Nicki Minaj pays respect to Queen Latifah
There's no doubt that Queen Latifah paved a path for female rappers that succeeded her - and Nicki Minaj is one who is giving her recognition for it.
Nicki has broken some ground herself, with multiple chart-topping hits and one of the biggest bank accounts in hip hop - which is monumental considering that it's a heavily male-dominated industry. According to XXL magazine, she admitted that Latifah had a major influence on her career and success while speaking with the Queen on her new talk show.
"You've opened so many doors for me and so many other women" she said, as quoted by the news outlet. "To be sitting here doing your show, it's just a great moment for Hip Hop," she said.
Minaj's interview airs live on the talk show later this week.
