Nicki Minaj Pays Respect to Queen Latifah on Talk Show

Nicki Minaj and Queen Latifah

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.

    @rihannanavy, Funny thing is, Rihanna wouldn’t even approve of your delusional ass saying this. She and Nicki are friends.

    Nicki payed her respect and I bet she’ll probably get “that was fake” all up and down this damn comment section. Bitches is so hateful.

    @rihannanavy, Lmao nicki did the kmart shxt for her fans when has the talentless big forehead fake lips hoe of rihanna done something like that for her fans and i’m pretty sure if nicki sticked to pop she would KILL all of the gay popstars just like when she took out starships, pound the alarm & turn me on and besides nicki has WAY more talent than rihanna nicki raps, sings and WRITES, rihanna can BARELLY sing and were not even sure she can even do that cause she’s always hiding behind the autotune and for the record the only fake thing nicki has is her ass while rihanna has a fake nose,lips and i’m not sure about her body.

    Queen Latifah I will never ever respect. My uncle worked on her condo in downtown Jersey city some odd years ago and said she was the biggest CUNT (and id never use that word loosely) to absolutely everyone.

    Nicki Minaj is such a fraud with how she claims she always respects all the females before her. Does she not remember her dissing all the older MC’s before she made it? Claiming their old, they need to sit down, etc… Now shes trying to appear to be Americas sweetheart; no ones buying it.

    There is not one female rapper (Past or Present) that has achieved commercial success equal to Queen Latifah’s, but I believe that Nicki Minaj has the intelligence – Hustle & talent to make those achievements. Nicki will leave a major imprint or Pink Print on Hip-hop’s history as well as the legacy of female rap.

    This bitch Nicki is a fake phony fraud……I agree with bobby she disrespects the fuck outta the other older female rappers to pave the way for her,iggy,azealia,angel, and the other up and coming femcees only those 3 acknowledge the ones b4 them and mean it without turning around dissin them on songs. Now for u delusional barbs calling nicki Queen…..Queen Latifah is the real Queen and not bcuz its in her name,but bcuz of the empire she has build. She’s done it all from rapping, to having her own shows and producing shows,talk shows,movies,plays,covergirl, her own queen collection,pizza hut spokesperson the list goes on and on and on. Her money make nickis money look funny and puts nickis change to shame.

    Andy Reply:

    @EveRyder, 8600 FIRST WEEK SALES THOOOOO!!! LMAO she loves females rappers but she’s not lying when saying they are old and they are done.

    Iggy and Azealia can take a stadium of seats! Not only they don’t do hip hop but they are hypocrite. Azealia beefs even with her grandma and Iggy will d!ck ride anyone to have good image. The only one of them that should be represented as female hip hop is Angel and she isn’t good. In fact, none of the three are good so shut the f-ck up.

    And I don’t know if you can read or you’re simply idiot but the only FEMALE RAPPER in the Forbes list this year was Nicki Minaj. Where was Latifah??? Nicki money make anybody look funny, and you even have the nerve to say “Nicki’s change to shame”, who the f-ck are you? A nobody.

    EveRyder Reply:

    @Andy, u mad hoe? Stay the fuck mad. I’m assuming nicki got ur ragedy ann ass on her payroll bcuz u going hard for the fake phony bitch. Eve been gone for over a decade from the rap scene,but she was touring oversees all that time bcuz her money been long. We will see if nicki can comeback to the rap scene in a decade………lmao off probably the fuck not. She want even last over a decade. Azealia and Angel will lyrically destroy nicki in a rap battle. Iggy is getting more buzz now more than Azealia so she’s coming slowly but surely. U bitchass nigga who the fuck r u…….don’t come for me unless I send for u.

    [Reply]

    Andy Reply:

    @EveRyder, I’m not mad I’m laughing the f-ck of you! Talking about going hard when you’re doing the same haha where is your future sphere to tell me that she will be done in a decade?? where is it? no, oh okay then shut the f.ck up. And, my god, did my eyes are lying? This dumbf-ck think Azealia and Angel are better lyrically???? LMAO! No b!tch, they aren’t like, seriously, dafuq is wrong with you? People that think that are just delusional or want Nicki to look inferior but she isn’t. She’s miles better than most rappers you can mention. How can you call Banks better if all she does is repeat the same content, have the same flow and same beats in all her songs? Angel is a nobody. Iggy is getting more buzz in the POP scene. Hip hop don’t like her electronic songs. Don’t come for you? B!tch you aren’t worthy, I’m just here playing with your dummy a$$ hahaha

    So, therefore please take 8600 sales, I mean, seats! LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL

    EveRyder Reply:

    @Andy, oh bitch no u stfu up………better yet go play in traffic. I’m not a big fan of Azealia but her wordplay is like on another level and the bitch is creative,so ill give her that. On the other hand nicki don’t even have her own identity after 5yrs in the game. She ripped off Lil kims and y’all hate to admit it. That was Eve’s first week sales on her own label so she pockets all her money unlike nicki she has to share hers with baby,slim,and lil wayne. Eve has sold around 20k total. Will nicki in a decade hell fuck no. Angel will kill nicki lyrically and a dummy who say otherwise don’t knw real hip hop. Iggy is doing big things…..getting recognized at award shows,doing shows with katy perry and getting readyyy to tour with Queen bey something nicki been wanting desparately to do. As far as iggy been accepted by the pop world hell isn’t that how nicki got recognized by the crossover crowds by going the pop route? Hell yeah and the hip hop world want let her comeback

    [Reply]

    Andy Reply:

    @EveRyder, and you keep coming!! Let’s teach you a lesson with FACTS:
    1. She didn’t ripped Lil Kim ghostwritten lyrics, neither flow. She was INFLUENCED by her style and Kim wasn’t the first to act slutty in the world so sit.
    2. I don’t see Eve in an Aventador, neither in Forbes HIP-HOP Cash Kings. She might pocket the entire money but I guess she didn’t earned much LMAO.
    3. Are you a f-cking fortune teller??????
    4. You’re the dummy. You really believe Angel is some kind of lyricist? If she is, I don’t see anyone but you praising her for that. She may write her own sh!t but is nothing compared to Minaj writing skills.
    5. Iggy is overhyped. Hip hop people don’t like her because she’s from Australia and use American accent so they feel she’s faking.
    6. You really need to lie? Nicki wanting desperately to tour with Beyonce as supporting act? LMAO, why should she if she can lead her own tours?
    7. Iggy does more electro songs than hip hop. Just because she’s rapping doesn’t make it instantly an urban song. Nicki did hip hop, and pop. Now she wants to focus on hip hop. Why Iggy doesn’t do the same? And hell nah hip hop world isn’t fan of her, you’re making up stuff out of your a$$.
    Ignorance is your new best friend ;*

    @EveRyder, Sorry to burst your bubble but, Iggy got kicked off Beyonce’s tour. KIIII

    EveRyder Reply:

    @Andy, Lmao yep I keep coming for the attention and u keep giving it to me just like I knew u would. No I’m not a fortune teller,but u playing one by sayin kim had ghostwritten lyrics…….oh did kim call u on the phone and tell u directly out her mouth? Oh ok ill wait for u to tell another lie. Stevie wonder can even see that nicki stole lil kims image and made it her own from the colored wigs yes bcuz kim was the first femcee to wear colored and printed wigs and pasties. Kim was the first rapper to dress sluty and rap xplicit lyrics and different deliveries. If angel was a nobody she wouldn’t have gotten signed to a record deal r be chosen to be on xxl freshman class. So she is good and have been co signed by other rappers. Iggy is accepted by the hip hop community if she wasn’t she would not get invited for radio and interviews and to perform. Hip hop community will not take nicki back bcuz she’s a sellout and tried to straddle the fence to early in her career. I’m waiting for u to respond back bcuz I knw u will eventho u say I’m a dumbfuck and ignorant.

    Andy Reply:

    @EveRyder, you keep the ignorance dumbfck, I see you didn’t get sh!t, but is last time I reply since you’re really dumb and there’s not really much else to say.

    Kim had ghostwriters. Is something people noticed with her album, it had Biggie written all over it and a lot more noticed after Biggie died because have you seen Kim’s rhymes lately? They are sh!t, I doubt that’s the same Kim from Hardcore. Even Azealia knows she has ghostwriters.

    Nicki has said that she was influenced by Kim’s style, that’s something we all know but Kim doesn’t own patents of her style so shut the f-ck up with that.

    Angel is a nobody, I dunno why you keep calling her. She’s going nowhere, you’re the only delusional person who really believes she’s some type of successful rapper, so please shut the fck up with that too.

    And hell no, just because she goes to radio interviews doesn’t make her an accepted rapper. Her songs are barely on pop stations, let alone URBAN radios.

    Nicki did pop and she said before the release of Starships that she wanted do pop and last time I checked the first half of PF:RR was straight raps so I don’t see how she’s a sell out. And she’s back baby! SIX Billboard hot 100 entries this year, FOUR TOP 20 R&B/Hip-Hop Billboard chart entries, and 9 of her 19 features had at least +1million airplay audience in URBAN and RHYTHMIC RADIOS. Nicki’s already back in hip hop.

    Your YouTube and Rap-Up knowledge about hip hop have nothing to do with the real one in streets.

Queen latifah got albums,movies,plays, talk shows,hosting awards,covergirl, different awards winner,bookoos of endorsements,own record and prducing label, producing shows. The list goes on. That’s why I can’t respect the forbes list bcuz the leave ppl out. Queen L money makes nickis money look funny and short. Don’t ever compare these two again.

    channel_ROMAN Reply:

    @EveRyder, Just because she has all that doesn’t mean she’s successful at it. I’ve never heard of a QL artist, hosting awards don’t get you paid 10 Million dollars, plays don’t get you much money if that was the case Michelle and Fantasia would’ve made Forbez too. No shade she do get her coins but I don’t think she’s ranking in 30 Million a year. If that was the case she should be in Jay and Diddy category.

    Nicki is doing the same things that Latifah did. Movies, endorsements, and all that shit, being some1 that people can look up to in a business sense. Even if u don’t like nicki’s music u can’t knock her hustle and grind

    “Queen Latifah is someone who I tip my hat to because Queen Latifah looked at it and said, “Okay, wait, hmm, I mean I wanna be 40 years old rapping. I — the hip-hop fans may not want to hear me when I’m 40 years old rapping. So I’m going to move in a way so that every aspect of who I am can be seen. Queen Latifah does musicals, movies, voice overs for cartoons — is she a sellout or is she winning? So these other b-tches that only did rap and now they’re washed, and they’re living in, you know, low-income housing — is that winning? Just so that a n—-s in the street can give me a f-cking dap? The same n—-s that didn’t buy my album any f-cking way, that downloaded the sh-t? Get the f-ck out of here.” -”Press Conference,” iTunes exclusive

    Just cause Queen Latifa did all that does not mean she’s the real Queen. Queen Latifa didn’t do all that while she was releasing music. Nicki has done almost everything Queen Latifa has done within a 5 years. Nicki doing shit that most these female rappers couldn’t do and in so lesser time.

    DISCLAIMER: This is a rant.

    This is why the black community will never get ahead – because all we care about is “making money” no matter what it costs. We salute hustlers and drug dealers, even though their product is destroying the communities. I can’t tell you how many young black girls I have come across who aspire to be like Nicki and are exploring sex way before their years – is this worth the millions she’s making?

    And before someone brings up the “oh, it’s the parent’s sole responsibility to raise their children.” Uh, no. It takes a VILLAGE. Your parents don’t raise you in a vacuum. If we can hold teachers, doctors, product developers, food vendors and other professionals responsible for creating an environment that is safe and life-promoting, we should hold our entertainers responsible as well.

  27. Nicki is A poor Example for Black Girls

    I do not and will not ever respect Nicki Minaj. She’s a hypocrite. She’s a bad example for young black women. She is also becoming the same female rapper that she said she would not become. On top of that she is very selfish. I do not like her and do not wish her well. I need someone refreshing who can change the mindset for females in hip hop without selling their soul the way Queen Latifah, MC Lyte, Lauryn Hill, Missy Elliott, or Eve did. Im tired of the stereotypical female rappers like Nicki Minaj, Trina, Foxy Brown, and Lil Kim. We have seen the sex sells image. I need someone who is going to really wow me and still be feminine and win at the same time. Nicki would be okay with me if she was not selling sex, posting nude pics on Instagram, Twerking on videos and instagram, and exploiting her body.
