Taraji P. Henson Plays Nicki Minaj in ‘SNL’ Skit

Taraji P. Henson made her “SNL” debut this weekend. In one of the many hysterical skits, the “Empire” actress played Nicki Minaj in a mock trailer for the sequel to the animated film Home with “more hip-hop than you can handle.”

Taraji rocked a pink wig while doing her best Nicki impression as the animated alien characters Thwick and Thwack. She also contributed a song called “Hustle Home” to the soundtrack featuring Jim Parsons.

The hip-hop-centric cast also includes Kendrick Lamar, Missy Elliott, Die Antwoord, Rick Ross, and Rihanna.
