Recently, Keri Hilson discussed her love for rappers and the rap game. For years, Keri Hilson worked behind the scenes as a songwriter. In late 2006, she decided she wanted to step into the spotlight and planned to release her album in 2007. For unknown reasons, her debut album was delayed.

With the help of Lil Wayne, her single "Turnin' Me On," became a major hit. The popularity of the song helped her land a secure release date for In A Perfect World... Upon its release, the album would become a major success. The album was noted for its hip hop collaborations.

Last year, Keri Hilson returned with her second album and it features the same format. Ever since her 2009 explosion, Hilson has worked with several rappers. When she was asked about her favorite collaboration, Keri Hilson said it was "Turnin' Me On" with Lil Wayne. However, her longtime dream was to record with Nas, which she did on 2008's "Hero."

Along the way, Keri Hilson has also collaborated with T.I., Fabolous, Kanye West, and Rick Ross. Hilson said she loves rap just as much as she loves R&B. While Keri Hilson has love for rappers, she does not see herself dating a rapper anytime soon. The lifestyle most rappers lead is too much for a girl like her. Because of this, she stays away from relationships, outside of the friend zone, with rappers. She has seen how many other R&B ladies, outside of Beyonce have been treated by rappers and made a safe decision.
