Appearing on Queen Latifah’s new talk show, both the host and Nicki Minaj had a moment reflecting on the evolution of female rappers. As Nicki gave the Queen props for paving the way, both MCs were an awe of how far females have come in the genre.

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

Nicki then replied giving the mogul much respect stating, “You’ve opened so many doors for me and so many other women 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 on hip-hop,” she said.
