The ‘Queen of Rap’, Nicki Minaj, has reciprocated the appreciation she received from rapper and TV host Nick Cannon, who recently claimed that the Queen musician is ‘the GOAT’.
Cannon made the comments during an appearance on The Bootleg Kev podcast, asserting that Minaj is one of the best-ever in the rap game. The conversation began when Kev asked Cannon who he’d choose in a battle between the Trinidadian and Latto. He chose Minaj but expressed his love for Latto.
“First of all, let’s not disrespect Nicki. Nicki is the GOAT, whatever her gender is. She is one of the coldest artists in the last decade. Like, we can’t sleep on her skill, her pen. Sonically, she changed the game,” he said.
Cannon then claimed that Minaj’s verse on Kanye West’s ‘Monster’ exemplifies her brilliance. “Gender aside, sex aside, she’s dope. Only person that she could – to me – that has the same level of talent and we should even [compare] her to is Lauryn Hill or Missy Elliott,” he continued.
One of Minaj’s fan pages picked up the clip, with it eventually landing on her page. She quoted the tweet with a heart emoji to show her love for Cannon’s account.
