Nicki Minaj has shown she gives all the respect to the females who have done it before her, and one of them, who she quoted in her high school year book, is Ms Lauryn Hill.
Yesterday, at the Tidal show in New York, the rapper was reduced to an emotional bag when Ms Hill walked into the building. For the first time, fans got to see how starstruck Minaj can be as she crumpled to the floor, bowing down for the goddess who inspired her.
“I’m in love with you, your spirit, your mind,” Minaj says as she stood up and hugged the smiling Ms Hill.
Adding on her Instagram,
“Excuse me while I have an outer body experience. Shaking, crying, a MESS!!!! this lady is the reason. Omg. The QUEEN. Goddess! The epitome! The bar! The *faints*. Ms Lauryn Hill told me to keep ‘spittin dat fire’. Is this real life!????”
The post has garnered thousands of comments and conversations about who Nicki Minaj truly acknowledges as her Inspiration.
Recall that there has been the endless cold war between Nicki Minaj and Lil Kim over claims that she stole the latter’s identity. Kim dropped songs like ‘Identity Theft’, while Minaj fired back with ‘Stupid Hoe’, shutting down claims that she was inspired by the older rapper.
Well, the Pinkprint rapper has finally let the world know the one who encouraged her to spit bars.
