Nicki Minaj has been very reclusive since taking a break from social media in December 2017. But TMZ caught the Queens rapper making a mad dash into LAX and was able to ask her about Birdman’s recent proclamation.
The Cash Money Records CEO was in an interview on Beats 1 where he complimented Drake on being the biggest rapper in the world. He then added that Nicki Minaj is the “biggest female ever in hip-hop history.”
Although Birdman acknowledges that Lil' Kim, Missy Elliott and Lauryn Hill took hip-hop to another level, he maintains that Nicki Minaj took it even further with fashion and branding. “She’s an icon,” he states. “She’s got it. Hands down.”
When a TMZ cameraman caught Minaj at LAX on Wednesday (April 4), he asked her if she agreed with Birdman's assertion that she's the best female in hip-hop.
Although the 35-year-old rapper gave TMZ the thumbs up in response while her bodyguard and assistant rushed her into an elevator.
