    Nicki being on Stage with Hip Hop Legends and she’s a Hip Hop Legend herself…..that was a History Book Moment. 📖✨💜

    Nicki Minaj once said Slick Rick was her biggest inspiration. Now look at her sharing the same stage as her idol. She is the definition of hard work.

      so inspiring

    • CodenameRawTV says:

      Maybe AN inspiration, but that’s a lie. Normally you can’t tell someone their inspiration, but homegirl knows her biggest inspiration was Lil Kim as her whole foundation from the hair colors, fashion, Barbie persona is all from the blueprint Kim created. Hopefully they can clear the air after all of these years.

    • Erica Lamothe says:

      Nicki doesn’t even sound like Kim. I would give you colors but that’s it

    TYY MTV for always showing love to Nicki and the Hip Hop culture!! 2023 VMAs IS ONE FOR THE BOOKS!!

  6. Caitlyn Jenkins says:

    Nicki’s smile when Red Ruby came on. 🥹 She knows she’s the ONE & not the TWO. Songs were 14 years apart & the crowd knew both verbatim. AN ICON.

  7. Jibee says:

    Why does this performance felt like Hip-hop has been reclaimed back? Lol Props to MTV for doing this! Now this is a Hip-hop Tribute especially with Nicki in it?! It just feels right ❤

    Im so so proud of queen Nicki she’s come along way. I remember when she came out alot of folks would say, “lets see if she can even last 10 yrs”. Now she’s over 10 yrs in the game 16 to be exact. Remember yall it was back in o7 did a couple of tapes then in 2010 she dropped her debut album. And been the queen ever since. There hasn’t been another female like her not ever.
