Nicki Minaj and Queen Latifah

Nicki Minaj Pays Respect to Queen Latifah on Talk Show

It was nothing but love and respect when Nicki Minaj sat down with fellow rap mogul Queen Latifah for a taping of her talk show this week. The ladies acknowledged the “full circle moment” during Nicki’s visit to promote her clothing line.

“I’m sitting here with a female rapper on a talk show started by a female rapper,” said Latifah. “This is a moment for me.”

In return, Nicki gave props to the hip-hop pioneer. “You’ve opened so many doors for me and so many other women,” she said. “And it’s insane because I always reference you when I talk about female rappers who’ve like kinda paved the way in terms of a businesswoman and mogul and just all around entertainer, and to be sitting here doing your show is just a great moment for hip-hop.”

The full interview airs Tuesday. Get a sneak peek below.
