Young M.A Brings Out Nicki Minaj at 2016 Powerhouse in Philly
Young M.A brought the house down this past weekend at Power 99's Powerhouse in Philadelphia's Wells Fargo Center, causing the crowd to go wild as she brought out special guest Nicki Minaj. In early September, Nicki remixed "OOOUUU" with her own “The Pinkprint Freestyle," a near six minute track. Based on their onstage moment, it's clear the respect is mutual.
"I really just came out here to say shout out to Young M.A for doing her motherfucking thing," Nicki says in the above clip. "Back stage when she met me, she was low-key blushing and shit, smiling and shit."
Photos of the two backstage are included below, though M.A seems to have regained her composure. The connections between the two rappers was furthered a few weeks back when they were both featured in a new ad for Beats by Dre titled “Got No Strings.” DJ Khaled, Pharrell, Amber Rose, Ben Simmons, Steve Buscemi, Michael Phelps, Karen Civil, PartyNextDoor and many others also appear throughout the nearly two-minute clip.
This year has been a huge breakout for Young M.A who, previous to Powerhouse Philly, touched the Barclays Center stage in Brooklyn for Power 105.1's Powerhouse 2016. While she performed a set of her own, she was as well a guest of Jeezy's, who said, "We in Brooklyn right? Shit, I put on for my city, I’ma let people put on for their city too."
