arguing but eventually the women always win. I think [wedding days] should just be women’s day.
